FIRmaker News

After not even three-quarters of a year, AFMG’s groundbreaking FIRmaker optimization technology has been licensed by over a dozen loudspeaker manufacturers. Managing director Stefan Feistel sees two reasons for this tremendous success.

“Our FIRmaker Technology is able to basically upgrade any well-engineered line array system to the high-end level which so far has been dominated by the most expensive loudspeakers of only two or three manufacturers. Aside from the technical aspect, our extremely attractive introductory offer has led many innovative manufacturers to purchase quickly. They are now beginning to integrate FIRmaker with their current and future products.”

As a plug-in technology, FIRmaker can be used not only within EASE Focus 2, the popular sound system simulation tool by AFMG supported by over 50 major loudspeaker brands. Through a purpose-designed interface, FIRmaker can also be integrated into third-party platforms to leverage the new optimization powers.

AFMG has spent significant effort last year to verify the proper performance of many leading DSP platforms with FIRmaker generated filters. Next to the growing list of systems tested by AFMG, FIRmaker filters can be used in any DSP with adequate FIR processing capacity that allow import of .csv, .xml or .wav filter files.

MS Windows 8.1 Compatibility Issues

Due to changes implemented by Microsoft in their latest Windows 8.1 Upgrade, some AFMG programs needed to be revised. Please follow this link for information on how to safely upgrade to Windows 8.1!

AFMG has quickly provided updates for those programs which needed modifications to resolve compatibility issues with MS Windows 8.1. If you are a user of AFMG Reflex, AFMG SoundFlow or EASE Evac, you can download the latest version compatible to Windows 8.1 from your account in our Download Portal.

All AFMG programs are now compatible with Windows 8.1.
