Introduction to Features of ODEON 13

This video introduces some of the main features of Odeon 13 combined.

ODEON 13 – UniCode support

ODEON 13 offers full Uni-code support which means that any character set and keyboard layout including Chinese, Japanese and Korean is supported without conflicting the operation of ODEON. ODEON 13 also features enhanced user interface.

ODEON 13 –┬áPlace Source/Receivers with your mouse

ODEON 13 allows positioning sources and receivers using the mouse in the 3D Edit source display.

ODEON 13 – Selecting Surfaces in 3D

ODEON 13 allows selecting surfaces in 3D for receiver grids, reflector coverage, multi surface sources and materials list (Industrial, Auditorium and Combined editions).

ODEON 13 – Improved Tabulation Tool in Source-Receiver list

The enhanced tabulation tool in Odeon 13 makes it very easy to define multiple sources and receivers.

ODEON 13 – Decay Roses

Decay rose plots make it possible to view the directions at which different parts of decay arrives at a receiver (Auditorium and combined editions).

ODEON 13 – Source Directivity Editor

The enhanced directivity editor makes it easy to define your own directivity balloons for point sources – in particular if only limited data are available.

ODEON 13 – Improved Reflector Coverage

The refector coverage display offers many new possibilities for investigation of reflecting surfaces.

ODEON 13 – Genetic Material Optimizer

The Genetic Material Optimizer is a tool for modifying materials in the room in order to match simulated room acoustic parameters to measured ones. This is very useful when an existing room needs to be improved acoustically using simulations, while the real materials are not completely known.

ODEON 13 – Investigation of Simulation Parameters

This is a tool for evaluating the optimum choice of the calculation parameters: “Number of early rays”, “Number of late rays” and “Transition order”.

ODEON 13 – Two-step Sound Source Calibration.

The new two step calibration in ODEON makes it easier/safer to calibrate the measurement system by adding a second step to the calibration in the laboratory and repeating this second step in-situ, just before the on-site measurements.

ODEON 13 – Auralisation of Measured Impulse Responses

Listen to measured impulse response and perform convolutions with anechoic signals in order to auralise how they would sound inside the room.

ODEON 13 – Frequency, Phase and Cepstrum

Plot the frequency response, the phase and the cepstrum graphs of a measured impulse response.

ODEON 13 – Bounding Box

This simple function helps you creating a “dummy” box around your geometry, in case it includes gaps and holes that would lead rays to escape. The bounding box makes it possible to simulate outdoor propagation.

ODEON 13 – Manual setting of Onset and Truncation times in Meaured Impulse Responses

Although ODEON automatically detects the onset and truncation times in an impulse response, it is often desirable to have manual control on these parameters. The measuring system in ODEON 13 allows such versatility.
