REW YouTube Tutorial

Compliments of GIK Acoustics. We would like to thank GIK Acoustics for preparing a very nice YouTube Tutorial on how to use REW. GIK tells us it is the first of several we can look forward to seeing. Thank you GIK!

Hi Sonnie, i agree thanks to GIK and yourself for posting this.

Hopefully there will be more tutorial videos, personally i would rather watch a video than read a book.

It would be great to watch tutorial videos, to what is best used for a certain application, and frequency range.

Keep it up

Yep the program itself is FREE, but you need measuring hardware e.g. Mic + Preamp/Soundcard with phantom power.
I use the Omnimc mic + laptop soundcard that has its own software, read my thread MIC THOUGHTS.

Re: REW YouTube Tutorial

A good mic is certainly desirable for best effect. That said, even something as simple as the Radio Shack meter, USB external sound card, and the correction file for the RS meter will still get you a long way. When you're looking for relative change, we can still see that even with the inconsistencies in that sort of setup.

..... and there will be more videos.

Re: REW YouTube Tutorial, loopback query

Thank you for the in-depth video! It definitely helped.

It's just one of those things, though--I am still not sure if I have set up my little 2-channel M-Audio Fast Track Audio Pro to successfully complete the soundcard calibration...

Was hoping you could help me kill the confusion about 1) what my soundcard and the line input/outputs should look like beforehand, and 2) how to set up the Preferences/Soundcard settings to successfully complete the calibration test in REW.

Channel 1 ('left') has a 1/4" jack looping back to the Channel 1 output. In effect, my left monitor speaker is now disconnected from the sound card, yes? I've run the 'Levels' test using Main Speaker to Check Level, and I've got my Channel 1 input level boosted to match the -12dB noise from the software, which is only coming out the right monitor speaker. Clicked ok finish.

Channel 2 ('right') has an XLR leading to my Beyerdynamic MM1 Electret, input level at 0, phantom power on.

Have also ticked the 'Use Loopback as a Timing Reference' box under 'Analysis'.

I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to set 'Input Channel' to Right and then hit Calibrate, but...I feel like I"m missing something! And the result back from the sine sweep test is always "You're about -34 dB short." Any help on this?

Much obliged if you could point me in the right direction elsewhere if not. Thank you much

Re: REW YouTube Tutorial

I'm not familiar with that. I spoke with Glenn and he had the same thought that I did - as long as it shows as a soundcard and is bi-directional, it should be fine.
