You can use for audio measurement any LINE Input on PC - it should be quite OK. If you dob in Audio card quality you can use external player source (CD, DVD or decent portable player from reputable vendor with defined parameters).
There is dedicated software for this:
And other very similar - not a problem.
I will try to do objective part (but need to wait for V500 or revive my A3000).
Ahh, yes, good point. As I said, I could easily get the correct cable (may even have one here in one of the boxes of various cables) and could record directly from my A600. Shall I go looking for a suitable sound to playback on my Amiga, or does anyone have something suitable in mind?
