Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but i believe that unless you have an anechoic chamber you will be measuring the room, not the mic.

How about outdoors?

I have an ecm8000. There are generic calibration files out there, but it's an average..

I live on a cliff so I thought outside over the balcony, which is 100 ft up would make a good substitute for an a-chamber if I gated the sample.

Re: Natural sources of Pink Noise for Mic Testing

Outdoor prob the best option. But we are talking reference mic, the basis of all your treatment. No harm in trying but if anything is off from expectations i dont know what confidence i would have. At night after all the large intl planes and any far off construction is at rest. Just remember these are onmi.

IIRC doesnt parts express sell the same thing private labeled with a unique calibration file or is my memory off?

That still leaves a clean source for "natural" pink noise. Even in an a-chamber best transducer is going to color the sound.
