System analysis made easy: Smaart v8 release date announced8 March 2016
The latest version of Rational Acoustics’ Smaart analyser will be released on 15 March 2016.
According to the company Smaart v8 offers greatly expanded control of the software environment while simultaneously providing easier and more streamlined measurement configuration, control and data handling.
“Since the release of Smaart v.7 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 multi-window capability, broadband metering for all input devices and smaart-to-smaart api remote control.
For the first 90 days after release, new licenses of Smaart v8 will be available for the existing Smaart v.7 price and special early-adopter discounts are available for upgrades from Smaart v.5, v.6, v.7 and v.7 Di. Additionally, anyone who purchased Smaart v.7 after 31 December 2015 will receive a free upgrade to Smaart v8 upon its release.
