#1 Spectrum sound check mode One of the first steps in the Audio Analyzer Verification Checklist is to verify that Smaart is receiving all inputs. You can do this very quickly by pressing play on all inputs and then pressing the 0 (zero) key. #2 Align all visible traces Shift-click on any magnitude trace to […]
Quickly estimate the delay finder setting for less wraparound in the low end of your phase graph in Smaart.
The hardest thing about learning to read the phase graph on an audio analyzer like Smaart is finding a PA to practice with. In the world of my dreams I would have a giant warehouse with every speaker model on earth and endless time to practice tuning different configurations. In the field, we have the […]
You’ve probably run into this problem in Smaart: you are using the RTA graph to find peaks in the response, but as soon as you move your mouse out of the window, the cursor readout disappears! This makes sense, though, right? You want the cursor to show information about whatever graph is in focus. But […]
If you find yourself asking questions like, “What information are those graphs depicting?” and “What does that measurement tell me?” then I have a list of resources for you. Go through each one of them, then come back and tell me what questions you have left. Read the Magnitude Response, Phase Response, and Coherence sections […]
