iSEMcon unveils a Class 1 microphone with a remarkable capability of exceeding 154dB SPL… all at a highly appealing price point. Don’t miss out on exploring it! Wolfgang Frank, the CEO of iSEMcon, provides a comprehensive product presentation!
During the ISE 2024 event in Barcelona, Thomas engaged in discussions with Jamie Anderson and Chris Tsanjoures regarding the latest advancements in SMAART technology. They provided an insightful overview of Rational Acoustics’ newest offering: the SMAART data modeler.
Smaart Data Modeler is a cutting-edge software tool crafted to facilitate virtual alignment and enhancement of audio systems. It empowers users to make adjustments in level, equalization, polarity, and timing, and observe the impact on Smaart measurement data.
Developed in collaboration with Eclipse Audio, Smaart Data Modeler can simulate filter configurations tailored to specific DSP devices. This functionality enables users to experiment with various filter settings and preview the combined response of multiple traces before finalizing adjustments on the DSP. For supported third-party DSP devices, settings can be exported as compatible file formats for seamless integration. In cases where devices are not supported, a generic DSP mode is available, allowing for manual implementation of settings.

Konsertsystemer, a renowned sound company in Norway, recently held a smaart class in their state-of-the-art recording studio, Studio A. For those unfamiliar, smaart is an acronym for “Sound Measurement Acoustical Analysis Real Time Tool,” a powerful software used by sound engineers to optimize and troubleshoot sound systems.
The class was led by Thomas Züllich, a certified Smaart instructor with years of experience in sound system design and optimization. The class covered various topics, from acoustics and sound system design to advanced measurement techniques using the smaart software. Participants were able to use the studio’s equipment and facilities to gain hands-on experience with the software and learn how to optimize sound systems for different environments.
The engineers at Konsertsystemer are taking the exams to pass the Level 1 certification, a mark of expertise in using the smaart software and highly valued in the sound industry. The class was a valuable learning experience for the engineers and demonstrated Konsertsystemer’s commitment to providing high-quality sound systems and services to their clients.
Konsertsystemer is a well-known company in the Norwegian sound industry, providing sound systems and services for concerts, events, and festivals. Their expertise ranges from small corporate events to large-scale festivals, and they are known for their commitment to high-quality sound and professional service.
