HAA Home Theater Calibration Tools in AudioTools

We are very excited to announce the release of the HAA Home Theater Calibration tools, available for HAA Pro Installers and home users. This app was built in collaboration with the Home Acoustics Alliance (HAA), and is a full implementation of the tools used in the HAA Home Theater Certification Course, taught by Gerry Lemay.

See this page on the HAA site for more information.

Note that this course and tools are not included in the “All-In” option, as this is a third-party application. If you purchased an All-In license you can get the HAA Pro Tools at a discount, which will be applied automatically.

AudioTools on Mac M1/M2

We can confirm the exciting news that AudioTools (and our other apps) are now available for download from the Mac App Store on the new awesome M1 Macs! This includes the new MacBook Pro, Macbook Air, MacBook Pro 13, new iMacs, and the new Mac Mini. I have a MacBook Pro with the M1 chip, and it is truly amazing. Much faster than my 2-year old MacBook Pro development machine. 

Everything runs great, other than a few minor display bugs that we will fix soon. The basic interface is very similar to the iPad, except that you can stretch and shrink the app window, or even run it full screen!

Any audio device that works with Mac can be used as input, you just select the input source from the Mac System Preferences panel.

NOTE: For iAudioInterface2 users, please see the information on our new USB-C cable, and how to use iAudioInterface2 on a Mac.

And best of all, you don’t have to pay extra to run AudioTools there, your app purchase and in-app purchases all transfer for free! We’re very excited to be able to offer a solution for laptop and desktop machines, and as Apple rolls out more models with the M1 chip we will continue to support them.

To download AudioTools, open the App Store and type “AudioTools” in the search field, and make sure you are looking in “iPhone and iPad Apps”.

New! LARSA Now Supports External Test Signals, works with Atmos

We’ve added the ability for LARSA to use an external chirp signal, so you don’t have to connect your iOS device to your sound system. Check out the LARSA page for more information. And, since Surround Generator now has the LARSA test signal, you can run LARSA on your Atmos home theater system.

Dolby Atmos 9.1.6 Signals available in Surround Generator (Apple TV)

It’s been our goal to add Atmos system testing to the AudioTools platform, and we are now happy to announce that we have added full support for Atmos 9.1.6 audio surround test signals in our Apple TV Surround Generator app

Route pink noise, polarity test, Impulse, and Sweeps to any channel, either on the main 9 channels, the 6 ceiling channels, or the subs. Use these signals with AudioTools to set up your system, or to test that the system was installed properly. You can also find out exactly what your processor is doing with signals that do not have speakers. Apple TV 4K is required for Atmos signals.

For a limited time, the Atmos signals in-app purchase is on sale! To install the Surround Generator, go to the App Store on your Apple tv 4k, and search for “Surround Generator”. Get the app and add the Atmos signals now while this sale is running.

New Demo Videos

What’s New:

iPad Pro (USB C models) Now Approved for USB Audio

The USB audio support on the USB C iPads had serious problems, but the worst of them seem to fixed now. The labelling of USB audio devices as “headset mic” has been fixed, as has the incorrect USB gain issue. These models are now full compatible with our USB microphones, uTestMic and uPrecisionMic. Please make sure you update your iPad to the latest iOS 13 release.

However, some problems are still remaining:

  • No support for legacy MFi products, even with adapters. iTestMic2 and iPrecisionMic will not work at all, even with an adapter. No plans to add this, according to Apple.
  • No support for USB HID controls. This means we cannot provide an iAudioInterface2 control panel. Apple also has not plans on adding this support.

Surround Signal Generator for Apple TV

Download this app to your Apple TV, and use it to generate test signals for use with AudioTools. Now available.
