Engineered Sound Processor
sound processor is a flexible, expandable, and
igh-quality audio signal processor for engineered
sound applications such as churches, theaters,
auditoriums, and sports venues. The base model
(ESP-88) includes eight inputs (microphone or
line-level selectable) and eight line level outputs.
Four available audio slots allow the addition of
to 16 more analog audio channels – inputs,
outputs or a combination – or up to 32 digital
audio channels (AES3) as inputs, outputs or a
combination. For even larger or distribuited system
multiple ESP-88s can be used per system.
The ControlSpace ESP-88 has a complete set of
audio processing algorithms, a flexible signal path
and an open card architecture that make it an
excellent solution for most engineered sound
A single 200MHz TMS320C6713 DSP chip is used
to provide processing power and audio channels
needed for most applications. For larger applica-
tions, optional audio expansion cards can be added
and an optional DSP expansion card can increase
processor power and delay memory by 300%.
The optional Enhanced Dynamic Range input and
output cards provide 111dB dynamic range for
projects where this level of system performance
is a requirement.
For controlling these systems, the ESP-88 supports
multiple choices of user controllers including simple
potentiomenters wired to the ESP-88’s control port,
the ControlSpace CC-16 zone controller and the
ControlSpace CC-64 control center.
The Bose ControlSpac
(included in the box) is used to configure the
88 as well as the user controllers. As soon as
