dScope Series III helps Soundcraft speed up production line testingCambridge, UK: Prism Sound's dScope Series III digital audio analyser has long been a favourite test and measurement product for recording, live sound and broadcast console manufacturers who want to ensure the audio fidelity of their products.

Comprising a Windows PC software application coupled with an external high-precision audio interface processor for equipment-under-test (EUT) connections, dScope Series III's architecture makes the most of the ever-increasing processing and multi-tasking capabilities of the Windows platform to allow the system to measure many parameters simultaneously in a fast and efficient way.
One console manufacturer that has long been an advocate of dScope Series III is Soundcraft, which has been using the unit in its R&D department for a number of years. However, in recent months the company has acquired even more dScope Series III units - and has sent them straight to China where they are now being used as part of the production process for Soundcraft's consoles.
Russell Ball, Soundcraft's Test Manager says: "We have a broad range of consoles manufactured by our sub contractor in China and we have been integrating Prism Sound's dScope Series III audio analyzers into the manufacturing process for production line testing. We chose dScope Series III on the basis of our previous good experience with the unit and also because it offers multi-tone testing. This involves the simultaneous generation of a number of individual test tones, which are then analysed using FFT analysis. Using this feature, our manufacturer can now test all audio frequencies simultaneously, which results in a significant reduction in test time."
Soundcraft and its sub contractor are among a growing band of dScope Series III users who are choosing the unit because it is highly programmable, making it easy to integrate into an automated production line testing environment. It can also be automated from a wide range of third party software using ActiveX controls, making it possible to automate and remotely control virtually every one of its features and test functions.
"We are very happy with the performance of our dScope Series III units in our manufacturing plants." Russell adds. "Considering the wealth of features that this unit offers, it is easy to operate, flexible, accurate and very competitively priced."
Graham Boswell, Sales Director and co-founder of Prism Sound, adds: "Our aim has always been to deliver the most comprehensive and powerful audio test solutions possible, and at the most competitive price on the market. This, coupled with the very fast testing times that dScope Series III's unique analysis tools enables, gives our customers three very important advantages: Faster product development, faster production test cycles, and reduced capital expenditure. This is clearly no bad thing in today's challenging market conditions where efficiency really matters."
