REW and Umik Mic setup
« on: March 15, 2022, 04:34:23 PM »
Hi All

This might have been discussed or written on other forums but all the threads I come across REW needs to be downloaded onto the PC doing the music playback and so does the MIC or am I getting this wrong.

is there a simple tutorial to follow to do measurements?

Or is it a simple as loading REW onto my laptop connecting mic to the same laptop and then playing a specific audio file through LMS/FOOBAR while REW measures?

It's all run from your PC/laptop. REW generates the tones, there's no need for any other audio source.

So I would need to connect that laptop with REW installed to that amp/dac.

Yes, you'd connect the mic up to the laptop and the laptop to the output device.

There are some decent tutorials on Youtube.  Just search for REW or Room EQ Wizard

This is a good one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_87-hK1org8
