Title: Smaart v.7.4 Released
Post by: Karen Anderson on August 27, 2012, 05:02:21 pm
Hey Folks,

Quick FYI to say that Smaart v.7.4 has been released.

This is a major version update with significant feature additions and interface modifications and is recommended (and free) for all registered Smaart v.7 users.

Of special note in v.7.4 is an overhaul of the Impulse Response Mode including a significant user interface update and comprehensive integration of the measurement and analysis capabilities from Smaart AcousticTools.  While earlier releases of Smaart v7 included some AcousticTools features, the v7.4. update completes the integration process with the addition of enhanced versions of all of its intelligibility and acoustic response capabilities, including: T60/RT60, EDT, D/R, Clarity (C10, C35, C50, C80), TLow, TMid, Bass Ratio (TLow/TMid), %ALCons, STI (measured indirectly from impulse response), STIPA and CIS.

Smaart v.7.4 also offers a passel of new usability enhancements such as Peak Holds with either timed or infinite hold capability, Locked Cursors which allows users to snap current peaks with a hotkey or track the highest peak in a trace in real time and Dual Spectrographs in which users can display two spectrograph plots simultaneously.  User-driven features such as Multi-Device Transfer Function Measurements, User-Defined Views and Zooms and Enhanced Trace dB offset have also been included.

A full Release Overview detailing all new features is available at http://www.rationalacoustics.com/pages/Smaartv7_getting_started (http://www.rationalacoustics.com/pages/Smaartv7_getting_started)
