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 the nanoAVR DL is provided. To download the calibration files, look for the 7 digit Serial Number found on the body of the microphone.

Please use a direct link: http://www.minidsp.com/images/umik/70xxxxx.txt  (where xxxxx is the unique mic SN#)

 

Which calibration file should I use and where to point the UMIK-1?

We provide two calibration files to be used depending on your application.

  • For stereo system (e.g. 2ch dirac live, single speaker measurement), use the 0deg file and point the UMIK-1 at the speakers
  • For multichannel system (E.g. 5.1/7.1) or a surround application where multiple speakers are spreadout around the room, use the 90deg file and point the UMIK-1 at the ceiling.

    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,
    Agris

    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
