Yes, your cal file can be imported directly into REW on the Preferences-Mic/Meter page.

Re: OmniMic and REW

Do not calibrate the laptops sound card.

Also the Sens Factor (SPL) on top of the mics calibration file might not be correct, but calibrate it with the Omnimic SPL readings to confirm.

REW most likely will ask if you:
Want to use Omnimic, click yes
Then ask do you have a mic calibration file, click yes then find and load.

You are pretty much ready to go.

Hope this helps

The file extension will be .omni
If you can't find it on your laptop download it again and watch where it goes to, will go to the place were you should be looking for it. If so delete one of them.
Setup a new folder called REW and put all REW related files in this folder, alot to easier to control.

1. Plug the mic into the laptops USB port.
2. Open REW, the program will ask
3. REW will ask if you want to use the Omnimic click yes
4. Then the program will ask to load the calibration file, click yes and then pick the .omni file and load.
5. Done

Re: OmniMic and REW

It's kinda funny how the file is saved. It's to a website that has text. So I copied the text and made a new text file and loaded it to the program. Is it OK how I did that?

Nice! I'm glad it's that easy. Next step is sub calibration correct?
