Introducing the Reverberation Teaching Assistant. This article will discuss how this Teaching Assistant works and provide tips on demonstrating it with your clients.
This visualization was designed with several goals in mind:
In the Teaching Assistants section of the Global Tab, select either Long Burst or Short Burst.
A burst of particles, representing the energy of sound, appears just in front of you. These particles bounce around the room until they either run out of energy or hit an absorptive surface, like carpet or certain acoustic treatments.
The speed and number of particles varies based on the size of the room. Large rooms will have more, faster-moving particles than smaller rooms.
When used appropriately, the reverberation assistant is fun and can be used to reinforce the importance of proper room treatment.
If room treatment has been ruled out for budgetary reasons, this assistant provides an opportunity to share budget-friendly strategies, like installing heavy drapes over windows. While these don’t increase this project’s value directly, you’ve demonstrated technical knowledge that gains trust, elevates you above the competition, and increases the likelihood of this client coming back with their next, higher-budget project in the future.
The following is an example of using this assistant with a client:
The Reverberation Teaching Assistant is a fast and effective method for educating clients on the basic behavior of sound. We're excited to hear your feedback and success stories!
