Anaheim, CA (January 13, 2021)—John Storyk, founding partner of architectural/acoustic design firm WSDG (Walters-Storyk Design Group), and Dr. Peter D’Antonio, creator of RPG Diffusor Systems, will present a new wave-based, small room design tool on Jan. 21 during the NAMM Show.
NIRO (Non-Cuboid Iterative Room Optimizer) is a SaaS (software as a service) developed over the past two years by REDI Acoustics. The wave-based, computer-modeling tool is reportedly capable of facilitating predictive, iterative analysis necessary to optimize small room design — for studios, home theaters, audiophile rooms, and the like.
D’Antonio and Storyk are part of the founding team of REDI Acoustics, a recently formed research company dedicated to high-performance audio and acoustic analysis.
NIRO’s developmental software platform consists of three modules, which automatically and iteratively optimize any size or shape critical listening room, both below and above the transition frequency from wave to geometrical acoustics. One or all of the modules may be engaged to address specific acoustic requirements for the high-performance listening environment.
The Geometry Module optimizes the room’s dimensions and the positions of all loudspeakers and listeners, by searching for the flattest modal response.
The Damper Module designs and optimally locates all low frequency corrective treatments now referred to as Acoustical Parametric Equalizers (APEQs.)
The Specular Reflection Module optimizes the room’s reflection free zone; identifies disturbing mid and high frequency response anomalies; and addresses specific degrees of acoustic envelopment.
The NIRO presentation is set to premiere at 3:25 EST on Thursday, Jan. 21 on NAMM’s Believe In Music virtual event platform (registration necessary). It will then be available on-demand for five weeks following that date.
