LDI2010 and Rational Acoustics present Fundamentals and Applications, a two-day course on Wednesday and Thursday, October 20 and 21, covering the basic principles and practices of setting up a Smaart measurement rig and using it to make RTA, Spectrograph, Frequency Response (Transfer Function), and Impulse Response measurements.

Special attention is paid throughout on how to make valid and useful measurements, as opposed to simply making cool squiggly lines appear on the screen. From an overview of both the general system measurement theory involved as well as the operational context in which Smaart is used, namely in Sound System Engineering and Alignment to focusing on providing the attendee with a functional knowledge of how Smaart operates as a tool before expanding to the application of that tool in sound system engineering, and as much as possible, examining data interpretation as much as acquisition.

This course uses a classroom lecture and lab format, and relies heavily on in-class measurements, utilizing a signal distribution system to distribute the instructor’s stereo measurement signals to the entire class. Please note the “Attendee Equipment” section below.

Taught by: Jamie Anderson, Rational Acoustics, head Smaart instructor

Target audience: The Smaart Fundamentals and Applications course is open to all interested persons. Prior system alignment experience is not required, but is definitely helpful. This course does assume a working knowledge of professional sound system engineering practices and basic audio fundamentals.

Class limit: 20/ $595 ($695 after 9/24/2010)
