OK, i downloaded and installed the demo of TrueRTA... i've a problem, simple i'm sure:
"By default the program is monitoring only the left channel, normally you don't have to change this. Now enter the "Audio I/O" menu and check that both sampling frequencies are set to 48 kHz. If your soundcard doesn't support these, use something lower for example 41 kHz. Now using the same menu, start "Sound System Calibration". Follow the instructions and you should see two lines on your screen. First a line something like this."
OK, first of all... my soundcard input/output sampling frequencies can go up to 96khz, should i use that? or stick with the mentioned 48khz?
Second: where it says to use the same menu to start "sound system calibration" i do not have that in this menu. I've got "Line Input Calibration" and "line output calibration" only. Are these what is being referred to? When i click either of these, it is wanting me to get out a volt meter... which I so don't have. And hey, it doesn't include that in the list of 'what you need' in this guide for dummies either
so uh... that's where i'm stuck, for now. Do i need a volt meter? *confused* or am i looking in the wrong place?
FYI: My soundcard is an SB Audigy, i'm connecting an RS Analog Meter (33-4050) with an Stereo 1/8 to RCA-Y cable to the same jack on the back of the Audigy as my headset mic (unplugged while messing with TrueRTA of course, no splitter there).
... I'm short on cables. Going to hit radio shack (source by circuit city here in canada) and buy some tomorrow, so i can actually get some measurements done.
Thanks a TON for any help you can provide, as i'm REALLY new at using this software, and audio 'tweaking' in general. ... Though i'm not a computer newbie, not at all, so that should help in the learning curve with this really thorough looking application!
