I ran a show last night for two funk bands in a room that was around 24' wide and around 40' long. High ceilings with some corner conditioning but a brick wall on one side and drywall on all the others. The staging was 16' wide and half was 8' long and the other half 12' long. There was three or four horns, bass amp, guitar amp and keys amps with three vocal mics, drum set and percussions. Filled up the mix wiz I was using. It LOUD AS F#%$!. I would have pegged it at (the FOH booth and all over the room frankly) around or over 100 dB but my assitant's smart phone was regestering it at 92-93. dB. It was a nokia or something. These apps seem to be popping up on all the brands. Are there particular models that are more accurate and/or are the same programs writtin for different model phones? And does anyone know how and if they are calibrated? Does anyone have a model/app that has been tested against relyable test equipment?
