Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Alright, and performance-wise? Is there any reason why the UMIK-1 is a better mic than the UMM-6 for REW, or is it much of a muchness?

Is it true that these mics are plug and play for REW? No...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Sorry, this is a noob question so please forgive me. Are there any benefits buying the UMIK-1 over the Dayton UMM-6 mic? Any drawbacks?

I want to make up my mind, but those are the two choices I...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I guess I'm having difficulty understanding why the mic must be calibrated for accurate results if a calibration file could also achieve accurate results. So, for example, if the UMIK corrects the...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Okay, but then what would be the difference between the UMM-6 and the UMIK if both were calibrated by Cross Spectrum? Sorry for asking all these silly questions.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Just another quick question. Would there be any point in having the UMM-6 calibrated by Cross Spectrum? What exactly would improve, in terms of accuracy?

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I downloaded REW months ago. :D It's been sitting patiently in my notebook, so I haven't used it yet. I'm just deciding whether I should go for the UMM-6 mic or the UMIK but you guys are making it...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

So is 80 dB supposed to represent what? Reference level? Would I not want to set the levels to 75 dB's? I don't understand why 80 dB's is the number. Perhaps you could explain. Thanks!

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Is there is a guide on using the UMM-6 with Room EQ wizard? How easy would it be to calibrate the SPL with my SPL meter? I've never used a dedicated condenser mic before.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I plan on using XT32. :) But I may decide at a later stage to get a dedicated sub EQ like the anti-mode. No manually adjustable EQ for me.

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I don't know to what frequency my SPL meter was calibrated. I just know the levels are accurate, but I don't know if response below 20 Hz is reliable or not. Have the CM-140 with the verified...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

So basically the UMM-6 is sort of plug and play ... and has better accuracy below 20 Hz. The UMIK is a little easier to use but to get the response as accurate below 20 Hz will end up costing quite a...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

But correct me if I'm wrong, the UMM-6 requires additional hardware to run? So it's not just a few mouse clicks, it's a few other things as well, right?

But you are telling me that if I bought...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Hi. Basically I'm looking for a "plug and play" solution. I don't want to buy a separate phantom power unit, and a separate sound card. The UMIK is nice because it's self-contained.

Are there any...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I haven't read the entire thread but the gist of it is that this mic is inaccurate for BELOW 20 hz response? So Cross Spectrum could calibrate it to be accurate throughout the frequency response,...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

I've always wanted to get into REW but never could. I had an old RS meter but I could never get it to work properly. This was several years back.

So this new mic ... basically you just plug it...

Re: MiniDSP UMIK-1 Microphone

Sorry if this has been covered but can this mic be used as an SPL meter to set speaker/subwoofer levels using AVR test tones?
