How does the True Audio RTA compair to the Dayton Omni Mic system.
This question was asked before and the True Audio RTA was compaired to the Goldline RTA not the Omni mic.
Looks to me the software does pretty similar things, although details differ.To me the hardware requirements/configurations are quite different. The Dayton system provides a USB mic, but that means you are limited to the max length of a USB cable (which is I think about 15 ft) to the computer. This can be a big drawback if you need to remotely locate the mic from the PC. Each mic has its own cal file which can be downloaded and entered into the software which is nice.The Dayton system also relies on the playback of specifically formulated files from a CDROM through the sound system. A problem if you don't have a CD playback device. You can rip files from the CD to the computer and play them back through the soundcard but this could create cal problems for precise measurements.The True Audio system requires the purchase of outboard USB pre-amps and a calibrated mic. It is unclear whether the cal files for the Dayton mics, for example, can be entered into the software like they can with the Dayton system. The signal sources like pink noise, sine wave, etc are supplied by the software but need to be played though the soundcard, which requires calibration. They can also be output to a USB preamp which may be preffered as it bypasses the sound card (but adds cost to the system#.And finally, PE only sells the basic 1/3 octave version. If you want higher precision, you need to pay up to about $100 for the advanced version. If you look at a good quality outboard preamp, XLR mic cable, a Dayton EMM-6 mic, and the premium upgraded software, you are looking at about the same cost as the Dayton system #@ about $300). You also have to buy interconnects to the sound system you are testing. But with this system you are not limited by a CD player and can run long mic cables from the mic to the pre-amp.The Dayton system, although less flexible, is faster to set up and use. Closer to plug and play and you don't need to mess with cal of or use of a computer sound card.

What's the difference between this and Dayton OmniMic?
I understand that OmniMic comes with a microphone, but on the software side, do the programs do the same thing? I am building speakers and want to test their performance. What will I need? Thanks.
The difference between the Dayton Omnimic and the Gold Line DSP-30 Portable Digital RTA is that the Gold Line DSP-30 is a self contained and highly accurate piece of test equipment that when used in conjunction with an accurate calibrated mic and pink noise generator will yield true pro audio measurements and accuracy.The Dayton Omnimic is a good piece of equipment and software that can and is affected by the laptop's sound card and interconnection cables.The included mic is a little lower in quality than the $99.00 DBX cal. mic. Combining these items do not provide the accuracy possible from the Gold Line DSP-30 Portable Digital RTA. It pretty much depends on your need for true accuracy from a real time analyzer.Good Luck

I would like to know if this software uses the mic calibration files for Dayton EMM-6 mics to compensate for FR errors? I could not find anything on this on the True Audio website or FAQs, execpt for a comment that if the individual mic is not calibrated, then don't use a file at all. This makes no sense to me.
Plug all into ypur tape in/out on your receiver, then plug-in 'aux' your Computer, go to you-boob, and listen to some Black Rebel Motorcycle Club 100- 110 videos, and you'll ge the sound you want.... Make sure your mic. is a dual....You probably have a 'hum', not "dead-silent", and THAT will misconstrue A LOT of things in this sense. Try a Power Module w/ an isolator, or turn-off ALL fans as well as flourescent lighting, and even 'dimmers'.... I've had to do ALL of that o get the 'hum' out of the system as is...

How do I copy onto my new computer-I lost the original disc
I really enjoy this product. The Real Time Analyzer software's oscilloscope feature is a bonus as well as it's spectrum analyzer capability. My problem is that I just got a new computer and I want to transfer the program from my old laptop to my new laptop. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
I think you will need PE tech help for this. It isn't copying, it is also installation.
