Question Setup with NTi XL2

I'm just considering whether to use REW to conduct more in-depth room acoustic measurements. Although I'm qualified in acoustics and audio technology, this is somewhat new territory for me. I've done some reading and I understand the basics.

I'm interested only in measuring the impulse response of individual rooms, with a view to treating reverberation. I'm not concerned with hi-fi setup in any way, so would be running this via our active loudspeaker, an FBT XLite 12. I'd use a Macbook.

What I'm trying to figure out is whether our existing sound level meter - an NTi XL2 - can be used in conjunction with a laptop running REW. What additional hardware will I need? Presumably a USB audio interface, and suitable cables... If anyone has experience of setting up the XL2 with REW, I'd be grateful to hear from you!

Doubtful that any here have experience with a device like that that costs over $1000.

As long at the Nti has an audio output jack, you can use it with the USB interface of your choice.

Wayne

Re: Setup with NTi XL2

Thanks, Wayne. There is a 3.5mm headphone output - not sure if that would suffice. In any case, I realise I could just buy the UMIK USB mic and save the hassle of a USB audio interface altogether, as I don't have one of those yet, either.

Re: Setup with NTi XL2

Hmm. Well, you might not need the interface if your computer has a line input. The interface would mainly be for a mic that required a balanced input and /or phantom power. It’s been years, but people used to use a set-up like that all the time. Been so long since I’ve seen it that I had forgotten!
