  1. Binaural measurement + how exactly does REW process L/R microphone input signals?

    REW Forum
    I've followed / used the work of Dr. Earl Geddes to tune automotive audio systems professionally to down right spooky / lifelike results. I used specialized commercially available hardware and software to achieve this. But who can afford this if they want to apply similar principles at home...

  4. Clicks and sound dropout during sweep signals

    REW Forum
    Hi there is around 20% chance to get a click or sound dropout for 2-3 seconds during sweep signal. This happens with 'Java' setting. 'ASIO' does not work at all - I opened separate thread for that I increased the buffer settings in Configuration from 32k to 64K and 128k - no change. What...
  5. More Savable Test Signals in the Generator

    REW Forum
    I currently use JRiver as my playback software. JRiver has a high quality parametric EQ that can be easily used with the filters generated by REW. However, the only way to currently test the filters with REW is to use the RTA feature and a Pink PN file. This doesn't give impulse response or...
  6. Comparision of 2 signals

    REW Forum
    REW seems to be a very good program but it seems to lack one vital function for Live Audio work. SMAART, SYSTune and others allow you to compare, in real time, the measured Speaker/ Microphone / Room response with a duplicate Reference signal and to then adjust the Speaker/room response for the...

I will post it here as well just in case some newcomers here also dont understand the difference. This post will help make this much clearer and hopefully...

  10. DIY splitting Audio and Video signals in HDMI

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    Is it possible to split the audio and video signals in HDMI connection? I mean in a passive way, like knowing the HDMI pin-out and building a Y-cable? What sort of AUDIO format would we end up with? SPDIF? AES?

  12. HT electronics that process signals under 15 HZ

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Some of us build subwoofers which can reproduce sound with a fairly flat response down to as low as 15 or even 10 HZ. What would be the point of building such a subwoofer if the source componants, amps and EQ's rolled off around 15 HZ, or if they were around -6 to -10db at 15 Hz. If this were...
