ACS Live! Ambient Processor

ACS Live! Ambient Processor


A brief history

When in-ear monitoring was first introduced it really was a game changer. Instead of standing in front of wedge speakers, artists had total feedom to move around the stage and receive a much more detailed mix. To keep sound levels at the ear low it was necessary to provide good isolation to avoid competitive monitoring from the ambient on stage sound.

However if the performing musician cannot hear the audience or other band members they can feel detached and isolated from their surroudings. With the ACS Live! Ambient noise processor they have cmpletely overcome this issue and once again introducing a game changing product into the industry.

Lets go LIve

The key to this products success is the microphones; with this in mind ACS have selected the best omni directional microphones available. They have a esponse curve which matches the natural hearing response of the ear and the positioning of the microphones gives a very natural sounding ambient experience with full 3D spatiality.

The usual mix is fed into the pack via the 3.5mm line-in, the ambient signal can then be mixed onto the input using the gain adjustment dial. ACS have built in a PAD option in the menu which is adjusted using the NAV switch on the side of the pack. The PAD feature is there so the Ambient Pack can be used in very loud environments without causing the microphones to distort. In the menu is also an A.L.C.(Automatic Level Control) option which is a compression system built into the DSP (Digital Signal Processor), this is very useful in rehersal and sound checking situations where there is a contant change in volume and the risk of loud spikes in volume. With ALC activated quieter sounds will be amplified to be heard easier and loud spikes will be compressed to give an extra level of protection and to keep a more consistent ambient volume level at the ear.
