    Rational Acoustics has just published the Smaart v.7 User Guide, available for free download (PDF) from the company website. The new 180-plus-page document covers virtually every aspect of working with the Smaart v.7 measurement and analysis platform. In addition, it supplies considerable information on fundamental audio measurement concepts, industry standards, measurement rig set-up, sound source characteristics, and other system measurement “geekery.” Also included is the entire Impulse Response Guide published in 2015, as well as the entire licensing and installation… View this post

    Auralex Acoustics has introduced the new Studio6 Bass Trap, designed to help control low-frequency sound in recording environments. The Studio6 Bass Trap is specified as providing effective broadband control from 40 Hz and up, measuring two by four feet, and 6 inches deep. At the request of customers, it’s also stand-mountable using optional ProMAX stands, allowing it to be used in a broader number of temporary recording and mixing situations or where a permanent installation is not possible or desired.… View this post

    When measuring loudspeaker systems, the question of phase response often arises. I thought it might be informative to review setting the receive delay within a measurement system so that the displayed phase response is the “correct” one. I have the word correct in quotes above because for a given magnitude response there are an infinite number of equally valid phase responses. This is due in part to what is called propagation delay. This is simply the time of flight of… View this post

    The ancient Roman amphitheatre in Verona was the magnificent setting for Intimissimi on Ice, an evening of music and dance on a vast iced stage, all supported by ArrayProcessing from d&b audiotechnik. Designed in the classical amphitheatre style, the two thousand year old stone structure is elliptical in shape, with the outer walls standing about seventeen meters in height. The audience was seated in the remaining half of the arena floor and on seating built into the steeply tiered bleachers… View this post

    The Singapore American School (SAS) has installed a Meyer Sound Constellation acoustic system in its upgraded school auditorium, fixing a sound issue that prevented performers from hearing each other clearly. The system now gives students the opportunity to learn about active acoustics technology first hand, while also providing a customizable sound experience for community productions. “As a school, we have a bold vision to be a world leader in education, cultivating exceptional thinkers, prepared for the future,” says Dr. Chip… View this post

    System designers interested in understanding room acoustics, loud-speaker characteristics and how they act in enclosed spaces are encouraged to attend SynAudCon’s “Sound System Design” in-person seminar scheduled for February 22-24, 2016 in Houston, Texas. The in-person seminar, presented by SynAudCon owner Pat Brown, presents a logical, intuitive, and comprehensive approach to sound system design that begins with analysis of the room’s acoustics. From there attendees learn how to select and place loudspeakers to achieve speech intelligibility and music clarity. In… View this post

    This article is provided by ChurchTechArts.   There has been a lot of discussion about how loud we run our services. I got to thinking about this recently while going through a thread on the Church Sound Forum. The question was posed, “How loud at FOH?” The answers varied greatly, from in the mid 80s to well over 105 dB SPL. Then a debate ensued about whether the metering of the sound should be done with A-weighting, C-weighting, fast or… View this post

    phase alignment
    Bob McCarthy 01/06/16 06:11 AM,
    The setting of delay times in signal processors is one of the principal techniques of system optimization. In most cases the timing is set to “align” two (or more) signal sources so as to create the most transparent transition between them. The process of selecting that time value can be driven by time or phase, hence the relevant terms are “time alignment” and phase alignment.”  These are related but different concepts and have specific applications. It’s important to know which… View this post
