Rational Acoustics has announced that the latest major release of Smaart v.7 (v.7.4) has been released and is now available for download for both the Mac and PC.
This is a major version update with significant feature additions and interface modifications and is recommended for all Smaart v.7 users.
The new release features an overhaul of the Impulse Response Mode including a significant user interface update and comprehensive integration of the measurement and analysis capabilities from Smaart AcousticTools.
While earlier releases of Smaart v7 included some AcousticTools features, the v7.4. update completes the integration process with the addition of enhanced versions of all of its intelligibility and acoustic response capabilities, including: T60/RT60, EDT, D/R, Clarity (C10, C35, C50, C80), TLow, TMid, Bass Ratio (TLow/TMid), %ALCons, STI (measured indirectly from impulse response), STIPA and CIS.
Smaart v.7.4 also offers an assortment of new usability enhancements such as Peak Holds with either timed or infinite hold capability, Locked Cursors which allows users to snap current peaks with a hotkey or track the highest peak in a trace in real time and Dual Spectrographs in which users can display two spectrograph plots simultaneously. User-driven features such as Multi-Device Transfer Function Measurements, User-Defined Views and Zooms and Enhanced Trace dB offset have also been included.
A full overview of all updates & additions can be found in the Support Section of the Rational Acoustics website.
Details on new feature additions, a full Revision History including features and bug fixes, and a complete listing of Smaart’s accelerator (hot) keys are included in the Smaart Help File. Users are encouraged to read the v.7.4 Help File after installation & activation.
The “Getting Started with Smaart v.7” User Guide has also been updated to incorporate the new features available in Smaart v.7.4, including an entire new section dedicated to the updated Impulse Response Mode and new intelligibility and acoustic response capabilities.
