Lake Convolver not convolving?

When I convolve my FIR filter file with a wav file as the source and play it thru my speakers, the EARS convolver gives me what I would expect, and the Lake sounds like just the source (input) wav file.

Switch on [x] Convolve in the FIR Filter Frame. If off, Lake works as player. The EARS convolver sets this switch itself. Does the peak level indicator go to color? If not, you are in play mode

Lake Convolver in the Background

The audio playback using the Lake Convolver is muted whenever the focus changes to another window. It returns when the focus is returned to the convolver DB.

Yes, the Lake convolver strictly needs an open and active window. You can relax the problem with 'Ears/Utilities/Auto Foreground' on. Then EARS pulls back the focus automatically after you have clicked somewhere else.

Level and Delay for Mixing Files

I have produced different WAV files by the Lake convolver for further processing with the Ears WAV Mixer. How can I get their proper SPL and delay values?

The Lake convolver is designed for real-time listening. For manipulation of convolved signals we recommend the use of the EARS convolver. It automatically produces WAV files with proper level and delay information.

Changing Wall Material for Multiple Faces

How can I quickly switch between materials for a group of Faces? Individually re-assigning each Face to another absorption spectrum is of course one way to go. But switching each Face to a second alternate material is very slow. Is there a better way?

Yes, there is. The easiest way is to define an Object containing all these Faces. After that you can go to the Object's properties sheet and set the Wall Material of all Faces with a single click.
Of course you can also use the method described below.

Delete Items after combining Projects

I built two models in EASE 4.0 and used the command: "Combine Project". It combined the projects, but I can no longer delete items in the project because it says that they are appended to the old file. What does that mean and how can I solve it?

EASE 4.0: This message usually occurs if items to be deleted are still referenced to from within an object. It can be one of the following:

Coverage Cones not showing

My problem is in painting the conic 3-6-9 dB loudspeaker coverage patterns on the seating area. I get the magenta line indicating the aiming angle, but I am not able to turn on the patterns even though the program says the beam patterns are on.

If the Options are shoing 3,6,9 dB Cones ON and the magenta line is visible, check also the currently used frequency under Options, maybe the current band is not valid. Otherwise you should also check if there are really cones with values different from 0° and 180° using the Speakerbase.
