official release of Smaart v.7 Di

We are pleased to announce the official release of Smaart v.7 Di (Dual-channel Interface)!

Smaart v.7 Di is a streamlined, two-channel version of the standard Smaart v.7 analysis software.v7Di Screen Shot 1.6

The primary focus of the Smaart v.7 Di platform is to offer a simplified version of the Smaart v.7 program; one that is significantly easier to configure and operate, without sacrificing the measurement power of our current Spectrum and Transfer Function measurement engines.

Smaart v.7 Di’s fixed, two channel architecture provides a nimble, quickly adaptable measurement environment, with all critical configuration and control parameters accessible from a single intuitive UI (user interface); perfect for quick and precise measurements without the demands of the standard version’s multi-measurement, multi-mode complexity.

Smaart v.7 Di’s Spectrum and Transfer Function engines have the same power and capabilities as those in the standard version. However, in the spirit of simplicity, v.7 Di does not include a separate Impulse Response (IR) Mode. Instead, all time domain measurement capabilities in v.7 Di reside in the Live IR display of the TF measurement.

In order to maintain easy portability and interoperability between versions, both versions of Smaart use the same RTA and TF data formats. Smaart v.7 and Smaart v.7 Di share the same control and command structure (view control, zooms, hot-keys, data capture commands, etc.), so moving back and forth between versions does not require learning a whole new control and command paradigm.

As an added bonus, the Smaart I-O’s gain and phantom power controls are integrated directly into the Smaart v.7 Di interface; making a “Smaart v.7 Di + Smaart I-O” combo an excellent package for users who want the most elegant, and streamlined, set-up possible.

30 Day Demo

There is a 30 Day Demo of Smaart v.7 Di available here. You can download the Demo and evaluate the program free of charge for 30 days. Please note: for security reasons the Demo will have some functionality disabled. This should not interfere with your ability to use or evaluate Smaart v.7 Di but it will be very important for you to read the “ReadMe” document that will be included with the Demo for more information about the disabled features. Also, the Smaart v.7 Di Demo CANNOT be renewed and cannot be turned into a licensed version of v.7 Di. It will simply expire and cease to function after 30 days. You will need a completely different installer for the licensed version.

Smaart v.7 Di Training Classes

We are in the process of developing a one-day Smaart v.7 Di Training Class which will be specific to the Smaart v.7 Di platform. We will have full information about class curriculum, pricing & initial dates & locations in the next Rational Report. (If you’re not already subscribed to our mailing list, do so here!)
