Special 1-Day "Hands-On Measurement" Advanced User Practicum. Previous attendance at a Smaart Operator Fundamentals class on the current version of Smaart is REQUIRED in order to take this class. Class size is limited to 16 attendees and students must bring their own Smaart rigs in order to participate.

The "Hands-On Measurement" Advanced User Practicum is specifically constructed to provide attendees with hands-on experience using Smaart measurements to make standard verification and alignment decisions.

Topics Covered:

  • Smaart Rig Set-up, Verification and Calibration
  • Configuring Basic and Multi-Channel Measurement Set-Ups
  • Managing Simultaneous Multi-Mic Measurements
  • Setting System Timing
  • Measuring Outside! (Weather and venue allowing)

The Advanced User Practicum requires the prior attendance of a Smaart Operator Fundamentals course on the current version of Smaart. The Practicum may be taken directly after the May 7-9 Smaart Operator Fundamentals class, or may be taken alone.  However anyone registering for the Practicum alone will need to provide the date and location of a previously attended Smaart Operator Fundamentals Class. Students who wish to attend this Practicum but do not meet this prerequisite must obtain Instructor approval prior to registration. This session also assumes a working knowledge of professional sound system engineering practices and basic audio fundamentals.

Required Equipment:
Students will need to bring their own basic measurement rigs (computer, IO and measurement mics) and should have the latest version of Smaart and Dante Virtual Sound Card (DVS) installed.  Some measurement configurations will require attendees to use their own Smaart rigs, while other applications will use equipment provided by Rational Acoustics. In the cases where students are required to use their own rigs, measurement signals will be accessible either via analog XLR connections or Dante. 

Dante DVS can be obtained from the Audinate web site at www.audinate.com either by purchase or via a temporary install.

Class price includes class materials, breakfast & lunch and a Certificate of Attendance upon completion of the class. Class fees are paid via credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover). Click HERE to view our refund / cancellation policy
