NAMM 2009: Auralex debuts in-store room analysis kitJanuary 14, 2009
Acoustic analysis program to be made available in a retail package
Auralex Acoustics is to offer its room analysis service in a retail package and will be demonstrating the kit at NAMM ‘09. The in-store kit is a complete program providing all the tools necessary to acoustically analyse any room.
Auralex Acoustics’ Lead Acoustical Engineer Gavin Haverstick will host several Room Analysis Plus overview demonstrations at the company’s booth (hall A, booth 6794) throughout the show to showcase the product and explain how the analysis service works.
Haverstick will present details about the service, including the features and benefits of Auralex’s off-site room analysis. This will comprise info on the service itself as well as the type of information the analysis can provide. Through this demo, Haverstick intends to convey how room analysis testing in conjunction with traditional modelling is the most accurate way to analyse a room.
Room Analysis Plus is an off-site analysis service where consumers download an audio file featuring a swept sine signal from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. Users can then record the sweep with an omni-directional measurement microphone in the location of the room in question.
All files can be sent via e-mail, along with the personalised room analysis form, directly to Auralex for examination by its acoustical engineering staff. Frequency response, impulse response, waterfall plots and reverberation time (RT) values can all be generated from this service. A written report will be presented back to the user within three to five business days outlining the acoustical issues and how to solve them.
“By offering a demo of Room Analysis Plus at Winter NAMM, we are able to really showcase how this service works,” says Haverstick. “Through Room Analysis Plus we can pinpoint the acoustical anomalies of any room to more accurately analyse the space and provide the best treatment solutions.”
The in-store room analysis kit includes an omni-directional measurement microphone, a USB drive featuring swept sine signals and a complete instructional guide. The kit is available through the company’s established network of dealers.
