  2. Problem calibrating sound card(s)

    REW Forum
    I'm having a problem with the sound card calibration. After the measurement it gives me an error saying there is an 9db or greater difference throughout the range. I have an onboard RealTek and a PCI based Rocketfish both report the same error. When I get to the 2nd "Next" where you adjust...
  3. Are these sound cards good enough ?

    REW Forum
    I understand that you don't have to have a very high quality sound card for taking measurements with REW. I would like to take measurements with my laptop (in order to do full frequency room correction, not just low frequency) and currently have two sound cards available. The first is the...

  7. Anyone Familiar with RME Hammerfall cards?

    Pro Audio
    I've got a hardware conflict I'm trying to resolve - everything was working smoothly until I connected a control surface to an older set-up using MIDI, for which the control surface didn't do so well. The newer outboard items really seem to like USB much more. Anyway, after experiencing some...

    REW Forum
    Hi Guys, Are there any DCX 2496 like sound cards available? A 2.1 or 5.1 external sound card that can function as a 2 or 3 way crossover and equalizer? If it had a REW like function that would be great too. I would like to use it to tune an outdoor movie theater system connected to a...
  9. Confused about the veracity of laptop sound cards

    REW Forum
    I'm new here and have been doing a lot of reading regarding REW. The help files (#3) plainly says that microphone inputs are NOT suitable and shouldn't be used. Yet I find posts where folks say no sweat if you switch the control panel options from mic in to line in. BTW I have a Dell Vostro...

  17. Sound Cards

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Processors and video cards get most of the attention, but a good sound card is essential for HT. I am using a Soundblaster Audigy 2, which I picked up for gaming. Sound is not critical in gaming; as long as you can hear that spider tap-tap-tapping down the darkened corridor, you'll be fine. But...
