Tone Burst Test Signal CD

The audio signals on the CD allow you to test and evaluate the behavior of your listening room in response to your loudspeakers.  At frequencies below 200 Hz the tests rely on listening and lead to the detection of room mode (resonance, standing wave) frequencies and their effect upon the reproduction of fluctuations in the low frequency multi-burst test signal (ADD1 on CD-download)

Room reflections are best evaluated by using a storage oscilloscope to display the time response to a short duration toneburst (ADD2 on CD-download).
The response to short tonebursts from 20 Hz to 20 kHz can be measured with a fast, peak holding SPL meter, if available, or a storage oscilloscope. The Radio Shack sound level meters are too slow for the high frequency bursts and at low frequencies their response is rolled off. Accurate single burst measurements require instruments like the NTI Acoustilyzer.

For other tests using the toneburst signals see the more detailed description of the CD track contents below.
All signals are recorded equally in left and right channels. A voice announcements of signal type and of each upcoming burst frequency is added to the left channel.
