SoundCheck Training Chicago, IL, May 17-18, 2016

Acoustic Test lab at Listen 2We are holding our popular 2- day SoundCheck training class on May 17-18th in Elgin, IL (just outside Chicago).

SoundCheck Training is designed for engineers and technicians who are responsible for the measurement and analysis of the acoustical performance of electroacoustic products and audio electronics either in R&D or Production. Current SoundCheck customers and individuals interested in thoroughly evaluating SoundCheck as an audio test platform are encouraged to attend. This intensive, “hands-on” course will enable you to utilize the full functionality of SoundCheck and provide you the necessary tools to efficiently create audio and electroacoustic tests.

The class covers all the major features of SoundCheck version 14, including writing sequences, test signals, analysis, distortion measurements and more. The class is a combination of presentations interspersed with hands-on exercises to ensure that you are comfortable with all the concepts and methods taught before you leave the classroom. Although no previous SoundCheck experience is assumed, the course still offers plenty to users familiar with writing basic sequences. Although the SoundCheck training is intended as a 2-day program, it is possible to attend just one day of the training.
