Overview

A 3D modeling program for acoustic design and analysis, Bose Modeler software helps system designers and acoustic consultants predict sound system performance in both indoor and outdoor environments. From places of worship and multi-purpose spaces to hospitality venues, stadiums, auditoriums, and more.

The software’s advanced algorithms predict acoustic performance of a space, including direct and reflected energy, and Speech Transmission Index (STI). Designers can iterate quickly using Modeler’s proprietary calculation pipeline, allowing them to trial different loudspeaker configurations and placements for optimal coverage, SPL, and intelligibility.

Modeler also features an import function — to easily translate model data from standard CAD software — and an acoustic matching function, which matches the acoustic performance of the model to that of the real room. Array construction tools also help automate the creation and layout of complex loudspeaker arrays.

The latest version of Modeler merges previous versions — Modeler Standard and Modeler Plus — and removes the security key requirement, giving a wider range of designers, even students, the ability to freely create accurate and compelling sound system designs.

FAQs

What is new with Modeler sound system software?

Starting with Modeler version 6.10, the software is now free to download and use, without the need for security keys or other restrictions. All of the features available in the previous modeler plus version are now standard.

I already export my SketchUp files to DXF. Is there a better way to transfer my room model data into the Modeler software?

No. You can create all the key room model surface parameters directly in SketchUp while you are creating the model. Then use the Modeler software plugin to transfer your work directly to Modeler software.

Do I need SketchUp Pro to export to Modeler software, or will the free version work?

The free version works just fine. Please use version 8—either the free or the Pro version.

What are the system requirements for Modeler software?

The minimum system requirements for running Modeler are:

Operating System: Microsoft® Windows® 7, x86 and x86-64 bit versions

Processor: 1GHz processor (or better)

RAM: 512MB of RAM available (1GB recommended)

Disk Space: 512MB of disk space available (1GB recommended)

Minimum Monitor Resolution: 1366 x 768 WXVGA

Can I open old Modeler models or project files with newer versions of Modeler software?

All projects and models created in a previous version of Modeler software can be opened in the latest Modeler software, with all surfaces, loudspeaker and listener locations preserved. Once these projects and models are saved in the latest version of Modeler software, they cannot be opened with the previous Modeler software versions.

Is training or classroom instruction available for the Modeler software?

Modeler software includes a comprehensive tutorial and user manual. We strongly recommend that all users take the time to complete the user tutorial and learn Modeler software. If you have never used it, we believe the user tutorial and manual will give you the knowledge you need to get started. The software also has a built-in searchable help file system.
