Fall 2015 SoundCheck and Electroacoustic Training Dates Announced

trainingWe are excited to be offering training on both East and West coasts this Fall.

Classes will be held in our Boston offices on September 21-23, and in the San Jose area on Oct 5-7. Both sessions will follow the same format, beginning with a 1-day course on electroacoustics testing, presented by Chris Struck of CJS Labs. In this useful class you will learn about the theory behind your audio measurements. The content will cover sound level measurement, psychoacoustics, electroacoustics, soundfields in real rooms, frequency responses, test signals and more. It is ideal for those new to the industry or anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of the measurement principles behind their acoustic tests.

The 2nd and 3rd day will be our 2 day SoundCheck training class. This 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. We are working on finalizing venues, but please put the dates in your diary, and we’ll have more information soon.
San Jose: Plaza Suites, Santa Clara.

Boston: Listen Offices. 580 Harrison Ave Ste 3W, Boston, MA 02118.


Advanced SoundCheck Training – June 1, 2015

We are excited to announce a 1-day SoundCheck® Advanced Training Seminar on Monday, June 1st 2015.

This new training class covers a combination of advanced electroacoustics education and SoundCheck topics that are beyond the scope of our basic 2-day training course. It is of broad interest to most testing applications, although the open loop testing is particularly relevant to smartphone, tablet and other devices which do not have an audio path between test system and device.

In celebration of our (and SoundCheck’s) 20th anniversary this year, we are offering this course at 1995 prices – just $199!

Places are limited, so sign up early.

SoundCheck and Electroacoustic Training Oct 2014

trainingWe have a great training line-up in Santa Clara on October 6-8, 2014! Our popular 2-day SoundCheck training course (Oct 7-8) is partnered with a one-day ‘Introduction to Electroacoustics’ course (Oct 6), taught by Chris Struck. Attendees may attend all 3 days, or just the electroacoustics or SoundCheck training.

The 2 day SoundCheck course covers all aspects of using the SoundCheck software from setup and calibration through to writing sequences and understanding the software’s advanced options.

The electroacoustic course focuses on the fundamentals of electroacoustic measurements, including principles of acoustics, instrumentation, and data interpretation as well as practical information on how to perform appropriate tests.
