has anyone tried Anthem's ARC mic with REW

I have a mic that came with my Anthem AVM50V2 w/ARC. Has anyone tied to use the mic from ARC. I just sent an email to Antem to see if they can send me the cal file for the mic.

Re: has anyone tried Anthem's ARC mic with REW

I got back an email from Paradigm/Anthem the next daywith the CAL file for the mic.
I just hope this is the same file system that REW uses, otherwise, i'll have to buy a new mic (ECM8000 and the XENYX502).
Right now, i'm just in the process of getting all the gear together, and all at the same time, getting the materials for building the subs. I was going to build a one box with 2- IXL18.2.2 with 2- Exodus 21" passive radiators, but once I started calculating the wood (using 1" MDF, 2" thick for the speakers resides) I stopped before going too far (would have been tooooooooooo heavy) for me to move around (from the garage to the basement), so I decided to build 2 boxes....smart move but still heavy. the boxes will be outside dimenssions; 24W X 24D X 40H, inside 22W X 21D X 38H, which gives it an inside of 9.7cu/ft. ....this will go in the thread i started with same title hilighted in bold. more to come latter...

I'm interested to know how you make out with this. I have just discovered REW and I'm very intreseted.

I also have an Anthem with the supplied mic for calibration with ARC. I know that the mic ships with a calibration file specific to the mic for use with ARC Calibraion software. Is the file you received from Anthem different from the one that shipped with your mic?

Have you had any luck using the calibration file they sent with REW?

Thanks

Re: has anyone tried Anthem's ARC mic with REW

hey tigger
the file that Anthem sent me via email attachment is a "CAL file" and can't be opened, but they told me that it might work. i think that it should work with REW but i haven't tried it yet. i'm too busy with real life issues and building my subs. no time to start exploring REW program. i copied all REW tutorial files into M.S. Word so that i can read them easier at a later date. one word of advice...read, read, read again. i figure that if someone else can do it (make REW work), we can too!

Funny, I'm in a similar boat... I've begun to read the manual... and I'm currently working this week on building new front speakers and a new center channel!

There is also a PDF copy of the help files on the REW home page.

Haven't had any problems with my MRX-700 calibration. Fingers crossed!

Re: has anyone tried Anthem's ARC mic with REW

I've tried it, and attached how it compares to the new calibrated Umik USB mic from MiniDSP.

Unfortunately, the .cal file doesn't open in REW.
