AFMG Reflex Released: Calculate Sound Scattering and Diffusion of Surfaces

AFMG Reflex AFMG just released AFMG Reflex, the first commercial software able to model the reflection, diffusion, and scattering of a sound wave by a defined geometrical structure. Besides professionals working with acoustical simulations every day, the software also benefits owners of high-end home studios or similar audio setups.

Within AFMG Reflex the shape of a reflective surface is entered as a two-dimensional cross-section. The reflective properties are displayed as a polar response graph for any angle of incidence and frequency of a sound wave. The scattering and diffusion coefficients are shown as frequency response graphs. Result data can be compared for different angles, frequencies and models and saved directly as a report document. This makes it easy to optimize both diffusers as well as room arrangement.

The software can be used to evaluate diffuser quality and to tune audio installations and room design. Users of the EASE room-acoustic module AURA now find AFMG Reflex as an indispensable tool for calculating the necessary scattering coefficients.
