Chapter 1: An Overview of the Modeler Software Interface 17
Before we start designing and predicting the performance of the
sound system for the room, the user should set a number of
parameters related to the room and environment that impact
calculations in Modeler. These parameters are collected in the
Setting Acoustic Preferences
Select the Acoustics tab in the detail window:
Figure 1.21 - Acoustics tab
Modeler software adjusts the EQ to make the
average room-response (Direct or Direct +
Reverberant) meet a target response or “house
curve”. The house curve is defined in the
Acoustics tab of the detail window.
Place the sound system at maximum gain. The
gain is increased on all loudspeakers until the first
loudspeaker reaches its power handling limit.
Open the Select Speakers dialog box to choose a
loudspeaker or loudspeakers by Cluster, Zone,
Tier and Index. The EQ curve is displayed for the
selected loudspeaker or loudspeakers.
Automatically select all loudspeakers that have a
Status of “On”.
Specify the increment by which the EQ curve
sliders can be moved, in dB.
