Your decay below 30hz, while higher than the rest is still to be expected somewhat. Nothing over 300ms above 30hz is also pretty solid.

I am having problems with Omnimic. Everytime I start the software, newest version, I get an error message: Runtime error 217 at 000284BA. I tried running the program on a second compter and get the same thing. Virus program, Registry cleaner and repair have been done. Also, the antivirus software was diabled to see if that was the cause.

Parts Express has no ideal of what the problem is and escalated to a higher tech. Any help appreciated. Microsoft thinks it is a software issue with the Omnimic program.

Go directly to Dayton Audio and contact Bill Waslo, the developer of Omnimic (and lots of other stuff).

I think that is who they are contacting for the problem. I just wonder if anyone else is having the same problem?

Apparent Omnimic fix in Windows 10 for Runtime error 217. Right click the app, go to properties. Then hit compatability mode in the top right corner. Select Windows XP serice pack 3 and hit apply/OK. I did this and at least got the app open. Now I just need to get the mic back from PE to see if this works.

Yes, they sent it back. The fix was to use it in compatability mode for windows XP 3 if I remember correctly. I don't seem to be able to get a good waterfall graph in the bass region. The bass decay works fine but, I need to figure out the waterfall.

Here are some graphs of the house curve which is on the aggressive side.

I have been meaning to update my laptop from windows 8.1 to v10.

I see derrick had an issue.

Should I just stay on 8.1?

Yes. It did not initially so maybe Dayton did something. It work as intended now. Omnimic is still the easiest system to learn and use without a lot of fuss.

Ok sorry, I didn't realise the Dayton mic had its own software. I presume the impulse response graphs look similar to REW though?
