The biggest problem with laptops is that their audio inputs are often for use with microphones, and not with mic preamps. This is easily and inexpensively circumvented by obtaining an inexpensive USB audio interface, such as the Behringer UCA 202,

or a inexpensive USB audio interface with built in mic preamp such as the ART Dual Pre:

Probably, and this is not difficult to measure. The Rightmark analyzer can measure the record/play frequency response of any sound card that has line inputs and outputs. I have a Dell laptop I bought at least five years ago and its built-in sound card is fine for playback. (Though there's no line input so I had to buy an external card for room measuring.) But if you want to be sure, there's nothing wrong with calibrating REW either!

Thanks for that.

Would these work with a USB mic (Omnimic)?

Thank you

The laptop doesnt have a line in just a mic in.

So i can't measure the soundcard with this setup, is this right?

I wonder how accurate the Omnimic mic / txt file is, any way of checking this?

Thank you

The Omnimic would completely bypass the inputs on either of the USB alternatives I suggested, which is just fine.

Would a Steinberg C1 work?
