Martin Audio MLA suite of products is still proving a hit for Old Barn Audio. The MLA was originally brought to market around four years ago and has been growing ever since. So here’s a brief summary of where we think each MLA fits into the market:
The main MLA is used for large-scale touring sound reinforcement for outdoor festivals, stadia, arenas and concert halls, as well as premium fixed installations in large concert halls, theatres and sports venues.
The MLA Compact is the second in the range, bringing the revolutionary cellular technology behind MLA to a wider range of touring and installed sound applications.
Ideal applications for the MLA Compact are premium touring sound reinforcement for medium-size venues as fixed installations in concert halls, theatres, ballrooms and larger houses of worship, as well as side hung for MLA festival as well as arena systems.
The baby of the family, the Martin Audio MLA Mini is more suited to small to medium music venues, corporate events and smaller houses of worship. The next generation of its Martin Audio MLA (Multi-cellular Loudspeaker Array) technology, MLA Mini’s further ultra-compact size, lightweight and radical design form a compelling solution for both live and installed sound, culminating in a scalable, high octane solution, yet within a reasonable budget.
Over the last ten years or so, line arrays have become a touring standard. However, achieving consistent results in all different venues would still remain elusive and too dependant on trial-and-error. Martin Audio MLA now goes way beyond line array and removes any of the guesswork – giving the sound engineer new tools to deliver greatly improved performance, coverage and repeatability.
Martin Audio MLA really does solve both consistency and set-up issues by a combination of unique optimisation software and cellular array design – enabling the sound engineer’s exact mix to be delivered throughout the audience from gig-to-gig and venue-to-venue with a degree of precision, consistency and repeatability not previously possible with previous line arrays.
