Superb Matt... over 2,000 views.

@Todd Anderson ... have we shared this on Facebook?

This would be good at Axpona... probably couldn't get a big enough room to seat everyone.

Thanks so much Sonnie. The gist of this presentation is what I did at AXPONA, I modified it for this event. I will do a similar presentation this year at AXPONA and I will try to partner with a sponsor to do live demo's. I think this year will be really exciting. For the demo, we can even show how REW can be used for EQ and Subwoofer integration in a very indepthmanner.

A lot of what you are probably looking for is answered in the supporting documents of REW.

For example here:
http://www.roomeqwizard.com/help/help_en-GB/html/index.html
and
https://www.avnirvana.com/resources/getting-started-with-rew-a-step-by-step-guide.19/

@John Mulcahy is the developer of REW and is the best person to answer detailed technical questions. You are welcome to ask some specific questions in the REW forum and John can answer those.

Still, I'm amazed how much more popular this video is than the Geddes video. It goes to show what a draw instructional videos around REW are like. I need to look into doing some more REW instructional videos, as clearly people want them. I was thinking that screen capture videos might also be really helpful, with a narration. I need to talk to John, the software I have works by capturing specific software and every time a new window ups up in REW, the video blanks out that window. As such, I can't capture all my actions. I probably need to find a different software with more flexibiltiy.

Google translated: "New interesting, but my knowledge of the English language is quite limited and I can't follow .... it's my problem, but I think it's a pretty common problem ...."

Maybe someone who speaks Italian can verify this.
