Thank you for the reply! I have a printout from AKG. Maybe I can get a file from them.You would need a calibration file dedicated for that mic. otherwise you will get undesirable readings.
Thanks for the reply. Even though I'd never buy a LDC mic for an RTA, the 414 B-ULS seemsI have little knowledge on how to make the calibration file but if you have the sheet on the AKG you should be able to make one, hopefully someone with more knowledge on that side of things will chime in soon.
calibrating the sound cars is another step that must be done keep the mic out of the loop for that procedure. they are two different things all together dont get them confused.
A calibration file is no more than an ANSI text file you can make with Notepad. It contains a series of lines with the first entry a frequency, and the second entry a deviation from flat in decibels. The filename has the form name.calThank you for the reply! I have a printout from AKG. Maybe I can get a file from them.
I know that you can calibrate REW to your sound card. Is there a way to make a calibration file
if I can't get one?
You don't have to put hundreds of entries in a calibration file. Third-octave frequencies would be enough.Thanks for the reply. Wow, that's a lot of typing! Good to know that I have the option though.
As for the omni requirement, the 414 is an excellent omni mic. I've recorded with it in omni mode,
and no matter how you spin the capsule off axis to the source, it sounds the same! More so than
I though could be possible. With that said, it won't replace an earthworks for RTA duties. Just wondering if it's a viable or tested option.
It's one of the most common studio mics. I would have figured that lots of people had tried it.
Thanks for that information! I have been searching for info on using a AKG 414 and found this thread. I was able to scan the frequency chart AKG provided with my mic and used the program SPL and import it as a JPG file -- it worked great! Still had to do some typing, but the program converted the chart into numbers. So ... now I have a calibration file for my specific mic.
