Using the UMIK-1 and REW with HDMI output

Making it really simple to get REW setup with nothing more than a USB mic and an HDMI cable:

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

It is indeed pretty simple.

The only caution I can think of that might cause a hiccup is to make sure you don't have anything else open that might use HDMI, such as JRiver or another program that uses HDMI out. I had JRiver open and pulled up REW to test it out and could not get any output, until I closed JRiver, which I have setup to use HDMI.

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

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 ) .

Here's how to ( find & ) open up the ASIO4ALL control panel ( from within REW ) .

Sometimes that is an issue with the multi-channel capabilities being disabled in the BIOS. Don't abandon hope till you rule that out.

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

I'm PC illiterate how do you find out if the BIOS disabled the multi-channel and if the BIOS disabled the multi-channel capability what then ? is there a way to re-instate it ? I have a 2014 ASUS laptop with i7 and a realtek High definition audio with HDMI and I only see 2 channels ,also when I do a level test with HDMI out to the front HDMI input of my Onkyo 5507 I can see REW on the TV but the sound only comes out of my laptop speakers and not through my HT system. I've don everything in the link that you provided but I still have these two problems. please help but like I said I'm very PC illiterate
