Smaart® v8.4 Update Released

Woodstock, CT November 19, 2019 – Rational Acoustics LLC announces 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 already powerful SPL monitoring capability of Smaart v8 – making v8.4 a full-featured SPL monitoring solution in addition to its already industry-leading 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 robust 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.

The Smaart v8.4 Release Overview, detailing a complete list of the new and improved features in Smaart v8.4 (including bug fixes) as well as instructions for updating, can be found in the support section of the Rational Acoustics website. Users can also access Smaart v8.4’s internal Help Files to find a full revision history, detailed function descriptions, and a full listing of all accelerator (hot) keys.
