Wave Length Calc

Widget calculates studio sound wave lengths.

Overview

Wave Length Calc is a Dashboard widget that can calculate standing wave length in your studio control room.

In a studio environment where standing waves in a range can mess up your perception of the actual sound. A so-called standing wave is a resonating frequency between, e.g. 2 parallel walls which distance is the same (or even 2 or more times) as the actual wave length.

A nice idea that works well enough, but surely it would be of more practical value to be able to enter the room dimensions and calculate the resonant frequencies, rather than the other way around? Even with this widget you're guessing whether a resonance is due to the room or other factors if you don't know the exact dimensions; if you know the dimensions already, its easier to calculate once at the beginning of the session so you know from the start where your problem frequencies are likely to be and set up the recording environment accordingly (thus saving the time needed to test other elements of the studio or re-arrange the instruments and microphones). Not a bad idea, it just seems to me that trying to compensate for standing waves after you've started recording isn't the most efficient strategy.

Thanks for your suggestion. I just modified so you can type wave length to find out frequencies as well. Please try version 2.0b1.
