Rational Acoustics has announced the release of Smaart v8.4, the fourth major version update to its flagship Smaart v8 measurement platform. This free update includes many significant feature additions, interface modifications and bug fixes and is recommended for all Smaart v8 users.
Smaart v8.4 expands on the SPL monitoring capability of Smaart v8 – making v8.4 a full-featured SPL monitoring solution in addition to its Real Time Frequency and Impulse Response Mode measurement capability.
“SPL monitoring has become an increasingly important component of modern live sound engineering,” says Rational Acoustics product manager Chris Tsanjoures. “We have spent a great deal of time and energy creating an entire comprehensive SPL monitoring suite within Smaart v8. That, combined with a host of other feature additions and improvements, makes 8.4 a really significant update.”
Primary feature additions in Smaart v8.4 include a new set of SPL data logging and interface improvements, a new web browser interface for remotely viewing inputs that are actively logging SPL, 64-bit support for MacOS Catalina, new hotkeys for averaging dialogs, and various overall performance enhancements.
