The huge range of available computers, microphones and audio interfaces available on the market today can make buying gear for your measurement rig a daunting task. To help Smaart users navigate this process, we have created the Smaart Gear Choices: Guide to Choosing Gear for Your Smaart Measurement Rig.
Smaart can be used with a wide variety of hardware options to suit a range of measurement applications. There is no one-size-fits-all Smaart rig – each user must configure a system that suits their individual needs and budget.
At its core, a complete Smaart measurement system consists of three main components:
- Host Computer (Signal Processing)
- Audio Interface (Signal Acquisition)
- Measurement Microphone(s) – (Acoustical Probe)
The Smaart Gear Choices guide explores practical and application considerations for each of the 3 main Smaart system components above. For each of these components, what you need is a function of how you use (or intend to use) Smaart. Does the rig need to be rugged and quickly deployable for touring, or will it sit on a workbench? Does the hardware need to be rack mountable, or fit in a backpack? Giving some thought to your needs and priorities ahead of time makes for wise gear investments and results in you having the right tools for the job.
