Hello guys! Need some serious help setting up my mic and REW. This is not a typical usb mic with hdmi connection. Let me say my Rotel 1068 prepro is non hdmi so it will be analog instead. Here is summary if what I have done so far with the connections.
I am using non usb mic....Dayton Emm-6 XLR that connects to the Focusrite 2i2 usb interface, and then that is connected to laptop via usb cable.
Outputs of the focusrite 2i2 both Left and Right are conncted to my Rotel prepro Tuner's inputs Left and Right. So 2 seperate TS/RCA connections. I get sound when playing music from laptop using the focusrite sound card instead of laptops sound card so that part is good.
What I'm confused on is settings for REW....just downloaded latest beta 5.19 and so far I have set preferences to Java and default device for both input and output since I made my default device focusrite soundcard control panel settings.
Now where I think I'm lost is the input/output....output is greyed out, input lets me choose between Right or Left only. So does all this seem right as far as all connections go and settings in REW?
For those of you using external usb device like focusrite.....do you turn your laptop's volume control to max and also the focusrite monitor volume to max as well and just use Rotel's preamp to add more volume.....or should the focusrite volume on device be halfway and up the Master volume on the Rotel prepro?
Once I know 100% I got it all setup correctly, I'm assuming I need to calibrate it...I have analog RS meter for reference.
Again thanks guys and I'm sure I will be asking TOO MANY questions in here. LOL
