Topic: assess raw playback signal without / before audio processing (EQ APO)
I want to monitor audio output under Windows with Digicheck. That works fine generally.
But I use EQ Apo to be able to filter the audio output on system level for my monitors or headphones. All processing I do on the EQ Apo level are reflected in the output signal feed to Digicheck. Is there a way to use Digicheck on signals without the influence of the audio processing I use via Equalizer Apo?
Could be by configuring DigiCheck to grab the audio signal before this goes to EQ Apo (if that is possible)?
Or could be by using DigiCheck in a DAW on the audio signal itself inside the DAW, before handed over to EQ Apo? Or by any other means...?
I tried if I can route the system audio to an output channel and via Loopback an input channel. That works, but also reflects the audio processing made with EQ Apo -- so seems to get the same processed signal as an input like when choosing "Playback" directly as the source for DigiCheck.
Current workaround is to disable all EQ Apo audio processing to be able to have the correct evaluation in DigiCheck, but of course then I loose the (significant) optimization for the monitor output I listen too. :-(
