What is the popular DIY audio site in Finland?

You used to have links on your site to VituixCAD discussions on various forums, but I no longer see those links (and your speakers are gone...).

Thank you,

David.

Please do not fade out! Your software is a very nice tool and your pace of improving/ adding in requests is simply amazing!

I for one would gladly pay a diy compliant price for the software, and I feel that others would to.

I fully understand that you are sick of answering the same rtfm questions again and again and trying to educate people who are not willing to put effort in reading and developing their knowledge. For me this is the main reason that I dont fancy the idea of releasing some of my own developed tools while I would actually like to share my knowledge; I just dont have the energy and time for the endless useless discussions.

Maybe an idea would be to close this forum for posting for everyone but yourself and you can post update info and specific answers on email questions once in a while at update releases?

Many thanks for all your effort so far, it really is highly appreciated by some of us!!

There is also a forum dedicated to "Audio Science Review" that might be less about stickies with outdated bad info and more inclined to "new" ideas and ways.

The owner of the site (I think it is him) has an actual Kipple machine that he uses to measure and post real Spin-O-Ramma data of both commercial and DIY speakers.

You should check it out.

David.

I'd like to point out that I agree that a properly done crossover can lead to a superior result. I began encouraging the 'full crossover' agenda even before the sticky you mention was written 10 years ago.

It was written to address the questions a large number of members were asking, to serve as an introduction. diyAudio members tend to run the gamut from less to more experienced, some looking to learn more, which takes time, and some happy where they are.

If you're finding it untenable here, I think HTGuide would be a suitable home, it has some of the most advanced DIY builders posting out there, and though the volume of posts is quite low, the S/N ratio is the highest of any DIY forum I've found. As you've seen, your approach is very much appreciated there and generally considered a gold standard, and you already seem to get along with Jon/ET quite well.

There is also a thread about VCAD Has anyone here used this - Vituix software?. Main topic in the end was speculation which university I've studied. Correct answer is that I've never even visited in any university. Just seen few university buildings outside so I'm probably not qualified for scientific discussion

That's correct. Jon is also the biggest private/DIY donor.

FWIW I've found this thread very helpful and I keep an eye on it to hear about how others are using the software, maybe learn some new tricks

I think it's important to have some separation between software support and trying to educate the world on acoustic design principals. It may be good to focus here on software specific features, issues, workflow, and take acoustic design principals to another thread.

Kimmo,

It seems that the solution is indeed for you to cut back so you don’t burn out (burn out more?). I hope you can just sit back, and not feel you have to respond to all questions and comments. Then it’s up to the other members to answer the questions on the various functions of the software.

Also we could rename the thread something like
VituixCAD New Features Suggestions, so theory questions would be off topic and deleted.

Or have that AND another thread called:The VituixCAD member supported help thread.

Something like that.... We’re open to ideas.
