Adamson Systems Engineering is bringing a major update to the FletcherMachine Spatial Audio Rendering Engine at Booth C9547. Unveiled in 2022, Version 2 of the software has a bevy of new features, further enhancing the capabilities and workflow of the system.

The FletcherMachine system is available in three versions. FletcherMachine Virtual is a free, stand-alone application for Windows and MacOS that allows users to design immersive environments on-the-go with headphones, while gaining hands-on experience that will translate seamlessly to the full version. FletcherMachine Stage is a 3U rack mountable hardware unit, offering up to 128x128 in- and outputs at 96kHz sample rate and just 1.3 ms latency. A 5-inch color touchscreen allows quick access to critical functions such as system monitoring and I/O routing. FletcherMachine Traveler brings the functionality of the Stage engine to a more portable format, offering a maximum of 96 channels with variable in- and output counts. Pulling everting together is the FletcherMachine Remote, a portable application for Windows and MacOS, offering a highly user-friendly interface and bringing the power of FletcherMachine to your fingertips.

FletcherMachine V2’s expanded features include:

  • Improved speaker management allows for both 2D and 3D setups in the same session. 
  • New connectivity tools include dedicated DiGiCo and AVID plug-ins, and on-board ADM-OSC allows for easy interoperability with other mixing desks and audio workstations.
