Test Files

ToneTip test files are very useful for testing the audio environment prior to live presentations. ToneTip audio environment testing should be conducted before important events in large venues such as stadiums, theaters, convention centers. Tests are conducted by playing the ToneTip test file through the speaker system. While the test audio is playing, open the ToneTip app on a smartphone. Move to one location and wait 10 second for the app to detect and decode the audio, then move to another location and continue testing. Be sure to walk slowly or occasionally stop to check the environment. Moving quickly creates Doppler shift of the ToneTip audio and may reduce decoding capability.

19kHz Test Files
Test 19-1 One, 5 second 19KHz ToneTip with a one second buffer at each end. The 19k ToneTip logo should appear when tested with the ToneTip app.
Test 19-10 Ten 5 second 19kHz ToneTip file with a one second buffer between each ToneTip. The 19k ToneTip test logo will appear with every other ToneTip when tested with the ToneTip app.
Test 19-1H One hour of 19kHz ToneTips. This is useful for testing a large area such as a conference center, theater or stadium. The 19k ToneTip test logo will alternate between orange and blue when tested with the ToneTip app. Moving quickly through an area may cause some detections to be skipped.
