M-Audio Fast track Pro and ECM8000

Hello!
I am looking for some advice and guidance through the jungles of REW.
I have been bumping my head against a wall here and even reading for days seems to have not born any fruits.
Running WIndows 7 (64bit), M-Audio Fast track Pro and a EMC 8000.
Here is my loopback for the Fast Track Audio. As far as I can tell it is rolling off at the low end way to fast. Is this correct?
I have the loop from the front 1(XLR) to the back 1 RCA. Any suggestions for troubleshooting?

An interface in that price range should have perfectly flat response, or at least not the severe droop you see at the low end. I’d say make sure you don’t have some kind of high pass filter, tone control, etc. engaged.

Wayne

My Fast Track Pro is down 1 dB at about 6 Hz, you definitely have something messing with your frequency response.

Re: M-Audio Fast track Pro and ECM8000

Thanks for the swift replies.
I tried another cable and the measurements are much more like it should be.
Seems like it does not like the XLR - RCA cables.

The buttons and knobs are set as follows on the Fast Track
Square 1:

Gain : Fully anticlockwise.
Pad: depressed
Inst/Line: depressed

Square 2:

Stereo/ Mono: Depressed
Mix: Fully Clockwise
Output: Almost Fully Clockwise
A/B: Depressed.
Headpone: Centre

Back:
RCA connected to Output 1.
Phanthom Power off.
Are all my settings correct?
Can I now do start the next step?

Re: M-Audio Fast track Pro and ECM8000

You probably already know - the Mix know must always be fully clockwise (output only) so no input signal
goes to output.
