PSSO Compact Line Array – the simulation software

July 28th, 2011 Posted in PSSO, Videos, worth knowing Tags: , , , , ,


In order to facilitate the use of the Compact Line Array, PSSO presents a simulation software for the users. This software is based on the Engine of RAY-END (former GPA). We would like to introduce this software to you with a little introduction and five short tutorial videos.

If you have not dealt with Line Arrays in general, we recommend to read the article „The line array in theory and practice“ explaining the basics of line array technology and the PSSO Compact Line Array.

The simulation software is very intuitive and only presents those functions really needed in sound engineering. Read more »

Digital loudspeaker management – part 2

Lautsprecher Management

We want to complete the list of tools described in the first part. We start with equalizers – also a vital part of oudspeaker controllers. The frequency range of a PA-system can easily be corrected with fully parametric equalizers. While mixer equalizers are mostly semi-parametric, i. e. only amplitude and frequency can be changed, a fully parametric equalizer can also change the filter bandwidth or shape of the bell. Consider that a high filter bandwidth (Q-factor) equals a small bandwidth and vice versa. As already mentioned, too harsh adjustements of the frequency response have to be avoided because the phase problems make the positive effects of the correction void. Here, less is often more!

Digital loudspeaker management

Lautsprecher Management

Digital loudspeaker controllers are the heart of every modern PA-system. Controllers assign the matching signal to every speaker, balance inconsistencies in the frequency range and protect the system from overload.

Loudspeaker controllers normally consist of these three important components:

– the hardware including the connectors and interfaces, the transducers, the operating elements and the housing.

– the firmware includes algorithms for signal processing, i.e. equalizers, crossovers, limiters and delays.

– the software providing a graphical surface on the user’s computer for adjusting all controller functions and settings and manage complete setups. Read more »

On the Road with PSSO’s Compact Line Array

PSSO - S.Oliver

When we started to focus on the PSSO CLA at the end of 2007, we thought its primary application are sports halls and other public buildings or venues. Consequently, the first locations where the CLA was installed during and shortly after its development stage were sports halls in the vicinity of Würzburg. The CLA was intended to serve as fixed PA system at these locations and if necessary, could be complemented or replaced by a mobile PA system. Hence, our main focus was on vocal transmission and canned music. Initially, we did not urge the use in the rental sector for live shows. Read more »

PSSO CLA Compact Line Array

When it comes to an investment of a line array, although our CLA is far cheaper in comparison to others: testing the system is essential. Due to this you always have the option to hire the CLA and to test it at some event of yours.

If you like to find out more about our line array we recommend to visit the CLA’s homepage. At you can have a closer look at the different configurations and the components. Also worth a look, the brand’s page:

After testing comes waiting – not here at Steinigke! We permanently store all components for you to receive your orders as fast as possible.
