I ordered some absorbtion panels to do some room acoustic treatment. I was hoping to use the calibrated Genelec microphone to do some testing in the room with Room Eq Wizard before permanently placing the panels. But when I plug the 8300A in the computer it doesn't seem to respond...

even if it did respond, this would't work.

afaik the GLM mic is actually cheap and awful. but they calibrate the bad mic in the factory and program the result into the GLM software.

which is a smart move.

a good mic for this purpose will cost you a few 100 bucks.

Hello,

Genelec microphone will not work directly with any PC. It is designed to be used only with the GLM application.

For that use we recommend something else, such as UMIK-1.
