Hi,

Out of the blue is not working good,

The Microphone captures an even curve with a lot of subs and top end ..all in the extremes. :cry:


Then when is doing the auto cal. only seems to process one side of the speaker. just blinking the right speaker and at the end do not do any correction to any speaker...

did another capture and I put the mic random, and same curve..


what is wrong??

Thanks

Hi,

That curve is just the background noise level of the microphone/room, not an actual measurement signal. Typically this can happen if for some reason the recording of the measurement signal goes wrong or the microphone is damaged. It is really strange as everything was working perfectly earlier.

Have you tried to unplug everything, reboot your computer and try to run the calibration again?
