There is an installer now. The new version of mso.zip (download here
) contains only install_mso.exe, which is the new installer. This should get rid of the problem with the CHM file showing up as blank and needing to "unblock" it.
I thought I'd just give a quick overview of the example in the tutorial. It uses data provided by Jag768, in which he uses a Geddes-style configuration. This configuration is as follows:
- No high-pass on the mains
- An LR4 low-pass for each sub, but with different cutoff frequencies allowed for each one
- Separate delay for each sub
- Separate gain for each sub
- Four PEQ filters per sub
Once the project is set up and configured to display the combined response of main speakers and all subs at each listening position, you get the following result before optimization. The plots use offsets to separate the traces. The top trace has no offset, while the next three have offsets of -15 dB, -30 dB and -45 dB respectively.
This room is problematic, with lots of peaks and dips in the responses, especially at listening position 3. Then the optimization is run, and the following result is obtained.
There's good improvements, not only in the response at the MLP, but also with seat-to-seat variation. The responses of the sub channels, which have the PEQs constrained to only cut, not boost, are shown below.
Strange looking responses! If your goal is to maximize output, the gains would have to be constrained to not vary as much, but this would probably result in worse flatness of the responses after optimization.
The response at the MLP could be further flattened using the shared filters on the subs if desired.
