Re: Hi from a New Comer..

Thanks for the nice welcoming everyone..

I gues my first post will be regarding calibration files for REW..

I imagine these calibration files are to compensate for the response curves of microphones and Sound cards?
Are they necessary to obtain accurate results when using REW?? Wouldn't the use of a generic "calibration file" to suit a particular microphone be almost pointless as individual mics (same brand & model) behave differently..

This is/will be my first attempt at system calibration using signal generation & software

Cheers..

Re: Hi from a New Comer..

Sort of. The idea for the soundcard cal is you create a custom one for your card.
On the mic cal, you can have a custom cal done on your mic if you're after absolute accuracy, but in most cases our generic cal files are close enough for most home enthusiast users, and a big improvement over using no cal file at all.

Don't worry... nothing new here, I've already made that mistake. Trust me.

Thanks Greg..
I've just realised there is a whole forum dedicated for REW.. So I'm might go and "try my luck" over there
