Electroacoustics Toolbox 3.0 for Mac OS 10.6 is now available for download on the new Mac App Store and at FaberAcoustical.com.

Faber Acoustical has announced the release of Electroacoustics Toolbox 3.0. The latest release of Faber Acoustical’s flagship acoustical test and measurement toolset is now available for purchase in the Mac App Store and at FaberAcoustical.com. Version 3 of Faber Acoustical’s flagship product features an enhanced user interface, better control over audio device configurations, and more comprehensive user preferences.

New functionality in the Toolbox includes the option to perform arithmetic operations, such as addition, subtraction, and multiplication, on two arbitrary input channels of an audio input device. Users can also specify arbitrary FFT lengths and view live spectrogram data in 3D with a logarithmic frequency scale. Acoustical consultants, researchers, and educators can now measure percentile-exceeded sound levels in the Sound Level Meter or Octave Analyzer tools. The Octave Analyzer also supports extended low frequency bands down to less than 1 Hz.

Those who wish to try Electroacoustics Toolbox before they buy are welcome to download a free 30-day trial at FaberAcoustical.com.

SpeakerDraft gains Universal status

Faber Acoustical is pleased to announce that SpeakerDraft 1.2 is now available for download on the iTunes App Store. Version 1.2 brings a few important enhancements, as well as compatibility with the iPhone and iPod touch.

New in version 1.2:

  • SpeakerDraft now runs on all iPhone OS devices, including the iPhone and iPad
  • Driver properties now include nominal diameter (in inches), nominal impedance, and mounting depth.
  • Box dimensions are constrained by the size of the driver (you can’t make a box that’s too small for the selected driver).
  • Port dimensions are constrained by the size of the box.
  • Some cosmetic issues have been corrected in the iPad version.

SpeakerDraft 1.2 also brings with it a new, lower price.

Happy subwoofer drafting!

Speaker modeling comes to the iPad

We are please to announce SpeakerDraft, a new loudspeaker modeling app for iPad. SpeakerDraft makes it easy and fun to visually optimize the bass response of a simple loudspeaker design, such as a subwoofer.

SpeakerDraft takes advantage of the iPad’s large screen to plot the speaker’s bass response, which updates in real time as the user drags virtual slider controls corresponding to the speaker’s physical dimensions. Users can zero in on the right box and port dimensions for their next car or home theater subwoofer project, with minimal effort. Even selecting a specific loudspeaker driver for a given speaker box becomes a simple matter of tapping on different drivers listed in the app–the speaker’s bass response plot is updated immediately with each tap.

SpeakerDraft supports the design of sealed and ported loudspeaker boxes. In either case, the width, height, and depth of the box are fully adjustable. Port diameter and length can also be specified for ported box designs. Users can create an arbitrary number of speaker designs, or add drivers to their driver list. The app also includes a driver database.

SpeakerDraft costs $19.99 and is available now for download on the iTunes app store.

SignalScope 2 for iPhone offers upgrades via in-app purchase

Faber Acoustical, LLC announced today that SignalScope 2.0 for iPhone and iPod touch devices is available for immediate download on the iTunes App Store. With version 2, SignalScope users can now enjoy the full features of the Pro version without having to pay full price for SignalScope Pro. Faber Acoustical’s SignalScope 2.0 includes full and partial upgrades, via in-app purchase, that unlock additional tools and functionality, which previously were only available in the Pro version.

In addition to enabling users to upgrade to the full functionality of SignalScope Pro for iPhone all at once, SignalScope 2.0 offers incremental upgrades. Available upgrades include individual tools, such as the level meter (functionally equivalent to the sound level meter tool in the popular SoundMeter app), octave analyzer, and signal generator. Another upgrade can be purchased to enable data acquisition features, such as saving data to text or MAT files, which can then be downloaded to any Mac or PC via a standard web browser.

Available in-app purchase upgrades include:

  • a full upgrade to the functionality of SignalScope Pro for $59.99 (includes all other upgrades);
  • a Signal Generator tool for $7.99;
  • an Octave and 1/3-octave Analyzer tool (RTA) for $19.99;
  • a Level Meter tool for $14.99;
  • and a Data acquisition upgrade (text and MAT file data capture) with downloading to Mac or PC via a standard web browser for $19.99.

IMPORTANT NOTE: iPod touch devices require additional external hardware to get audio signals into SignalScope. For audio signals, the 1st gen iPod touch requires a dock connector input device (such as the MacAlly iVoice Pro) to be used with SignalScope. All other devices can perform measurements with the headset connector, but using a stereo dock connector input device is recommended for the highest quality measurements.

Minimum Requirements:
* iPhone or iPod touch, with iPhone OS 3.0 or later

Pricing and Availability:
SignalScope is now available for download on the iPhone App Store for $24.99 (USD). External hardware may be required for analog input capability. More information on SignalScope can be found at Faber Acoustical online. More information regarding suitable input devices for specific iPhone or iPod touch models can be found on the Faber Acoustical blog.

SignalScope Pro includes SoundMeter tool

SignalScope Pro 1.2 for iPhone is now available for download on the iTunes App Store

SignalScope Pro turns an iPhone or iPod touch device into a hand-held dynamic signal analysis tool, with support for 1/3-octave real-time spectral analysis. SignalScope Pro’s new Meter tool builds on what SoundMeter has to offer and extends it beyond measuring acoustic signal levels to support time-weighted and equivalent levels for any supported signal type (including voltage, current, acceleration, and velocity, in addition to acoustic pressure).

Within the new Meter tool, SignalScope Pro gains SoundMeter’s ability to post measured levels directly to a Twitter account or to send them via email. Levels can also be overlaid on an image from the photo library, or taken with the camera on an iPhone.

SignalScope 1.4 for iPhone is now available for download on the iTunes App Store

SignalScope 1.4 now allows frequency resolution to be specified directly for the FFT analyzer, rather than selecting the number of spectral lines. Help documents can now be accessed within the app without requiring an internet connection and several cosmetic issues and bugs have been corrected in the new version.

SoundMeter 1.6.1 is now available for download on the iTunes App Store

SoundMeter corrects an issue that prevented custom sensitivities for the iPhone’s built-in microphone from being properly applied or remembered.
