Hope your happy Reece!




WEll Im still at square one.. Ive tried to mess with settings in the program to get these nice graphs I see ppl getting but something is just not working for me, and a few others from what I hear as well.. SO.. This is where im at, - a few 100 hairs that I happened to have 8 hrs ago

Just opening REW




Opening up the Soundcard settings



Going thru the process




continuing



Continuing again.. Input levels drop




Finishing up before the graph




The graph itself.. weird....




And after the graph was plotted I hit the "measure" box in the upper left hand corner and got this I believe I had this set from 0-250 hz on this one

Im still learning myself, but I know that everyone says you are not supposed to use the Microphone input. What sound card are you using?

Make sure "monitor" is set to "off" on the uc202. I used "usb codec" for the output device, and "speaker" as the output. Then I used "usb codec" for the input, and "default input" as the input. I have WinXP and there wasn't an option to adjust the line input with the uc202. But I just upped the output to match the "out" meter while calibrating the sound card, and it worked fine.


Edit: You have an rca cable going from the right channel of the output to the right channel of the input for calibrating the sound card, correct?

yessir... i think monitor has been on for the most part, Im sure I tried it off, but ill try your settings.. Do both of your inputs ( L/R ) register on the calibration even tho your only looping 1 channel?

On the tabs where the graph is. After the calibration is ran Click on "measured". Thats what you want to look at not the filter adjust. See how that looks and let us know.

And burning it is an option.. I thought this was gonna be like, Download the calibration to REW, hook up the UCA , loop the channels and presto.. Its calibrated.. What a crock of **** idea that was

HAHA, i dont think you were around in full force when i ran into the same issues. I got the same responses your getting even over on HTWHACK i mean SHACK. And they all got me to the same place nowhere at all. Maybe try donwloading that software someone else mentioned to you or purchasing the TRUERTA. I may be trying that out myself soon.

I wouldn't get any reading on the input if the monitoring was switched to "on".


nvm, mine only registered the right channel when "measuring" to calibrate the sound card.

As I said above. It should have the option in the output, and input drop down menus for just "USB audio Codec". Yours says Speaker(usb audio codec), and Microphone(usb audio codec). Doesn't if have just "usb audio codec" to select?

Hrm..........ok,


I was personally thinking you were posting the wrong graph as well since the "Filter Adjust" tab was still highlighted in the previously posted graphs.


That is indeed looking a little weird. I'm not totally sure what to say besides have you read, and attempted execution of certain methods specified by the help file?

But either its not correct or I have some issue with my laptop settings.. going on 10 hrs now.. seriously not ****ing happy

I don't blame you for not being very happy. I'm the one who's borrowing Reece's soundcard, and I haven't been able to get REW to work right either.
