Meyer Sound introduces AmieTM—the first studio monitor from the company in more than two decades. Developed to meet the demanding needs of Skywalker Sound, Amie brings a level of clarity professionals can trust, making it ideal for critical production environments where accurate translation to larger systems is imperative.
Amie made its debut at the Sound for Film event on September 26 at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, Calif.
Tasked by Skywalker Sound to create a new studio monitor with precision translation, exceptional power, and a great price point, Meyer Sound has created a product that brings tremendous accuracy for everything from the intricate details of dialogue to dynamic music tracks to explosive action sequences.
“Amie brings an incredibly smooth response across the spectrum,” says Leslie Shatz, Wildfire Post Studios sound designer and re-recording mixer who has worked with a beta version of Amie. “It is very accurate for dialogue EQ evaluation in postproduction and despite its light weight, it can handle as much power as I need even when monitoring very loud sequences. And most importantly, its translation is spot-on when I listen to my work in larger mix theaters including the Meyer Sound-equipped Wildfire South Stage.”
Designed as a linear sound system to reproduce every sonic element with utmost accuracy and consistency, Amie extends the exceptional translation of the Meyer Sound Acheron screen channel line to studio monitoring. Amie features an innovative waveguide design that offers exceptionally uniform coverage and precision imaging. With its extremely flat frequency and phase response and low distortion, Amie allows sound professionals to listen for long periods of time without the typical strain and fatigue.
Built to last in Berkeley, Calif. with the highest quality materials and Meyer Sound’s renowned quality control, Amie is the ideal studio monitor for film, broadcast or gaming post-production.
Amie will begin shipping in November. Orders can be placed directly via the Meyer Sound online store and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information or to place an order, visit http://meyersound.com/product/amie/.
