Oktava MK012 for measuments ?

Hello you all

A quick question before I start and try to fix my unfixable room (more on this a future thread): should I really invest in a (cheap) dedicated measurement mike or would my Oktava MK012 (with omni capsule) be enough ?

A bit of context: personal home studio, used for both tracking and mixing (indie rock & various electronic stuff), room is (of course) a case study in acoustical disasters so I only expect to try and make things "a bit less worse".

Already made a couple test measurements (with all the current setup still in place) with REW and the oktava, mostly to start learning how to do those things, and what I can "read" (I'm learning...) seems to correlate with things I can both empirically observe and compute with room mode calculators, so I assume it's not totally wrong, at least for the low end part (forgot to switch one of the speakers off so the upper end is very probably totally meaningless xD)

So - would my oktava be enough or would I really benefit from a cheap (ie behringer or similar) dedicated MM ? (and if yes, which one ?)
