The ACS Live! Ambient Processor brings your Live! monitors to life. Once connected the live ambient microphones are activated and the ability to hear is restored and the feeling of being isolated completely removed.
This truly is a game changing product for on-stage performers.
When In-ear monitoring (IEM) was first introduced it really was a 'game changer'. Instead of standing in front of wedge speakers, artists had total freedom to move around the stage and receive a much more individual and 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. ACS worked with Garwood Communications, the first to market with IEM, to develop custom moulded soft silicone earphones that delivered fantastic audio at the lowest levels. The high level of isolation from these innovative earphones is arguably one of the best features of custom IEM's but it is also its greatest flaw. How often do you see a performing musician with one ear piece dangling down from their ear, or removing and replacing them during their performance?
This practice has been adopted because while wearing the IEM's they cannot hear the audience or other band members, this can often leave them feeling detached and isolated from their surroundings. In extreme cases, this practice can lead to very serious hearing damage in the unprotected ear and in turn can negatively impact on the quality of their performance. With our Live Ambient Processor we have completely overcome this issue and once again are introducing a game changing product into the industry.
