Lisbon, Portugal (December 5, 2011)—Acoustic solutions manufacturer Vicoustic has released ViTune, the company's first acoustic measurement software.
ViTune has been designed for both audio professionals and hi-fi enthusiasts, allowing them to tune rooms without requiring specialist training.
Based on a "traffic light" indication system, room measurement is carried out in four steps via the software's interface. Configure the sound card, test the signal level, enter the room dimensions and click Go! For customers with more experience in acoustic analysis, the software also includes an Advanced section showing results for full frequency response, smoothed frequency, impulse response, reverb time and energy time curve.
As well as measuring the room, ViTune also reportedly indicates how much treatment should be used to improve the overall acoustics. Two choices of product are offered for fixing reverberation time problems and controlling first reflections. ViTune also shows the exact frequency to which Vari Bass, Vicoustic's portable standalone bass trap, should be tuned.
ViTune is currently available free of charge on the Windows platform. A Mac version is due for release during Q2 2012.
