OK, so my med's are wearing off a bit, so let me try this again.
I cannot get the calibration of the levels (input and output) the same using the Soundblaster live external USB card. I can get it within about 6 db's but thats it. If I increase or decrease the volume on the computer, it decrease the volume on the left and right level's as well. I am using a Windows 7 computer and REW v 5.
Here is how I had it setup in REW.
Here is how I had it physically connected.
Now I changed the physical setup to this
Which resulted in my ability to calibrate it within a MUCH closer tolerance.
However all the calibrations still look wrong.
From what I read its because of the fact the SoundBlaster has a "monitor" setting that needs to be turned off, but I cant find it anywhere.....
I will have all day on Monday to play with REW as I am home alone with the baby, so whenever she doenst require my attention I will post and hopefully I can get things configured.
I am assuming that once the initial setup is done its fairly easy to take measurements in different rooms?
My plan is to take measurements in my main HT to get my mains and sub integrated right. Then just for giggles I want to look at how bad my 2 channel room is. Its a 11x10 room so I know room modes suck, but I am just curious about things, and if there are any placement things I can do to get it to sound better.
I plan to hopefully get a SMS-1 for my sub, but I have debated if I can get REW to work right getting a mini-dsp to play with integrating my mains and sub together better, since IIRC you can use REW to help you set EQ filters in the mini-dsp....
Anyway I wont ramble further, I am on some heavy pain meds...
And any suggestions on how to fix this would be MUCH appreciated.
