LEAP 5 Professional Electro Acoustical Development Software 




LEAP-5 is finally here! Encompassing more than 3 years of research & development and over 1 million lines of code, the world's most respected loudspeaker development tool has just taken a quantum leap. The transformation from LEAP-4 is far more than a simple change from DOS to Windows. The software was re-written from the ground up with major advancements in technology and capabilities.
The software now consists of two separate applications: EnclosureShop and CrossoverShop. EnclosureShop handles the transducer modeling and enclosure design, while CrossoverShop provides the tools to design your filter topologies based on measured response data. Together, the two programs form a complete design and analysis package for the development of loudspeaker enclosures and their crossovers. They provide virtually all of the tools necessary to design precision loudspeaker systems for today's demanding audio markets.
Whether your applications are consumer audio, car stereo, professional audio, or custom esoteric marvels, LEAP provides the power, flexibility, and accuracy to investigate every possible design permutation. The open architecture and broad spectrum of features will dramatically reduce your development time, while improving the quality of the final result, and demonstrates why LEAP has become the #1 choice of professional loudspeaker designers worldwide. With an incredible array of features and functions, many of which are newly developed technology, EnclosureShop and CrossoverShop are certain to become the new industry standard for the 21st century.
Advanced Transducer and Enclosure Modeling
provides advanced simulation and modeling of transducer and enclosure behavior. While other software programs offer only simple 2nd/4th order linear highpass approximations, EnclosureShop provides true acoustical network analysis including frequency-dependent, temperature-dependent, and nonlinear effects.

Perhaps the most important enhancement in EnclosureShop is the revolutionary new diffraction analysis engine. Now you will see the full vertical and horizontal polar response, including the effects of diffraction up to 8th order, mutual coupling, and non-linear transducer behavior. Any enclosure shape and transducer layout can be modeled into any domain.

EnclosureShop provides a full-featured 3D editor, allowing visualization of the enclosure shape and providing precise positioning of the transducers, ports, enclosure, and analysis point. This is critical for accurate response predictions.

Advanced Crossover Simulation and Analysis
CrossoverShop provides a powerful arsenal of system modeling, design, and analysis tools for the process of developing crossovers from actual measured data. Both analog and digital or mixed crossover architectures are supported.

A full circuit simulator with graphical schematic editing is provided, which supports passive/active analog and digital FIR/IIR crossover development. You can synthesize your circuits from one of the many included topologies, or create and analyze any arbitrary circuit desired. The crossover design Wizard will automatically produce a fully optimized, complete crossover circuit in minutes!

CrossoverShop includes powerful optimizers for passive, active, and digital crossovers. Optimization may be performed on SPL, impedance, voltage, or group delay data, using single-curve or constraint-based target types and frequency weighting capability.
