[NAMM] PreSonus Mixers to Include Smaart
PreSonus has begun incorporating Smaart Measurement Technology into the software used to control its StudioLive digital mixers.
Smaart is described not as a single technology but an evolved collection of audio measurement tools and techniques.
Using Smaart technology, users can use the StudioLive mixer's EQ to improve the sound of their P.A. system. With Smaart-equipped VSL, users can view the spectral content of their mix, and make changes. Clicking on the Graphic Equalizer button in Universal Control 1.6, Smaart Spectra's Real Time Analyzer activates Spectrograph's algorithms, displaying the spectral content of whatever is routed though a particular graphic EQ. Users can activate a Real Time Analyzer, like the plug-in used in PreSonus' Studio One 2.
The Smaart Spectra Spectrograph display is designed to help identify bad feedback frequencies, enabling less experienced users to tune their P.A. speakers to the room. Smaart Spectra graphs a continuous series of spectrum measurements, showing frequency on one axis, time on another, and level indicated by colors - to identify feedback frequencies, which can be easily addressed using StudioLive GEQs.
