  1. should i calibrate the ecm8000 or use the calibration file

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I recently bought an ecm8000 and im willing to spend a little more money to get it professionally calibrated if any of you think its worth the extra money as opposed to the calibration file available. Ive also heard that the preamp should be calibrated? i have a tube ultragain mic100 any...
  2. ECM8000 orientation

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I feel kind of stupid asking this, but what's the correct way of positioning the ECM8000? Should it point toward the source or toward the ceiling? I.e. horizontal or vertical? Thanks!
  3. Rolls mp13+ecm8000 - not much signal

    REW Forum
    I can't seem to get enough signal from this combo. When I try the ecm8000 directly into my Mbox it's fine. If I use an SM57 mic via XLR or a logitech headset via 1/8" with the rolls pre, those are both fine. But together, even with the gain cranked and phantom power on, lots of noise and not...
  4. E-Mu 0404 USB with Phantom Power for ECM8000

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Ive been seeing lots of people using their existing sound card and getting a cheap $60 mixer to use for calibration. If one is in need of a sound card too, like myself, why not consider the E-Mu 0404 external card...

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    just got my ecm8000 and xenyx802 yesterday.. plugged it in to my x-fi and started messing with it a bit, as it turns out it wont pick up treble frequncies very well. i even tried recording from right in front of the tweeter and it sounded like someone had turned the treble way down. am i doing...
  6. Do I need a ECM8000 ?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I have a digital Radio Shack meter, and want to start doing measurments. The meter has been droped a few times I guess its still acurate. do I need the ECM for high frequency readings, or can the Galaxy do that too, or will my old Radio shack meter do everything ?
  7. ECM8000 or Galaxy - CM-140? Which way to go?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi all, I'm relatively new to the forum but have done extensive reading here. My recently aquired PB12 Plus/2 is in need of calibrating. So my question is which route to go ifor EQing; the Galaxy SPL meter/mic or the ECM8000. I currently have a RS SPL (analog) meter but still need a good mic...
  8. Behringer ECM8000 / SMS-1 mic

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I have a Velodyne SMS-1 parametric EQ that comes with a microphone that looks just like the Behringer ECM8000. Is it the same microphone and can I accuratly use the Velodyne microphone with the calibration file for the ECM8000? For a mic preamp, I ordered the AudioBuddy.
  9. Behringer ECM8000 still the one to get??

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I've been busy the last few days getting REW 4.0 up on a Vista laptop and believe that the phantom power supply to my Behringer ECM8000 has died. Checked voltage out and its almost non existant. I am going through a Creative external USB sound card and have verified that my Radio Shack analog...
  10. Any ECM8000 owners needing an SPL meter?

    Classifieds - Equalization & Calibration Equipment
    If you have purchased and or planning on purchasing an ECM8000 mic and a mic preamp, and you still need an SPL meter, I have one new CM-130 SPL meter still new in the package. PM me for price, it is below minimum allowed advertising price. NOTE: This meter will not replace the CM-140, it does...

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I am going from ratshack to ECM8000 . So far so fine but I noticed in the mic setup that I still had C-weighted checked. Is ECM8000 C weighted? Everything seems to work fine but I just wanted to check
  12. Behringer ECM8000 Mic

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    So I've finally gotten Room EQ Wizard to work. Basically, I had to switch computers. The first one I tried, the one conveniently located of course, has on-board Nvidia audio. While having line in/out, I simply couldn't get it to work with REW. Thus, I had to lug my computer down from...
