To improve flexibility, we have organized the upcoming online EASE training in a series of modules that can be configured in different ways to cover the topics needed by the attendee. See a description of each module below.
Introduction to EASE 5 (PR003) – Webinar
This webinar will demonstrate the new EASE 5 Software for existing EASE 4 users as well as those who are completely new to EASE software. Please use the following link:
Required for all participants.
Building rooms in EASE 5 for New Users (EG105) - $600
This two-session module is for new users, as well as experienced EASE 4 users. At the end of the class the participant will be able to import DWG files, draw directly in the light-weight EASE editor, add sources and receivers, change the acoustic characteristics of the room, and load and save EASE 4 projects.
Design and simulation of sound systems using EASE 5 - $800
a. Basic (SS103)
This two-session module explores the uses of EASE for simulation of sound systems. At the end of the class the participant will be able to add sound sources like those used in sound system measurements, will know how to use the different file formats and loudspeaker types, and design sound systems assisted by EASE, obtaining simulation results such as SPL and STI maps.
b. Advanced (SS203)
This two-session module continues with more advanced sound system simulation. At the end of the class the participant will be able to design a complex sound system using EASE, obtain mapping results with the AURA module, and create direct sound auralizations.
c. Advanced analysis of sound system responses in EASE 5 (SS303)
This single session module explores Precedence for the optimization of sound systems, and the analysis of reflectograms.
Prerequisite: PR003 and EG105*
Design and simulation for room acoustics using EASE 5 - $1000
a. Basic (RA103)
This three-session module explores the uses of EASE for room acoustic simulation and analysis. At the end of the class the participant will be able to add sound sources like those used in acoustical measurements, add absorptive materials to rooms, add scattering coefficients, and obtain results for basic room acoustics parameters in Mapping and Probe.
b. Advanced (RA203)
This two-session module continues with more advanced simulation for room acoustics. At the end of the class the participant will be able to run Ray Tracing for reflection pattern analysis, and obtain Mapping results for advanced room acoustics parameters, as well as impulse responses for analysis and auralization.
c. Advanced analysis of room responses using EASE Auralization (RA303)
This single session module explores Auralization in depth. At the end of the class the participant will be able to create auralizations using EASE and AURA, including binaural files, stereo and B-format files, as well as batch processing.
Prerequisite: PR003 and EG105**
B. Class Methodology
The EASE Online Training will be taught using the Zoom platform. It is recommended that participants have an additional monitor connected to their computer, so they can follow what the instructor is doing on the screen. You also will want to have a mouse with a scroll wheel to allow moving around the model easily. The classes are highly interactive and include some presentations and theory on general knowledge and software features.
Documents with exercises and instructions will be provided before the class so that participants can start becoming familiar with the software.
Larger classes will have 2 instructors so questions can be answered, and issues resolved as they arise and so that participants do not lose track of the exercises. A certificate of completion from AFMG will be provided at the end of the class.
A full feature evaluation software license will be provided so participants can explore the software fully, even if they own a simpler version, or don’t own the software yet.
