Question about Interactive Response Editor

Youngling Posts: 12 Join Date: 12/21/10 Recent Posts

I have just used AutoCal for the first time and was browsing through the different options in the manual settings.
Now in the window "Interactive Response Editor" there are two options for smoothing: "Genelec Accu Smooth" and "Third Octave Smoothing" - the latter is activated by default.
What are the differences between the two algorithms and in which case would you recommend which one?

Thanks in advance!

Genelec AccuSmoothâ„¢ is a proprietary frequency response smoothing algorithm that provides a higher resolution (narrower smoothing bandwidth) at low frequencies compared with the standard 1/3 octave smoothing, and similar resolution at high frequencies. This is used by AutoCal to ensure accurate placement of equalizing notch filters at critical/problematic bass frequencies.

The smoothing selection in the Interactive Response Editor is for viewing purposes only, it doesn't affect the actual AutoCal algorithm. So you can choose the one you prefer to look at, usually 1/3 octave smoothing is used by most users.
