Make sure your sample rate is set to 44.1 kHz.

But I can change the sample rate after the measurements to whatever I want, right ?
I'm working in my DAW ad 48 khz & my audio card outside the DAW also always on 48 khz.
Correct, once the measurements are done, you can set your sample rate to any value you wish.
44.1 kHz sample rate is necessary only for the measurement process, Reference 3 plugin will work at any common sample rate.
U always answer so fast, it's great !
Sam - please try to check your audio interface's sample rate settings in Windows Sound options, for both recording and playback. We've seen Windows set 48kHz or any other sample rate (even 32kHz) explicitly, without any notification about it to the user.
Head over to:
Sound->Playback Devices-> <your audio device main output> ->Properties->Supported Formats and/or Advanced
Sound->Recording Devices-> <your audio device main output> ->Properties->Supported Formats and/or Advanced
Make sure that the sample rate is 44.1kHz in every step there. In Supported Formats, I'd even suggest to un-check every box besides the 44.1kHz.
I have a Interface (allen&heath Qu32) - it works only in 48kHz - I wish an update to calibrate in 48kHz, is it a Problem - who works in 48kHz in this time ;)
Or can I calibrate the room with my onboard Card too and it doesen't matter later what Interface I plug in ?
I have the same problem and I see there is no solution posted...
Same here. I have the Allen&Heat Qu-Pac mixer/audio interface and it´s locked at 48 kHz. What do I do? Is it ok to use another soundcard just for the calibration process?
Yes, you can borrow an audio interface that works in 44.1 kHz to do the measurements (takes about 25 min) and then continue using your current setup after you have created a profile for your speakers.
What is the problem, to messure in 48kHz - why is it not possible - or in other Samplerates ? 48kHz is now almost standard
The Measure app is designed to locate the mic in the room in real time - it's an essential part of the measurement process and it only works with 44.1k, as the locating signals are designed to work with that particular sample rate setting.
This is poor. I also have an Allen and Heath QU24 which is fixed at 48KHz. PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ALGORITHMS TO BE ABLE TO WORK AT 48KHz TOO!
I am frustrated by this and it is not expected.
Please switch to 48/96 khz as most Systems run on those frequencies. I have an active Speaker System with a digital crossover that only runs on 48/96 khz. Most modern digital mixing consoles are also using these frequencies. As most interfaces are easily capable of multi usage of sampling rates it would make sense to run your measurement sw on a frequency that is usable for all kinds of setups.
Also the lack of a simple input of the distance between speakers is a problem. if the measurement isn't working in this particular case there should be a workaround to fill in the distance manually because it is already possible to edit it in a small range. Please change this
Perfect solution. Cristoph for the WIN!
Still no fix. If the algorithms only work at 44.1KHz, then build in an internal sample rate converter to knock it down to 44.1KHz, Do the analysis then up-sample it to 48KHz on the way out. My DAW does all of this internally without breaking a sweat, please get Measure to do the same so that I can actually use the software I've paid for :(
I'm also amazed by constrain to 44.1 khz because I have audigy with kx drivers which only works in 48.
Solution to use other sound card is poor because here we cancel all bumps in sound pipe and no one knows which is by soundcard and which is by speakers because average user have poor sound quality sound card.
Also Feature request could be to manualy alter generated curve as in Dirac Live but 48 kHz is more important
Hey guys,Due to the nature of the measurement mechanics, we have to employ a single sample rate value throughout the process.Upsampling and downsampling conversion have also been considered but it was concluded that would inhibit the process and distort the data.The 44.1 kHz was chosen for the initial development, due to it being compatible with most interfaces.Regarding the measurement with an alternate interface. It should not be a cause for much worry as most such devices have solid-state preamps and would not introduce any audible coloration.
For anyone (especially people with A&H mixers): Just plug output of computer soundcard to the mixer, and then from mixer to the computer port on the back of the motherboard. Let the mixer do the hard work SoundID cannot do with sample rates. A couple of 3.5mm <--> XLR cables and you're golden. Much cheaper than getting another interface.
