  1. Enlarging the notes window for calibration measurement using loopback

    REW Forum
    I can't seem to enlarge the notes window for calibration measurement. I guess its kept intentionally small, to allow multiple measurements to be tabbed. When doing a loopback cal then there are a lot more details than the notes window size can show, especially for the soundcard setup. Yes I...

  4. [REQ]: Make the window controls a bit simpler to use for common use cases

    REW Forum
