Smaart v.7 released

After 2 years of development, over 150,000 lines of code and gallons of blood, sweat and tears we are happy to announce that Smaart v.7 is now ready for initial release!

Smaart v.7 is available for online purchase immediately .  You can also download a 30 Day Demoof Smaart v.7 (please be sure to read the “ReadMe” doc on the demo download page).

Users can purchase new licenses or upgrade licenses from Smaart versions 4, 5 or 6.   If you are upgrading from a previous version of Smaart, be sure to ahve your previous version license number handy. As a reminder, Smaart v.6 licenses MUST be registered at prior to upgrading to v.7.  (if you registered your license at, your license and account info has been transferred over to and you should be able to log in with the same e-mail address and password that you used to initially register your license).

Upgrading online is the quickest and most efficient method of upgrading.  However, we do understand taht there are some users who cannot do an online purchase.  If you must pruchase a license (either upgrade or new) offline you can do so by contacting us direclyt at +1-860-928-7828 or  International users can purchase licenses directly from your local Rational Acoustics distributor.

Hard copy CD packages of Smaart v.7 (new licenses only) will be available for purchase via our online web store in approximately 2 weeks.  Please check with your local distributor for availability of hard copy CD packages.

If you purchased Smaart v.6 after June 1, 2009, you are entitled to a free upgrade to Smaart v.7.  To claim your free upgrade, please go to the online purchase page and click on “Upgrade License”.  Enter your v.6 license number and it will take you to an order confirmation page with a zero-dollar ($0) transaction (don’t worry, even though it asks for “billing info”, you won’t be asked for any credit card info..).    Once you have completed your order, an e-mail with your new v.7 license and installer links for both Mac and Windows will be sent to you.

The feature set in this v.7.0 release of Smaart represents what we feel to be the minimum for initial release.  However this is nowhere near the end of Smaart v.7 development.  “After dot” releases with new features and updates will continue to be released on a regular basis throughout the coming weeks, months and years.  All new releases and updates will be available to Smaart v.7 users through their license accounts at  We have a lot planned for this new Smaart platform – it was built to do some amazing things. So stay tuned !

We appreciate everyone’s contintued support of Smaart and your patience while we created a product that we are proud to bring to market.  We truly could not have done it without you !
