Me either! I'm really interested to see how they will compare.

You can safely EQ/setup with confidence with accuracy.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

FYI... apparently there is now a third batch of UMIKs now shipping and they supposedly have all the 'kinks' worked out as far as the spurious 1kHz and high noise floor issues. Also a reworked board is being prepared for owners of the second batch UMIKs that will be a solder-in replacement for those of us with DIY skills and they will probably offer to do it for those who are non-DIYers. The UMIK manufacturer is working on a revised script that will correct the errors in the current calibration files... hopefully there will be a fix sooner rather than later. Finally... the sensitivity issue will be solved with the next installment of REW. All this is according to the DevTeam over on the UMIK help forum... I believe I can now see a light at the end of the tunnel, let's just hope its not another train.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Reading through this, I decided to send my UMIK to cross spectrum.
Cross Spectrum responded within 5 mins!

$55 for on axis calibration, includes return shipping within USA. And 24-48 hour turn around. Worth it to me, I'm shipping it out Monday morning.

Is there any way to tell which version of this microphone we have? If mine needs to be repaired I don't want to calibrate it until it's fixed.

I asked the question over there today but don't really expect a response until late Sunday when they get back from the weekend (it will be Monday afternoon their time). I suspect what they are calling RevB is the second batch of UMIKs and if so then those are the ones targeted for the revised board... I don't believe it will affect calibration response, only input sensitivity, though it wouldn't hurt to ask, send them an email.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I would look at the following

1. Email Herb from Cross-Spectrum and ask him, he might know if it will effect the calibration.
2. If in doubt wait until the new board is sorted out, then send for calibration.

Well it's already on the way to be calibrated so no luck there. I will bring it up with him.
