Free Upgrade to 8 Channel System With AmpConnect 621 Purchase

When you purchase our AmpConnect 621 multichannel audio interface, we’ll upgrade your SoundCheck system to 8 channels at no additional cost – that’s a saving of up to $1,500. This up-levels your system to a 6-in, 2-out multichannel system ideal for measuring mic arrays, automotive audio, noise canceling headphones and more. Used with the multichannel RTA in SoundCheck 20, you can view multiple signal paths simultaneously as well as calculate differences, averages and more in real time.

And if you don’t have a SoundCheck system yet, we’ve also got you covered ! We’ll discount any 8-channel software package by 25% when you purchase SoundCheck and AmpConnect 621 together.

Note: offers cannot be combined. Discounted pricing applies to a maximum of 5 systems. SoundCheck 20 is recommended for AmpConnect 621 control and full Multi-RTA functionality.

Huge Discounts on SoundCheck 18 Upgrades

For a limited time we are offering deep discounts on a system upgrade to enable you to get up to date with the latest version of SoundCheck. The upgrade offer is a simple flat rate: $3,950 for owners of SoundCheck 12 or 13, $3,250 for owners of version 14, $2,500 for owners of versions 15 through 16, and $1,395 for owners of version 17. All the modules on your present system will be included.

SoundCheckTM 18’s feature-packed release offers many features to simplify multi-channel and voice controlled testing, as well as many usability upgrades including:

  • Automation Enhancements: Test configuration data can now be passed into SoundCheck from external programs using TCP/IP commands. By externally storing parameters such as limits, test levels, and test signals, a single sequence can be used for multiple products, simplifying the number of sequences that a large organi­zation needs to maintain, and reducing test configuration time.
  • Plug’n’play hardware setup: Listen and Portland Tool & Die Hard­ware now auto-configure parameters such as sampling rate and calibration values, and create input and output signal paths, making setup faster.
  • Simplified Gain Control Selection: auto read and auto range gain settings are now easily accessible as drop-down options in the gain menu in the acquisition step editor, and auto-read is available in virtual instruments. This makes it much faster to make quick gain adjustments while developing sequences.
  • Improved sampling rate management: Improved communication with audio interfaces that have a sampling-rate dependent latency enables you to now specify the latencies for various sampling rates, either by entering them manually or importing from a file, and SoundCheck will automatically default to these. Sampling rate can also now be set in the stimulus editor.
  • MEMS interface control: Portland Tool & Die MEMS microphone interfaces can now be fully controlled from within SoundCheck for faster measurement setup and greater measurement reliability as the device settings can be built into the test sequence.
  • TEDS Support: When used with compatible Listen hardware, SoundCheck will automatically identify, configure and calibrate TEDS microphones and accelerometers, saving time on initial hardware setup and whenever hardware is changed.
  • WASAPI driver support in Windows 10 for improved multichannel capabilities.

SoundCheck 17 Discounted Upgrade Pricing

For a limited time we are offering deep discounts on a system upgrade to enable you to get up to date with the latest version of SoundCheck. The upgrade offer is a simple flat rate: $3,950 for owners of SoundCheck 11 or 12, $3,250 for owners of version 13, $2,500 for owners of versions 14 through 15, and $1,395 for owners of version 16. All the modules on your present system will be included.

SoundCheckTM 17’s feature-packed release offers many features to simplify multi-channel and voice controlled testing, as well as many usability upgrades including:

  • Improved color pallets for ultimate flexibility in defining colors for backgrounds, grids, cursors and graph lines.
  • Save to MATLAB –  All data including memory list curves and Soundmap (time frequency analysis) data can now be saved to MATLAB for additional processing. Data is saved as a standard MAT file and can be manually or automatically saved in this format.
  • A new Level & Cross-Correlation Trigger (requires optional module 2006 – Time Selective Response) for improved performance for open loop measurements
  • An enhanced database (optional module) is now 4x faster and 3x more space-efficient than previous versions, making it an extremely powerful data management tool for customers testing modern audio products with multiple transducers (microphone arrays, multiple speakers, etc.), as these frequently generate large volumes of data.
  • SoundCheck can now read multichannel WAV files directly from the memory list, signal generator and stimulus steps, simplifying the testing of multichannel devices such as microphone or speaker arrays
  • SoundCheck can now control multiple DC Connects which can be configured independently
  • A new Average Curve/WFM post processing function allows you to obtain the average curve (or waveform) of a selected group of data in the Memory List.
  • SoundCheck now supports the new APTX HD codec for high resolution Bluetooth testing
  • A 64 bit demo / data viewer replaces the 32 bit demo version. When the software key is not installed, previously measured data can still be recalled and viewed.
  • CSV formatted files can be recalled in addition to TXT files.

Call your sales engineer today to receive a quote for upgrading all your SoundCheck systems. These discounted rates have been extended until June 7th, 2019 but will not be available after that, so please get your order in soon!
