Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

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...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

The one I tested was 700-0699 but I presume the results would apply to the whole third batch.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I got a noise floor of 35 dBA using ARTA and an external acoustical calibrator. The 1 kHz (and harmonic) spikes are definitely gone.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Sorry for not responding to your email about this (it's been a rough couple of days, we had to put out dog to sleep on Friday and things have gone downhill since). I haven't looked into noise floor...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Even if you somehow mess up the original file, I have copies of the cal files I produce, so just email the mic serial number and I can send you the original cal files.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

You need a 1/4-inch to 3/8-inch adapter to use the UMIK-1 mount (or ECM8000/EMM-6/UMM-6) mount with a camera tripod, they're available on eBay, Amazon (this for example...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

If you can't return it, I'd be willing to give you a $60 credit toward one of my UMIK-1's in exchange for the mic.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

To be fair this is something that can happen with any of the mics in this class (ECM8000, EMM-6, UMIK-1, UMM-6, RTA-M, etc). It's the price we pay for living in the low end.

On the other end, a...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I don't make sensitivity measurements for USB mics (at least for the moment), I'm not convinced I can do them correctly. You should be able to download the factory sensitivity info from miniDSP and...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Yes, your order made it. If folks try to order now, they'll get a message that it's sold out.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Yep. I'm guessing graduation season is over, summer has begun and folks are looking toward tweaking their audio systems.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Too late. This group sold out faster than the original stockpile. I put in another order, but since it's coming from Asia it's going to be a couple of weeks.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

For vocal mics (which the UMM-6/UMIK-1/EMM-6/ECM8000 are definitely not) true, although again, the one that comes with these low-cost measurement mics are so small I doubt they would provide any...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Ostensibly to reduce turbulence-induced noise if the mic is used in windy conditions. However, it's so small I doubt it would offer any real protection (although I haven't tested it).

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I don't use the windscreen when making the measurements. It basically makes a roughly 0.5 to 1 dB difference above 15 kHz or so:

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

According to miniDSP, newer mics have a default attenuation of -12 dB (that should show up when you select the microphone in the input device settings of REW or whatever program). If you are getting...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

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...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

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