S.A.M.M.™ – Smart Sound Management

Sound Attenuation Matrix Management
by Acoustics First®
20 Years ago, John W. Gardner developed the ASP™ Panel Technology to maintain optimal acoustic performance of our acoustic absorber product lines – like the Sonora® Wall Panels. Recent developments have been made to augment this earlier technology, and our Research & Development team has evolved this technology into the “information age.”
Meet S.A.M.M.™, the smart way to manage your panel maintenance tasks.
S.A.M.M.™ Panels analyze the acoustic environment and use this information to track their exposure to sound pressure levels. This can be monitored real-time, either directly through the energy efficient OLED screen, or using any device with a web browser.
This technology allows more than just monitoring the acoustic environment. The S.A.M.M.™ Enabled panels have a HAL BIOS which runs a webserver daemon that gives you full-control of your panels and the acoustic environment…
… but this isn’t only for S.A.M.M.™ Enabled Panels!
After a simple firmware upgrade to your ASP™ panels, you will have full control over your entire acoustic environment – from anywhere in the world.
I am flattered that you have taken the time to reevaluate one of my lifetime projects. I owe all of my minimal knowledge… to my first professor… I LIRPA.Dr. John Wesley Gardner
Watch the following video to see the history of the ASP™ panels developed by the irreverent, John W. Gardner, and their evolution into the Sound Attenuation Matrix Management Technology known as… S.A.M.M.™
S.A.M.M.™ is Open Source
Acoustics First® values innovation, and we can all stand on the shoulders of giants. Customers can build their own implementations and create the ideal solution for their environment. While you can use whichever hardware that you have access to, here is the hardware our research team used to develop our in house integration.
Custom 3D Printed Housing (PLA)
SEEEDuino XIAO M0+ (MCU)
128×64 OLED (SSD1306)
SD Card Reader (SPI)
Electret MIC w/Adj. Gain (MAX4466)
5 Watt/8 Ohm Speaker
12mm Momentary Switch (Red LED)
Optional – 10000mah USB Battery

The S.A.M.M.™ Source code was written in PlatformIO to be compatible with the Arduino Platform. The MCU is the SEEEDuino XIAO M0+ with the ARM Cortex M0 processor.
The libraries used in this project may need to be changed based on your hardware selections.
S.A.M.M.™ Web Console
Experience the S.A.M.M.™ Web Console interface. View the real-time output of the first S.A.M.M.™ unit, installed in the Acoustics First® R&D LAB. You can view the current capacity of the panel, as well as the average sound intensity – and as a bonus – we allow users to PURGE the panel remotely!

Quick Case Study: The Bank of NH Stage.

The Bank of New Hampshire Stage is multipurpose venue that hosts live performances, corporate events, movies as well as weddings. The venue’s designers aimed for an acoustical environment that achieves a balanced and intimate atmosphere for their audience and performers.
Sonora® Wall Panels and Sonora® Baffles were used to control specular reflections (echoes) and reduce overall reverberation down to a suitable level for the wide variety of BONH Stage shows and events. The results are absolutely stunning!
