ADVANCED IMPULSE™ DSP MODULE
What does it do for me?
Mackie’s filtering technology is not your typical speaker processing. The goal of our Advanced Impulse™ DSP is to remove all the anomalies that loudspeakers and horns contribute to a signal, from “honkiness” or “squelch” to "mushy" low end, effectively making the drivers "invisible" and output nothing but perfect, clean sound. By more intelligently (and more thoroughly) employing the benefits of FIR filtering, Advanced Impulse DSP eliminates undesired acoustic anomalies across the entire dispersion zone (horizontal and vertical), as well as frequency range and time domain.
How it's done
The main way this is accomplished is by measuring the negative frequency response and time domain impacts that each transducer and horn in the system introduces – on axis as well as off – and reversing/correcting for those anomalies before the signal hits the speaker. The result is the output from the speaker is fully corrected for flat, clear, time-aligned, and smooth sound throughout the entire time, space, and response domains.
When setup time is limited, changes need to happen on the fly, or you just want to get your system going without extra hassle, the last thing you need is the controls on your loudspeakers being difficult.
The DRM Control Dashboard™ starts with a big, bright, full-color display that is easy to read and offers unmatched visual feedback on levels, adjustments, and more. The default window keeps you informed on every critical setting at a glance. Big green level meters let you know clearly when you have signal and if it is clipping.
But how do I control it? One single knob, that's it. Spin to select what you want, push in, set it how you like it, done.
Loaded with advanced features
The DRM18S is packed with innovative technology, including Impulse DSP for peak performance. Experience reference-quality sound — even at high SPLs — thanks to precision acoustic correction, while linear-phase FIR filtering minimizes inherent anomalies, phase issues, and muddy bass, resulting in punchy, accurate low-frequency reinforcement. Setup is a snap, thanks to a user-adjustable variable crossover point that allows you to match the DRM18S to any speaker system, plus a DRM-specific mode for full-range DRM speakers. You also get an Alignment Delay control for delay stacks, along with a cardioid mode for easy setup of a directional subwoofer array. Save and recall up to six user presets, and benefit from Mackie’s DRM Control Dashboard, which includes a high-contrast, full-color display and quick, 1-knob access to configuration, processing, and more.
