Powersoft Unveils MeMo Ultra Low Frequency Haptic Bundle For Gaming and Home Cinema Applications

August 5 2020, 12:40
Expanding its efforts in moving magnet linear motors for subharmonic sound reproduction, explored originally in the powerful M-Force transducer and M-Drive amp module (M-System), followed by the surprising Mover, a compact, low-frequency direct-drive/inertial-drive transducer, Powersoft now announces a new solution directly targeted at home applications. The MeMo bundle combines the Mover ultra-low frequency transducer with a fully optimized amplifier, specifically designed to enhance home cinema and gaming experiences. 

A strategic move (pun intended) for the Italian company, MeMo is an innovative use of the company's existing technologies, providing a new solution for a new market segment. Basically a DIY bass shaker, MeMo combines a moving magnet tactile transducer, with a high performance, ultra-low frequency amplifier, packed with a mounting kit and all the wiring included, specifically designed for the home cinema and gaming markets. As Powersoft says, MeMo is "set to transform the entertainment experience by adding a new layer of sound; a layer that can be felt."

The MeMo bundle, which is manufactured in Italy, includes one Mover tactile transducer and a matched amplifier platform that, between them, are able to overcome the physical limitations of traditional systems to deliver sounds that extend well below sub-harmonic frequencies, enhancing the experience of listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game.
With minimal setup required and multiple mounting options, MeMo can be secured to any gaming chair right out of the box or added to a home theater seat to generate a fully immersive experience. The chair or seat, immediately and effortlessly becomes part of the action, all through the power of haptic perception. And MeMo contains three presets that are conveniently accessible from the backside of the amplifier, which will allow users to choose their favorite audio set up. In fact, Powersoft believes the solution is simple and effective enough to be sold trough Amazon, leaving installation entirely to the end user.
For gamers, the professional Class D amplifier can be set up to reduce resonating frequencies between 20 and 40 Hz, enabling them to gain an advantage with more realistic and immediate feedback. Sim racers, in particular, can feel every inch of the road under their virtual seat thanks to the mighty power of the patented moving magnet transducer.

And if a user is more concerned with adding extra depth to their home cinema system, MeMo can be optimized to bump the frequency around 50 Hz and enhance the subharmonic content around 25 Hz, allowing to keep the sub's volume down, while still delivering the full frequency spectrum. 

Finally, through the combination of the system's accurate infra-bass reproduction and high mechanical power, MeMo can be optimized for music and multimedia content by using a flat preset with a slight bump between 60 and 80 Hz, which will allow users to feel the kicks that they have recently been missing at live concerts. 

Capable of reproducing the frequencies that become lost in translation when gaming with headphones, or watching a movie on a home theatre system, MeMo invites users to not only see and hear a story, but to truly experience it, without cranking up the volume and disturbing the neighbors.
