2 is the FIRST set of audio Plug-In Objects for Vectorworks®.
This pair of tools
enables you to insert simple Hybrid (2D and 3D) models of loudspeakers
and flown or ground-stacked line arrays. While they are not meant to
replace (or even to approach the complexity of) manufacturers' or 3rd-party
high-end sonic analysis software, these flexible tools are great
for things like...:
- Performing basic
audio coverage analysis.
- Creating audio
system layout drawings.
- Checking general
- Visualizing audio
components for projects.
Audio ToolSet 2 tools work with any VectorWorks®
version 2014 or newer - INCLUDING 2019 - and will run on both
Windows and Mac computers.
of the tools...:
- NEW TO AUDIO
TOOLSET 2 version 3.3, loudspeaker
and bumper geometry can easily be changed on-the-fly based on user-defined
specifications or the tools can insert existing Symbols.
configurations can be saved in a library for later retrieval.
- The tools will
help to track relevant information, like loudspeaker brand and model,
weight (in both kilograms and U.S. Pounds), project location, purpose,
drive line, trim height, wattages, and tilt angle (absolute and relative
to other boxes). Most of this information can be displayed directly
on drawings as text blocks.
- Can display variable
symmetrical and, NEW IN AUDIOBOX 2 version 3, asymmetrical
dispersion areas (in both 2D and 3D) . The dispersion lines compensate
for the project "floor" (the drawing Ground Plane) and a user-input
listening height. Three independently-definable Dispersion Ranges
can be defined so users can visualize loudspeaker performance for different
frequency ranges, key frequencies, crossover points, or db drop-offs.
Each range can be independently Classed and is color-coded.
- NEW TO AUDIOBOX
2 version 2.56 is a toggle to flip loudspeakers to "side-ways"
- NEW TO AUDIOBOX
2 version 3 is an option to create ceiling speakers.
- Adjustable tripods
can be created.
2 features a user-friendly "Config Array..." dialog that includes
automatically updated preview windows so users can instantly see what
they're creating - bumpers, loudspeakers - or changes to the over-all
- Up to 42 loudpeakers
and/or additional bumpers can be inserted in a given array and of up
to three different loudspeaker types in each - for things like subs,
underhangs, etc. Geometry and data for each loudspeaker type is totally
independent of the others.
angles are independent for each loudspeaker and/or additional bumper
in the array.
- Will create flown,
ground stacked, sub-pole, and tripod-based arrays...non-rectangular
and "T"-shaped bumpers, and bumperless arrays.
TO AUDIO TOOLSET 2 version 2.61, features multiple bumpers
per array, extension bars, and rigging guides
are now included.
TO AUDIO TOOLSET 2 version 3.1, data
fields have been expanded and more information can now be entered "in-bulk"
through the "Config Array..." dialog.
excited that versions of the Audio ToolSet 2 tools are now part
- starting with the 2013 version. Like our other tools that have been
incorporated into Spotlight®, the Audio ToolSet 2 tools on which
so many users have come to depend are still very-much alive. We
will continue keep them working in even non-Spotlight® versions of
Vectorworks®, to add additional features, and to offer faster
turn-around on future modifications. By continuing to support and
to develop our versions of the tools, we're
providing even more value, giving you great reasons to purchase,
upgrade, and continue to use Audio ToolSet 2.
