Check out Umik 1. I talked with the guy who developed REW he said this will work fine.
Hi shkumar,

I've done some research regarding this and cannot find anything that confirm your statement. Did he say that in any of the threads?

According to post #731 (page 74) in the thread "SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration> MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone" and the thread "REW Forum > UMIK-1 timing reference and Phase" this feature is still on the to-do-list.

Re: Help what to buy and how to connect REW

Here is an email from John Mulcahy:
The UMIK-1 didn't exist when the V5 help was written. Download the V5.01 beta version fromhttp://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/downloads-area/47460-v5-01-beta-downloads-asio-support.html, the UMIK-1 is covered there. You can also find articles on using the UMIK-1 with REW on the MiniDSP website at http://www.minidsp.com/applications/...dmi-on-windows.

Hope it helps. I have not tried it myself.

Re: Help what to buy and how to connect REW

If timing measurements with REW it are desired, a XLR mic is best selected so that loopback timing cable can be used on the other analog channel of the audio interface.

JohnM indicated that a new REW version will be released reasonably soon that will allow timing with a USB mic, but it is not yet clear on how long that will actually be.

If you purchase an USB mic you can probably do timing measurements using HolmImpulse. I use a XLR mic and audio interface so I haven't actually done it however. It's best to check for sure.

Timing work is much easier in Holm as the controls are better suited to the task. I use Holm for most all driver timing work and use REW for all other types of analysis.

There is also a recent post here where a workaround for REW timing using a USB mic was suggested. I suspect this will work with if done correctly, but have no direct experience.

The safe choice is the XLR mic, but...

Re: Help what to buy and how to connect REW

Thanks for the info about UMIK-1 and USB mic in general, I'm sure someone looking for a mic will find this useful. For me, I have all ready ordered the EMM-6 and it was shipped today. Will look in to the HolmImpulse software =)


But I still need an USB soundcard, do you think the Behringer UCM22 will do?

I would expect that it would be a perfectly fine choice. I have not heard of any similar USB audio interface that is unsuitable for use with REW. I have no actual experience with that unit though.
