Thanks. I'm not sure where or what the context was when I read about the driver, maybe it was a setting in REW when using the UMM-6.

BTW, is there a guide (not the REW Help) or post/thread with a few tips for setting up the UMM-6 in REW? I haven't found much.

Thanks!

Hi. Well, I haven't found a guide for setting up the UMM-6 specifically, if that's what you mean. I actually don't have it yet. I was looking at that, or the UMIK-1. I'm leaning towards the UMM-6 for below 20Hz data, even though my sub only goes a hair below.

Member AustinJerry over at AVS has created a very useful guide for setting up REW in Windows with the new USB mics as well as an HDMI connection. It can be found here

Looks like a world takeover.:bigsmile: Curious about your plans and intentions...
My intention of course... is to take over the world!

I will be selling calibrated (well, calibrated by me) UMIK-1 mics. miniDSP has graciously extended volume pricing to me, but I can only get whatever they can spare, so quantities will be limited.

Pricing TBD - it will be higher than what miniDSP charges, but I don't know how much higher yet, but I expect pricing to be in line with UMM-6 pricing. In lieu of an HTS discount, I'd like to maybe try some sort of commission to the Shack, but I have to talk to with Sonnie first. As for when I will get around to doing all of this... I don't know. Right now we are completely overwhelmed, in fact I've temporarily suspended all mic sales to give us a chance to catch up with the back orders. It won't happen this week for sure.

That sounds great, looking forward to UMIK-1 availability through you!

FYI as of right now, I am no longer selling UMM-6 mics to overseas customers (they will still be available to US customers). I had hoped with the most recent batch Dayton had overcome the problem with the barrel breaking off, but one just snapped off in my hand as I was trying to calibrate it. Every time I have to send a replacement overseas I take a hit with the mic plus the shipping and I'm not willing to do that anymore. The hit isn't as bad for domestics mics so I'll still keep selling them to US addresses.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

It looks like part express has the Dayton Audio UMM6 on sale for $70 plus shipping. Is this a good price to pick it up at? Or is the cross spectrum calibrated miniDSP UMIK-1 a better buy for ~$30 more?

I would personally purchase from Cross - Spectrum because of the calibration, nothing against Parts Express, just that there calibration has doubt out there.

Cross - Spectrum has the UMM-6 as well (last i heard) i would email Herb and discuss with him.

But i think either would be fine.

Just placed an order for a calibrated Dayton UMM-6. Finally going to retire the RS Analog SPL meter. (Or let the kids use it as a ray-gun)

Going the REW route but a new user so much learning curve ahead and plenty to read up about.
