Faber Acoustical Premiers The Electroacoustics Toolbox
Faber Acoustical has announced the release of Electroacoustics Toolbox (FEaT), a new dynamic signal analysis and data acquisition software platform. FEaT is a modularized, multi-channel multi-analyzer, offering real-time data acquisition and analysis of electrical, acoustical, and electroacoustic signals and systems.
FEaT brings powerful new tools to the Macintosh platform for multi-channel, audio-band data acquisition and real-time analysis of electrical, acoustical, and electroacoustic signals and systems. It enables precise measurements of acoustic quantities, such as equivalent and time-weighted sound levels, as well as acoustic and electroacoustic systems, such as listening rooms and loudspeakers. The software is designed to work with any Mac-compatible audio hardware and supports multiple channels of 8, 16, 24, or 32-bit data with sample rates as high as the hardware will support.
â€¢ Multi-channel Dual FFT Analyzer for transfer function and impulse response measurements of electrical, acoustical, and electroacoustic systems (filter circuits, listening rooms, loudspeakers, etc)
â€¢ Multi-channel FFT Analyzer for real-time spectral analysis of input and output signals
â€¢ Multi-channel Meter Bridge for a quick look at input signal levels
â€¢ Multi-channel Oscilloscope for real-time viewing of input signal waveforms
â€¢ Sound Level Meter for measuring instantaneous and time-averaged sound pressure levels
â€¢ X/Y Plotter for creating Lissajous figures in real time
â€¢ Signal Generator for real-time synthesis of various waveforms and test signals
â€¢ Noise Dosimeter for convenient noise dose measurements
â€¢ Hardware-accelerated OpenGL graphics for fast real-time plotting
â€¢ Quartz-based graphics for high-resolution still images and prints
â€¢ Advanced control over input and output devices
â€¢ Device and individual channel calibration
â€¢ Support for units, including Volts, Amps, Pascals, and Engineering Units
â€¢ Saving complete configurations and data in project files
â€¢ Exporting data to ascii text files for easy import into other applications
â€¢ Work with multiple independent audio devices simultaneously
â€¢ No arbitrary limits on how many devices or channels are used, or on sample rates or signal formats–these are limited only by your hardware
â€¢ Modular architecture for rapid development of additional tools, with the potential to allow third parties to develop custom plug-ins
Electroacoustics Toolbox is available as a Universal Binary, compatible with PowerPC and Intel-based Macintosh computers running Mac OS X version 10.3.9 or later for $699. More information on the Faber Acoustical Electroacoustics Toolbox.
