I am pretty impressed with Anthums new stuff, I was wondering if anyone knew of any good acoustic software to analyze a room, like a wave file and a mic that connects to a pc and gives you a report.

Room Eq Wizard, Holme Impulse, Even the acoustic measurement feature of The Audio Rightmark.

IME the pay-for software can be better, but when you are learning and even after that, these freeware products can help people be highly productive. The first part of the learning curve is often dominated by learning the mechanics of measuring and taking actions with anything that works, while later on you may develop a clear understanding of why you need something better.

When you are learning how to drive at all, a subcompact car can be a very effective tool, but if you want to learn high performance driving you will need the better vehicle.

IME none of the freebies are so bad that they will frustrate you early on. They are actually remarkably good.

The Room EQ Wizard software has become the de facto standard the past few years. It's extremely competent, and it's free. More here:
