Please let me know what to read here to get an answer to my stupid question ))
The question is: while measuring REW by itself i had obtained a strange result. "Measuring by itself" means that i put a Soundflower2ch as an Output and Input device in REW's Preferences. Thus the sweep goes from REW's output to REW's input directly. Then I start measurement and received following (find .mdat attached).
The surprise is (at least): (i) the ringing IR, (ii) the SPL drop after 17 kHz. MacbookAir + MacOS 10.10.3 serve as a platform.
We try to find an answer in our domestic forum discussion, but failed. Where is my mistake hidden?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the pointers in this discussion. Unfortunately I've been prevented to go any further from the fact that Soundflower seems incompatible with OS X Mavericks.
Since OS X Mavericks 10.9 was released I have never got Soundflower to work at all. 1.6.6b seem to be completely incompatible as far as I can tell. I've just now tried the 1.6.7 and 2.0b2 builds available from fellow Github users discussed in the Github issue discussion Could someone please post a compliled binary for 1.6.7? (Issue #24) and none of the binaries that users have been kind enough to compile does work for me.
I've tried on different MacBook Pros, new installations, new disks and with new audio interfaces present, with 1.6.6b for years, but the results are always that if I send output from any source to soundflower I can't get it routed further to anywhere. The same with these new builds.
At the moment I have the 2.0b2 from above installed, which is recognized by SoundlfowerBed from 1.6.6b (No-one seems to have been able to compile that so far), but I can't do anything with it. Any source routed to soundflower seem to end there. On 10.6 Soundflower was very easy to use.
I can't move past this issue, so REW seems to be out of my reach as does FuzzMeasure as the current version 4 requires Yosemite, so for my home studio at least that's not working out. I bought the Dayton EMM6, but it doesn't seem I will be able to use it for any analysis with OS X.
I did manage to get sound into REW 5.1.13 without soundflower with my RME Babyface, but I got the same error messages as have been discussed both here and elsewhere likely due to the multiple inputs this audio interface has.
I'm open for suggestions if anyone has them. Thank you
Thank you for your response, Bouvin. That's interesting. What specific version did you use and from what source? Did you at all use LineIn or something else or was it straightforward to route audio from the input of your audio interface to soundflower?
I'll try this on an external Yosemite installation, as I want to try the FuzzMeasure demo anyway. I've only heard about REW before, but for regular use I might be interested in that. I really would like REW to work though. I've been needing Soundflower for other applications for a very long time, so to get it to work would be very welcome.
Thanks for the tip. But it would seem that this only is relevant for HDMI connections. When I attempt to make an aggregate and add my Babyface all I see are all the same 12 channels in as when I'm using it on its own.
I recently moved into a house with a dedicated home theater room . I decided to add two more subwoofers to make it a total of 4( identical servo subs). My question is related to calibrating and integrating this 4 subs to the rest of the speakers . I have a processor with a Dirac room measurement...
I'm finally getting around to spending some time with REW. The Coronavirus pandemic has me unable to work, so I've got some time on my hands. Unfortunately, my EMM-6 mic seems to have some issues. The output from the mic is dropping to the level of the noise floor below 300hz. Parts...
This is my first post on this forum, so I hope I have followed all of the posting rules. Sorry my first post is so long, but I have tried to include all of the necessary information.
I would appreciate some help with a problem I am having with dialog intelligibility in my home theater...
Firstly just to say what am amazing thing REW is, cannot believe such a high quality product is given away, amazing, I am so looking forward to learning what it can do and the impact on my system, thank you John for the amazing work in making it.
I am new to REW, I think I have it setup...
Has anyone used Superlux ECM 999 condenser mic for measurements ?
I am interested in the calibration file for this model.
If there is no calibration file available, can I calibrate it myself?
Have great day,
