The Input EQ incorporates the Lake first raised cosine Mesa EQ, that gives sound engineers a faster, more effective optimization tool – one that can truly match the asymmetrical responses of loudspeakers. While other processors provide standard symmetrical boost and cut functions, the Mesa EQ offers asymmetrical filtering, with the ability to separate the sides of a parametric section, change center frequencies, and independently adjust slopes.Read more
Bessel, Butterworth and Linkwitz-Riley crossovers are provided, selectable up to 48 dB per octave. The crossover interface also allows you to quickly add low shelf, high shelf, and parametric filters to each output. These filters use the latest in digital signal processing technology, maintaining their symmetrical shape at high frequencies.Read more
Linear phase crossovers are another feature separating Lake Processing technology from ordinary processors. Linear phase crossovers can match traditional crossover slopes, such as 24 dB per octave and 48 dB per octave, when desired. But they are also capable of transition slopes exceeding 180 dB per octave.
These slopes offer dramatic benefits when applied to various types of loudspeaker arrays. Off-axis lobing and cancellation between loudspeakers are dramatically reduced. Greater control over slopes means that different speaker cabinet types can be more easily mixed and matched. Also, a loudspeaker’s impulse response is significantly improved, providing a time-coherent wavefront.
Additionally, improvements of up to 3 dB or more in acoustic output power may be expected in some frequency ranges.Read more
LimiterMax is a significant advancement in limiter technology, combining an exclusive true-RMS limiter, an advanced peak limiter capable of instantaneous attack time (adjustable by the user), and sophisticated signal processing.
Iso-Float Ground Isolation: A Better Way to Avoid Ground Loops.
Iso-Float technology combines the benefits of transformer-coupled isolation with the advantages of clean, direct-coupled inputs.
In the Lake processor input section, the audio converters are galvanically isolated, and not connected to the main ground. High-speed transformers and opto-isolators create a barrier between the processor and possible grounding aberrations from the outside electrical environment.
Additionally, you can change the grounding of any input or output remotely through the Lake Controller software interface. While isolation transformers are typically an expensive option for many processors, Iso-Float is standard in the LM Series devices.Read more
