The 2-day Smaart Basics class is designed to guide users through the essential tasks of configuring and running Smaart v.8 for Real-Time RTA, Spectrograph and Transfer-Function Measurements.
Shorter and more condensed than the 3-day Smaart Operator Fundamentals class, Smaart Basics provides only an overview of the Impulse Response mode functionality of Smaart and focuses less on system measurement theory and more on practical application and deployment of Smaart in everyday system engineering tasks.
Live measurements are featured throughout the class to demonstrate how and why specific features function as they do, as well as how to interpret the data obtained to achieve reliable measurements. Hands-on practical application exercises using the standard Smaart v.8 platform are featured throughout the course. Smaart Di users may use the v.8 demo for instructional purposes, and apply the techniques and processes used for essential system engineering tasks to their work environment.
Class price includes class materials, breakfast & lunch on all class days, class t-shirt and a Certificate of Attendance upon completion of the class. Class fee must be paid in full at time of registration. Class fees may be paid via credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover). Click HERE to view our refund / cancellation policy.

The measurement signals used in the instruction of the Basics class will be distributed using a Dante audio network. Class attendees must bring a laptop computer with both the latest version of Smaart v8 measurement software and Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) installed. A 30 day demo version of Smaart v8 is available online at www.rationalacoustics.com/demo-smaart. Dante Virtual Soundcard can be obtained from the Audinate (Dante Virtual Soundcard’s manufacturer) web site at www.audinate.com either by purchase or via a temporary trial installation.
