  2. Happy With Results

    REW Forum
    I have been working for months to improve the sound in my multi-purpose basement/home theater. I wasn't having problems at lower volumes, but at higher volumes where I like to listen to movies the bass wasn't as tight as I wanted and dialog was very difficult to understand (probably due to...
  3. Line Mic with HDMI? Can REW measure results of AVR Sub EQ?

    REW Forum
    Hmmm ... forest, trees ... forest, trees. Sorry if this is not the right forum, or if this has been asked before, but I can't find it. My ultimate goal is to use REW to measure the results of filters it previously generated for the subwoofer. In other words, I want to route REW's test...

  14. What does clipping look like in the results?

    REW Forum
    I made some measurements recently at higher levels intending to (carefully) see whether there were any obvious problems at slightly more intense levels. I can see differences between a 512k and 1M sweep at 95dB but I was getting clipping warnings from REW at these levels. Does this render the...

    REW Forum
    I have moved to a jriver+acourate setup and am having trouble measuring the convolved response. It seems like the latency of the filter is large enough to confuse the REW sweep. I am using a focusrite saffire device and hence saffire mixcontrol as the mixer app. My measurement setup is as...
