Re: No Sound during Setting Levels????

Hi Wayne

Thank you.

You said: “after seeing your sound card screen, I’m not even sure that’s been done correctly”.

Why can you just tell me what is wrong??

It is like pulling teeth with you. You rarely answer my questions.

I though the Forum was sharing experiences from the wise to the novice.

I am very depressed about the complete experience. I know you find the set up easy, but there are some out there who have no idea.

Just asking for some understanding and straight answers

Re: No Sound during Setting Levels????

From the last screen shot you posted (where you had Speakers selected as the output) things look pretty close. A couple of small things to change:

  1. The input is set to "Default input", it needs to be set to the first thing in the dropdown list after Default input (the wording varies, but there will only be one choice)
  2. Check the "Control output mixer/volume" box, that will let you change the volume on that analog output using the "Output Volume" control in REW. It looks a little low at the moment, try setting it to 0.5

REW remembers settings for the next time it starts up so you don't need to set things again. Just make sure your UMIK is plugged in before you start up REW. Otherwise that should be it, close the Preferences dialog and use the Measure button to make a measurement. The sweep you hear during a measurement should be at a comfortable volume, if it is too loud or too quiet adjust your preamp's volume and try again.

Hi John

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I think I have made a frequency graph. I used the 1/6 octave smoothing.

Am I on the right track????

Thank you.

Re: No Sound during Setting Levels????

In the first screen shot your Output is back on Default Output again. Please set that to Speakers. Note that if you unplug the analog output lead your on-board soundcard may make the output unavailable to REW (some cards detect whether the jack is inserted) so best to connect it before starting REW and keep it connected while REW is running.

The measurement looks OK. Your graph scalings are too wide (which is why it looks very flat), click the Limits button at the top right of the graph and set the top SPL to 105 dB and the bottom SPL to 45 dB.

Re: No Sound during Setting Levels????

Hi John

Thanks for the advice especially the scaling. I thought I had a nice flat curve. Silly me!!!

Now I can really see that my speakers are a little less than adequate…. not much under 50Hz and dropping a little more than I thought after 7kHz

The top graph is before Eq and the bottom is after I have used my equaliser.

Thanks…. Now I will have to find a small sub…. that is another whole topic.

But thank you…at least I am past the basics….

Up and running

Don't get carried away at HF. It is normal for listening position measurements to show roll-off at the high end, if you EQ them back to flat the result may be very bright.
