Smaart Operator Fundamentals Live Online (Level 1)
Smaart Operator Fundamentals Live Online
This is a Level 1 Lab Series, hosted by Rational Acoustics and taught by Jamie Anderson and Michael Lawrence.
Based around the original Smaart Operator: Fundamentals class, this series of online lab sessions offers a unique alternate approach to covering the Fundamentals course material.
Over the course of 3 weeks, students will review assigned videos from the Smaart Operator Fundamentals Online (SOFO) webinar series. A 1-hour introductory session will be held the first Monday of the course, followed by 2-hour in-person live instruction sessions every Friday for the 3-week run of the course, as well as an additional Thursday session on the last week of the course. Each live session will include instruction covering select content from the SOFO videos and the Smaart v8 User Guide, as well as supplemental demonstrations, in-depth discussion and the opportunity for students to ask questions. A companion study guide will be provided with the course including key points, exercises, and quizzes pertaining to each session.
To get the most out of the training, the study guide provides weekly lab exercises for hands-on measurement exercises and operating the software. Although a typical modern sound system can be large and complex, we can represent the basic elements and workflow using a small selection of equipment.
As part of the training we recommend students prepare their own basic lab setup to include a small mixer, a digital signal processor (DSP) and a loudspeaker in addition to a computer running Smaart, an audio interface and a measurement microphone. Please contact us with any questions or additional details on the recommended lab setup. Here is a helpful link to Choosing Gear for your Smaart Measurement System.
Included with the course is a coupon for 1 free attempt at the Smaart Operator Level 1 Certification Exam. Discounts on Smaart software are also available to class attendees.
