Need acoustic simulation software (free)

Hello !

I am building a new HT room and I am searching for a simulation software to calculate sound refelxion to localize acoustic panels and base trap. etc.

I know there is someting for that on the net but I could not find it again (I sould save a bookmark for that...)

Is someone on the forum could help me to find out ?

Thanks !

JP

I have CARA, which to my knowledge is unsupported, although they still sell it. It's a bit of a learning curve and the calculations take a long time, but the results matched my rooms bass response pretty well and helped me with speaker placement and listening position.

Nothing free out there to deal with bass traps that I am aware of.

Sorry, I missed the free part. CARA is most definitely not free -- cheap for what you get, though.
