Re: Saffire PRO24 calibration

Hi all, I'm all very new to this and having some trouble calibrating my soundcard and was hoping someone could answer some of my questions.

My sound card is a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24, I'm on OSX 10.9. As you can see in the attached img the calibrated file that has being created seems weird compared to some of the calibration graphs I've seen on the forum. I was wondering if I was doing something wrong? I have gotten both the in & out at -12db, so am not sure if this is a correct calibration?

Looking forward to some help to resolve my issue.. Many thanks in advance!

A direct quote from JohnM from another question about the same problem:


"That is caused by feedback from a monitoring path, see step 5 in Calibrating the soundcard in the REW help. You don't mention which version of Windows you are running, the Windows mixer settings may be feeding some of the input signal back to the output - in recent versions of Windows that is caused by a "Listen to this device" box being selected (it shouldn't be) or by the volume of the Line In signal on the output mixer not being zero or muted in older versions. Creative's own software on older versions of Windows also has some mixer controls that may be the culprit."

Of course your not using windows, but I suspect that it's a "direct monitoring" feature or the "monitor mixer" setting on the focusrite. I use a Saffire6 USB and if I don't have the monitor mix knob turned fully counter clockwise, to input, then I'll get the same problem.
