Question about the sensitivity information being missing
from the CSL umik 1 calibration file.
I have created a collated file that has both the miniDSP and CSL data
> the miniDSP has sensitivity information ( I really like not having to calibrate the SPL with my Galaxy 140 every time I plug in the mic)
> the CSL has better low/high frequency range and also is accurate for my specific mic
So the file i created has all data from both files interwoven within. Using this file REW does not require to calibrate every time I plug in the mic for accurate SPL readings.
There is no parsing errors from the new file when REW starts but I wonder if some lines are just being looked passed with "False-Negative" results
A. What does the second column of data actually represent in both these calibration files? Because if it is sensitivity data then both files have this data and why then would the CSL cal. file not then allow REW to avoid this step thus requiring me to use my SPL meter.
B. What does the third column of data represent in the CSL calibration file? This column only has zero's and it is not present in the miniDSP file.
C. How does REW parse the data in this calibration file? Does it consider any "white-space" to be the same as "tab" and the same as "Line Return" as being next data to process?
Here attached is a sample of screenshots of the file I have created.
> The CSL file are the lines that have the third column of zeros
> The miniDSP file only has two columns of data
!..  ..!
... I obtained some answers :nerd:
- The first line of the miniDSP calibration file is the actual sensitivity information.
- The second column in both CSL/miniDSP files is level difference in dB from the reference mic
- The third column in the CSL file is the phase used
