Smaart class at Riksteatret, may 2019

16 sound engineers from pretty much all over the world came together at Riksteatret to enjoy 3 days of Smaart class. It were three intense days with sound system measurements and a lot of “nerding”, as they call this in Norway.

The Seven Sound System Dwarves

The official mascots of Rational Acoustics.  

These seven little gremlins like nothing more than to give your sound system their own distinctive voice.

Sure, they’re friendly enough when encountered as a balanced group, but hanging out with any one of them for too long can drive you to distraction – or worse.

Don’t be fooled by their diminutive stature and (sometimes) cute appearance – these little offenders have a long rap sheet filled with everything from simple charges of disturbing the peace to more flagrant offenses like system hijacking and mix vandalism.

Tubby – Low, slow and rarely on the go, but a formidable ally for getting a house rockin – when Tubby gets out of control, he has a bad habit of rolling around the bottom of your system and squashing everything.
Boxy – This dwarf certainly doesn’t suffer from claustrophobia. Boxy loves the congestion of enclosed spaces and is often criticized for his lack of openness. Given the chance, Boxy would remove all letters from your system’s alphabet besides the vowels “a” “o” and “u”.
Honky – A long-time supporter and admirer of Charlie Brown’s teacher, this little loudmouth likes to lend even the most well behaved system that lovely “paging horn” sound. Honky’s one ambition in life is to show off your system’s horns – even when you would rather he didn’t.
Barky – Never shy about giving you a piece of his mind, Barky can be aggressive about getting his point across. And mind his bite – you definitely don’t want this little guy to “sit” and “stay” in your system.
Edgy – A known associate of lead guitarists and harmonica-wielding frontmen, Edgy has been known to display some serious “anger management issues.” Spend too much time with this sharp, irritable little fellow and your ears just may need a valium.
Sibilant – Known to frequent clubs and discos with his pal Tubby, Sibilant is a great lover of all that “sizzles”. Unfortunately too much is often never enough for this high-strung dwarf. To be honest, we don’t even know if this little guy is from planet Earth. Seriously, just look at him!
