  • Bug fix: Changing the distortion graph X axis between generator and input for a stepped level measurement shifted the plot
  • Bug fix: The Linearity trace for a stepped level measurement was not drawn correctly if the Y axis was not SPL on startup

  • Bug fix: Impedance measurements did not go below 2 Hz even if the axis start was set lower
  • Bug fix: Periodic Noise sequences exported to WAV could overflow at rms levels above approx -6 dBFS. Note that using such high rms levels will cause clipping and affect the frequency response.

V5.20 RC3 5th December 2020
  • There is now an export menu entry to export the RT60 data for all current measurements as text to individual files or to a combined file. Data is only exported if it has been generated (which happens when it is first viewed), a quick way to generate the RT60 data for all measurements is to view the Overlay RT60 graph.
  • The limited range of the Impulse graph Offset t=0 dialog was causing some issues, so it has been changed to use a spinner that allows offsets of up to +/- 1 second to be entered, with 1 us changes when the spinner arrow buttons are used. To interactively adjust the t=0 offset click and drag the graph time axis.
  • Processor loading has been reduced during measurement sweep playback
  • 32-bit sample width will be used with Java drivers if the interface offers that. Only macOS and Linux are affected as the Windows Java runtime only offers 16-bit data (use ASIO for full sample resolution on Windows).
  • Bug fix: RT60 calculation with time-reversed filtering could cause incorrect impulse envelope plot
  • Bug fix: The T60M figure (RT60 Decay model T60 value) appeared twice in RT60 text exports

  • If no IPV4 addresses are obtained for an 8c use any IPV6 address it returns
  • Bug fix: Made the beta 57 Java driver changes apply to macOS only, on Windows they could cause test signals to be truncated if the replay chain had a large buffering delay
  • Bug fix: If using a USB mic via an ASIO wrapper and the mic was disconnected and reconnected while REW was running REW would believe the mic input volume setting was zero and increase SPL readings accordingly

  • Bug fix: Exception when shutting down if no measurements had been made with beta 57
V5.20 beta 57 27th July 2020

V5.19 beta 11 21st July 2018

  • Use FFT bin frequencies in stepped sine measurement
  • Added 88.2k and 96k sample rates when using Java drivers. Make sure the input and output devices are configured in the OS to operate at the rate selected in REW, otherwise the OS will resample between the selected rate and the rate at which the input or output device is actually running.
