I adjusted my sensitivity of my microphone to be able to take measurements at high levels. Now that I want to switch it back to 18db and I cannot seem to get the Cal File and sensitivity back to a normal level. Even when I move the dip switches to the correct settings I am still not getting enough volume into the microphone. Ive been searching and cannot find what the cal file should be for 18db. I looked on other threads and pasted in their settings and it is still measuring the same. I am so lost right now with my Microphone. HELP!

Been down at least a parallel path. My UMIK is old, the DIP switch instructions are for 3 poles, while the actual witch has 4.
By trial and error I got it to 18dB. Watch out for level changing drivers in the OS. I am Mac only, so AudioMidi setup, Master Stream 0.3 of Unity, 0dB, I think. You could get gain there if you wish, but I suspect you will find your original switch combination and won't need to stray from 0dB
As far as I know Cal File relates to the way the Microphone was shipped. So if REW sees UMIK 18dB your original Cal File should work fine too.
