The fact that more than 4,000 Galileo GALAXY sound processor units have been sold demonstrates just how successful the network platform has been in the music industry. This way of networking stand-alone loudspeakers allows sound to be optimally controlled in spaces of any size – a concept also referred to as spatial sound. Spatial sound design can be a complex process. Aspects might involve ensuring, in a concert, that the listening experience is identical from every position in the auditorium or, in a play, accounting for the fact that an actor might enter the stage from the left and leave it on the right. To simplify the configuration of such factors, Meyer Sound wanted to develop an iPad app that would enable users to control and automate the spatial sound design on a “live” basis. We were brought in to act as the technological partner for the implementation of the app.
For 40 years, Meyer Sound has been associated with sound of the highest quality along with reliable hardware. Initially founded as a manufacturer of active loudspeakers, the company’s product portfolio now extends from compact studio speakers to complete sound installations for cinemas, auditoriums, and concert halls as well as sound setups at any scale. The launch of the Galileo GALAXY network platform ushered in a new era for the company – one in which a network of speakers can be controlled and configured in different zones.

Spacemap Go is a fundamental component of Meyer Sound’s product road map. In a team composed of designers, developers, sound engineers, and other experts from tarent and Meyer Sound, we collaborated on the app for more than six months. In order to exploit the full potential of the client’s hardware, all parts of the team had to work together seamlessly – a particular challenge given the team’s geographical spread across multiple locations in Europe and the US. We also significantly exceeded the originally planned range of functions in a very short time by using agile methods and, with Spacemap Go, are combining large elements of previously discrete software applications within a single compact app.
