For everything after the recording stage: hardware/software and how you use it.

That sure helps, Martin!

Does it also work in the other direction? Can SonarWorks read a .txt cal file for another mic?

BTW. The internet has never heard of "SWMIC format"...

.SWMIC = Sonarworks mic format I presume.

Yes, it can, as long as it only contains a basic table of frequency and level information. Any other data must be stripped out, as described here:

https://support.sonarworks.com/hc/en-us ... /207211709

Essentially:

"You can also use your own omnidirectional measurement microphone with a calibration.

To do so, you will need to convert your calibration file so our measurement software can import it.

Calibration files are usually supplied in formats like .cal or .txt

Open up this file with any text editor and remove anything that is not the values for Frequency Response and Magnitude."
