I'm new to REW and I'm trying to gain more knowledge on how to correctly use this software. So, excuse me if my questions have been already covered in previous posts (2,863 as of this moment).
I'm using a Dell laptop with Windows 7 Pro 32 bit with HDMI output.
REW installed is 5.01 Beta 17
Mic is an OmniMic V2 with calibration file
My system is a 11.2 setup. I'm using a Denon 4311CI as pre/pro and I have external amps to drive the speakers. Here is the room that I'm working with:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Yes, it is a very live room. And that is one of the main reasons I'm coming here for help in order to tame first reflections at the walls.
OmniMic V2 calibration file - Do I need to change the extension of the calibration file from .omm to .txt? I can see that REW actually recognizes the .omm as a valid file. But, just wondering on an early post at this thread that was recommending to change the extension.
Room treatments - can someone explain or provide a link (easy to understand for a person that is just getting familiar with REW) on how to use identify the first reflections points at the walls?
As mentioned before, I do have a live room? First action for me is to buy a large and thick area rug to take care of the reflections out of the floor (I can't remove the coffee table as much as I wish ..........WAF).
I purchased a box of OC703 and pine wood to build my acoustic treatments. But, before going crazy and hanging them at the walls, I want to ensure they will be installed in the right place. Hence the reason I'm asking for some guidance/instructions.
Thanks in advance!
