        miniDSP UMIK-1 plug & play microphone

        The miniDSP UMIK-1 is a plug & play measurement microphone for both testing and measurment from our test and measurement category. This product is developed by miniDSP, a company that 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. Next to its measurement skills, the UMIK-1 can also be used for recording. The miniDSP UMIK-1 is recommended by Dirac Live to acquire the right data for their Dirac Live Room Correction software.


        Its compact and user-friendly design, along with its compatibility with various measurement software and platforms, has made it a popular choice among audio enthusiasts, professionals, and researchers.


        Great compatibility

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


        Unique Calibration File Download

        All UMIK-1 are calibrated with a unique calibration file. In addition, a unique auto-generated 90-degree calibration file for use with surround system applications. To download the calibration files, look for the 7 digit Serial Number found on the body of the microphone. The file can be downloaded here.


        What's included with this product?

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


        FAQ about the miniDSP UMIK-1 

        What are the main differences between the UMIK-1 and the UMIK-2?

        The miniDSP UMIK-2 is improved on analog, digital and functional aspects compared to the UMIK-1. The larger capsule enables better noise and distortion performance. The improved analog performance is preserved by the high quality ADC. The new USB interface allows for easy software controllable settings, such as gain control and sample rate selection. 


        Can I use the UMIK-1 with a mobile device?

        You can connect the miniDSP UMIK-1 to an iPad or iPhone through a ‘lightning-to-USB-camera-adapter’. The compatibility with Android devices differs from brand to brand.


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

        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.


        What software do I use for measurements?

        We recommend using the Room EQ Wizard (REW) when you're performing an acoustics analysis. 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


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

        The miniDSP 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 one package.
