        Automotive Audio Workflows

          In the run-up to the AES 2022 International Conference on Automotive Audio, taking place in Dearborn, Michigan, the Audio Product Education Institute (APEI) presents a special webinar event focused on the future of automotive audio workflows. In this session, Roger Shively will lead a discussion with John Whitecar (DSP Concepts), Evan Bunner (Tymphany), and Matt Marchese (Tymphany) on the evolution of automotive audio systems, technology, and implementations.

          Modeling and Measurement webinar exploring the latest updates to the Acoustics Module in COMSOL Multiphysics 6

            The AES Audio Product Education Institute (APEI) promotes a new Modeling and Measurement webinar exploring the latest updates to the Acoustics Module in COMSOL Multiphysics 6.0 and its possibilities for loudspeaker development. In this session, Mads J. Herring Jensen, Technology Manager, Acoustics, at COMSOL, together with Roger Shively (JJR Acoustics), and Tim Whitwell (Tectonic Audio Labs) will provide an overview and discuss the areas of improvement for speaker design.

            Electroacoustic Simulation in COMSOL Multiphysics 6

              The release of COMSOL Multiphysics 6.0 brings major updates to the Acoustics Module and the simulation of electroacoustic transducers. This includes a simplified workflow for setting up hybrid lumped-FEM models of loudspeakers, a user interface for the simulation of magnetomechanical forces in transducers, and much more. Several of the new features are the direct results of feedback collected from users within the audio industry.
