KRK Releases ERGO™, Powerful Room Audio Correction System

There's no disputing that a great sounding studio room is better for mixing than a boxy little bedroom with ringing resonances and peaks and troughs in the bass response. So the ERGO; Room Audio Correction System, from KRK Systems looks to be an intriguing solution for producers with less than desirable mixing quarters. ERGO is an acronym for Enhanced Room Geometry Optimization and it claims to be able to 'improve any studio mixing space by correcting for "real world" acoustic problems.'
  • 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.
  • It 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. It also acts as a nifty little volume controller for the speaker system, it's due out in April and is expected to carry a price tag of around £399.
