Camera tripod threads tend to be 1/4-20. The UMIK-1 mic holder (as well as the UMM-6, ECM8000 and EMM-6 holders) are 5/8 with a 3/8 adapter. You can get 3/8 to 1/4-20 adapters from Amazon and eBay among other places.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Well I read the first 26 pages of this thread and also the last 4 pages.. I am just learning about REW and now I think I know a little about this UMIK-1
There is one thing I'm not clear on.
I have a 2010 Macbook pro No HDMI..So I will need to use a Mic out from Mac to 2xRCA
What do I plug the RCA into on my AVR?
Also I'm wondering if I could use the Mini Display Port-to-HDMI Adapter?

Thanks

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

need help, I just installed everything per instructions, mini dsp umik1 , asio newest version , rew newest version , but when opening rew it does not see my mic, when running preference set up I set asio as my driver, asio4all as device, and in advanced I try to set umik1 up and it is not listed under any term? I'm using a windows 7 laptop?

Did you boot up w/ umik plugged in ? I know when I did it didn't work.
Do you have only one USB on PC? try using another maybe..Does LED on umik light up?
I just started using REW last week. I had to go through the settings multiple times before I got things going..
Good luck

I went to the Minidsp forum and found I wasn't the only one with this issue, seems you have to push really hard on the usb cable where it enters the mic until it clicks. So now my rew is seeing the mic, but when I do the next step in set up (per the umik1 set up guide w/hdmi) for the output dropdown, I don't have 8 channels to choose from, only 2, and when I hit the generate tab I get no sound through my onkyo 1010 with the hdmi hooked to it's front panel

That happened to me also.. I just don't remember what I did to correct it. Double check and recheck all your settings is the best advice I can give.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Very simple question: Is there a difference in purchasing this mic from Cross Spectrum and miniDSP?

Thanks.

Yes- CSL calibrates the mic, and provides the calibration files. The CS is great!

However, my AVR calibrated my system and my rat shack meter matched it - 75db exactly. But my UMIK and REW read 2-3 DB lower. But down low the UMIK and rat shack are a dead match.

If it weren't for the fact the AVR was a dead match with the rat shack I wouldn't even question resetting to 75 db with the UMIK.

In any event it's worth it to get it from Herb.
