Adding Room EQ to Rogue Amoeba's SoundSource

- Download and install the latest version of SoundSource.
- Download and install the AU version of the MathAudio Room EQ plug-in. SoundSource doesn't support the direct monitoring which is necessary for the room measurement, but you can use free AU Lab program for the measurement. The measurement process is as follows:
- Download and install AU Lab.
- Launch AU Lab, found in /Applications/Utilities/
- From "Factory Configurations" menu select "Stereo In/Stereo Out". From "Audio Input Device" menu select your microphone input and from "Audio Output Device" menu select the output which corresponds to your speakers.
- Click the "Create Document" button at the bottom of the screen. Make sure that you hear the sound of the measurement microphone in one of your speakers when you touch the measurement microphone. If the sound is absent and you use USB speakers, you need to manually set the necessary inputs and outputs in AU Lab as it is described here.
- At the next screen, look for "Output 1" column and click the "Effects" dropdown, selecting "MathAudio Room EQ".
- Make sure that the green indicators show the presence of the mic signal (see figure below).
