Audio Test and Measurement Software

This is where we talk about testing, measuring and repairing things. Sometimes we have to repair the equipment we use to test, measure and repair other things. It's an endless cycle of fixing the broken things we need to fix other broken things.

Audio Test and Measurement Software

Post by mediatechnology » Tue Aug 06, 2019 12:48 pm

These are some audio test and measurement links I've collected.

I use AudioTester, K-Meter, Rightmark, Visual Analyzer and YMEC.
My "go-to" application is AudioTester.

There is a looong thread at GDIY about Room EQ Wizard (referred to as "REW"). It seems to have matured into a full-blown testing suite for a lot more than checking speaker response. It's totally free, with the option to make a $$ donation.

I have a Dell Win XP laptop I keep so I can still use my very decent, old scanner (no driver support from HP on anything newer...another topic for another day) and TubeCAD (which is a 32 bit app). REW seems to run OK on XP, so I'm thinking of getting a Sapphire USB Interface which Ian Bell mentioned in the thread.

Seems like a "poor man's Audio-1".

Thanks Brian.
I added the link to Room EQ Wizard to the original post.
I had looked at REW a long time ago and should have another look.
At the time it was acoustic-oriented.

REW does require Java to run which is pretty much a dead end for XP.
Java stopped updating on XP over a year ago and it may not have a bright future for Win 7, 8 or 10.
