I want to get into DRC and have read the big thread on here about it, and also a Roon blog on it (DRC for less than $100). The outcome I’m after is to measure and correct the three the Roon endpoints that I have in my home using convolution filters in Roon.
I’m trying to put together a list of everything that I will need. Here’s my list so far:
- Computer (Windows or Mac)
- Software (e.g. REW)
- USB audio device
- Measuring microphone
- Interconnect cables
(1) and (2) are fine to understand for me. It’s (3) to (5) that I’m unclear on. The USB audio device that I’m considering is the Focusrite Scarlett Solo (3rd gen). This connects to my computer via USB. For the measuring mic I’ll need an XLR cable connecting the mic to the Focusrite.
How does the audio system play tones sent by REW? It’s the connection to my audio system that I’m unclear about.
