Rational Acoustics Advanced User Seminar

Standard Session Length: 8 hrs.

Course Description:


This course covers advanced topics in the application of Smaart, AcousticTools and other measurement tools and platforms (as appropriate) for system alignment and response optimization.  These sessions seek to advance the synergy between an engineer and their measurement tools, concentrating heavily on measurement choices, data interpretation and alignment decisions/compromises. Advanced sessions are held in actual performance venues to ensure appropriate “real world” data acquisition and interpretation practice. Class sizes are limited, and participants are expected to bring their entire measurement rig (mics, preamps, cables, etc.).  Attendee conformance with prerequisites is mandatory.

*Prior attendance of a Smaart Fundamentals & Applications Classes is reccomended and qualifies as meeting this course’s prerequisites.*

Topics Covered:

These sessions normally follow a basic system alignment scenario appropriate for the host venue.  Individual topics to be covered will be determined by class interests, venue specifics and whatever rears its head during the alignment process.



Participation in this seminar assumes a full working knowledge of Smaart and at least six months working experience with Smaart measurement software or other dual-channel measurement systems.  Prior system alignment experience is required. This course also assumes a working knowledge of professional sound system engineering practices and basic audio fundamentals.  If you have any questions concerning course prerequisites, please do not hesitate to contact us prior to registration.
