New company Rational Acoustics LLC (Putnam, Conn.; www.rational — founded by industry veterans (pictured above, from left) Karen Anderson, Jamie Anderson, Adam Black and Calvert Dayton — offers a range of training classes and product sales for users in the field of acoustic text and measurement, and system alignment. The company also plans to develop new system-alignment software and hardware gear.

Classes (seen above, right) will focus on general system-alignment theory and practice, and specific product training. “Right now, our product-focused training is specific to [SIA] Smaart because that is where the majority of us have recently come from,” says Jamie Anderson, company CEO/resident “Educator Guy.” “But as we continue to grow, we'll include other measurement platforms. We're not promoting a single product or solution; rather, we're here to provide the best range of technologies, techniques, tools and practices to help people get their jobs done.”

Products offered for sale by Rational Acoustics through its Website store include a selection of microphones, preamps, cables and other measurement peripherals.

Notes company COO/“Den Mother” Karen Anderson, “System-alignment professionals have traditionally been one of the smallest niche markets within the professional audio industry. But in recent years, the field of system alignment has grown substantially, going from ‘nice-to-have’ to ‘must-have’ for any serious audio application. As a group, system-alignment pros are very passionate and highly technical, and Rational Acoustics is here to provide them with the community support, education and tools they deserve.”
