Spend some time at the HT Shack forums. I think the program only works with a few, specific audio cards. I got the external SoundBastard one, and it works just fine.

Yeah, I was able to download it, but am having problems with the soundcard thing. Shoot, it looks like I'm gonna have to actually read the instructions. . .

I'm hoping I can get this program to work!

The test tones were seriously wonky when I tried it. Looks like the excitement was premature. \:\(

That's not good news. I've got to pick up some cables before I try this out.

Sean,

Any progress on placing your meter in the sweet spot and running frequency response measurements before/after?

You'd be doing a great service to many of us.

Not yet. The thought of taking all those doodads down and putting them back up makes me realize how lazy I am.

Don't give up hope. I'll try to get the task tomorrow.

Yes, I know. But think of all of the "Sean" effigies that board members will bow down to in honor of your research \:\) .

Alright. Tomorrow for sure. I thought about it while making a drink for myself. I should have been thinking about what movie I'm about to watch. . .

Oh, the decisions. . .

Okay, Tex, I feel terribly guilty for not getting this done. The day after my above post was a day one of my housemates decided to have a study group. All day. \:\(

It's still on my list of things to do. I came across some info, though, that makes me think about this. The type of acoustic treatment I have is for something called modal ringing, which is something akin to echo--the old "clap your hands and listen" trick. Taming the ringing is not something one can measure with an SPL meter.

Things that make you go hmmmm. . .
