TrueRTA Version 3.4.0 is released
- The internal data structure was widely revised and simplified with the result that the analyzer now runs more efficiently with significantly reduced CPU usage.
- The precision of all utility functions is improved with the new structure. The smoothing utility now operates with essentially no perceived delay'even for the broadest smoothing operations. The reduced processing time allowed the upper limit of the smoothing range to be increased from 1 octave to 5 octaves.
- The accuracy for repeated data export/import is now excellent.
- Further benefits for the revision include greatly reduced file size and faster file operations. Note that project files saved with previous versions of TrueRTA are forward compatible with the new version. However, files saved with the new version are not backward compatible with previous versions.
- The Peak Hold bar display mode was revised to also show the live data within the peak.
- A Trigger Level Control and selection for Automatic Triggering were added at the Oscilloscope Tool Bar. Scope triggering is now much like that of a bench-top scope. Scope trace printing was changed so that traces are not printed outside the scope area.
- The Oscilloscope display can now be scrolled horizontally using Alt+Right and Alt+Left.
A preference selection was added to choose DC offset removal at the oscilloscope. The oscilloscope now uses separate DC offset removal for each of the two channels.
- A preference selection was added to allow the scope trace to be viewed as isolated data points rather than line-connected points. This provides a more intuitive view of higher frequency waveforms where line-connected points are not representative of the true analog waveform.
- The 'Black' color scheme was revised to provide more vivid colors but with reduced plot grid brightness.
- The Generator Dialog Bar's tab order was corrected.
- Many other small improvements were also made.
TrueRTA Version 3.3.4 is released
- The on screen meter display readings
(dBu, dB SPL and crest factor) are now saved with each memory.

points has been increased from 850 to 5000.

- Increased metering display from 4
digits to 5 digits precision
TrueRTA Version 3.1.1 is released
- Fixed a bug where averaging required
that Memory 1 be used.
- Fixed a bug where the dB boxes did not
update completely when a project file was loaded.
TrueRTA Version 3.1.0 is released
TrueRTA now saves and loads Single
Memory Files (.rt1 file type) to facilitate creating custom reports
with mixed data from more than one project file.
Project files now save and load the
complete application setup so that 'test setup' files can be saved and
when loaded they completely restore the test setup in addition to the
saved data. Saved settings include dB and frequency limits, the Mic
calibration file, window size and position'over application 50
settings in all. Old file types can still be opened but will be saved
in the new file format.
Now exports the full frequency range of
data rather than just the selected range.
Revised and updated the Help Topics.
Added custom file icons and the ability
to open a project file by either double-clicking the icon, or dragging
the icon and dropping it on the application window.
Fixed a bug where the utilities could
give bogus results if the FFT sizes or input sampling frequencies of
the data were not matched.
Fixed a bug where importing data breaks
Mic Cal interpolation.
Fixed a bug where exported data was not
calibrated for all sampling frequencies.

Fixed a number of small bugs.
TrueRTA Version 2.0.0 is released
New features include a "Quick
Sweep" feature that automatically generates a digital sweep and
acquires the frequency response with a single click. There is a new
calibration procedure that removes your sound card's response from
your measurements. There is also a new "Relative Mode" feature
that allows you to use any response curve as the reference for
subsequent measurements. The line mode plots now have a smoother look
due to a change in how they are plotted. The interface has been largely
redesigned. You can now export response data.
TrueRTA Version 1.0.0 is released
The initial release of TrueRTA.
Here are the most commonly
reported problems along with suggested solutions. Also see the FAQ.
My Registration Code Does Not
registration information is not entered correctly/completely. It is always
best to directly copy the information from your registration email and
then paste it into User Registration dialog box in TrueRTA. Manual entry
tends to be error prone.
Your personal information (Name, address, etc.) is
used to generate the registration code. Whe the application starts
your user information is compared to the registration code to establish
the level of operation. If the user information does not precisely match
the code then the application only runs at Level 1. So if you ever need to
add/change a title or change your phone number
you will have to have a new code generated (here)
from your changed personal information.
Below is a typical User Registration entry. If this user happend to enter
his title as "owner" instead of "Owner" the code would not work because
the user information is now different from the information used to
generate the code. Every letter, space and comma must exactly match the
registration information in your registration email. Make sure to back up
your registration email so that you can reactivate the software in the
future on a new PC or following a disc crash.
Simple mistakes that will cause the above code to not work:
The user failed to enter the period after his middle
initial. (use the exact punctuation seen in
the registration email)
The "O" in "Owner" was entered in lower case.
(all text is case sensitive)
"123 Main St." was entered as "123 Main Street".
(Street should be St. and breaks the code)
"Smithville" is mistakenly spelled
"Smithvile". (even the smallest spelling error
will break the code)
We gave you a code that does not work.
(this has happened ony once ever!)
There are three hidden spaces following the
title "Owner " instead of "Owner".
(hidden spaces will break the code)
The letter "o" or "O" has been entered in the
code instead of the number "0" (zero). (The
registration code may include zeros but never the letter "O")
If you are having trouble entering your registration information we
strongly recommend copying and pasting the information from the original
registration email sent from True Audio.
clicking OK at the calibration dialog I can no longer see any response:
Your TrueRTA is probably miscalibrated. The quick fix is to go to the Audio I/O menu and open the Line Out and Line In Calibration
dialogs. At each of these dialogs click on the button labeled
"Restore Default Calibration." That should fix the problem.
I seem to be getting feedback of some
You may have the Windows Playback mixer set
wrong. Open the Windows Playback mixer and make sure that you DO NOT have
Line-In selected and that the Line-In fader is at minimum. Only the WAVE
signal should be selected at the Play mixer. (a hard wired feedback loop
can be created if you are in loopback configuration with the Line-In
signal is selected and fader raised...not good) This
can cause a wide range of strange problems.
