Default Visual Ears Software

Does anyone know the fate of the old "Visual Ears Software"?

Seems to have disappeared. Phone number and website are gone, and Bill Fiztpatrick no longer posts here.

I was just curious because it looked like a good software for speaker in room placement, and the reviews were good.

Anyone have a clue were it went, or if there is a more recent software that does as well or better?

Thanks!

Look at the RRC at the FRD Consortium.

Probably more accurate than the sitting duck software calculator.

Somewhere I have an old Lotus 1-2-3 Spreadsheet from Roy Allison that I laboriously converted to Excel and never checked for accuracy. Are you interested in that?

Thanks Ron.

I have used the RRC and it's pretty handy.
Digging around the web kept bringing up CARA.
http://www.cara.de/index.php

Looks like a hell of a lot of software for $80US. Too bad there isn't a trial version. I might just have to order it. Tons of cool features; customizable rooms, speakers, etc. It will even alter a wave file to mimic the room sound.

Yes, I'll give the spreadsheet a try- thanks. Just pop me an email.

SoundEasy does room response calculations, among all of the other things it does, like measurement , bass and crossover design, for ~$300.

Attached is the original and my modification (modernization) of the spreadsheet. I haven't checked this sheet for accuracy, only played around with it for a couple hours until I lost interest. Use at your own risk.

Just as an update - I got the CARA software. It is QUITE impressive. A tool any DIY Audio nut should have.

Will post more about it soon. Maybe in loudspeakers.
