I have been using Odeon and other room acoustics modelling packages throughout my 15 year career. When the time came to choose a package for my own company to use, I had no hesitation in selecting Odeon.
I’ve always found the software very intuitive to use, and after a much appreciated hour long refresher session over Skype had no problems creating a model even after a 5 year break from Odeon.
In fact my biggest challenge was learning how to use Sketch Up to create the model geometry! There are clear benefits to us as consultants in being able to accurately model and predict complex and large volume spaces, but the benefits to our clients are immense too.
Not only can we optimize treatment solutions to reduce costs, we can also auralize different options so that our clients can understand the implication different options without needing to speak the “language” of acoustics.
