Video Script: Customizing Color Palettes in SoundCheck

In SC, you can customize your display background and the color palette under Edit > Preferences > Display. You can check the box to display an image and change the background color of the main screen. You may click on the folder icon to upload another image file and have it either centered, tiled, or stretched. In the graph palette section, you can customize the colors of curves and waveforms viewed from the memory list window. If you are a fan of dark mode, you might want to select “black” as your background color. Click “OK” to apply the changes when finished. You can also make quick color changes in the display windows. Click on a specific curve and go to “Color” to change the curve color. You can change the colors of the background, X and Y grid lines by right-clicking on the display window and going to “Preferences”. If you are dealing with multiple curves and the legend is covering a lot of screen space in the display, you might want to switch your position to the right. Click “OK” to apply the changes.

SoundCheck® 22 offers new features for both R&D and Production, as well as usability upgrades including:

  • Python Custom Step (optional module #2042): The optional Python custom step module (part #2042) enables custom Python functions to be called from a SoundCheck sequence. This makes it easy to pass data and variables between SoundCheck and other devices or programs with no need for LabVIEW programming.
  • Crest Factor Analysis: Distortion options now include crest factor analysis,  a technique that measures peak-to-RMS ratio to evaluate impulsive distortion and analyze the dynamic range of real signals. It complements SoundCheck’s unique enhanced Loose Particle algorithm for transient distortion measurement.
  • Sequence Versioning: Sequence versioning makes it easy to track changes made to a sequence to ensure that colleagues and contract manufacturers are using the correct version.
  • New Statistics Module: SoundCheck’s statistics module is completely overhauled to make it more powerful and intuitive. Changes include a new layout, expanded drag and drop functionality, enhanced searching and filtering, and the ability to reset statistics during a sequence.
  • Other Upgrades: Additional enhancements include new post-processing tools, additional metadata options, an upgraded signal generator and multimeter, and additional flexibility and capabilities for the multi-instrument (RTA/FFT)
  • Apple Silicon Support: SoundCheck displays significant speed and performance benefits on Apple computers with M processors. Step and sequence editing, in particular, are considerably faster.
