I forgot to add this after I received my UMIK from CSL but better late than never. Here are the two cal files overlaid. The dark line is CSL (0 degree narrow band) and the light one is Mini DSP.


Interesting

Good thing is you can load the CSL file into every measurement you have saved (when measuring with the UMIK), to get the up to date accurate measurement.

Wait, he's got them for sale already? Can't find them on the website. Or was that privately done?

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Big thanks to this thread and for everyone who helped on it. I would have never known my calibration file down to 5hz was off on my first gen Umik and just received my refund from MiniDSP.

That's really good customer service from them and they will continue to get my business in the future.

A little off topic but has anyone used there OpenDRC products? I was particularly interested in the Analog version that has actual XLR inputs and outputs and comes as a more complete version than the normal MiniDSP balanced. Just looking for DSP control over my subs for an LT and such without the hassles of finding the right power supply and hooking up phoenix connectors.

Ahh, Ok. Thanks.
I'm hoping to be able to get one when they're available from them.

I'm going to try my best to make this happen sooner rather than later, especially since I'm no longer selling the ECM8000.

I have one of the first generation UMIK-1's with the original calibration file and it to the best of my knowledge has worked OK. Are they asking for all the UMIK's back for a refund or only the second generation?
I also have an earlier one (#95) and am not certain what the options are. Have an email in to miniDSP, but am going on vacation and probably won't easily get mail for a week...

I have a drastically different new cal file, compared to my old one, haven't had the time to check noise level for the noise problem. I'm wondering why I and others I've seen posted, have a large peak now around 10khz, where the old file is pretty flat up there. Had been getting the impression that this is just a low end issue. Bothers me that they're so different you'd think completely different mic's....

OTOH, our example of a CSL cal'ed mic, and a lot of other small capsule based ones, have that high end peak. So, it's likely real. Maybe. I really can't say... So can I trust the new cal? That's the problem.

Let's see if the pic link works: Aha.. it does, but I need to up the pic size... You can always follow the link if you cant read it. Dark is original 5hz file from around January, lighter Blue is current file from a couple days ago...

In that case you'd better hurry up and make up your mind on what you are going to do because there is a deadline on taking advantage of those options miniDSP is offering... its May 16th I believe... that's like next week.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Doh, I almost ordered a Umik-1, glad I saw this thread. Does anyone know when the third generation will be available to order?
