The integrated d&b workflow improves efficiency all the way from the start of a project through planning and simulation to control of the final result. Venue data is used to create a model in the d&b ArrayCalc simulation software. The choice of the loudspeakers, placement, levels and configuration is also entered into this room model. The effect of the scheme can be simulated, carefully checked and optimized, until the desired performance is achieved. Once the mechanical array settings have been finalized, the optional ArrayProcessing function within ArrayCalc applies powerful filter algorithms to optimize the level and tonal balance of a line array over the entire audience area. ArrayCalc then generates rigging plans, parts lists for the final proposal. Once ready, the complete system configuration can be opened in the R1 Remote control software. A graphical user interface is generated automatically for the complete system and applies all the defined settings to the amplifiers. The R1 Remote control software is used to make adjustments and monitor the system in as much detail as needed to ensure the sound is in line with the original intention.
