Today (March 15), Rational Acoustics has released the latest version of Smaart measurement and analysis software—Smaart v8—and it’s available for purchase from the company website (link below). Smaart v8 offers greatly expanded control of the software environment while simultaneously providing easier and more streamlined measurement configuration, control and data handling. “Since the release of Smaart v.7 in 2010 we’ve learned a tremendous amount about what features are important to users in a multi-measurement capable environment, and how they integrate Smaart into the workflow of their daily audio engineering tasks,” says Jamie Anderson, Rational Acoustics CEO. “As an industry, professional audio has fully embraced analyzers as part of the work process and is continually developing new, better and often unforeseen ways to implement them. “With Smaart v8, we are breaking out of the single-window, fixed-GUI world to allow users significantly increased control over their software environment,” he continues. “Users will be much better able to adapt and expand Smaart to match their specific applications.” New features include: • Easier, more intuitive measurement configuration • New tab-based interface • Multi-window capability • Hide/show interface control bars • Touchscreen-friendly user-configurable command buttons • Broadband metering for all input devices • Integrated control for the Smaart I-O • Smaart-to-Smaart API remote control • Better performance on the latest operating systems • Improved stability and security • Native support for high-definition displays For more information about Smaart v8 features and system requirements, go here. Smaart v8 is available for purchase via the Rational Acoustics online store (located here) or from any authorized Rational Acoustics dealer or distributor. For the first 90 days after release, new licenses of Smaart v8 will be available for the existing Smaart v.7 price of $895 and special early-adopter discounts are available for upgrades from Smaart v.5, v.6, v.7 and v.7 Di. Additionally, anyone who purchased Smaart v.7 after December 31, 2015 will receive a free upgrade to Smaart v8 upon its release. Go here for full pricing details.
