- The User Account Control may block / warn against the installation. Ignore or click “more info” to proceed.
- Windows Defender may prevent write access to designated part of “My Documents”, and perhaps other parts of the hard-drive too. Write access can be restored under settings for threat and virus protection.
- Contact us if you’re in doubt – and we will verify that the install files are still 100% OK.
- According to a couple of users, Audiolense doesn’t run on machines with more than 31 cpu cores. We are working on diagnosing the cause. A workaround is to limit the number of cores used through MSConfig (Win+R | msconfig | Boot | Advanced Options | Number of processors) and set it at a maximum of 31 cores.
If the program doesn’t run normally, you may need one or two of these:

[20 dec 2020]
- Made improvements to the wasapi measurement method
Wasapi gave too few available channels with certain sound cards. A change has been made that will hopefully eliminate this problem.
Wasapi capture does (still) not work on Lynx Hilo, which has been used for testing. Time will show if this is a widespread problem.
In any case, this change will hopefully make it easier for several users to combine usb dac with usb mic during measurement.
[29 nov 2020]
- Fixed initialisation errors in “check speaker connection”
- Fixed bug “default measurement settings”
- Fixed a malfunction in bass boost limiter
- Modified the “quick measurement” settings so the sound card selection is not reset.

[27 jan 2020]
- The new speaker driver alignment came with a bug on TTD per driver…
[25 jan 2020]
Audiolense 6.2 (64 bit)
Audiolense 6.2 (32 bit)
- More robust & reliable speaker driver alignment. The improvement addresses a very rare but serious issue of misalignment of low frequency drivers. Test with a number of measurements suggests that most users will either get the exact same result or a time domain improvement improvement that is probably too small to be heard.
[12 jan 2020]
- Clock drift correction: The correction if each pulse has been slightly improved. In addition there was a time alignment bug that has been fixed.
- Bass boost limiter was operating on a too high frequency. That has been fixed.
[26 dec 2019]
- fixed a channel routing bug in the audiolense convolver correction object
[23 dec 2019]
Audiolense 6.0 (64 bit)
Audiolense 6.0 (32 bit)
The bullet points:
- Most of all, and why this is a new version – Audiolense has been prepared to work in conjunction with the work-in-progress convolver. This will amongst other things support variable length filters (short for tweeter, long for sub woofer), including variable length crossover. A new correction file format for the convolver has also been implemented.
- Wasapi exclusive mode has been implemented. This simplifies non-asio measurements. In principle this should make wasapi as good as asio for measurement.
- User can enforce clock drift correction during measurement.
- The TTD correction have been modified in several places to be more robust and more precise.
- Treble and bass boost limit has been revised in order to be more user friendly.
- Faster filter generation: Multithreading has been implemented for 64 bit version.
- Peak identification which is important to driver & xo alignment have been revised to be more consistent.
- The selective preringing prevention in the time domain correction have been made more robust and hopefully more precise.
- Check speaker connection (measurement) failed under certain conditions. Made a fix to that.
- Implemented a workaround for multi seat correction problem. Cases where the smoothed msm is corrupted. The workaround is to remove and re-enter the measurements to the multi seat pool.
- Some of the less used presets had wrong filter length. This has been fixed.
- Fixed errors related to resampling of measurements.
- The correction generation batch job has been taken out.

Audiolense 6.0 beta (64 bit)
Audiolense 6.0 beta (32 bit)
A new compilation since the last (64 bit) revision was extremely slow. This one has normal speed.
[28 nov 2019]
New beta revision implementing unicode in the player in an attempt to support languages with complex letters, such as japanese and chinese.
[20 nov 2019]
New beta revision where the check speaker connection has been addressed.
[18 sep 2019]
This is a beta release that involves major changes to the code, and only limited bug testing has been undertaken. The beta is released early due to high demand from users who have experienced measurement problems lately. The combination of usb mic and usb card has created problems frequently. If something else fails, the measurement can always be uploaded in Audiolense 5.5 for further processing.
The release also contains a way to deal with a multiseat correction problem where exceptions deep down made the measurements files unfit for the multiseat pool.
All other users are mostly welcome to test the beta. Some of you may get better sound – and we appreciate any help we can get with identifying new bugs that have emerged.
[20 nov 2018]

- A test run that enables the user to inspect removal of problematic reflections
- An option for selective removal of problematic reflections
- Improved TTD pre-filtering that is much more robust and effective than earlier with regards to pre-ringing

Audiolense 3.0 is a thorough makeover and represents a huge step forward.
* New and improved correction procedures in all three versions of Audiolense.
* The changes has made it easier to dial in target response that sounds good. New targets has to be drawn to benefit from the improvements.

[20 jan 2008]
Time alignment resampling bug fixed. The time alignment was not properly resampled earlier.
[8 dec 2007]
Now with a complete rework of the measuremodule – including support for Asio, Direct Sound and Windows MME. In addition:
The measurement bandwidth is further improved. Even the shortest measurement at 44,1 kHz will now be ruler flat to over 20 kHz. The measurement procedure is much faster. We have speeded up the generation of measurement files and the impulse response generation. Use Asio if you can. If not, try MME and Direct Sound and pay attention to the high frequencies. Use the one with the largest measured bandwidth if there is any difference.
We recommend that all users install the new version and keep the old one just in case.
[12 oct 2007]
Note: Old measurements will not load.
Major improvements in the measurement module: The bandwidth of the measurement has been improved. Even the shortest measurement duration now produces full 20Hz – 20kHz measurement with 48 kHz sampling.
96 kHz and floating point measurement is now working. Enabled user to choose to record from left, right or from a mono mic input. This will prevent noise from open inputs to creep into the measurement.
Connection is OK raised an exception if test signal hadn’t been started. Fixed. Fixed the channel ID routine, implemented square wawes for channel id, and a tighter test regime.
Set default sweepstop on subs to 200 Hz.
Revised the directory structure. User can choose default directory, and each Audiolense revision x.x will be installed side by side with old revisions.
Minor improvements in the filter correction procedures: Changed the “longer” correction procedure in 2.0 and Surround version to account for a longer time window of the measurement. Improved frequency smoothing function. Implemented polarity check in the measurement procedure. Low passed drivers will be inverted when required by the XO.
Various visual improvements and visual bug fixes: Added manual y axis control in several charts. Moved the “Filter measurement” button one step up the ladder.
Improvements in the target designer: Target location can now be adjusted in height (but it will not affect the correction filter). Fixed target designer bug that caused troubles when Audiolense wa set to 96 kHz sampling. Improved the targets’ stopband performance.
A string of not reported bugs has been identified and fixed.
[26 August 2007]
* Licensing arrangement revised
* “Open filter folder” added as button and in menu in main form.
* Audiolense 2.0 now has three filter procedures (short / default / long)

Improved exeption handling in speaker setup details. Such as when the user deletes a subwoofer that another speaker is using.
[June 07. 2007]
Audiolense 0.9 (beta)
On Windows Vista beta there has been problems with playback of measurement signals with some sound cards. The problems are depending on the choosen sampling frequency in Audiolense and the audio setup in Vista. Sofar we have always had sucessful measurements when Vista is set to 44.1kHz default and 44.1kHz is used for measurement in audiolense.
There are minor discrepancies between some of the helpfile illustrations and the applications.
Unusual command sequences have been known to cause program errors. to cause program errors.
