Looks like I spoke too soon last night on my mac post. Now I am having issues...

After running the speaker calibration, the app starts "calculating frequency response". Figured all was well, and I went to bed. This morning it was STILL running. So I try it in parallels, wow no go there. There is obviously some serious issues running it that way.

So I try on a mac mini I have, but the response appears corrupted. Tried the java 6 beta version available on ADC. No luck, the curve is a bit smoother, but still not right.

So I am now in bootcamp on my macbook pro (c2d), figured we would get to the root of the problem this way. I have line out plugged into line in and run the soundcard measurement. The response is much more linear than either in osx or parallels. I get a bit of a warble beginning above 10khz, but it appears to be +-2db, so probably acceptable.

Then "calculating frequency response" pops up. An hour later it is still burning a hole in my screen.

What gives? Is this actually a problem on MBP systems no matter which OS they are running? I must be missing something.


Java 1.5 and 1.6 have been tried...

There might be a clue in the log files in your home directory, they are named roomeqwizardx.log.txt where x is 0..9, the lowest number is the most recent startup. However it is probably best to wait for the new version and go from there, I've run it on a Mac Mini and it worked OK but there were clicks in the generated audio, so work to be done on that - no crashes or hangs though.

Thats it, nothing else in the logs unfortunately.

BTW: is there any way to output the recorded signal to a wav file? I suspect there are not only clicks in the produced signal, but in the recorded signal as well. Randomly I will get the "clipping detected" message even though I heard nothing in the playback and the inputs are set well below clipping.

The output can't be written to a wav file, but you can see what REW tried to output and what it captured by selecting the Scope graph.

I am using Room EQ Wizard on Windows XP with Java 1.6.0 and I get the same problem: Stuck on "Calculating frequency response...".

There is nothing of note in the logs.

Any ideas?

Just fyi, even though it says "calculating freq response" the calculation appear to be done. It just has the notification box up. I have duplicated it with 1.6 under both xp and os x on my macbook pro.

I would use the old thinkpad for measurement with java 1.5, but the response curve is a nice constant line from... 45-8khrz. Nothing at all above or below :) Talk about a bad sound card!

OK...thanks...

I was using a laptop too at first but had all sorts of issues. It is working better since I switched.
