Hello, i couldn't find any info on the internet so i decided to ask there. I have a UMIK 1 default set to -18db, but i wanted to record with it things that will be a bit higher than the 114 db max SPL (reported from REW), so i opened it up and found out that there are 4 switches instead of 3.
With some trial and error i found that the first 3 are used for the gain setting, so i set it up to -12db.
I also changed the "Sens Factor =1.216dB, SERNO: 7056276" to "Sens Factor =-5.216dB, SERNO: 7056276"
REW now register max SPL of 120 which is correct.

My questions are:
What is the 4th switch used for ? (i can send pictures if needed)
And if i want to record audio with it, for example with audacity, how can i use the calibration file there? Or is there a recording software that will accept the calibration file ? Maybe i have to do it manually ?
