Here are two acoustical spectrum analyzers that get the job done for standard conference or training rooms.

I sent out a request on Google+ recently to find out what AV technology apps the pros were using.

Alan Ogle, President and Gold Level Crestron programmer of LiquidLogix, of Westminster, CO, weighed-in: “I’ve used Pocket RTA and Real Time Analyzer on several occasions. Gets the job done,” says Ogle.

“I use them to get a basic calibration of a room.  Not every job though, but if it is a job that I am doing the DSP programming I will use it. It does a pretty decent job. Not the greatest mic on the iPhone but it works.  Some of the apps have mic accessories that you can get which is more of a professional mic setup. Haven’t used one of those yet. Using a mic accessory I can see this being a very useful tool, and inexpensive compared to some of the current RTA’s. Right now I can’t see using it to calibrate a home theater (I would use the calibration mic that some receivers come with now), but definitely for your standard conference room or training room. Thats it,” concludes Ogle.

If you are using an iPhone, iPad or Andriod app that “gets the job done,” please share in the comments below and/or drop me a line at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

Get the studio six digital audio toolbox and the smaart plugin. Worth the money. It's relatively accurate and works on iPhone and iPad alike. RTA, generator, spl meter, recorder, etc. everything you need.
