I use Sample Champion http://purebits.com
Also because I am the author of it

Anyway, with this or other software, I suggest you also to use a very good soundcard for the measurements. Note that many modern soundcards work internally always at the same sample frequency (usually 48 kHz) and make a software resample of the other. This procedure for music listening *could* be acceptable but for audio measurements is not recommended and causes bad measurements.

Just try doing an impulse response loopback measurement with your soundcard to have the impulse response of the A/D and D/A stages (combined). You'll discover a lot of things about your soundcard.

If you do a search, you'll find LOTS of discussion here about the merits/demerits of quite a few software packages. I haven't tried Sample Champion yet, but one very popular package is Speaker Workshop.

If you have more time than money, try Speaker Workshop before anything else (because it's free).

AUDIX TR-40 combined with a standard mic pre with phantom power and some measurement software like sia smaart or winmls2004 are not too expensive...

This mic are almost the same as AUDIX TR-40 ( might be a bit cheaper..) and I have compared it with B&K (DPA ) 4006 and earthworx M30.
The behringer are a bit more noisy but will work fine for standard loudspeaker measurements.

the best software for this is winmls2004


made in Norway
