External Control of SoundCheck Seminar

SoundCheck has led the way in production line audio measurement for over 25 years with its sophisticated suite of audio measurement algorithms that offer precise measurement, fast throughput, excellent noise immunity, and world-class reliability. However, many audio manufacturing factories are moving towards large, highly customized, integrated test configurations to evaluate products, not only for audio integrity, but often video, visual and other performance defects. This seminar explains how to bring the advantages of SoundCheck into your automated test environment using any programming language compatible with TCP/IP  including C, C+, Python, LabVIEW and more.

We will run through several demonstrations of SoundCheck integration including:

  • Enabling TCP-IP in SoundCheck, and an overview of commands
  • Using external control to open up and run a SoundCheck sequence using a python script, and returning data for use in any application 
  • Changing test parameters via external control, so that test procedures can be simplified by adapting test conditions on the fly for different products
  • Loading, playing and controlling volume of  a test signal on a DUT  using a custom step in a SoundCheck sequence. 
  • Using external control to automatically equalize wave files loaded into SoundCheck via TCP/IP 
  • Using MATLAB with SoundCheck.

Measuring Loudspeaker Maximum Linear Sound Levels Using Noise to the AES75-2022 Standard

The AES75-2022 standard details a procedure for measuring maximum linear sound levels of a loudspeaker system or driver using a test signal called M-Noise. This is a complex procedure with many repetitive steps, which makes it time consuming to implement manually. This sequence automates the entire process, accelerating test time, minimizing operator intervention, and ensuring accurate and objective test results.


Automotive Audio Testing Seminar

July 21st, 2022. 9.00am and 2.00pm Eastern US time (6.00am and 11.00am West Coast time)
July 27th, 10.00am China time

In this practical online seminar, Steve Temme will demonstrate in-car measurement of frequency response, Max SPL, and Buzz, Squeak and Rattle using a Bluetooth connection. He will discuss considerations such as physical setup, infotainment system controls and the measurement parameters. Steve and his colleagues will then discuss connectivity for automotive testing, explaining and demonstrating the various connectivity options including USB drive, Bluetooth and A2B bus. Finally, we’ll take a look at some of the other audio measurements that you can make using SoundCheck, for example active noise cancellation and voice assistance readiness. 

在这个实用的网络研讨会中,Steve Temme 将演示如何使用蓝牙连接进行车内测量,以测量频率响应、最大 SPL 以及异常音。 他将讨论物理设置、信息娱乐系统控制和测量参数等考虑因素。 然后,Steve和他的同事将讨论汽车测试的连接性,解释和演示各种连接选项,包括 USB 驱动器、蓝牙和A2B 总线。 最后,我们将看看其他您可以透过SoundCheck进行的音频测量,例如主动降噪以及voice assistance readiness测量。

Production Testing Seminar

March 10th, 2022. 9.00am and 2.00pm Eastern US time (6.00am and 11.00am West Coast time)

In this short seminar, Les Quindipan explores the use of SoundCheck for end-of-line production testing. He discusses typical test configurations and the type of measurements that can be made, how to set pass/fail limits and how to optimize tests for high throughput.

He will also explain how SoundCheck is easily scaled for high volume production testing, with such features as external control via another program and auto-saving data to databases, and how SoundCheck’s capabilities are easily expanded through the use of custom steps to control all types of devices and test fixtures.

This seminar will be of interest to anyone considering a production line implementation of SoundCheck, or curious as to how to transition R&D measurements to fast and effective end-of-line test.
