Any chance your sound meter has an output jack somewhere ?

At least one of the room analysis packages (REW I think) is written in Java, but I think it expects the Oracle runtime - don't know if that would be a problem on the Nexus.

If the Java RT recognizes the mic & audio input logic on the Nexus then that should be enough to make the software happy, although there might be a teeny calibration issue.

Laptop & external mic seems like the no-pain solution.

Mine is that common Radio Shack meter, which i can no longer get in Canada in part because Radio Shack no longer exists.
I actually haven't used the meter in years now. Since setting up the HT, i haven't needed it for anything else.

I thought the RS meter had a line out jack, but I can't find mine so all I have to offer is vague memories and internet gossip... but both of those say "go look, it might have a jack".

Yeah, my RS meter has an RCA connection that says "Output."

So vague memories, internet gossip and CV *all* say you should go look for an output jack laugh

The old analogue RS Meter (33-2050) that I just won from ebay has a RCA Out connector on the side...

Hah. I have a new metric for telling if the room allows adequate imaging... if you can tell how far the piano is away from the microphone by triangulating the side-to-side movement of the piano sound as the pianist plays runs of notes up and down the keyboard.

My room currently only allows that with a couch cushion held over my head to block the first reflection point on the angled ceiling, but on the way home I picked up a cheap duvet and hardware to build a 1x2 frame.

The nice lady at the Walmart checkout looked at the duvet and asked if I was getting ready for winter. Apparently I managed to reinforce her emerging theory that males really were a different species.

New Metric?! Wow! When did that come out?! I missed it!

Wait, you're not talking about this, are you?



Dang.

Well, they are a "local band" (based in Toronto).

Nope, all the bass seems to be on the ground floor where hall, bathroom, bedroom and bedroom closet all meet. Nothing significant up in the loft, not even in the peak. Bass seems to increase a bit as I get closer to the floor in the loft but that is consistent with having max bass one story down.

I realized today that the bass buildup is not just under the peak in the loft ceiling but also midway along the length of the open area in the house, which I sort of expected to be a null rather than a peak. Auggh.

Getting tempted to haul everything outside where there are no walls, no room reinforcement, no peaks and no nulls, at least until winter comes or mice build nests in the M60s. No way I have time to start from scratch with a new layout. For now I'll just stand in the bedroom when I want bass.

I'm almost ready to consider port plugs, but not quite that desperate yet laugh

EDIT - Chesseroo, did you find the RS meter and if so did it have a jack ?
