March Meeting Notice
Audio Band Measurements
Presented By
Mark DeArman and Ryan McCauley
Cascade Acoustic Research

Wednesday, March 25, 7:30pm
Shoreline Community College, Room 818 (music building)
Directions to Shoreline CC

Acoustic test and measurement is a very broad subject with many specialized sub-fields. It is impossible to cover every aspect of this broad subject in one two hour talk. In past presentations on the subject, a lot of time has been spent talking about the basics of digital signal processing. As of 2015, there are many excellent classes on digital signal processing theory available online, even a few of which that are specifically tailored to audio signal processing.

Our presentation will cover specifics on how a measurement system actually works, and how to use it properly and productively in a number of situations applicable to Pro-Audio. We will show slides covering basic outlines of the theory along with real hands on demonstrations using a number of different types of measurement systems. We will discuss hardware selection, choosing the correct type of measurement for a situation, how the measurement is implemented in the computer, how to perform various measurements, and our view on the future of pro-audio test and measurement.

We would like this to be an open discussion with you, loosely guided by the slides, about your measurement system, how you use it successfully, and issues you may have.
