  1. I need calibration file for my rode m5 mics

    REW Forum
    I need calibration file for my rode m5 mics is anyone willing to make them?
  2. The Tale of Two Mics and a Dummy

    AV Home Theater
    The discussion about single-point microphone placement for auto-EQ raises an interesting question: Why hasn't anyone implemented a binaural method of auto-setup? If they can make binaural recordings, why not binaural measurements? I think it makes more sense to mimic the human head and ears...

    Hi out there, what mics are good on toms?
  5. Are Pre-Packaged Auto-EQ Mics Good Enough?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hello all, I'm not sure if pre-packaged mics are "calibrated" for the auto-EQ software they're used with. Ultimately, I'd like to set up my system using REW with a calibrated mic, but am still too early on the REW learning curve. Running EMO-Q on my Emotiva UMC-1 yields acceptable results...
  6. Any mic/spl meter for BASS MuSIC

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi, i am new with REW and acoustics measurements, and i'm gonna use it in few weeks when i 'll have my new (small) studio. I will treat it acoustically. I am an electronic/Bass music maker/producer, so i have to be sure about that there's no issues with lows & subs frequencies (not only but...
  7. Using USB mics and HDMI--several questions

    REW Forum
    A small group over on the AVR Forum is collectively developing our REW skills using the new USB microphone support, and HDMI connectivity. Several questions keep popping up, and we would like to see if someone here can provide guidance. Two of the popular microphones being used are the UMIK1...
  8. Calibration with Two Mics?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hi everybody! I'm just now getting into the exciting world of room correction and acoustics. I ordered a Behringer ECM 8000 mic but I didn't realize it had to be individually calibrated for best results. That got me thinking how I could calibrate it myself. Do you think this technique could...
  9. Measuring comparisons with two mics

    REW Forum
    Hi please can someone tell me the best process to measure two mics? I thought i would measure the center speaker. Do i measure near field, e.g. 25 inches from the speaker?
  10. Better Mics than an 8000 ?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Is anyone getting serious with small condensor measurment microphones here ? has anyone tried an AUDIX TR1, or at least charted the Benhringer plot vs. something like an Earthworks or a B&K ? You must have a reference to achieve to, not a chart plot without reference to compare to. I am...
  11. Measuring Mics - what do you use?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I have a Dayton EMM-6 that I had calibrated by Cross Spectrum Labs that I've been very happy with. I also have an Audyssey APM-1 that I keep debating getting calibrated. Does anyone on HTS use any more exotic (higher priced) measuring mics that they use for measurements? IE...
  12. DEQ2496 and calibrated mics

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I'm trying to help out a customer, and since I'm a little out of my depth I figured I'd ask for help. A customer bought a microphone expecting that the mic had been physically modified to produce a flat response rather than relying on a correction curve to flatten the response. The issue is...
  13. Onkyo to replace Audyssey AMC1 mics

    Audio Processing
    Audyssey has announced that Onkyo will replace the ACM1 mics with a ACM1H mic . here is the posting on another forum that announced that Onkyo would make good the replacement of the wrong mic shipped with some Onkyo AVR's Statement & info ===>...
  14. Mics for acoustic instruments in live use

    Pro Audio
    I've got to get a few mics for reinforcing acoustic instruments such as mandolin, fiddle, banjo, dobro, and guitar. Something that isn't going to break the bank but will perform well. I'd rather stay away from condensers and phantom power for simplicity and feedback concerns. I assume I need...
  15. Choice of Mics

    REW Forum
    As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am just starting to delve into REW, and I want to make sure I use the correct components. I have an Audio Control SA- 3052 one-third octave spectrum analyzer/ SPL meter. It includes the following: a CM-10 microphone and a CM-10 A/C weighting filter. Here...
  16. Mics used with the REW software

    REW Forum
    I noticed there are only a couple mics recommended with this software and curious if nearly any meter with stereo output can be used if there are specific reasons for the two meters recommended? I also notice that the CM-140 only goes down to 31hz or so. Shouldn't we be using a mic with...
  17. A/V receivers' calibration mics suitable for REW?

    REW Forum
    Hello, Most A/V receivers come equipped with measuring microphones for automatic speaker setup. It is to be expected that these microphones are not linear and each receiver will match its own microphone response curve. Assuming that the microphone curve is known, is it suitable for use with...
  18. Typical distortion of mics measuring subwoofers

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    I pulled this quote from the "mic damage" thread as it is a good introduction into the second part of my question which is typical distortion levels of the 6mm measurement microphones when measuring subwoofers (ie 10-100Hz). I've been able to find very little information on this subject but am...
  19. Multiple mics / instances.

    REW Forum
    Hello. I am doing fairly extensive tests in my new listening room and would like to have a multi mic set up to feed in readings all around the room. I know I will be doing lots of measurements so to get more done I would like to use lots of mics. I am wondering if there is any creative way to...
  20. Binaural Mics used for REW? am i making a mistake?

    SPL Meters | Mic's | Calibration | Sound Cards
    Hey all, I just started with REW, and so far so good! I'm using a portable mic setup I used for ambient field recordings: sound-professional in-ear binaural mics that I run thru a core audio portable a/d converter (Core Sound Mic2496) to run into my mac and am able to get room readings, etc...
