  2. Waterfall reading issue

    REW Forum
    Hi all, I had just applied some acoustic treatment to my room and was working into recalibrating and doing a new REW measurement. My first reading looked OK I believe. But I was playing with crossovers and speakers levels trying to learn / improve the graphic and then ... I broke something I...
  3. Am i reading this right ?

    REW Forum
    Hi guys, My home theater room does not have any acoustic treatment and so I'm planning to make some investment on panels. Before that, I wanted to understand where exactly I need to make improvements. I was able to run a REW measurement on my room (first time) and I'm trying to interpret the...
  4. REW - reading results

    REW Forum
    Hello, after many hardships and the multitude of questions raised in various forums I've just made the first measurements. Unfortunately, still I'm far from the first attempts to adapt, because it's found out that I totally can not interpret the results (graphs). I don't understand them...

  6. Problem : Low SPL reading

    REW Forum

  8. Unable to get proper mic calibration after reading UMIK Instructions

    REW Forum
    I'm trying to follow the instructions from the miniDSP website "Using the UMIK-1 with HDMI output - Windows" and I think I'm following it correctly but nevertheless am having problems. I've attached screen shots of where I'm at with ASIO4ALL and the sound calibration to 75dB. I've got the...
  9. Low SPL reading

    REW Forum
    Got Umik1 from CS. Prepared the first session with REW. Umik in MLP. All cabling OK. Got generator signal out of speakers (pink noise, speaker cal, level -12dB). Set speakers (L/R, no sub) to a comfortable level , fairly loud. REW's SPL meter shows VERY low levels, around 25-30 dB even though...
  10. UMIK-1 REW SPL reading at 90 in quiet room

    REW Forum
    As the title says, my REW SPL reading with my UMIK-1 is showing at 90. My SPL meter on my phone shows as 35 at the same time. I must have missed something...I have the UMIK-1 calibration file loaded into REW. I could use the meter on my phone to check my levels, but I'm thinking that with the...
  11. Reading speaker graphs

    Ported Subwoofer Build Projects
    Is there any tutorials about how to read the graphs people post using WINISD ? What makes one good or bad ? I really have no idea what I am looking at. I can make educated guesses of course but I'd love to see some fairly basic conversation for a noob like myself ;) I am thinking about...
  12. Reading BFD Parameters

    Electronic Processing/Equalization Devices
    Hi Everyone, I haven't been able to find an answer to this, so I thought I'd ask. I've loaded some filters into my BFD 1124P via REW's MIDI interface. The filters are loaded, but somehow or another when I did a save of the filter settings using REW, I got a blank .req file. :sweat: Can...
  13. Phase reading on inlay feature?

    REW Forum
    I am loving REW. How do you use the Phase inlay reading. Should the phase of my sub be completely in phase on this feature or does my spl reading out weigh the the phase page? I have no training in sound. Love the "sound" learning curve since i downloaded REW. musicguy :scratch:

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hello I have just started to test my microphone. The first I did was to test SPL readings in silent room (not possible to get it 100% silent). I know that I will get wrong results because of the noise floor of the microphone. To my suprise the readings was much higher than expected (~65db(z)...

  16. Phase reading

    REW Forum
    I made a room acoustics measurement with FastTrack Pro an ECM8000, I did the calibration process and I'm getting a good amplitude response but an ugly phase trace. Is this trace correct? How can I read these results? The place is a small recording room with splayed walls. The source was an...
