Re: REW Sound Card Database

For a computer use card I have heard from people in the industry it is OK, not great. From a precision
audio testing need, wouldn't be my first choice! But if for one time, in your home theatre, it would work. I am looking at a Focusrite piece right now personally

Re: REW Sound Card Database

Thanks for reply, I am on a tight budget and at this point I am only experimenting a little. There is an m-audio dealer nearby, looking also at the m-audio fastrack mk2, would it be a better choice than the creative and will it work well with REW?

Re: REW Sound Card Database

Honestly haven'y used the M Audio, but I would think the M-Audio has a better D/AC built in.
Creative, and this isn't a knock, is a company based in the computer market, and M-Audio is based in the semi-pro home recording company. You might want to check what has been added within the last few years into M Audio product from Pro Tools partnership, if anything. They just divested themselves of M-Audio, as they are concentrating on the Live & studio markets. M-Audio for the money has always been good value. Creative has been great value as well, just not sure of the spec, and if the spec is flat accross the spectrum..You'll have to do your homework. check some of the pro-audio sites. good luck!

Re: REW Sound Card Database

You might want to check some of the 'GAMING' sites as this is a card that is well known in that arena, and if you can't find it there, you should be able to find information and user comments on some of the PC sites. They also sell product under a different brand name, which you can most likely identify, if not spelled out in a review, via the looks and features.

Re: REW Sound Card Database

To date have been using:
Sound Meter RS 33-4050 ,
Desktop PC with XP SP3 32-bit
Sound Blaster X-Fi with external I/O Console.
ASIO drivers work fine with REW.
Frequency response of SB is great, noise level is low but Iím concerned about phase as measured by REW. It looks weird above 10khz.

Hoping to take measurement to higher level-
I just received a USB Tascam US-122MKII to use with an ASUS Laptop, Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
I have a pair of B&K 4007ís. I have the original factory Calibration charts that are dated Jan. 1993!
Iím considering having one of them calibrated by Cross-Sectrum. Any thoughts?

BTW, many thanks to Dave Baldwin for the info on using the US-122MKII with REW. It will be very helpful getting it set up.
