    REW Forum
    Everything was going fine, I was going through Jerry's guide step by step. But then ASIO would not recognize both at the same time, my Umik mic and my Denon 1911 receiver. At one time, it showed the AVR and all 8 channels. And at another time it showed my Umik mic. But I just can't, for some...

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    So I'm venturing into a REW & Umik to measure my sub. Is it worth the extra few dollars to buy a UMIK from cross spectrum (as opposed to one from mini dsp)? What are the advantages? Thanks!
