USB Interface for Audio Tools (Studio Six)
« on: April 02, 2020, 03:46:00 pm »

I've been using SMAART for quite some time but I just recently purchased Audio Tools for iOS. I was wondering if I can use my SMAART I-O interface (It's a SMAART branded box, but i believe it's been discontinued) or am I forced to purchase the interface that Studio Six sells?

A SMAART interface for an iPad with a lighting connector

Hey Scott, I probably wasn't clear with my original post. I'm currently using SMAART V8 on my Mac. This is the interface I own: https://www.rationalacoustics.com/smaart/smaart-i-o/ 

I was wondering if I could use this interface with my iPad or iPhone with lighting connector. I guess the only way to confirm is to buy the $30 Lightning to USB (Camera Connector) and try it out. I'm just trying to see if there's a way to use the transfer function of the Audio Tools app without buying their $500 interface.

I will still use my Mac and the full version of SMAART when I need to, but I was hoping to find a compact portable USB interface to use with Audio Tools for times when I don't want to haul out the full size measurement rig.

I have had really good luck with the iTest Mic with the built in charging and output interface too.  It's not cheap but super convenient.  I have version 1

That looks like a great option, I don't know how I missed it the first time I looked on their site. It's a little more than I was hoping to spend, but this is would make a pocket sized measurement rig if I used it with my iPhone. The only drawback is I don't see a way to take external audio as a reference, so I couldn't use it for realtime monitoring of live shows. But that's what the full rig on the Mac is for I guess.

The itestmic2 has an 1/8 out at the base of the mic.

I use it with an iPad pro and love it.  We did a phase magnitude trace on Debbie's Danley system it was the flatest phase response I have ever seen on an untuned system and the subs were clustered at the center of the stage and the SM80's were on stands. 


It's super handy and you can get fast with it and do a rough tune in minutes.

Not that it moves the needle too much but this came in an email recently...

I got that email too, but I think I'll still go with the USB mic they sell. Thanks for posting it though.
