The first of its kind in Europe the technology in the Acoustic room allows the player to change the ambient acoustic in the room at the touch of a button. How? Well, the hi-tech microphones and speakers work together to immediately feedback your sound giving the user a feeling of live performance in the selected space. Why? The uses are vast... players can record pieces or different equipment and take away a recording on cd or memory stick.
