This page assumes the following:
You have a working Smaart 7 DI, Smaart 7 or Smaart 8 rig and your demo hasn’t expired.
If you have used SMAART enough to be convinced that it’s a worthy investment and want to purchase it, contact me.
From this point forward things will become more involved and complicated so it’s vital that you feel good about the information presented on Essentials 101,102,103.
The basic concept behind a sound system (any system) is that you place the speakers where they belong, aim them to properly cover their area (as defined by the system design), tune them to provide consistent frequency response and level and lastly listen and adjust as necessary. The importance of listening as you measure can’t be overstated. At the end of the process, the audience will hear the result and their ear to brain pathway will decide whether or not you succeeded or not. Your ears provide a reality check for the decisions you will make along the way. Verify your rig, pay close attention to how you place your mics and which mic is providing what data. If you don’t have a firm grasp on how to use your measurement rig, you can waste a lot of time and end up with terrible results.
