Video Script: Customized Units for Specific Applications

Did you know that in Soundcheck, you can create your own custom units? Although SoundCheck contains many default units for sound, electrical and vibration measurements, you can also customize them for a specific application.

For example, let’s say you want to use a laser vibrometer that measures displacement to measure loudspeaker cone excursion. Simply go into the Calibration Editor, Add a new Input Calibrated Device, then under Sensitivity, click on the Unit button and enter your new unit and dB reference, e.g. meters and dB Ref: 1. Your multimeter and y-axis on your graphs will now read displacement in meters.

Units can also be edited in the sequence in either the analysis or post-processing step by selecting the “Unit” button.

The new units chosen are applied to  the data generated by that step, and preserved for the remainder of the sequence run.

Similarly, custom units can also be applied to curves in the Memory List items by right-clicking and selecting units.For example, if you want to convert dBSPL to dBPa, just change your dB Ref from 20uPa to 1Pa.

This flexibility lets you easily customize SoundCheck for your specific application!

Video Script: Use Your Own Customized Color Scheme

Did you know in SoundCheck you can customize desktop settings, curve colors and graph colors, and save any number of color palettes and configurations for frequent use?

 You can change the background color of SoundCheck, display an image, or no image at all

The color palette section allows you to define 8 colors. When you have your setup configured to use this palette, it will always use color 1 for the first curve, color 2 for the second and so on. You can configure and save multiple palettes. This is useful,  for example, if you sometimes want graphs configured in color for on-screen viewing or black and white for printing reports.

These palettes can be manually applied, or set as defaults. Within a test sequence, you also have complete control over graph and line colors.

You can also customize the background color of your graphs  –  black, white, or whatever else you like, and change the appearance of the gridlines.

Your configurations can easily be shared with your co-workers, by email or via a shared directory.
