JBL Venue Synthesis

Acoustic Simulation Software

Venue Synthesis introduces the ability to run three‐dimensional acoustic predictions, simulate acoustic performance for complete systems, and validate equipment for safe, secure rigging. Users can create or import 3D venue models, interact with realistic 3D models of JBL Professional loudspeakers and accessories and predict coverage on any plane for a full system of JBL products.

The new application, which replaces JBL's Line Array Calculator, has been designed from the ground up to take advantage of an improved acoustical and mechanical engine and offers ultra‐realistic 2D and 3D graphics, featuring accurate renderings of physical rigging components.


With Venue Synthesis, it's never been easier to take systems from design to deployment, from making time‐ and cost‐saving planning decisions to running precise predictions to ensuring safe, secure rigging—all in 3D. Venue Synthesis is perfect for tour sound rental companies, venue owners, acoustic consultants and live sound systems engineers who plan and design acoustic systems of any scale.

Venue Synthesis features three intuitive modes of operation:

Venue Mode: Fast, Simple Modeling Tools

Venue Mode makes it easy to quickly generate venue models in 2D or 3D using industry‐standard geometry formats or build venues from scratch. Import and trace 2D schematics using common file formats to quickly model venues at scale, and create common architectural and audience areas such as balconies using the Special Object Creator.

Acoustics Mode: Design Down to the Smallest Detail

Use Acoustics Mode to build and refine JBL Professional loudspeaker systems, including suspended and ground‐ stacked line arrays, distributed subwoofers and point‐source systems. Configure equipment quantities and parameters including system size, position, angles, DSP and amplifier settings.

Users can visualize fast‐rendering preliminary "Quick SPL" coverage or fully map SPL to a venue for ultra‐ precise coverage visualization with 1/12‐octave frequency resolution—far finer than the industry standard of 1/3 octave—and high‐resolution balloon data for high‐frequency channels measured to 2 degrees. A 3D Full System Mapping feature precisely maps acoustic coverage on any audience plane, and can optimize off‐axis response, complement off‐axis response with point‐source speakers and correct for acoustic shadows such as church pillars and under‐balcony areas.

Mechanics Mode: Ensure Safety and Reliability

Mechanics Mode lets users validate and refine mechanical settings— included suspended arrays—to confirm system feasibility, safety and reliability, using 2D and 3D configuration views.

An Array Statistics tool confirms adherence to regulatory requirements, and a real‐time warning notification system alerts users to safety and reliability issues across the system.
