WHAT'S COOKING AT ACOUSTICA?

What's cooking?  You mean what's baking!  As strange as it seems, the Acoustica team doesn't just create incredibly easy to use software.  Sometimes we get in the kitchen and mix up something to eat (we like good food)!  One of our members, designed, baked and sold award winning cheesecakes for 18 years! It seems fitting, especially at this time of year to share a secret formula with you. Here it is:
