Sound designers and acousticians can now simulate L-ACOUSTICS' line source arrays via specific GLL or DLL files for the electro-acoustic software EASE and CATT-Acoustics, respectively. L-ACOUSTICS coaxial speakers can also be simulated using the dedicated GLL file in EASE and the Common Loudspeaker Format (CLF) file for CATT-Acoustics, ODEON and LARA.
Each third party software can be used in parallel with SOUNDVISION to simulate additional parameters, such as total sound pressure level (taking into account the reverberation field), intelligibility and clarity factor thanks to the fact that they include room acoustics properties.
"The new modules allow for much quicker insertion and setup of L-ACOUSTICS WST and coaxial systems into a variety of individual sound design software," says L-ACOUSTICS Application Engineer Germain Simon. "The GLL and DLL libraries provide true line source radiation patterns, which enable them to much more accurately predict the behavior of line source arrays in a venue."
This development, which is in direct response from consultants, supports acousticians by allowing them to input clients' requirements, such as intelligibility and reverberation, directly into their L-ACOUSTICS speaker designs.

L-ACOUSTICS launched the SOUNDVISION acoustic modeling software in 2004, drawing on its long-term experience of modeling acoustic sound sources. Developed for sound designers, it is dedicated to the acoustic and mechanical simulation of L-ACOUSTICS' WST line source systems and coaxial point source technologies. SOUNDVISION is the first 3D sound design program capable of operating in real time. With several thousand copies in circulation around the world, all L-ACOUSTICS users deploy SOUNDVISION for their permanent installation or touring projects.
L-ACOUSTICS is a leading innovator and manufacturer of high-performance loudspeakers, amplifiers and signal processing devices for touring and installed sound markets. Known around the globe for pioneering and championing the modern line array loudspeaker concept with V-DOSC, the company has received numerous accolades for its K1, KUDO, KARA, KIVA, ARCS, XT coaxial loudspeaker systems and SB line of subwoofer enclosures, all powered and processed with the LA4 and LA8 amplified controllers in fulfillment of a "total system approach." Product distribution and customer service for the USA is handled by L-ACOUSTICS' subsidiary in Oxnard, California.
