KRK Systems® Releases ERGO™, Powerful Room Audio Correction System [ Winter NAMM 2008 ]

Latest technology provides a sophisticated room analysis and correction system

Hollywood, Fla. – (January 17, 2007) – KRK Systems, a leading manufacturer of studio monitors and recording control room solutions, is proud to announce the release of ERGO, a digital room analysis and correction system. ERGO (Enhanced Room Geometry Optimization) is compatible with all recording and monitoring systems and improves any studio mixing space by correcting for “real world” acoustic problems. With an MSRP of $799, ERGO delivers the most sophisticated room correction at a fraction of the cost of traditional room treatments.

The ERGO connects to a PC via Firewire when it is performing its room analysis, but since all correction processing resides in ERGO, no overhead is needed from the computer audio system. This means that ERGO can function in pure analog systems since it can work as a stand-alone room correction/speaker control unit after room analysis is complete. The ERGO hardware contains a thousand precision filters to control the audio environment, adapting and correcting virtually any mixing space, from home-based digital audio workstations to professional recording studios. In short, ERGO makes any monitor system more accurate by reducing “bad” room sound, resulting in mixes that translate well to any listening environment.

In developing ERGO, KRK teamed up with the acoustics experts at Lyngdorf Audio and integrated their patented “Room Perfect” 3D room analysis and correction algorithms to provide the best room correction solution available. The technology analyzes and compensates for undesirable room acoustics which can negatively impact audio mixdowns. “Lyngdorf is the world-leader in room correction technology,” says Tony Rodrigues, Vice-President of Technology and Business Development for KRK Systems. “ERGO melds this technology into a real-world form factor with controls that are relevant to any recording or audio processing environment.”

In addition to world-class room correction, ERGO also acts as a speaker switcher and master volume control and creates a seamless full range monitors-plus-sub system with subwoofer integration. ERGO is also a 4-in, 6-out Firewire audio interface that easily interfaces with PC and MAC hardware and audio software, ERGO provides high-quality audio through its use of 120dB SNR digital-to-analog converters and phase-accurate signal processing. KRK further incorporates Firewire and S/PDIF input for digital connections to DAWs such as Pro Tools and other systems. A high quality analog volume control and headphone output are also provided in the system.

“Getting audio to sound great in different environments is the true measure of a user’s craft and monitoring system, “contends Tony Rodrigues “Adding ERGO to a mixing environment is one of the best ways to ensure mixes translate to different surroundings while getting the most out of recording monitors”. “

With an MSRP of $799, ERGO, due out in April, will be a cost-effective and valuable tool in any recording artist, enthusiast, or professional sound engineers’ audio arsenal.
