PK Sound - Robotic Multi-axis Line Array? Whoa…

This should be interesting! :)

There was a system similar to this released a few years back but I have not seen one in the wild.
It's a cleaver idea that makes an inherently expensive speaker system even more costly!
Having read some of the advertising copy, you would think this is the only system to solve some of the common problems with line arrays(rolls eyes)
However, it seems to me that adjusting the physical array to meet coverage requirements is better than using time (delay) between the array components as some system do.

One of the "Broadway" audio shops did a similar mod to a Meyer line array over a decade ago.

On a theatrical musical, I can see this to a certain extent:  the PA towers go in long before system tuning, and if there is an error with the prediction it will be almost impossible to re-set the PA because so much scenic and LX stuff is now in the way.  For an EDM event that PK tends to specialize in?  Not so much, me thinks, but the ability to do it in real time may be appealing to some production companies.

Venues who redo their audience areas between shows would probably benefit.
Standing/seated/flat floor/raked seating etc...

Beware of the Dynamics software, it installs a program called "Mono" that ... basically gives your computer mono ... uses up unused cores and kills your battery life.

Uninstall it, and the program will still work, it uses a different version, that doesn't idle your available resources.
