What is new in Smaart v8.5

IR Mode Enhancements

o IR Data Bar – mimics RT Mode Data Bar in form and function (Trace Info, Trace Color, nested folders, etc)
o Measure, view, and compare multiple IR measurements in the same plot
o IR Mode Plot Legend with “Sync Ld” function
o Decay Markers stored in Wave file – easily manipulate marker positions and re-save
o Improved STI calculations
o “All Bands” dialog now shows all bands by default, instead of just some bands
o New controls for manipulating IR Spectrograph
o Separate Command Bars for RT and IR Modes
o User-defined Filter option for IR Mode
o Improved IR highpass filter and added lowpass filter (access from IR Options)
o Banding can now be applied to IR Frequency and IR Spectrograph Plots – enable option from IR Options
o IR “Peak to Delay” now uses current filter (previously always used Broadband data’s peak)
o IR Options reworked to fit new controls
o IR Mode Plots now have independent Y axis panning
o Added Option to change IR Mode frequency-domain plot scales
o All Bands window position is now persistent
o Improved IR saddle point calculation

Sound Level Measurement Enhancements

o SPL History plot is now a drag-and-drop target for log files
o PDF SPL Reports – Generate Report now creates color PDFs
o Added “C-A” option for Leq measurements to Advanced Meter Config
o Alarm indicators are now always shown in SPL History, even if relevant metrics are hidden
o Alarm level lines are now hidden if no associated metric is shown in SPL History plot
o Added Alarm indicator hover text that shows the metric and timestamp
o “Exposure N” and “Exposure O” now calculate by default
o Added differential Exposure display below SPL History graph
o Logger now automatically starts a new log file after log file is 24 hours long
o If all calibrated inputs/devices are removed while logging is enabled, logging now stops
o Added right-click menu for opening file location to SPL log file path field in SPL History component
o Option to open email client at attach SPL Report after generating
o Added “No logging inputs available” to web browser page if nothing is available

And more

• Added new MTW+ option for Transfer Function measurements
• Added support for importing Transfer Function data from Meyer Sound SIM®1 3 .bin files via Import ASCII
• Import ASCII now supports Coherence data
• API – Added generic command mechanism for passing keypresses (hotkeys) to Smaart via the API
• Live IR is now always calculated even if the LIR plot is not visible
• Improved “Unwrap Phase” – now unwraps from specified frequency center, control located in the Phase plot
• Pseudorandom Noise now has a static seed (no longer re-seeded every time the Generator is started)
• Windows users – launching Smaart while it’s already open now calls the program to the top of the app stack
• Option to stop signal generator immediately after Capture/Capture All/Recapture/IR Capture
• Advanced Delay Finder – octave-filtered delay measurement with user-adjustable center frequency
• Single “Import Trace” function for importing all measurement types
• Trace Colorizer for assigning new random color to a selection of traces
• “Use Comma as Decimal Mark in Logs” setting now applies to all exported text files
• Quick access to Trace Info – press Enter key when trace is selected, Esc closes dialog
• Save As via Data Library now allows you to rename the trace (instead of only choosing a new directory)
• “New Tab” hotkey is now Alt+Shift+T
• “Gain Reporter” controls are now conditionally shown, only if Smaart I-O is connected
• “G” hotkey now works when Sig Gen Options is open
• Removed resize capability for Trace Info dialog

• Numerous bug fixes, including:

  • Fixed bug where SPL Alarms were no longer presenting in the web viewer
  • Fixed a bug where the legacy API was returning the wrong value when Smoothing was set to None
  • Fixed a bug where log files would include Max Level resets that occurred prior to the start of logging
  • Fixed a bug where Clips/Leq Resets were added to the beginning of a log file at the time that they occurred, even if they occurred before logging began
  • Fixed a bug where the Measurement Config (hammer/wrench) button didn’t work in IR Mode if there were no TF pairs configured
  • Fixed a bug where Coherence Blanking was using non-squared data even if the “Squared Coh” option was enabled
  • Fixed a bug where SPL History and PDF Report graphs didn’t match during Alarm events
  • Fixed a bug where TF averages using the Power option wouldn’t normalize properly if some of the contributing traces had data below the Mag Threshold level
  • Fixed a bug where the “Calibration Progress” dialog was re-sampling the “Measured Level” if the Offset field was edited
  • Fixes various crashes related to changing the sampling rate

Smaart System Requirements

Minimum Req.WindowsmacOS (64-bit only)
OS VersionWindows 7 SP1OSX 10.11 (El Capitan)
Processor / CPU2 GHz Dual-Core2 GHz Dual-Core
Memory / RAM2GB2GB

Display1024 x 7681024 x 768
SoundCompatible ASIO® or WAV/WDM driversCompatible Core Audio drivers

These are the absolute minimum requirements for Smaart to operate. A more powerful setup may be required if you plan on taking more intensive measurements, using multiple windows, running a large amount of simultaneous transfer function measurements, etc.

*Important: Intel Graphics on Windows (April 2021):
We’ve detected some problems with Smaart crashing while the program is being resized on laptops running Intel HD/UHD 600 on-board graphics (and likely any other Intel series chips that use the same driver). Our recommendation is to avoid Windows machines running only Intel on-board graphics whenever possible, as the crash does not occur with AMD and NVidia graphics cards.

Additionally, utilizing a dedicated graphics processor (AMD/Nvidia) on your machine has many benefits, including ensuring that those resources are free for your CPU to use for calculations in Smaart and other programs, resulting in better performance overall. 

*Important: Lenovo Laptops (December 2019):
While we do not make any recommendations for hardware, a problem has surfaced with a certain series of Lenovo laptops with an unknown hardware limitation or configuration that results in problems with Smaart’s licensing. If you are in the market for a laptop, we highly advise not using the now-discontinued Lenovo ideapad Flex 4 or Yoga 500 series for Smaart.
