Default Hornresp Version 17.20

Hi Everyone,

Hornresp Version 17.20 has just been released. Data can now be exported to AkAbak script files - see Note 13 on page 16 of the Help file for details.

Contrary to my earlier advice, series / parallel combinations having up to 49 drivers can be handled. The upper limit is necessary because AkAbak networks are restricted to 56 nodes.

Input parameter values have been defined as constants, as requested by MaVo.

Kind regards,

David

Default Hornresp Version 17.30

Hi Everyone,

Hornresp Version 17.30 has just been released.

When schematic diagram data is exported, the length increment for each horn segment can now be specified by the user. This comes in handy when a constructing a mid-range or high-frequency horn using a number of sheets of material of a given (constant) thickness, glued together.

Kind regards,

David

Hi David,
Another valuable addition, thank you.
You must have noticed, that Tom Danley's implementations of his tapped horns tend to have small compression chambers and throat openings coupling the driver to the horn (as in the patent), is there any way to model this in Hornresp, or can this be easily added?
Regards,

Hi Oliver,

I have already released a minor update to Version 17.30 - Product Number 1730-080304 refers :-). While carrying out further random testing I came across a subtle bug in the menu control system. It was not related to the new schematic diagram export feature, though.

Unfortunately the answer to both of your questions is "no". I guess it would be possible to export the Hornresp tapped horn script file to AkAbak, and add in the extra bits there :-).

Kind regards,

David

Thanks David. I'll try to spend more time in AkAbak, it is obviously the next step to refine a Hornresp model.

Hello David,

I love hornresp. Thanks for each and every feature!

I have a few requests/suggestions:
- off-set driver placement along the hornlength (of a normal horn, not tapped)
- a helmholtz resonator option

Hornresp has evolved into a fascinating and very useful tool as it is, so continue to develope it in whatever direction suits you. If it includes my suggestions, cool...

PS: I tried AkAbak, didn't make me happy. I'm more of a wizards and applets and intuitive approach person...

Hi Ivo,

It's great to hear that you like using Hornresp - one of my key objectives was to (hopefully) make playing with the program an enjoyable learning experience.

Many thanks for your suggestions - unfortunately to fully integrate them into the software in a consistent manner would probably require significant changes to the input parameters window - unless you have already thought of an easy way to enter, store and display the necessary additional information :-).

I will keep your ideas in mind for the future, but it is looking a bit difficult at the moment.

Kind regards,

David
