Not exactly, I thought about Tascam US-122 PRO USB 2.0 SOUND CARD, for exampleYou should probably be more specific as to what cards you're interested in.
Is it the Tascam US-144 and the M-Audio Fast Track Pro?
Sounds good ... I agree with you, not sure if expensive device is a must...These are fairly expensive soundcards, both with XLR mic preamp and phantom power. Is that a must?
REW will operate with very inexpensive cards and an SPL meter if you're not looking for high end...
Looks like that card would work fine.... Note the only calibration files we offer for mics is for the Behringer ECM8000.I thought about Tascam US-122 PRO
I have read a few things JohnM (author REW) has said about OS-X and feel you should ensure REW will work OK on your machine first before spending a bunch on a soundcard.when we use laptop and Mac OS X
Thank you to your advice, I appreciate your feed back.Definately get the calibrated mic from Cross Spectrum. I got an uncalibrated ECM-8000, then when I read about the spread among samples and when I recently upgraded subs, I got the calibrated one. There was quite a difference between the calibrated mic's curve and the generic one posted here (to be fair, it was based on one sample - Sonnie's I think.)
See here for the reason behind having to be a member since August 1st to qualify for the present 'special offer'.I'm a bit confused, because I'm a newbie forum user and seems to be impossible to buy any calibrated mic from Cross Spectrum, special offer.
