100 Things #4: Modular Audio Test System Evolves With Your Needs

SoundCheck has always been a fully modular audio test system – both software and hardware. This means your test system can be specified and configured for your exact requirements and budget. It’s also future-proofed, as you can add modules at any time if your measurement needs expand, usually at fairly minimal cost. In this short video, we explain how this works.

Video Script: Modular Audio Test System Evolves With Your Needs

Since its inception in 1995,, SoundCheck has always been a fully modular audio test system – both software and hardware. This means your test system can be spec’d and configured for your exact requirements and budget. It’s also future-proofed, as you can add modules at any time if your measurement needs expand, usually at fairly minimal cost.

Let’s take a look at how this flexibility works.

SoundCheck software is available in 4 different base packages, each of which has a pre-configured set of modules which define the stimulus, analysis and post-processing capabilities of your software. Additional modules can be purchased with any base package, either at the time of sale or at a later date, to expand the functionality. You can check the configuration of your system at any time within SoundCheck via Optional Modules in the Help menu.

Hardware is similarly modular. SoundCheck works with any soundcard or audio interface, and in addition to our own single and multi-channel interfaces, we recommend and supply a selection of suitable 3rd party products. Bluetooth and MEMS interfaces are sold separately for easy upgradability, and SoundCheck is compatible with audio test accessories from pretty much any vendor.

This flexibility makes it really easy to standardize on SoundCheck company-wide, even in large organizations across R&D and production. With just one system for the whole company to be familiar with, learning curves and ramp-up times are minimized, yet every test system is optimized for budget and performance.

Upgrading your system in the future is simple. Software modules are shipped electronically and usually available same day, and new hardware is easily substituted and configured.

We have many systems out there in the field that were purchased 10 or even 20 years ago as basic 2-channel speaker test systems that now handle multiple channels, bluetooth tests and advanced analyses for testing smart devices!
