“Smaart Application Practicums”

Length of Class: 1 Day
Smaart Platform: Smaart v.7

Rational Acoustics’ Smaart Application Practicums focus on the use of the Smaart measurement platform in “real world” professional audio engineer work. They examine the implementation of the information presented in the Operator Fundamentals – the various measurement capabilities, control parameters, data reading and measurement rig configuration skills – in using Smaart as tool for professional sound system engineering tasks.

There are currently 2 different Application Practicums available:

“System Alignment Practicum”

This is the practicum included with all standard 3-day Smaart training sessions offered throughout the year. It focuses specifically on the implementation of the information presented in the Smaart Operator Fundamentals class.

Application Practicum: System Alignment

“Multichannel Measurement Practicum”

This practicum is a more advanced practicum focusing on the complexities of multi-channel measurement configurations and is offered as an optional 4th day at selected Smaart training sessions throughout the year. This practicum is designed to be very hands-on and requires all attendees to have computers outfitted with both Smaart v.7 and Dante Virtual Sound Card.
