Software Design Ahnert GmbH (SDA) in Berlin, Germany has released Version 1.4 of EASE Focus, a free, publicly licensed program for configuring line arrays and modeling their performance. Version 1.4 includes English, German and Spanish translations of the software and help files, and includes updates to AutoSplay, mapping displays and other important functions. It also includes extended Print Report functionality and improved online updates, as well as enhanced modeling of ground-stacked configurations and subwoofers.
EASE Focus is designed to provide accurate predictions of line array performance using the same acoustic engine as EASE software for simulating and designing acoustical environments and sound systems. Line array cabinets can be defined as complex models that include multiple sources. EASE Focus models line arrays in two dimensions using the GLL (Generic Loudspeaker Library) data format developed by SDA to consider the direct field created by the complex addition of individual loudspeakers or array elements.
The EASE Focus Installer is available as a ZIP archive download from www.easefocus.com.
