Re: Using the UMIK-1 and REW with HDMI output

I gave this a go, and when I got to channel 4 (The subwoofer) the output was incredibly low. As in, even with the sub turned the whole way up, the mic could hardly pick it up. And it's not like it's a small sub either (REL R528)

Any ideas?

I just used the umik mic and hdmi output for the first time, had a bit of trouble getting multi channel audio enabled on the hdmi output for my Toshiba Qosmio laptop.

It ended up being caused by HDMI-CEC in the bios- this needs to be disabled for multichannel.

It's fairly rare ( though more common on older PCs ), but not every HDMI equipped PC is able to output multi-channel sound through the HDMI connector .

One quick way to determine if the card ( graphics card actually ) will output more than 2 channels is to hover the mouse pointer over the appropriate output description ( as found within the ASIO4ALL control panel ) .

Invaluable, my new best friend! I was only looking at "STATUS" and didn't notice this first time 'round. Thank you!

AudiocRaver... It's all good (at least that's what the paranoid voices in my head tell me)! Thanks for your kind words. I'll stop spamming this thread now.

You should feel honored the voices speak to you. That makes you special.

Re: Using the UMIK-1 and REW with HDMI output

I have done the test suggested by Lumen with ASIO to check the channels of the HDMI out of the ASUS laptop K550C (win 8.1) It showes 2x.
So I when to the bios has GCG suggested ( go ther to know how
) HD audio was unlock.
I can not use rew and asio4all with my hometheater. And , for the moment nothing works with JAVA.
I made my first measurement of my stereo system upstairs in my home. Surprisingly with succes...I think. That looks promising.
It is my first time with REW, I would have loved to do the same with my HT. I am a little disappointed for that. It is maybe beyong my computor skills

Re: Using the UMIK-1 and REW with HDMI output

Hi:
  1. I have the UMIK-1 USB mic, and d/l'd the calibration files and in REW - pointed to them (the non 90 degree)
  2. Next step inm the OPs directions was to set drivers to ASIO and sample rate to 48 Hz - which I did
  3. I changed the ASIO Device to ASIO4All v2 and then clicked the "ASIO Control Panel" button - and entered advanced (wrench) mode. However next to my HDMI out it has an X stating that it's in use
    Any ideas?
