Space is a proprietary multifunction digital signal processor, and the backbone of the Definition active acoustics system. Space enables us to inject the sound of the room itself back into the space, resulting in the most natural sounding reverberation possible.
Space communicates over the Audinate Dante™ audio network, and processes a maximum of 8 loudspeaker drive channels per processor. Multiple processors may be combined to handle larger rooms and systems.
Immersive audio routing
For our historical sanctuary we wanted to find a way to modernize our sound system and acoustic design while maintaining the character that our congregation has loved for generations.
The VenueFlex Definition Process, along with their Space Processor, allows us to use a pipe organ in our traditional service and a rock band in our contemporary service, all while maintaining the sonic character unique to both worship styles.

Adaptive Low Frequency Room Compensation
Space continually samples the subwoofer drive signals from an installed audio system, and produces complementary and adaptive signals to drive numerous low-frequency control loudspeakers distributed around the room. This creates tighter, more controlled sub-bass response for an improved audio experience.
Synthetic Acoustical Enhancement
Venueflex prepares the Space processor with a unique and accurate acoustical “signature” that matches the acoustical performance of the room in which it is being installed. By selectively routing signals through the processor, the natural reflective sound of the room can be lifted and controlled artistically with much greater spatial realism than conventional “reverb” processors. Reflections are rendered through an array of purpose-built loudspeakers distributed throughout the room.
Immersive Audio Processing
Space allows “dry” immersive audio inputs from a mixing console to be routed, timed and distributed properly to the same loudspeakers used for adaptive acoustics. This allows “surround” type mixing, console-based effects or theatrical audio content to be distributed spatially throughout the room with no additional investment in hardware.
