Lake is delighted to announce that the LM 44 digital audio processor has been nominated for a prestigious TEC Award for outstanding technical achievement, one of the pro-audio industry’s industry accolades.
Earlier this month, the TEC Foundation for Excellence in Audio announced the nominees in the Technical Achievement categories for the 28th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards, to be held Friday, January 25, 2013 at the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA. The LM 44 was nominated in the Amplification Hardware/Studio & Sound Reinforcement category.
The nominations, comprised of 20 categories of Technical Achievement in product design, are based on product entries by audio manufacturers and were made by a select panel of 130 professionals in numerous audio specialties. Products and projects released and in commercial use during the period of September 1, 2011 to August 31, 2012, were eligible for nomination.
The LM 44 is a powerful, full-featured Digital Audio System Processor based on the highly acclaimed Lake Processing technology, which builds on the run-away success of the LM 26, and marking another major step for the Lake brand under the stewardship of Sweden’s Lab.gruppen. Since its launch in 2011, it has found its way onto the regular inventories of many major rental companies across the world, including the likes of Britannia Row, SSE Audio and Adlib.
Identical in many respects to the LM 26 Digital Audio Loudspeaker Processor, the LM 44 is distinguished primarily by a different input/output configuration. The LM 44 provides four analog input and four analog outputs, in contrast to the LM 26’s 2-in/6-out. In addition, the LM 44 accommodates 8-in/8-out AES3 and 4-in/8-out Dante digital audio transport. The LM 44 benefits from the latest implementation of Lake’s iconic ‘Mesa EQ’ configuration, utilising 4 Mesa modules, each with an independent input mixer and output signal processing chain.
Online voting will begin in November among members of various professional audio organizations, and qualified professionals subscribing to audio and music products trade publications.
