RoomEQWizard Crashes When Opened - Intel Mac - OSX Leopard 10.5.8
What to do? :dontknow:

Not sure what the problem is because I have an Intel Core 2 Duo Macbook running 10.5.8 and I just redid my calibration file for my soundcard because I got a new one. Other than it always telling me something about my impulse responses not being where they should be when I do a measurement REW runs fine for me.
If it tells you that, it is not running fine, just because there is a curve doesn't mean it reflects reality...
What does it mean when I get this message? Since it had always done this to me but ultimately gave me measurements I assumed it was just a quirk.

Another potentially related issue on Macs is a workaround I stumbled on a while back to get the measurement process going. Steps below:

Hit Measure -> Next -> Next (again)
Change buffer from 32k to 64k and then back to 32k
Hit Cancel
Then hit Measure and continue as normal.

Someone in a thread maybe a year back posted this series of moves to get REW to work on his Mac and it worked for me as well. If I don't do this I don't get any levels.

I guess I'll have to try using XP in Boot Camp and see if it works for me.

I think the problem may have been my calibration was done at 48k instead of 44.1k with my previous soundcard. When I did my calibration for my new us-122 there was a very noticeable improvement in frequency response when I did it at 44.1, so there may be an issue with 48k on my computer. Either way I did some measurements today and am no longer getting impulse response warnings. I'm also noticing that my measurements are mirroring what I'm getting with my XTZ Room Analyzer system.

Now that I've done a new calibration file how do I make REW stop looking for my old one upon startup and just load the new one?
I did the 'Make Cal' process five times now with my new Tascam us-122, but every time I open REW it says it can't find the UCA202/Xenyx 802 cal file (which was my previous setup). I always have to manually load the new cal file for my soundcard, the mic cal still loads by itself.

Anyway here's the difference between my calibrations when I do it as 48k vs the much flatter 44.1

The 48k one drops of before 20hz
