L-Acoustics Releases Soundvision 3.0 - Up to 40 Times Faster and Free of Charge
Updated software to be presented at Prolight + Sound 2015
In 2004, L-Acoustics released Soundvision, the first 3D sound system design program capable of operating in real time. Rapidly adopted by sound designers around the globe, L-Acoustics has since stayed committed to keeping Soundvision up to date with users’ needs and compatible with current software and hardware platforms.
Today, the company announces the release of Soundvision 3.0, fully re-designed on a new architectural platform and up to 40 times faster when calculating the most complex files. The new release is fully compatible with the most recent graphic cards and with PC operating systems from Windows Vista and above and will be available as a free download.
While Soundvision’s code has been fully renewed, the user interface has been kept identical to previous versions, so that current users will be able to apply the updated software instantly. The updated version is also retro-compatible, meaning all files from preceding versions of the software can benefit from the upgrades in Soundvision 3.0.
“Over the years, Soundvision has become an essential tool for touring engineers and system integrators,” explains Stéphane Ecalle, director of marketing at L-Acoustics. “This re-design was a crucial step for us to be able to continue to be ambitious, and now we have a robust platform that can grow with our clients’ needs.”
Soundvision 3.0 will be available online at the opening of Prolight + Sound on April 15th: www.l-acoustics.com/soundvision.
