Soundblaster Live! 24-bit USB External Setup

REW (SB Live! 24-bit external)


I have a Creative 24 bit external soundcard but have been unable to calibrate it despite messing with all the various settings there was always some feedback. The only way I can get a normal looking curve was to use the internal card as output and the external card as input. This gave me a calibration curve similar to that for an internal card.
I then tried a sweep for the sub but it seems with limited success :scratch:
I've spent all day on this and achieving very little so far. Can anyone help?

Just to add some more information to this thread.
I was suffering terrible problems when setting up the soundblaster 24bit external because I was using single phono to mono 3.5mm plugs to connect to the line in/out.
I changed those to stereo 3.5mm plug to dual left/right phono sockets and connected to the Right sound channel on both line in and out (should have followed the diagram exactly, instead of being a cheapskate):nono:
Things seem to be working as expected now.

Hope this helps someone. :T
