  2. Sub cal tone and sub sweep at same -dB level give different SPL readings.

    REW Forum
    I have a CSL EMM-6 (w/ sensitivity) and a Scarlett 2i2. I used this basic method to calibrate the SPL of REW. I have the mic calibration file loaded in REW as well as one for the audio interface. I take a sweep at a given level using HDMI (ASIO4ALL) from the PC to receiver, say -30dB in REW...

    REW Forum
    OK here's the basics: I'm a composer, so the computer and monitors are surrounded by controller keyboards and synthesizers, long hard surfaces on all sides except the back. the room has a notably short ceiling, 6' 7" tall 13' wide and 23' long. Carpet, and 2" rock wool traps on the ceiling...

  9. Best to average multiple readings for room correction?

    REW Forum
    Simply moving the measurement microphone a few inches causes the measurement nulls and peaks to move around, especially at the higher frequencies. So, for overall room correction via REW filters, is it best to take an average of numerous readings at different points in the room - or at least...
  10. How to get distortion readings on REW?

    REW Forum
    Hi, I'm running the 5.01 beta and am trying to get the distortion %. After doing a sweep, I hit the "distortion" button and the various graphs show up (e.g. 2nd harmonic, 3rd harmonic, etc). However, next to the legend it just shows " – dB". Even after I go to "Control" and select percentage...

  12. Why do readings with one speaker look better than both?

    REW Forum
    So, I took some readings using Sub + FR, Sub + FL, and Sub + Both Mains. FR + Sub looks the smoothest. As you can see, Sub + FL produces a major dip at 100Hz and Sub + Both Mains produces a major dip at 166Hz. Is this normal? Something I should worry about? Possible to fix? Thanks.

  15. High SPL readings via REW?

    REW Forum
    Hey. For some reason I am unable to measure above around 96db on my REW setup. I have a ECM8000 and behringer USB card hooked up to a vista laptop. I use a little behringer mixer as phantom power. When I tried, for fun, to read out some high SPL readings it seems my system insists it can only...
