Sound System Alignment
System Alignment is a process of optimizing the response of a sound system so that it is the most useful that it can be for amplification of virtually any source. The greatest advances in sound system operation are from microphone sources as we can adjust for maximum intelligibility, gain before feedback, and the most even coverage at a venue. The limits are certainly the signal processing amplifiers, and speakers. It is not possible to make a sound system do something that it is not designed to do or that exceeds its operating parameters, but we can make what is contained within a system work the best it possibly can. Once complete a system can be much easier for any operator, especially novice engineers.
Many individuals whether they are sound engineers or not, operating or listening to the system, would immediately notice the greatly improved tonal balance (Equalization) with fairly uncolored vocals that are very clear. We can also drive the overall tonal balance of a system to more suit the venue, for example, by reducing low frequency buildup (Boominess) that reduce the ability to understand words that are spoken or lyrics that are sung (Intelligibility) or by reducing harshness caused by too much upper midrange or high frequency energy being delivered (Horn Pattern Overlap). If available, we also try to apply some limiters for some additional system protection. All of this is limited by the available System signal processing, amplifiers, and speakers. Our alignment process can make your Sound System much easier for all to use.
For our system alignment services we utilize an industry standard measurement tool SMAARTLIVE as well as other proprietary and proven methods. SMAARTLIVE is Dual FFT software hardware measurement system which excels over other methods with its ability to provide consistent measurements and have a great deal of immunity from external noise or interference.
