To date, Roundware has only allowed for the underlying speaker audio to be arranged in circular shapes. Latitude, longitude and radius, nothing more. Until now.
We are very pleased to announce that, after much effort, we now have polygon speakers! You can now create vastly more complex arrangements of speaker audio, facilitating a whole new degree of sculpting of the audio experience for participants. The shape to the right is perhaps not overly practical, but demonstrates the complexity which can be achieved.
In order to allow for polygon speakers, we had to migrate the Roundware database from MySQL to Postgresql, which gives us a lot more potential for other GIS-related enhancements as well as some other cool features of Postgres that might come in handy. Hopefully sometime relatively soon, audio assets will have the option of non-circular shapes as well.
