  2. Mic Calibration CSV Format - Behringer vs Cross Spectrum Labs

    REW Forum
    Hi there, I'm just getting started with using REW and practised taking some readings using an AKG CK61 ULS Capsule (probably not great to measure) but just to get used to the process - I'm getting there. I now have a Behringer ECM8000 - So two quick questions; 1) I have downloaded the...

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood

  6. Wanted: Custom format (H/V) feature on new flatscreen

    HDTV | Video Displays | Processors
    I hate the scrolling ticker across the bottom of the screen during sports programs so much, that I am considering buying a new 55-65" flatscreen if it had custom format settings. IOW, if I stretch the vertical by about 5%, then the ticker would move below the bottom edge of the picture. I...
  7. Scale format in REW

    REW Forum
    Hi Everyone, I am a very "lucky" REW user and think that some new feature could be added. I am currently using REW more for hardware testing (amplifier, codec, filtering, ...) and noticed that results seems to be always in "acoustical" format (dbSPL, dB(A), ....) rather than in "electrical"...
  8. What format do you watch your movies on?

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Ok, so it seems that streaming is becoming very popular but my personal opinion is that we are loosing a lot of quality due to compression both on the audio and video side. So... my question is what media delivery format do you use? More than one answer is allowed. Vote in the attached Poll and...

  11. PS3/PS4 best video format

    Video Game Systems | Video Games
    I recently decided to purchase a 2tb external HDD to store movies on so that I can pay them on my PS3 and eventually my PS4. I have done some research on the format video files should be in, but there seems to be a disagreement. Some say to use mp4, others say mkv, and a few say to keep it as...
  12. Support biquad EQ filters or .req file format

    REW Forum
    I'm building a custom custom DSP based on cascading biquad IIR filters and would love to be able to extract the filter coeffs from the EQ plugin in REW. Ideally I would love if REW could generate the coeffesients and export them, but I understand if that is a bit technical. How is this done for...

  15. Ultimate Subwoofer

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    This will probably be the drop off point for most of the info for the revamped ultimate horn subwoofer. This box has been built by quite a few gents and delivers boom like none other I have designed or listened to. The original driver is no longer available, but there is a replacement. And it...
  16. MCA, PCM+ open source SS format

    Audio Processing
    http://srslabs.com/landing.aspx?id=2459 Looks interesting. I've asked myself why surround sound systems don't approach sound fields in this way. The only issue I see is with implementation. You would need a cheap mic that would be able to distinguish the direction sound is coming from.

  19. What's your favorite format?

    Two Channel Audio
    This may seem to be a simple question (or not), but if you had to have all of your music on one format, what would it be?? Analog (vinyl, reel-to-reel tape etc.), Red Book CD, SA-CD, XR-CD HD-CD, DVD-A...you get the picture. So, what is your favorite format and why??
  20. Thump During Surround Format Change

    System Setup and Connection
    I have a tx-sr876 and just picked up a used HK Citation 7.1 amplifier. I was planning on using two of the channels for the left and right mains, and then bridging the other two channels for my sub. It replaced a Gallo Reference SA sub amp. It appears to work fine, except that anytime I change...
