What exactly is a mic calibrator and how does it work?I asked the boys over at AP as I just started to use the acoustic measurement portion of the APX software.I am trying to ascertain correct level of what the preamp on the measurement mic should be.The recommended a mic calibrator? which I am not Familiar with. What does it do and how does it work?I just need to make sure the DBX measurement mic and subsequent preamp we are using with it, is set to allow a proper level back into the AP. So far I got useable results in that it did register level enough to map things out but want to be sure I am at a correct nominal level. Then what are the v/pa equations so I can covert that into dBu? I can't seem to find any direct information or online calculators. Would love to learn more about this... If anyone has some suggestions as such.

It's amazing to me that some manufacturers use upper case for "kilo". I will never buy theirs product.
What about manufacturers that use a lower-case 'm' for mega?
