Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Protection is the only reason. The mic is certainly calibrated without windscreen in place. With a calibration mic, breath noise is not an issue, and wind noise is not an issue unless making speaker...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Indeed, thanks is in order to all who made contributions of their time and energy getting to a full understanding of the issues and communicating with MiniDSP. And appreciation to MiniDSP for going...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I also applaud MiniDSP for "manning up" to their difficulties and accepting returns of the older UMIK-1 mics for full refund, as stated in the update on their forum...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Here is what I am trying to visualize. The mic capsule has a pair of wires, probably twisted, going to the circuit board. That twisted pair has to be long enough to be stretched out so the circuit...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

A note of wariness on my part when I read this. It could be quite easy, true, and I hope for all concerned that it will be. I have been inside a tube-construction mic before, and consider myself...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Some users might be in a "wait and see" mode regarding the UMIK-1 directly from miniDSP, waiting for verification by other users and/or Cross Spectrum Labs and/or other testers that their 10 Hz data...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Not sure if there is a consensus on this, but my personal opinion at this point is "whatever is available through Cross Spectrum with their calibration," considering pre-cal mic-to-mic variation,...

dezibel-3,

Thanks again for compiling all of the charts and data for the user community to view. That's a real service.:T

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Agreed, it does seem indicative of there being some stitching together of portions of the curve at that point. It makes you wonder, if the offset is the same for all samples, why is there any offset...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

It is a relief to be getting a detailed response from MiniDSP, and a relief that fresh calibration files can hopefully be generated without having to return microphones for recalibration. No doubt...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

It is conceivable that it can all be straightened out on their end, bit I, too, expect that returning the units in question for re-calibration will be necessary.

Mistakes happen. We may never get...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

dezibel-3: How hard would it be for you to provide a calibration file with the "average" set of data points from your first plot, for temporary use by newer UMIK-1 owners for taking non-critical...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

dezibel-3: Nice work. Thank you for taking the time. Your charts really tell a story.

In case it is not already obvious to anyone, a UMIK-1 with serial number 7000190 or above is usable WITHOUT...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Thanks, I had to see for myself, so I downloaded the calibration files for those serial numbers plus a few others, and sure enough that is exactly the way they plot out in REW.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Forgive me for being super curious about your plot of the five calibration curves. How was it generated? Are all five of the curves exactly superimposed below 800 Hz? And what is the additional...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Being nosey here. You didn't pick up a 25 foor HDMI cable for the UMIK-1 connection to your computer, did you? Because the UMIK-1 uses USB. Plus USB can not go 25 feet without running into timing...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Indeed, the repeater cable is certainly no cure-all, seems to work in some cases and not others. With audio data streaming in one direction, it seems to be more forgiving.
