    General Screen Discussion

    This is an experience that has had me frustrated for some time now. Hope it helps some others as well. The problem was streaming Tidal 'Hi-Fi' through my computer. After doing simple test tones I found a huge dip centered at 60hz. Very little sound coming out at this frequency. Most...
  3. Drop Down System Editing

    Community Help
    I must be an idiot because I can't find how to edit the quick drop-down "My System" list that appears underneath everyone's name when they post. I know how to edit the stuff in my profile details, but the quick drop-down is another story. Can anyone help me with that?

  8. Smoothing drop down menu tickmark

    REW Forum
    Would it be possible to have a smoothing indication tickmark in the Graph drop down menu?
