21: Limits (working from home with SoundCheck)

While you are working from home, optimize your SoundCheck sequences by tweaking your limits for optimum quality and yield. Devin Vaillancourt explains the different types of limits available (absolute, floating, aligned, and more), and once you have explored the different types, you can test out different limit configurations using saved data from products that you have already measured.

Limits Tutorial

This series of 3 short videos explains how to set up limits in SoundCheck from basic fixed and floating limits to advanced limits that use recalled curves and values from the memory list.

Limits 1: The Basics
Limits 2: Data
Limits 3: Advanced

19: Exploring Custom Steps (working from home with SoundCheck)

Learn how to level-up your SoundCheck sequence using Custom Steps – LabVIEW VIs that can be used as steps in SoundCheck sequences to implement operations that cannot be done natively in SoundCheck. A selection of custom step templates built into SoundCheck accelerates the development of custom steps with examples that allow you to open and close virtual instruments, control turntables, read/write serial numbers and even open any .exe file such as a Python script. Devin Vaillancourt demonstrates how to use this powerful feature.

18: Displaying multiple data sets on one graph (working from home with SoundCheck)

There are many times when it is desirable to display multiple data sets on one graph – for example, testing multichannel devices, comparing devices, comparing measurements to the fundamental, comparing EQ curves, etc. In this short video, Steve Tatarunis demonstrates how to display multiple curves on one graph, both by simply dragging and dropping and also automatically via a sequence.

17: Predicting Listener Preference Using the Harman Target Curve (working from home with SoundCheck)

In this short video, Cam Ruffle-Deignan walks you through how to predict listener preference based on the Harman Target Curve. This free sequence (which can be downloaded here) can recall previously saved data as well as capture new data, making this a great ‘work from home’ project if you have previously saved measurement data on your headphones.

16: Batch Processing & Analysis (working from home with SoundCheck)

Cam Ruffle-Deignan demonstrates batch processing and analysis – powerful tools that enable groups of waveforms (or other forms of data) to be processed with just one step, either in a sequence or offline.This simplifies the processing of large volumes of data in offline mode, and is useful in multi-channel test system sequences.

15: Data Portability (working from home with SoundCheck)

Devin Vaillancourt demonstrates both manual and automated ways to save data from SoundCheck to be used with other programs including Excel and Matlab. He also shows how to save waveforms as .WAV files which is an important tool for open loop testing.

08: Online Resources (working from home with SoundCheck)

In this video, Mark Latshaw tours you through some of the resources that are available on the Listen website to help you work from home with SoundCheck and to improve your audio testing knowledge in general, including instructional videos, technical papers, manuals and the support knowledgebase.

07: Upgrading to SC18 (working from home with SoundCheck)

Les Quindipan demonstrates how easy it is to upgrade to SoundCheck version 18. If you have been putting off upgrading because you haven’t had time, then use that WFH time to make it happen! Even if you are upgrading from a really early version (prior to V13) this video makes it simple.
