The Cleo MK3 is a powerful digital signal processor using the Ohm Spyder software, incorporating the same capabilities as the Oyster plus new and extended functionality, scaled up to meet the needs of the most demanding applications. The unit features 4 analogue inputs, a digital stereo AES3 input, and 8 analogue outputs. The comprehensive DSP system includes a flexible routing matrix and a fully adjustable signal chain on each input and output channel. Multiple units can be controlled remotely over a wired or wireless network by connecting to a router via the Ethernet port, and the Spyder software contains customisable grouping functionality to quickly configure more than one unit. The Cleo can also be controlled via direct connection to a computer using the USB port, or the unit’s front panel controls can be used to adjust any setting manually – however, once a setup is complete the front panel can be locked via software, making the unit tamper-proof. The Cleo’s on-board memory has 100 preset slots, and once the data has been loaded the unit can function fully stand-alone.
The DSP system features a wide selection of parametric EQ and crossover filter types. Zero-attack peak limiters and true RMS compressors are available to protect loudspeakers from excessive voltage peaks and power, or to shape the dynamics of the audio. A delay of up to 1 second can be added to each input and output separately, which in combination with the phase switch allows the sound from multiple speakers to be accurately aligned. The analogue inputs feature an electrically balanced input stage, accepting signals of up to 24 dBu peak (12.3 V) which match any audio source on the market today. The 8 outputs are protected by relays which switch the signal on only when the DSP is operational, preventing clicks and pops on startup, shutdown or during firmware updates. With the Cleo’s network control and extended DSP capabilities, no matter what the scale of your installation or touring setup is, full control over the sound system is in your hands.
