    I have gone through all the steps to measure my setup properly, including buying an ECM8000 mic and a Novation Speedio external sound... card? unit? Whatever. It seems to give a good frequency response even uncalibrated anyway (but I have of course applied calibration). I have a setup...
  8. My second attempt at measurements

    REW Forum
