Which applications can be addressed with EASE 5?

EASE 5 is the tool of choice if you wish to model sound systems and room acoustics in 3D, possibly in just minutes or a few hours. Due to its intuitive user interface and fast workflows, it allows designing loudspeaker systems and investigating acoustical questions very efficiently. In this sense, EASE 5 provides a stable basis for many kinds of applications and projects. Please see the FAQ: In which cases do you recommend to still work with EASE 4 instead of EASE 5?

EASE 5 is recommended for project realization in the following fields of application:

  • Sound system validation and planning – straight-forward analysis of direct SPL
    • Evaluation of different products and brands from a large database
    • Simulation of direct sound coverage on audience areas
    • Investigation of undesired sound radiation onto surfaces that should be avoided
  • Evaluation of room acoustics – easy statistical acoustics
    • Analysis of interaction between modeled room acoustic parameters
    • Use of the large built-in material database
    • Tuning of the reverberation time by changing acoustic materials
    • Estimating or verifying the amount of acoustic absorption required
    • Calculation of design criteria and metrics such as delay, clarity and speech intelligibility
  • Advanced room acoustic investigations – accessible ray-tracing analysis
    • Detecting echo problems or focusing effects and optimizing reflectors by simulating sound radiation and reflection patterns
    • Detailed reflection analysis with Probe module, including arrival time, level, frequency response and direction at a selected receiver position
    • Quick calculation of RT, STI and ISO 3382 quantities with AURA mapping (full-length impulse response data)
    • Precise auralization with AURA Response and EARS
