Antelope Audio has announced a significant addition to its Galaxy 32 Synergy Core's functionality, bringing surround and immersive audio monitoring control and speaker calibration functionality to its flagship interface.
The new features allow users to configure and control a surround/immersive monitoring setup of up to 16 channels, or 9.1.6 Dolby Atmos. Speaker calibration aims to make room correction easier, and monitoring control features make surround workflow quicker and easier, claims Antelope.
The new surround and immersive audio functionality is now available to new and existing Galaxy 32 Synergy Core users via a free firmware and software update.
