SuperMegaUltraGroovy today announced the immediate availability of FuzzMeasure Pro 3, an audio and acoustical signal-analysis software package for Mac OS X Leopard.
These guys should get an award for the best company and product names ever.
FuzzMeasure Pro 3 builds on FuzzMeasure Pro 2 by adding an array of frequently requested professional tools. Among these new features is a live Sound Pressure Level meter that can be calibrated in the field. The calibration can then be used to produce accurate SPL vs frequency graphs. The SPL meter will aid live sound engineers in monitoring sound levels at multiple positions in a large venue.
In FuzzMeasure Pro 3, users can now add, average, convolve, and correlate measurements to illustrate interactions between multiple systems, such as speakers and crossovers. In addition, FuzzMeasure Pro 3 includes the ability to produce group delay, and harmonic distortion graphs for exploring nonlinear behavior in audio systems.
FuzzMeasure Pro 3 costs $150 for new users; current registered users can upgrade for $75. Users that purchased since June 1, 2007 will receive a free upgrade. Mac OS X version 10.5 (Leopard) is required to use FuzzMeasure Pro 3.
FuzzMeasure Pro 3 has been re-engineered to take full advantage of Leopard, Apple’s latest major release of Mac OS X. FuzzMeasure now supports Spotlight searches, and provides QuickLook functionality for easily locating and viewing FuzzMeasure documents in the Finder. Its user interface fits in beautifully with the Leopard desktop.
FuzzMeasure Pro 3 launches on the three-year anniversary of its 2004 debut. Since that time, FuzzMeasure has grown from highly specialized impedance measurement software for loudspeaker builders to a well-regarded general-purpose audio and acoustical measurement tool used throughout various industries.
While not originally aimed at the live sound industry, key users found that it could be used in the field to answer important questions about their audio setups. Feedback and suggestions from this new segment of users led directly to the new calibrated Sound Pressure Level meter.
