Stirfry Software Launches SoundSoup-Pro - a Unique iPad App for Acoustic Modelling and Sound Design
Stirfry Software has released SoundSoup-Pro, the professional-level companion to their SoundSoup acoustic modelling App, which provides detailed acoustical data in addition to sound simulation. It’s clear there is a need for a mobile tool to help building designers demonstrate the acoustic impact of their designs and to allow acoustic product manufacturers to showcase the benefits of their products, and SoundSoup-Pro aims to fill that gap in the worldwide market.
SoundSoup-Pro helps to design the sound of a room, in the same way that 3D visualisation programs help to design the visual features. For architects, acoustic engineers, interior designers, property developers, office fit-out firms, educational institutions, builders, home improvement enthusiasts, and everyone interested in the sound of the environment, SoundSoup-Pro provides a whole new set of tools to avoid costly mistakes and create better-sounding spaces.
How to convince a prospective client that a proposal will solve their acoustic problem? Talking about decibels or reverberation times doesn’t help – they want to hear the difference immediately. This is where SoundSoup-Pro will become an indispensable intermediary tool, plus help to make that sale faster!
SoundSoup-Pro models both reverberation within the room and transmission from outside, using verified frequency-dependent data on absorption and transmission loss for a wide range of materials. Under the hood, SoundSoup-Pro relies on some sophisticated digital signal processing and expert knowledge of acoustics to accurately model the sound, but the simple user interface makes it easy for anyone to use. SoundSoup-Pro includes a large selection of sounds, construction materials and surface finishes, including specialist acoustic products from Industry Partners.
For the professional user, SoundSoup-Pro provides detailed and accurate data on reverberation times, sound pressure levels and transmission loss, as well as offering configurable sound sources, WAV format sound recordings, data export, and lots more. All data can be exported as PDF or CSV files to any suitable app, including Dropbox, for inclusion in reports, proposals and spreadsheets.
Some feedback from an acoustic engineer: “I am amazed at how we can do a complex design in minutes...we can present a non-standard design with all the normal calcs and then show the design in practice.”
SoundSoup-Pro for iPad is available in Apple's App Store at just US$25.99, so it's not going to strain the budget.
Companies that manufacture acoustic materials can become an Industry Partner with Stirfry Software to showcase and demonstrate their products within SoundSoup-Pro. Within the app their products are included in the list of selectable materials, with a link to the Company’s website.
SoundSoup for iPad is produced by Stirfry Software, an Australian venture which is a collaboration between a highly experienced professional acoustic engineer, Dr Rob Bullen, and Wendy Tufts, an international IT consultant.
