Unlike the more basic EASE Focus v1, the new Version 2 is a three-dimensional, acoustic simulation application for the configuration and modeling of line array systems and of adjustable loudspeakers such as digitally steered columns. The new software represents a dramatic step forward toward more realistic modeling of complex sound systems.
The Version 2 software features 3D modeling of direct sound—displayed in horizontal and vertical cutting planes with full balloon modeling, which is significantly more accurate than in the previous version. As a result, the entire room/space can be modeled in 3D. Version 2 also provides support for EASE GLL files and data exchange with EASE and other AFMG software packages. Additional capabilities include the ability to incorporate multiple line array systems into a single project, display time and frequency response plots, and its simulation mode provides a virtual equalizer for tuning a line array.
Hugh Sarvis, WorxAudio Technologies' CEO and Director of Engineering, served as a beta tester for EASE Focus v2. He commented on his company's decision to license the Version 2 software. “EASE Focus v2 utilizes the GLL format for broad compatibility,” Sarvis remarked. “With over 2,400 polar curves, there is a tremendous amount of line array fine tuning that can achieved with this new software, and this enables our customers to maximize the effectiveness of their loudspeaker systems more expediently and easier than before. Pat Brown of Synergetic Audio Concepts and ETC, Inc.—a recognized authority in the pro audio community—provided our polar curves and I'm convinced that the accuracy of the data the new Version 2 software produces will be of tremendous benefit to our customers.”
