Trying to use REW with Toshiba Satellite laptop (Win 10) and Galaxy CM-140. Have read/watched multiple tutorials but still struggling!
Can someone recommend an external sound card/interface that works well with the CM-140.
Thanks very much,
Donald

You could use pretty much anything with the CM-140, it is a line level signal. It should also work well with the mic/line input on your laptop, assuming it has one. There's no reason you should need an external interface if your laptop has an audio input already.

John:
It has a 3.5mm mic input and 3.5mm headphone jack: that's all I need? I seem to recall reading that most laptop sound cards are inadequate, but if that works, great (if so, I'll donate!).
Thank you!

Most laptop soundcards are perfectly fine for audio measurement. There was a period some years ago where laptops sometimes had mic-only inputs but mic/line is the norm.
