Editing Your Curves - Curve Editor
This is probably the best part of this app. Here you can ignore the two target curves supplied by Audyssey and create your custom filter to your heart’s content.
You can click on the yellow arrow marked above to move to another set. This is the filter for the subwoofer. As I only have one sub-woofer, I do not know if there is a single filter for both, or one filter for each.
Manipulate the curve to get your desired target curve. Green is the Audyssey default, while red will be the new filter to apply.
As an example, if you want a flat 20 Hz to 20 kHz curve, you can manipulate the target curve to something like so:
The correct way to do this is to adjust your new target curve here, then look at the ‘Room Correction Results‘. The idea is to create a target curve that is customised to your home theatre - removing the big peaks and troughs giving you a flat response that starts to roll off at around 14 kHz.
Work on the sub-woofer first, then move on to center, fronts and everything else.
Easier said than done. There’s probably not enough points you can use to get a truly flat curve. And at around this point you’d probably realised you should have done all this on a tablet instead of on your mobile phone .
!! VERY IMPORTANT !!
Remember to press the ‘Done’ button (see arrow above) after you have changed the curve. Do not hit the ‘Back’ button on your Android remote. There is a bug in the Android addition and pressing the Android ‘back’ button will CORRUPT the data set. You have to delete and restore from a backup or re-take all your measurements again to continue!

The hints how to copy and rename curves helped me a lot. Unfortunately the app is often not self-explanatory. Many thanks for your work.

A big THANK YOU for your article! This is what the user manual should have been! I followed it all the way through and successfully made the measurements, edit the curves, and uploaded to the receiver (Marantz AVR7012) , all in the First Try! However, the second try did not go so well. The app kept losing the receiver and I had to start over several times…… That’s probably is one of the reasons for low ratings. I finally noted your suggestion and use the IP address to "help" the app find the receiver. All my equipments are on a wired network, and the tablet was less than 5 feet away from the router. Never had any connection problem on wi-fi .
Yes, the app is great , if it’s consistent. My cons are:
- Occasional loss of contact with receiver… "may" be handled by giving it the IP address to search on retry.
- Slow. It took me about an hour to upload the data to the receiver (AVR 7013 and Galaxy TAB-A). Many times I thought it was hung, but just waited it out.
Many thanks again for a very helpful article.
