in addition to their own software, many manufacturers do provide very

write such a tool (at least if you want to simulate room reflections as
well, which most of the vendor-supplied tools happily ignore).

your best bet is a virtual windows machine and the software that comes
with the system for free.

same here. the data is usually available (unless the vendor also sells
controllers and wants to tie you to their own offerings).
but i don't see why anybody would be stingy with the controller (at a
measly 4k euros) when they've just spent well upwards of 50k for the
speakers...
in those price ranges, there is simply _no_ incentive to go open-source.
i agree it would be more fun, but it's not going to happen.

moreover, with an XTA, i know it only crashes when there's a machine
connected via USB (don't do that, then). with a pc to control the
speakers, i never know what it'll do next after being kicked about by
underpaid roadies who have no idea what's in the case they just tossed
out of the trailer.
