"In the past few years, M-7 has been doing industrial scanning in a partnership with [Mr. Eike] Thiele. The German engineer now is creating a North American unit of his consulting business and basing it at M-7’s plant in the Ohio Works Industrial Park. His new company is affiliated with the Youngstown Business Incubator."So now we can now add one more company affiliated with the YBI to be operating in downtown youngstown.
and this company has German roots.
Willkommen to Youngstown!
A while back YBI-based Turning Technologies opened their first international office in London, and that company's knowledge of international markets is being spread to other growing firms at the YBI.

Back to acoustics.
The previously mentioned story (with accompanying video here) delves into a project originating from a backyard dinner between two neighbors - the president of M-7 Technologies and a violin professor at YSU's Dana School of Music.
Using the scanning equipment, an exact computer model of the interior space of Ford Recital Hall will be made. Afterwards:
"The next step will be to measure the acoustics of the hall and convert that to a digital file as well. Then, high-powered computers will play the digital music inside the digital model of the hall. Organizers will perform virtual experiments by adding sound-absorbing panels to look for ways to improve the hall’s performance."And then, perhaps this method of analysis can be used at performance spaces around the world.

How would Sabine's famous formula have changed if he used this technology back in 1895?
