Rational Acoustics LLC in Putnam, Conn., has appointed Sonotribe Audio Consultants in Mexico City as the official providers of Spanish language Smaart Training Classes for Mexico and Latin America.

Founded in 2007 by Oscar Gamas and Salvador Castaneda, Sonotribe provides system design and analysis services for a wide variety of clients across Latin America in addition to teaching classes in audio theory, system design and implementation. Prior to founding Sonotribe, Oscar and Salvador were employed by Meyer Sound in the design and education departments respectively. Together they possess more than 25 years of experience in professional audio design, development and instruction in Mexico and worldwide.

“Our goal has always been to provide the highest-quality technical and educational support for the Smaart user base,” notes Jamie Anderson, Rational Acoustics CEO and Smaart instructor. “Providing regional, local-language training classes is an excellent way to accomplish this goal and I can’t think of anyone better equipped to lead this effort in Latin America than Sonotribe. Oscar and Salvador are incredibly talented instructors and we have every confidence that they will provide a phenomenal experience for those attending their classes.”

Adds Gamas, Sonotribe CEO and consultant: “Our objective is to expand professional audio education services in México and Latin America and to provide our students with the best information and tools required for their success. Smaart is one of the most powerful solutions in the industry and now under the management of a remarkable company like Rational Acoustics the further development of Smaart software and educational programs is guaranteed. Sonotribe and Rational share very similar business philosophies and we are sure that this will be a successful and strategic business partnership to support regional requirements of the Latino market.”

After an inaugural Mexico City Smaart Class in July 2009, Sonotribe is now actively scheduling classes in other locations in Latin America throughout the fall and winter. The next Spanish language classes will be in Bogota, Columbia, on September 7-9 and in Caracas, Venezuela, September 14-16.

Interested attendees can contact Sonotribe directly at for information on attending a class.
