Software Based Sound System Measurement Software and Measurement Hardware

SMAART V8 Measurement Software

At its core, Smaart is a computer based dual-channel FFT platform that we use in our work as audio engineers to view the frequency content of signals or measure the response of our electrical and electro-acoustic systems, all to better make informed decisions about the deployment and operation of those systems. Getting started with Smaart v8 requires some basic hardware requirements beyond the Smaart software and host computer. At the minimum, for electro-acoustic systems (PA system analysis), a 2×2 audio device interface and a single measurement microphone will suffice. This is however only the beginning, as Smaart is purpose-built to scale up to fit the requirements of even the most complex systems and environments. The only practical limitation of Smaart is your own – be it expanding your hardware universe, or improving your knowledge through practice and training.

SMAART I-O Dual Channel Measurement Interface

The Smaart I-O is a measurement grade 2x2 USB audio interface designed and built specifically for use with Smaart v7 Measurement Software. The I-O features two high-quality, active balanced inputs with 50 dB of computer adjustable gain in precision 1 dB steps. These input gains are monitored directly by Smaart allowing the user to retain accurate SPL calibration while varying measurement signal input levels. 

Powered by the USB port of your computer (or via the optional 5 VDC jack), the Smaart I-O provides a compact and portable measurement-quality input for your Smaart rig.

RTA-420 with Calibration File

LIke it's predecessor, the NEW Rational Acoustics branded RTA-420 is a great little budget-friendly measurement mic with an impressively flat response curve for its price. The RTA-420 features heavy-gauge steel construction and measurement performance to rival high-end microphones costing many times more. Makes a great starter mic, spare or "B" rig mic and goes places you would be nervous to take your high-end, lab quality mic.  The RTA-420 makes multi-microphone measurements affordable for the  rest  of us. 

The new Rational RTA-420 comes with a mic clip and a spiffy new bright yellow windscreen, which is great for spotting your mic in dark venues. And, it includes a custom-designed soft-sided carrying case that accommodates and organizes 2 microphones plus their accessories.
