Title: BRP-PACU
Post by: Lyle Williams on January 02, 2014, 01:51:16 am

Has anyone tried BRP-PACU, an open source package that runs on linux and OSX.  From the doco it will plot source independent transfer functions.

I attempted to run BRP-PACU on the Ubuntu 11.10 standard distribution a year or more ago. I had a bunch of trouble getting some of the prerequisite libraries installed. Never even tackled the issue of getting my ASIO interface running. 

IIRC, the developer was reachable by email. I'd be definitely be interested to hear if you get it running, especially if you have a linux distro it will run inside easily!

I'll probably not get around to trying it.  I've found a transfer function solution for my iPad.

Audio Tools is the app - about $20.  It needs a ~$80 in app purchase to turn on the dual FFT function.

My ipad connects using the apple usb camera adapter to an art usb dual pre.  This gives me two channels in.  Left carries the measured mic signal which needs phantom power.  Right carries the original reference signal which doesn't need phantom power (I use the TRS input to avoid sending phantom power back towards the mixer.)
