Bose Corporation has introduced Modeler 6.6 and Modeler Plus 6.6 sound system design software, upgrading the performance of its proprietary Modeler software tool that can predict how a loudspeaker system will behave in a specific room or facility. This new software reportedly offers improved interoperability with common CAD platforms, while providing "faster, more accurate modeling of complex room geometries for a more streamlined or efficient sound system design process."
Featured in the Modeler 6.6 and Plus 6.6 upgrade is a new Modeler software plug-in for Google SketchUp. This plug-in allows designers to take a completed room model from SketchUp and transfer it to a Modeler model file via an export function. Once imported into Modeler software, the room model can be used to create a sound system design using the full complement of Modeler features and functions, such as predicting sound coverage, level, intelligibility, and reflection properties.
