i am a complete noob to the software so chances are it'll be something obvious or stupid, but when taking measurements or playing any of the sweeps or waves from the generator along comes with it a digital type distortion from the right speaker which renders any measurement i plan to take futile.

any thoughts?

And it's fine from the left speaker?

How have you connected the line-out from the soundcard - with a Y-splitter?

no they're 1/4 inch jack outs adapted into phono to run through an amp. everything else that runs through it is fine though, it's just REW

Generally, the right channel line-in and line-out of the soundcard are used, with the left channel left open.

The right channels line-out mono signal is then fed to your receiver (or in your case to your amplifier directly).

Are you saying, when you connect that mono signal to the left channel of the amplifier it is fine, and when connected to the right it is distorted?

What kind of sound card do you have? I am wondering if you are trying to use both the left and right soundcard outputs to drive both sides of your stereo amp. As bruce said, you will need to use the right side line out from your soundcard and then use a splitter to split it into left and right amp inputs.


to run through an amp
If you feed the amp directly, you may not see the effect of the receivers EQ or crossover which would normally influence the output.
