What sample rate should I be using for measurements?

    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.

    Hi,

     

    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.

    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?

    Hi, 

     

    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

    Hi Werner, 

    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 :(
