Systems Design and Optimization MAPP 3D


Two-Day Training session from 13th to 14th of September, 2022
From 9.30 am to 6 pm
at Abu Dhabi B Meeting Room, Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC)

Training intro

Course Overview

This two‑day course organized and executed in collaboration with Meyer Sound explores the relationship between the predictive perspective of the MAPP 3D Sound System Design Tool and actual sound system performance as measured with FFT‑based transfer‑function analyzers.

The instructors plan to generate and compare data using both tools, in order to help users better understand the correlation between the two. Upon completion of the course, attendees will possess a clearer idea of how sound systems behave in both modeled and real space, and with it, a more informed approach to accurately designing and optimizing systems using Meyer Sound solutions.
