Cavern QuickEQ export guide to StormAudio

Setup

Before making any measurements with QuickEQ, disable or remove all EQ sets you have in the processor.

Measurement

Complete a measurement. If you need help with it, read the setup guide. After measurement, choose Export to StormAudio from the Export/import menu. Select a folder to export the EQ files and delay/level information to. If you choose a folder that contains a previous measurement, it will be overwritten.

Importing the QuickEQ configuration files

Open the Main Speakers page.

Select Edit next to Theater.

Go to the Delay, level, limiter and polarity tab.

The Cavern QuickEQ - exported for StormAudio.txt file will contain the delay and level information for each chanel. Manually enter those values on this page. If you already have delays or levels set, add them together. To prevent over-delaying with each measurement, you should only set them for your first measurement and never again, unless you change hardware or move channels. In that case, you should start the measurement with the delays and gains reset to 0. If the Correct polarities setting is enabled, "Switch polarity" might appear for some channels in the txt file. If it's present, change the value of the channel's checkbox under Polarity.

Set the EQ for each channel. Click on the channel's icon on the current page, and it will take you to the EQ page, where you can import QuickEQ's filters for that channel with REW import.

If an EQ is already set, choose the option to overwrite it. Save the EQ when you're done.

Measuring other channels than 7.1

First, disable the 7.1 EQ on the Edit page of the current Theater with the button next to for each channel on the 7.1 layer. If On is greyed out, the EQ is disabled. You have to do this, because the other channels have to be arranged to the position of the 7.1 layer. Take a screenshot of your channel mapping on the Main speakers page for an easier rollback, then select Output mapping.

Select the other 8 channels to measure. Assign them to the positions of the 7.1 layer, remembering which one is which. Don't assign a subwoofer to the position of a non-LFE channel.

After you save the new mapping, make the measurement again, but don't apply the configuration. Revert the mapping to its original state, then apply the measurement to the actually measured channels. For multiple subwoofers, if you're not familiar with how to measure them, apply the same EQ to each one (they will be measured together), and only care about the other channels while measuring others than the 7.1 base. When all channels are measured, re-enable the EQ for the 7.1 channels and align the gains of each differently measured layer.
