Audieum Modal: Calculating room modes for odd rooms

setting up a new studio

When was the last time you tried to figure out what is causing those nasty bass issues in your studio?


Two hours ago?

Like, right now? 😛

Somehow it seems like it’s an on-going, never-ending problem..

And if you’re anything like me, you landed on one of a gazillion available “room mode calculators” sooner or later.

And also like me, you probably realized fairly quickly that it’s a rather humbling experience.

Unless your room is a rectangular bunker, their usefulness ends up being marginal. At best.

So you can understand my excitement when I got an email from Andrea Cicero, telling me that he’s developed a FEM-based room mode calculator that works in rooms of any shape.

He’s also packaged it up in an easy-to-use web based editor to make it as accessible as possible to us acoustics newbs.


Let’s find out if it delivers on its promise.
