Alternative tool with more flexible and visual UI for converting ARTA pir-files (and CLIO mls-files) to FRDs is available in VituixCAD, though that won't make ARTA freeware or improve support on other platforms than Windows.
What about REW too? It's free and it's available for multiple platforms.

I haven't used ARTA but I find Holmimpulse really easy to use. It has a nice interface, understandable interface, all of which seems to be a rarity in software.



I am sure ARTA is great. But choice, and competition, is a nice thing to have. I for, for one, think that Linux has made Windows better.

Unfortunately those two things are not enough. Valid tool for speaker designing should be simple and fast to use, and it must support off-axis measurement sequence or at least automatic file naming by plane and angle.

Could we keep this thread on topic please?
I would love to see HolmImpulse actively maintained again, and if there is a chance for this to happen let's not miss it!

I have used most programs and always come back to Holm. It's true that its capabilities are somewhat limited, but what it does, it does very well.

Here are the things I would like to see added to HOLM, in priority order:
- bug/crash corrections (wav import for example, as well as random crashes)
- more smoothing and gating options (variables gating with finer options, psychoacoustic frequency smoothing, etc.)
- be able to see more than 3 measurements at once, for things like off axis response analysis or spinoramas

I'm trying to install HolmImpulse on a Windows 10 laptop (64-bit), and I'm constantly being told by the installer that I also need to install Windows .Net framework v2.0. However, my laptop already has a more recent .Net framework (v4.7.x, IIRC). What does one do under this situation? Anyone else encountered any of this?

I used HolmImpulse on an older Windows 7 laptop and there it worked fine.

I had to install .net v2.0 because HOLM just doesn't recognize anything later. My Win10 laptop has all .Net versions from 2 to whatever the latest is.
