Rational Acoustics has announced that Smaart v8 will be released on March 15th. The update offers better control of the software environment while making the measurement configuration, control, and data handling processes easier. Many regard Smaart as the industry standard for acoustic test and measurement software.

“Since the release of Smaart v7 in 2010 we have learned a tremendous amount about what features are important to users in a multi-measurement capable environment, and how they integrate Smaart into the workflow of their daily audio engineering tasks.” says Jamie Anderson, Rational Acoustics CEO. “As an industry, professional audio has fully embraced analysers as part of the work process and is continually developing new, better and often unforeseen ways to implement them. With Smaart v8, we are breaking out of the single-window, fixed-GUI world to allow users significantly increased control over their software environment. Users will be much better able to adapt and expand Smaart to match their specific applications.”

Key new features include:

  • Easier, More Intuitive Measurement Configuration
  • New Tab-Based Interface
  • Multi-Window Capability
  • Hide/Show Interface Control Bars
  • Touchscreen-Friendly User-Configurable command buttons
  • Broadband Metering for all input devices
  • Integrated Control for the Smaart I-O
  • Smaart-to-Smaart API Remote Control
  • Better performance on the latest operating systems
