Thanks Bill, That was from my post #70, figured everyone already saw or grabbed it - I added it to the first post now - I didn't know what else to call it, so I named it "User info / Manual"

What's funny is I got one of those little speakers when I ordered my Aviatrix stuff and my daughter grabbed it for her ipod. Now I will have two of those little things. It actually did not sound bad for what it is.

So Warp, when can we expect a shoot out between those and your TC setup?

I guess you could make a video of the TC shooting them across the room on heavy bass info

Pfft, yeah but are his 'awesome' LMS subs wireless? Get with the times, ya bunch of geezers. Nothing is cool anymore if it isn't wireless and I don't see anywhere on his subs that says they are able to play mp3's or stream Netflix.

My Dual 18" LLT subs 120dB down to 10hz

You can do that with a quality sound card and free software.

Excited to see what those of you that ordered this think of it. I would have loved to get this to play with for the weekend but I'll be in Vega$. I'll order mine when I get back.

I've got more money than time and patience; the plug&play aspect of OmniMic is what attracts me.

I second Noah's statement.

It would also be nice if everyone (many) was using the same software and mic. It would make comparisons easier.

Is there a functionality that generates a file you can post to the web or are we going to be down to print screens?

Got my kit today. Other than installing it on my netbook and looking at the SPL graphs of my voice I've done nothing with it. Very neat kit though. Up and running in about three minutes.

I hope this thing works well, because installing this thing onto my netbook with a USB cable is priceless compared to breaking out all the equipment necessary for REW.

How is TrueRTA these days for user-friendliness?

I don't need distortion or CSD, just freq resp.

I didn't get a ship notice either but I called and mine was shipped yesterday, I bet yours went out too. PE has been slacking on the shipping notices lately.

I haven't gotten a ship notice on my last 2 or 3 orders.

Go to their website and click on you "Your Account" then "My Order History" and then on the Invoice Number. If it has shipped it will have Fedex numbers on the invoice and you can click on them and takes you straight to the Fedex tracking page.

I hated it.

If you want just Freq resp. and you want it cheaper then the new Dayton mic then why not use HOLM??

Its probably the easiest tool I have used for getting a frequency response.

Its not really important to have the same software, what is important is that everyone understand what properties should be used (ie. Smoothing, Axis values, etc).

Lots of the pros use Praxis, SoundEasy, etc already and its not hard to see a plot from any piece of software.

As for capturing/posting charts. You can always use free screen capture software like Screenhunter (its easy and free). You save the file as a jpeg and upload it.

I'm confused on this thing looking at the PE page.

The mic plugs into the USB on the computer, but how does it output the tones. I see there is two discs there so I would hazard a guess that one is for the drivers and the other is an output of test tones like soho's dvd.

Correct or no?
