Here is a 0-300 sweep with 20db increments and 1/6th smoothing - almost perfectly flat
Same graph with 5 db increments and 1/12 smoothing
Same with 5db increments and no smoothing.
This is good information to know because when I first used my Omnimic, I ran a FR with 1/6 smoothing and it looked pretty good as you posted above. I thought, wow, my room is pretty good I don't have must tweaking to do. Then I ran it again with no smoothing and it looked like snaggle toothed witch...just like you posted above and I thought...dagnabit...my room sucks and I have lots of work to do to get it smoother I've never run 1/12 smoothing but I'd imagine it will be between 1/6 and none but the question is....
Wouldn't no smoothing be the best in terms of "truly" seeing what's going on in your room instead of 1/12?
