when trying to run any measurement I get this error: "Impulse peak is not where it should be, the measurement may have been corrupted" I have used REW in the past (quite a long time ago), I have recently changed my interface to an apogee ensemble. Had the error in ver4, so just updated to 5.01. no luck, tried calibrating the sound card and had the same error. looked at other posts and tried everything else I could think of. hopefully It's operator error! Please help

Mac Pro
OS 10.6.8

> REW won't work on a Mac that is using a soundcard that is either multichannel ( more than 2 inputs ) or is FireWire based ( it's a JAVA Mac problem with no resolution in sight ) .

> Typically , a simple USB based , 2-chnl soundcard will work properly with REW .

I was using a M-Audio Multi-channel Firewire Interface in the past that worked - I do remember it being quite a chore to get it going though - maybe I just got lucky. hmmm.

Hi,

Is there bug report/support request submitted to Apple about this multichannel and firewire audio interface issue with Java? It would be interesting to know whether this might be fixed in near future.

Apple have discontinued support for Java, it should be taken over by Oracle. I reported the bugs about 2 years ago, no response and no action.

What a bummer. Just spent the whole morning installing software, reading instructions and calibrating equipment just to find out that it wont work with a Mac using a multi channel interface. Sigh. A heads-up in the otherwise excellent manual would have been great.
