Room EQ Wizard - Free
Acoustic Measurement and Analysis Software
REW is a Java application for measuring room acoustics and analysing room and loudspeaker responses.
It includes tools for generating test signals; measuring SPL and impedance; measuring frequency and impulse
responses; generating phase, group delay and spectral decay plots, waterfalls, spectrograms and energy-time
curves; generating real time analyser (RTA) plots; calculating reverberation times; calculating Thiele-Small
parameters; determining the frequencies and decay times of modal resonances; displaying equaliser responses
and automatically adjusting the settings of parametric equalisers to counter the effects of room modes and
adjust responses to match a target curve. If you are currently doing any audio mixing or recording it is very important to know and adjust for natural room acoustics. You will be hard pressed to make a descent mix in a room without dealing with the natural sound characteristic's of that environment.
