    To measure your room this is not suitable. It's a large diaphragm condenser mic with a cardioid pattern. Measuring mics have a linear frequency response and omnidirectional polar pattern.

    You need a very specific measuring microphone.
    If you use other microphones, the results will be incorrect and the correction curve of your room will be wrong.

    Here are the 2 microphones you should use so that sonarworx can give you the best.

    The original:
    Sonarworks XREF 20 Mic - 58€ @ Thomann

    And the Challenger:
    The Behringer ECM8000 - 36 € @ Thomann
    It has the same characteristics as the XREF

    I measure with my Rode NT2A and it works just fine. Not sure about your mic though but there are presets for certain mics, check on their website.
