UMIK-1 Omni-Directional USB Measurement Calibrated Microphone

The UMIK-1 is an omni-directional USB measurement microphone providing Plug & Play acoustic measurement. From speaker & room acoustic measurement to recording, this microphone provides low noise and accurate results you can rely on. Forget about driver installation, OS compatibility and un-calibrated mics. The Umik-1 is a USB Audio class 1 device automatically recognized by all Operating Systems (Windows/Mac) and Ipad with Camera Connection Kit. It is provided with a unique calibration file based on the serial number to insure an accurate measurement. Combined with our recommended acoustic measurement software, it is the perfect match for a plug&play measurement system.




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

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.

Vargiu J. Posted on 15 April 2019 at 15:29

very good mic for calibration, accurate with the calibration data

Jan H. Posted on 3 April 2019 at 16:21

Doet wat het moet doen. Werkt prima i.c.m. Room EQ Wizard.

Decent. Does what it says it should do.
Excellent integration with REW.

An absolutely excellent measurement tool for my application, meaning "Dirac Live".
Highly recommended and easy to use etc.

Easy to use and does exactly what’s needed. Come with both forwards and 90 degree calibration files which is handy.

Easy to use with REW, great results.

Agris S. Posted on 24 November 2018 at 17:33

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,

Easy use, quick results. I'm working on car stereos with it.

Andrew A. Posted on 27 June 2018 at 08:02

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.

John V. Posted on 20 June 2018 at 17:11

Very high quality bit of kit. Well packed, nice design, and seems to do the job very well. I used it with Dirac room correction.

Lucio B. Posted on 13 June 2018 at 08:17

I'm going to use with the Amarra player

Tom Posted on 1 November 2017 at 13:10

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
