Acoustic Design Ahnert Announces Cooperation with Olson Sound Design


EASE for Windows Support has been enhanced


BERLIN, Germany — 27 July 2001 Acoustic Design Ahnert (ADA) today announced an agreement with Bruce C. Olson of Olson Sound Design, to provide assistance with customer support for the EASE/EARS design software in cooperation with Renkus-Heinz. In addition, he will also manage the beta testing for new versions of EASE and EARS. EASE (Enhanced Acoustic Simulator for Engineers) is a sound system design and acoustic analysis program. EARS (Electronically Auralized Room Simulation), a part of EASE, is a binaural auralisation program module.

The EASE/EARS design software is considered the de facto standard for simulation of electro-acoustical properties. The addition of the well-known CAESAR architectural room acoustics algorithms to EASE in the new Analysis Utility for Room Acoustics (AURA) module will now allow calculation of standard room acoustical parameters according to ISO3382, as well as including the diffusion characteristics of surface materials.

Ron Sauro of Northwest Audio & Acoustics, University Place, WA will continue to provide special support in project design work that goes beyond the scope of the support provided by Renkus-Heinz or Bruce C. Olson.
