Spacemap Go

Experience the Ease and Creativity of Spatial Sound Design

The Power of Galaxy, with an Intuitive iPad App

Spacemap Go is a spatial sound design and mixing tool that leverages the processing power of Meyer Sound's Galileo GALAXY Network Platform in an intuitive iPad app. With thousands of GALAXY processors worldwide, Spacemap Go has the widest reach of any spatial sound design and mixing tool. No other sound design tool offers so much power and control, right at your fingertips.

Unlock Your True Potential

With Spacemap Go, anyone can design both simple and sophisticated multichannel installations without specialized training. Spacemap Go liberates you to focus on the art of your craft without the burden of complicated interfaces and confusing algorithms. Even first-time users create spatial sound designs in minutes, thanks to Spacemap Go's simple iPad touchscreen interface. Spacemap Go is free in the Apple App Store.

Sound Design for Everyone

For decades, Spacemap technology has powered the world's most complex sound productions, from Cirque du Soleil to Broadway. Now, those same creative capabilities are available to every audio pro, whether you design soundscapes for theatre, concerts, sound art installations, or houses of worship.

It’s All in the Palm of Your Hand

The Spacemap Go iPad app provides total creative control with the swipe of a finger. It’s so simple, any audio engineer — from sound designers to front of house engineers, musicians, and DJs — can master the app in minutes. Get up and running quickly with built-in templates and presets. Execute complex moves in seconds with Spacemap Go's grab-and-go touchscreen interface. Snapshots manage static placement or dynamic movement of sound. Use multiple iPads at the same time to collaborate onsite. Experience Spacemap Go in action.


Reimagine the Way You Create

Compatible with Live and Automated Workflows

Spacemap Go works seamlessly in live workflows, providing the power to make edits and plot panning in real time with just a swipe of a finger. Open Sound Control (OSC) support provides integration with sound design software such QLab as well as DAWs including Ableton Live, Pro Tools, Digital Performer, Logic Pro X, and Reaper. RTTrPM protocol support allows integration with real-time tracking systems including BlackTrax and others. Console plug-ins are in development.

Go Ahead, Think Big

Spacemap Go is highly scalable, so you can take your spatial sound design from a ballroom to an auditorium, arena, or festival. Spacemap Go makes it easy to configure systems with up to 32 inputs and 256 outputs using multiple GALAXY processors. Unlike other spatial platforms, Spacemap Go can be used with any loudspeaker configuration, not just those defined by a manufacturer or system designer.

Take More Control With Compass

Gain even more robust control of the GALAXY Network Platform when you use Spacemap Go in tandem with Meyer Sound’s Compass and Compass Go software: Handle creative programming and real-time operation in Spacemap Go, while managing EQ, delay, network parameters, and other device settings in Compass.

Build a World-Class Audio Ecosystem

Combine Spacemap Go, GALAXY, Compass, and Meyer Sound loudspeakers to build a complete, end-to-end solution that leverages the world’s most intuitive design tools, most powerful processors, and — a Meyer Sound hallmark — the world’s most exceptional sound systems.

Solutions

Spacemap Go in use

Concerts

Spacemap Go has not only become my choice spatial mixing tool for its flexibility, but also because it's by far the friendliest tool out there for new users.

Dennie Miller Front of House Engineer

Theatre

Spacemap Go lets me automate the spatial mix in ways that I would not have been able to without it — and certainly not as quickly. The workflow is great and I can keep my focus on being creative.

Leon Rothenberg Tony Award-winning Sound Designer

Museums

We used Spacemap Go extensively on Primal Energies; it’s the ‘digital brain’ behind all that is happening with dynamic spatialization of sound ... for my purposes, Spacemap Go is fantastic.

Spacemap Go Release Notes

New Features

Available on iPadOS Software Only

Spacemaps

Spacemaps can provide many ways of matrix mixing to a set of loudspeakers. The matrix mix result is a combination of the selection of up to two Spacemaps for a channel, position on overlaid Spacemaps, and the Spacemap Crossfade value. Spread provides control over how much of the sound is distributed to all speakers in the Spacemap. Once Spacemaps are defined and selected for a venue, their use is quite intuitive.

Trajectories

Trajectories are time-sequenced paths of sound. Spacemap Go can play trajectories once or indefinitely, with modulation of scale in the X and Y directions, as well as rotation, rate, and position offset. This provides for quick access to spatial effects.

Mix View

Groups of individual input channel controls are provided. The Mix View in Spacemap Go organizes channels into four groups of eight.

Position

Independent positioning of 32 inputs within the Spacemap. Each input may use a different Spacemap configuration.

Level, Mute, Solo

Spacemap Go provides these new controls for Matrix Row level that are not available in Compass.

Channel Links

Channel links allow for odd/even pairs to be controlled in a synchronized fashion. Relative position of the pair of channels may be set to a number of modes including mono (both channels have the same position), near (channels are closely separated), far (greater separation), and mirrored about X and Y axis. Level, Mute, Solo, Spread, and Crossfade are linked directly for Channel pairs.

Channel Page

The Channel view shows detailed information for a single channel. Additional control is provided for trajectory playback as well as providing a larger touch display.

  • Channel > Spacemap Selection, Trajectory Selection, Rate, Offset, ScaleX, ScaleY, Rotation:
    These modulate the position of the trajectory and are selected in the Channel view. Scaling may be adjusted via “Touch Trajectory” mode, whereby the trajectory may be pinched, expanded, rotated, and repositioned in realtime during playback.
  • Channel > Matrix Level:
    The top of the Channel displays matrix levels for the selected channel. The end user may need to control a channel’s matrix levels with numerical input.
  • Channel > Recall Safe:
    A channel may be designated so that parameters will not be recalled either via Mix or Channel snapshots.

Setlist Page

The Setlist view provides control of Mix and Channel Snapshots.

  • Setlist > Mix Snapshots:
    These snapshots apply to all 32 channels, and include link status, channel labels, Spacemap selection, trajectory and parameter assignments, and whether or not the trajectory is to be played back upon recall. Each Mix Snapshot has its own list of member Channel Snapshots.
  • Setlist > Channel Snapshots:
    These Snapshots apply to a single channel and will allow the user to position statically or start movement on the fly. Mix Snapshots may be recalled from Spacemap Go or via external OSC recall. Multiple Channel Snapshots may be grouped so that they are recalled simultaneously.

Create Page

  • Spacemaps may be created and edited. These may be locked and shared with other users.
  • Trajectories may be created and edited.
  • Individual Spacemaps or Trajectories may be shared and imported.

System Page

  • System status is available for diagnostics
  • Selected GALAXY modules are listed
  • Inputs view shows how the Inputs are allocated to Spacemap Go Channels
  • Outputs are listed, organized by module
  • System IP Configuration is where IP Address and Subnet mask are made here
  • System > Inputs
    Shows how the Inputs are allocated to Spacemap Go Channels, including whether audio source for a channel is Analog, AES3, or AVB. The AVB connection may be made in Spacemap Go.
  • System > Outputs
    Help the user determine how to number Spacemap output numbers.
  • System > OSC Connections
    Enabling / disabling mappings for QLab, BlackTrax, D-Mitri, and Consoles are made here. This item may be renamed, because strictly speaking BlackTrax does not use OSC. We also may rename the “QLab”, “D-Mitri” and “Console” mappings to be more generic.
  • System > File Management
    Clear Project, Open Project, Save Project, Save Project As…, Save to Flash, Import/Export Spacemap and Trajectory functions are supported.
  • System > System Configuration
    Spacemap Go can configure any group of GALAXY into a Spacemap System. The configuration is done up-on connection to an unconfigured system, and can be tested with Virtual GALAXY in Spacemap Mode in Compass. The user specifies from what module inputs or AVB sources provide the up to 32 sources for the Spacemap Channels.

Compass and Spacemap Go integration

Spacemap Go and Compass Control Software can be used together. Compass provides the option for Spacemap Mode for Virtual GALAXY, and matrix control point management in Compass was done in such a way that the additional controls used by Spacemap Go are supported without locking out user entry in Compass.
