Meet Chameleon, the new audio processing and loudness control products from Angry Audio. Until now, program audio processing has been a very specialized product primarily used by broadcasters. These are typically expensive and complex products that require quite a lot of expert setup and tuning to sound their best. And when the format changes, the experts need to do it all over again.
Audio Chameleon takes an entirely new and innovative approach. We have created a unique architecture controlled by a form of artificial intelligence. By constantly analyzing the incoming audio, Chameleon adjusts its parameters to best fit the content. You get all the loudness and consistency and punch and clarity of the most advanced program audio processing instantly, on any format.
Best of all, with the architecture under A.I. control, there’s nothing for you to do really. Take Chameleon out of the box, plug it in, flip a few switches, and it gets to work. It’s a game changer.
C3 is optimized for studio listening. Simulating the sound of an OTA (over the air) processor, your talent can listen to their voices the way it sounds to the listeners. Big, bold, beautiful and smooth. This is more than just an enjoyable experience. When talent can hear the processing working, they are able to make tiny adjustments to voice and mic technique to really get that professional sound that keeps your listeners tuning in.
C4 is built for streaming audio. Put an end to the problem of blasting commercials and mumbling voices. Your programming will always sound consistent even with wildly disparate source material. C4 adapts and adjusts to the incoming content so that any format, any material sounds amazing. And C4 is fully compliant with the latest loudness standards from Apple, Amazon, Youtube and others.
STUDIO AUDIO PROCESSOR
C-LEVEL is designed to normalize all your contribution audio. Think of it as a gentle multi-band AGC. It makes everything sound consistent and polished. Use it as a pre-processor so your OTA processor can work in its sweet spot. Use it at satellite and cable originations before sending the audio downstream for rebroadcast. Even use it to tame TV audio. C-LEVEL maintains consistent -24LUFS at all times ensuring you always hit your program distribution targets.
The processing algorithms in Chameleon are created by Cornelius “Corny” Gould, world renowned for his work in broadcast processing. For decades, Corny has been dreaming about ways to automate the processor to be more intelligent. Chameleon is the realization of his dream.
Though the automation aspect is revolutionary, it would only be a technical curiosity if it couldn’t produce great sound. Not to worry. Everyone who knows Corny knows this will never be an issue. Chameleon sounds absolutely amazing, even when compared to products costing 10x more!

Radio engineers know how hard it is to get the processing to sound right. Tweak some settings, get in the car, listen a bit, repeat. It can take hours, if not days to tune a processor to sound right. And you really need to be an expert to get the most out of these complex devices. Chameleon’s expert system automates that process by listening to the incoming audio and constantly adjusting its parameters to optimize for the content. Now your engineer might actually enjoy a day off now and then.
