What is EASE Address?

»  EASE Address is a software that allows the modeling of acoustic sources, in particular distributed loudspeaker systems, in two dimensions. It only considers the direct field, created by the addition of the sound contributions of the individual loudspeakers.

»  The design of EASE Address is targeted at the end user, but also at the R&D engineer. Therefore great efforts are made to create an intuitive and consistent interface, which agrees with modern user interface design principles.

»  The purpose of EASE Address is to provide both, the end user, who needs to quickly develop a simple design for a ceiling loudspeaker system, as well as the developer, with a tool that allows the easy and quick prediction of the system performance in a given hall.

»  The applicability of EASE Address is quite extended compared to conventional 2D ceiling loudspeaker simulation software. Outstanding is that it is not fixed to a single product. A GLL configuration file allows the definition of the loudspeaker properties in an ASCII text format. Thus, additional loudspeakers can be introduced at any time by additional configuration files, already existing loudspeakers can be updated, without changes to a single line of code in the software. This makes EASE Address a generic software.

»  The scientific base of EASE Address stems from EASE, the professional electro- and room acoustic simulation software developed by Ahnert Feistel Media Group. EASE Address is also created by AFMG.

EASE Address Software

»   EASE Address is a software that allows the modeling of distributed loudspeaker systems in two dimensions. Comparable to a Reader-software it is based on the GLL system definition files (.GLL) required for its use. These files can be created by means of the EASE SpeakerLab Software and contain the data that defines a ceiling or wall-mounted loudspeaker with regard to its geometrical and acoustical properties.

»  EASE Address is publicly available and it is free. It cannot be licensed directly, rather loading a selected system definition (GLL) file constitutes the relation to a manufacturer. The maintenance and the extension of the EASE Address Software is carried out by AFMG.

EASE SpeakerLab Software

»  By means of the EASE SpeakerLab Software and a special authorization file, a documented text format (.XGLL), that describes the geometrical and acoustical properties of a loudspeaker, can be translated into a binary, compiled format (.GLL). These binary definition files represent the basis for the EASE Address Software.

»   More information about the measurement of loudspeaker data and the creation of GLL files with EASE SpeakerLab software can be found under this FAQ.

»  The EASE SpeakerLab Software and the authorization file will be provided by AFMG after the purchase of a manufacturer-specific licence. The maintenance and extension of the EASE SpeakerLab Software is carried out by AFMG.

What does EASE Address have in common with EASE?

»  EASE Address is powered by the same acoustic engine as EASE. It can actually be considered as a strongly reduced version of EASE, but it only calculates the direct sound field for 2 dimensions.

»  Otherwise both software packages are very similar with regard to most acoustic calculation properties. For example, the loudspeaker data resolution is based on the GLL data format and can be defined adequate to the simulation needs. Like EASE, EASE Address uses the ISO standard for air absorption according to ISO 9613-1, the propagation loss over distance, the angle dependency of the acoustic data, summing of the acoustic sources and much more.

»  Data exchange between the two software programs, EASE Address and EASE, is intended and will be possible.

Who are the creators of EASE Address?

»  EASE Address is developed and distributed by AFMG Technologies GmbH. AFMG, Ahnert Feistel Media Group, is closely related to ADA Acoustic Design Ahnert and SDA Software Design Ahnert GmbH. AFMG creates and distributes software for the pro-audio market and has worked on projects for many in the manufacturer community. For more details please see the imprint.
