Do I need a Behringer ECM8000 Cal file?

I did some searching here and a brief amount of reading. I get the impression that I need a calibration file for my Behringer ECM8000?

Any helpful hints?

Regards,
Dan

If your interest is accurate frequency response measurements, then yes. If you have some other intent for REW, then a calibration file is not needed.

The best calibration file is one that’s custom to the specific mic. Considering the wide range of response of various ECM8000 samples (as seen in the graph below), a single generic calibration file can’t account for all mics. That said, the deviations appears to be in a +/- 5 dB window, so a generic file would be better than nothing.
