Smaart SPL - Staying Safe While Getting Loud

Smaart SPL: Staying Safe While Getting Loud

This presentation by Rational Acoustics SPL Application Specialist Michael Lawrence was originally presented at the 2020 Event Safety Summit, and again at NAMM 2021's Believe in Music Week. The original presentation also featured a live chat and a follow-up Q&A session with Michael Lawrence and Jamie Anderson.

Are concerts too loud? This session will get participants up to speed on the facts surrounding the issue of sound exposure at concerts. After covering the basic concepts involved (and busting a few myths along the way), this presentation will look at real-world concert SPL data, and some tricks that mix engineers use to exploit the divide between what the meter says and what our ears tell us.
