Acoustic testing equipment maker Audio Precision has announced the release of the latest version of its acoustic measurement software.

Version 8.0 of the APx500 software features software performance optimizations that reduce unnecessary computation and speed up sequence execution, said the Oregon-based company, which is owned by Axiometrix Solutions.

The new software will help reduce testing times for audio equipment makers and result in much faster reporting of important measurements such as THD+N, Audio Precision said.

“Version 8.0, along with our regular cadence of enhancements to APx500 software, allows users to take advantage of measurement scalability and efficiency, and benefit from as much as a 40 percent saving in test times,” said Daniel Knighten, Audio Precision general manager.

“This upgrade reinforces our philosophy of delivering a continuous program of improvements that not only saves customers time and money, but also increases the value of their new and existing analyzers.”

The latest version also includes updates to Bose® SoneTrac, allowing users to make SoneTrac measurements in the same way as Bose “to experience more refined control over signal processing in the detection of rub and buzz defects,” Audio Precision said in a statement.

Version 8.0 also gives users access to THD+N results using the FastSweep stimulus in Continuous Sweep, Acoustic Response and Loudspeaker production test.

“Audio Precision’s strength lies in providing elite audio analysis, audio measurement software, and a wide range of modules, options and accessories to support analog and digital audio measurement,” said Knighten. “Our version 8.0 software aims to give engineers the analysis tools they need to support their own innovative product design and manufacturing processes.”
