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

I'll open up orders on the site sometime on Monday here (page not active yet), prices to be determined, but will be in the ballpark of the UMM-6. $5 discount for HTS. I'll hopefully be able to start shipping early next week as well, and be up to speed by the end of the week.

FYI, I only have 24 mics right now, as I mentioned earlier, I only get what MiniDSP can spare for the moment.

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

I've returned mine and got PP credited. I haven't given up on the UMIK-1 yet and will probably order the next generation if its well received by others. I won't be the guinea pig.

That's exciting news. I forgot to ask earlier, calibration will be same as for the UMM-6? 5Hz - 25kHz, etc., etc.?

Excellent!

Are you planning on keeping the sens info in the calibration file? Its not a game changer by any means, but it is nice to have (if accurate).

Would you be able to tell us the serial number range of the ones you have so we can determine which batch they came from?

Yep. Basic+ level only thought, no sensitivity or polar measurements.

Short answer is "no." I'm not measuring sensitivity on my own because I'm still not convinced I can do it accurately (I get different results depending on OS, I'm not convinced I know what the Window control panel volume setting does, etc). With the phantom-powered ECM8000 and EMM-6, I can hook the mic to a known accurate sound level meter or voltmeter and determine the exact output voltage per input pressure and that gives me a canonical value I can trust. I don't have that option with USB mics and rather than delivering a number I'm not confident in, I'd rather not do it at all.

I could take the factory number and put it in the file, but I'm afraid that while it might work for REW, other programs that don't recognize that number might freak out and leave me to deal with support emails/phone calls. For that reason, I'm just going to punt. Sorry.

Looks like the serial numbers of the units I have are in the 700-05xx range. The rep said that this was a new revision that addressed the noise floor issue (I have not confirmed).

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Thanks for all the responses! I just got my refund and will try to grab one from you on Monday.

I would say if you want the sensitivity data, just download the original minidsp file and cut and paste into the new file, trying to match up the frequency as much as possible.
