  1. Soundcard Calibration - Failed!

    REW Forum
    Hi, I'm not succeed in a sound card calibration. I don't know why. I've already turned off the monitor mode and use a loop-back cable. I set the speaker level or output at 100% (picture 1) and microphone level or input at 100% too (picture 2). But I got the dB level at only approx -35 dB...
  2. Soundcard .cal file setting?

    REW Forum
    I've used REW with a UMIK-1 to get a few readings to start, but my question comes from my prior attempt to use REW with a UCA202. I had it setup and created a .cal calibration file for it and config'd REW by pointing to it. I've since moved/renamed folders and when I open REW it tells me it...

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I joined primarily so I could download Room EQ Wizard. Before I do, I need to know if I NEED new equipment to run it, or if what I have is likely to work at least to get me started. I should note, I have no signal processing in my home setup. I'm largely a stereo guy, though I do run my HDTV...
  7. A question on using REW without soundcard output

    REW Forum
    I see that the requirements for REW include a soundcard but not that you must use the soundcard output to be able to use REW to measure room/system response. When reading posts on how to use REW they only show use of soundcard output. Does this mean the only way to use REW is to output via my...

    Hello, To make some measurements, my mic will be connected to a mixer (to use the phantom power).
