Product Details

miniDSP UMIK-1 Omni-Directional USB Measurement Calibrated Microphone

 

The miniDSP UMIK-1 is a plug & play measurement microphone from our test and measurement category. This product is developed by miniDSP. This company is specialized in consumer friendly DSP solutions. The UMIK-1 is perfect for acquiring frequency response data for designing speakers, measuring in room response for room correction or home theatre calibration and many more acoustic measurement applications. This product is recommended by Dirac Live to acquire the right data for their Dirac Live Room Correction software.

 

The microphone is powered through USB and features an intergraded 24-bit ADC. This eliminates the need of a pre-amplifier or soundcard. Thanks to the USB Audio class 1 interface there is driverless support for all major operating systems and acoustic measurement software. Each microphone is supplied with an unique calibration file that ensures a flat frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz.

 

What's in the box?

  • 1 x UMIK-1 microphone
  • 1 x shielded USB cable (1.5m)
  • 1 x mini Tripod
  • 1 x foam wind screen

 

Unique Calibration File Download

Each UMIK-1 has an unique calibration file. You can download this calibration file from miniDSP with the serial number from your device.

 

FAQ

Q: There are two different calibration files available for download, which one should I use?

A: For measuring a single speaker or a stereo pair, you use the ‘0deg’ calibration file. The capsule should be pointed at the speakers. For measuring a surround system or multichannel application, you use the 90deg calibration file. The capsule should be pointed at the ceiling

 

Q: What software do I use for measurements?

A: We recommend Room EQ Wizard (REW). This free room acoustics analysis software is perfect for measuring and analysing room and loudspeaker responses. However you can use any software that accepts a calibration file. Other examples are: ARTA, Smaart, Fuzzmeasure, and HolmImpulse

 

Q: Can I use the UMIK-1 with a mobile device?
A:
You can connect the UMIK-1 to an iPad or iPhone through a ‘lightning-to-USB-camera-adapter’. The compatibility with Android devices differs from brand to brand.

 

Q: Can I use the UMIK-1 to measure impedance curves or acquire T/S parameters?

A: The UMIK-1 measures an acoustic signal. Therefor you cannot use the UMIK-1 for T/S parameters or impedance measurements. The Dayton Audio DATS V3 is a perfect companion for acquiring T/S parameters. The Audiomatica CLIO Pocket 2.1 is a great alternative, that combines both acoustic and electrical signal measurements into on package.

    Bel microfono una volta caricato il file di calibrazione e settato Rew Room Acoustics Software funziona alla perfezione.

    Alles super geklappt. Sehr schnelle Lieferung. Sehr gerne wieder einmal. Mikrofon ist top. Macht was es soll. Messen! Ein wirklich lohnenswerter Helfer um Räume auf Ihre HiFi-Tauglichkeit zu messen (prüfen). Aber natürlich sollte man sich auch auf seine Ohren verlassen und nicht nur messen. :-)

    Great product, just as advertised. Worked a treat to help me setup my sub, adjust my speaker positioning, and tune my setup to suit my room's acoustic characteristics.

    Voor zowel speakerbouw als het meten van room acoustics gebruikte ik al geruime tijd een externe microfoon met een usb audio interface. De externe microfoon was ongekalibreerd en daardoor niet altijd even betrouwbaar. Verder maakte een (grote) usb audio interface en losse microfoon het een onhandig geheel om mee te nemen. Zodoende is de UMIK-1 een perfecte oplossing voor dit deze problemen. Een gekailbreerde USB microfoon voor 100 euro is m.i. de prijs zeker waard. Ingebouwde usb zorgt voor een vermindering van elektrische ruis in het meetsysteem en een enkele kabel maakt het gebruik net even makkelijker. Een bonus is dat Room EQ Wizard de microfoon standaard herkend en vraagt om een kalibratiebestand welke vervolgens op de metingen toegepast wordt. Verder is het een stevige metalen behuizing welke degelijk aanvoelt. Enige minpunt is dat in de beschrijving van het artikel een "padded plastic case" staat en deze niet geleverd is.

    I use minidsp with Software REW. Both Things are working good. But appr. every Third measurement FFT brakes down until to 200 Hz. The Amplitude is Not hight enough. Ich down know why. Atherwise it ist very good.

    Thank you for asking.
    The MIC itself is exactly I have been expected. I started to use it, and seem it does its job properly. My basic idea is to use it for home theatre adjustments as information gathering tool, and it works. I like its simplicity. That’s all for beginning.
    All respect,

    No hassle, plug and play, easy to download correction file, REW support, what more could you want? Great quality build and portable since it is usb and does not need phantom power. Comes with a simple, small stand of good quality and the USB cable it comes with is a good length. Accuracy of captured results are in line with professional results. Considering price, service and user-friendliness it would be hard to find a better calibration microphone.

  • TM By Tom on 01-11-2017 13:10

    5 / 5

    I give this product 5 starts for several reasons
    -Super easy to use
    -Can be used for all kinds of different measurements (speaker measurement/room measurement etc.)
    -All the accesoires included in the package have an high quality feel

    I used this product to measure my speakers. It took a bit of time to use al the different options and to see which options gave me the best/most accurate measurement. It was fun to do and thanks to the easy software the learning curve was not to steep. The only things that were slightly missing is an bigger stand for the mic and an longer USB cable. But that is not something you could expect for this price
