I'm using REW for the first time and I'm having a few problems. First, here is my setup:
iMac, umik-1, Denon X4000, REW (V5.01 Beta 22)
The mac is connected to the AVR's AUX1 input via the mac's headphone output (using a 3.5mm to RCA adaptor)
Here are the issues I'm having:
1. Only extremely rarely does REW recognise that the mic is attached (and hence available for use). It seems like there is some sort of cable/connection problem as just moving the mic causes the connection to be lost. I'm using the USB cable that came with the mic.
2. To test the connection between my mac and AVR I tried playing some music. It sounded really bad - very noisy. Playing the same song via a USB stick (ie bypassing the mac completely) the same song sounds amazing - crystal clear. What is likely causing this? Is it the cable from my mac to AVR? The cable is 4-5m long.
