Main Screen

The main screen shows the live feed of each module.

  • Real Time Analyzer
  • dB Meter
  • Augmented Reality Spatial Module
  • Parametric EQ (PEQ) — available through in-app-purchase


Real Time Analyzer

  • The Real Time Analyzer displays the live XY plot for dB level vs. frequency.
  • The Gear Menu in the upper right corner allows you to choose block size, spectral weighting, and display colors for the graph.
    • First, the Block Size will default to 4096, but can be adjusted from 256 to 16384. This value is determining how large of a buffer is allowed to build up before being processed. The larger the buffer, the more accurate the values will be. However, the larger the buffer, the more the device has to work. If you experience trouble processing on your device, try decreasing the Block Size. If you want more detail, increase the block size.
    • Next is Spectral Weighting. By clicking the drop–down menu, you can choose between Flat, A, B, and C weightings.
    • The SPL or DBFS drop–down menu gives you the option of displaying SPL or dBFS information. If you want to see the digital value from 0 that the device is receiving, select dBFS, otherwise, keep it on SPL to know how loud your environment is.
    • The Spectrum Color drop–down menu lets you choose if you want the RTA to show full spectrum color across the frequency range or only blue.

dB Meter

  • The upper left of the cube shows the Max value based on the greatest dB value heard until the Reset button is pressed. You can choose to display Max–Peak or Max–Average in the Peak/RMS drop–down menu.
  • The upper right of the cube displays the Average sound level over the last second, minute, or 5 minutes depending on the value selected.
  • The bottom section is the Peak value.
  • In the Gear Menu, there are a few options.
    • First, the processing Block Size will default to 4096, but can be adjusted from 256 to 16384. This value is determining how large of a buffer is allowed to build up before being processed. The larger the buffer, the more accurate the values will be. However, the larger the buffer, the more the device has to work. If you experience trouble processing on your device, try decreasing the Block Size. If you want more detail, increase the block size.
    • Next is Spectral Weighting. By clicking the drop–down menu, you can choose between Flat, A, B, and C weightings.
    • The SPL or DBFS drop–down menu gives you the option of displaying SPL or dBFS information. If you want to see the digital value from 0 that the device is receiving, select dBFS, otherwise, keep it on SPL to know how loud your environment is.
    • You can also select between Fast or Slow time weightings to the left of the cube.

Augmented Reality Spatial Module

  • In the Spatial module, you can use the advanced augmented reality technology to see spatial acoustic information.
  • The Volume Variance feature displays the volume over the audience between the main speakers and your device.
  • The Delay Calc feature uses speaker tags to quickly calculate the delay timing needed for setting up your delay stacks. The Delay Calc view shows the distance between the tags and the time that sound will take to travel between them. You can input this value into your system and then adjust the value further according to the Haas effect range for your specific venue.
