The Smaart Workshop is an educational event to introduce the user to the use of the software and get familiar with some audio basics. A teaser if you will. We hope you get interested in learning more … and than see one of our 2 or 3 day classes. The classes are very informative and give you a much deeper understanding of what this all is about … hence our slogan – making sense of the noise

Smaart courses in fall 2018

This year Rational Acoustics is celebrating 10 years. We can look back at a very successful decade of making sense of the noise, and are very certain that there are many more very good years to come. The very high quality of the Smaart software is not the only reason of its great success.

The program has, without a doubt, become the worldwide standard in sound measurement software. But that is not all there is to it. The other main, and maybe even bigger part is our educational scheme. Since the beginning Rational Acoustics is running an extensive course program, second to none on the market. Many have been to our classes and many come back for more.

We learned that, for Scandinavia the classes are best run in fall and late winter. For fall 2018 we are offering the following classes. The courses will be taught by Rasmus Rosenberg.

Copenhagen, Denmark
3 day Smaart operator class – September 11th to 13th – hosted by SC Sound – in Danish language

Oslo, Norway
3 day Smaart operator class – October 2nd to 4th – hosted by Benum – in English

Stockholm, Sweden
3 day Smaart operator class – October 9th to 11th – hosted by Benum Sweden – in English

The proper implementation and use of 10 EaZy has been added to the Smaart curriculum, so the courses will give you a golden opportunity to learn more about SPL monitoring as well.

January 2018 2-day operator fundamentals @ Benum – successfully completed

Even though Oslo was drowning in heavy snowfall and part’s of the public transport weren’t operating,  25 sound engineers which had booked the 2-day operator fundamentals turned up at BENUMS premises in Oslo.

The class is taught by certified Smaart Instructor Rasmus Rosenberg.

I was very happy with the crowd. We really had a very good communication going and lot of questions are asked. I am looking forward to the next time I can come back to Norway, which might be in summer. Thanks a lot to Benum for the fantastic organisation. – Rasmus Rosenberg

Smaart Intro Workshop – Oslo Opera House

We just wanted to thank the sound crew of the Oslo Opera House for having invited us to do a Smaart workshop at their premises.

Thomas gave a 1-day Smaart Intro Workshop with a high focus on the new features and usability of Smaart v.8. It was fun and informative.

Working with the staff of a venue is always very much fun. One has the chance to really dig in and find out a lot. Being given the chance to do so in such prestigious place like the Oslo Opera is mind blowing.

We worked hard and very focussed covered a lot of ground. It´s thrilling to have such skilled  nice people to work with.

Thanks again to for the invitation. – Thomas Züllich, Rational Acoustics Scandinavia
