AFMG Newsletter - Issue 42, October 2019


Dear customers, colleagues, and friends,
 
Welcome to a new edition of the AFMG® Newsletter. These quarterly issues inform you about software updates, trainings, and interesting downloads related to our products.

Get the New AURA Module - Boost your EASE® Calculation Performance

The AURA module, available in combination with EASE Standard, enables you to perform advanced acoustical investigations. This is made possible by AURA´s hybrid calculation engine which supports multi-threading and thus considerably reduces calculation times for full impulse responses. 

 

AFMG gladly announces the upgrade of the AURA module to version 4. AURA is now capable of using the entire RAM of 64-bit Windows operating systems. This memory improvement lifts the RAM limit for AURA mappings and for AURA results used for auralization. It also makes AURA 4 significantly faster. Calculation times are shortened by a factor of 2-3 for typical projects.

With AURA 4 it is easier for you to:

  • Compute mappings and auralization results with higher resolutions.
  • Calculate projects that contain a large number of loudspeakers or complex speaker systems such as line arrays and steerable columns.
  • Create auralizations for medium-sized to large projects. Binaural and B-format results computed with AURA response are not limited in size anymore.
  • Achieve a more realistic simulation of reflections. The standard curve for the scattering coefficient now takes into account the differences between high and low frequencies.
  • Select groups of loudspeakers for AURA mapping recombinations.
Give your projects a head start &
get a 10% Promo discount* for AURA 4!


Upgrade to AURA 4 at 500 EUR Promotion Price
New purchases of AURA 4 at 1.000 EUR Promotion Price
 

If you are eligible for a free EASE 5 license, or if you purchase an upgrade to EASE 5 after its release, the AURA 4 module you purchase now can be used with EASE 5.

*Available until end of 2019 (Regular prices will be 1.150 EUR net for AURA 4 and 550 EUR net for the AURA 4- Upgrade)

EASE® - Make the Right Choice for Your Projects

Ana Jaramillo and Bruce Olson – two of our representatives in the North America region – took an active role at the most recent ASA conference in Louisville and also at the ICA satellite event ISRA in Amsterdam this September. The topic of their presentations was comparing reverberation time equations and ray tracing simulations.

Design engineers and acoustic consultants working with our simulation software EASE® regularly have to consider this question when evaluating the most suitable calculation method for a specific project simulation.

Besides the reliability of the material database and the quality of the loudspeaker measurement data, this can be seen as one of the key aspects that has a great impact on the validity of simulation results.

Before starting a calculation it is highly recommended that users consider what is the optimal method for a certain project and get answers to questions like
  • "How precise can the calculation be or even needs to be?"
  • "Which method offers the best approximation of reality?"
  • "How much time do I want and how much time do I have to invest?"
  • "Do I have all data available needed for an in-depth investigation?".
AFMG´s simulation software EASE provides solutions for different kinds of calculation levels. This FAQ gives you an overview of the different versions and the possible calculation methods they provide: "Which quality levels of calculation does EASE offer?"

If you need further assistance in finding the correct EASE version for your projects, feel free to contact our sales team at sales@afmg.eu. We will be glad to advise you.
