What is Smaart Operators Fundamntals class?

The 3-day Smaart Operator Fundamentals class comprises the material you need to know to use a Smaart rig effectively – it is the both starting point for learning to use Smaart, as well as the material that you will need to return to on an ongoing basis and master to become an advanced user. This class provides attendees a full functional knowledge of how Smaart operates as a tool and the application of Smaart to real-world sound system engineering and alignment. This class covers all functionality within the program (RTA, Spectrograph, Transfer Function and Impulse Response).

Advanced User Application Practicum?

Focuses on the use of the Smaart measurement platform in “real world” professional audio engineer work. They examine the implementation of the information presented in the Smaart Basics or Operator Fundamentals classes – the various measurement capabilities, control parameters, data reading and measurement rig configuration skills – in using Smaart as tool for professional sound system engineering tasks.
