Using Room Correction is simple. While on the Enhancements tab, check the
option to enable it, click the Settings button, and follow these steps:
1. When the Room Calibration Wizard has loaded, click the Next button on
the opening screen.
2. Select the microphone input you would like to use for the test. Make sure
that you have a microphone plugged in to that input on your sound card.
You can use any microphone for the calibration. If you have a studio-quality,
omnidirectional microphone, check This Is A Flat-Rate, Professional Studio
Microphone. Click Next to proceed.
3. Position your microphone where you sit in your room. Make sure you
elevate the microphone to roughly the height of your ears. For example,
it is better to place your microphone on the armrest of a chair instead of
the seat. Also make sure that your microphone is pointing straight up.
When you are ready for the calibration test, click Next. It is best to leave
the room when the test is running.
4. When the test is finished, click Next to view the results.
5. The results of the test for each channel are displayed, as shown in Figure 11-3.
When you are ready to apply the settings, click Finish.
