Point sources can be defined from a directivity pattern, gain, equalisation and a delay, allowing the definition of natural sound sources as well as loudspeaker systems. Loudspeaker data in CLF (Common Loudspeaker Format) can be found at www.CLFgroup.org.
Array sources can be imported from the extensible XML-format or can be created from point sources within the Odeon array source editor giving a nearfield plot, a farfield balloon as well as a direct sound map with frequency responses in a few seconds.
Line sources and surface sources are particularly useful for calculations in industrial environments. The example is a turbine from a power station.
