Frequently Asked Questions

miniDSP’s UMIK-1 and UMIK-2 omnidirectional USB measurement microphones work perfectly with REW, Dirac Live and most other measurement software. Both models come with individual calibration files for horizontal and vertical placement, to provide highly accurate measurements in either orientation.

The lower cost UMIK-1 microphone has a sample rate of 48 kHz. This allows it to measure audio frequencies up to 24 kHz. It covers the entire audible band and provides more than enough bandwidth for subwoofer integration or room correction duties, where attention is mostly focussed on the low frequencies.

For those who want to understand the behaviour of their speakers or room beyond the audible band and into the ultrasonic, miniDSP offers the UMIK-2. UMIK-2 is equipped with a larger, more sensitive microphone capsule and a higher end analogue to digital converter, which provides a maximum sample rate of 192 kHz. This enables UMIK-2 to reliably measure frequencies up to 96 kHz (two full octaves more than UMIK-1).

miniDSP UMIK-1 comes with two calibration files. Use the 0 degree calibration file when orientating the microphone horizontally and the 90 degree file when orientating the microphone vertically.

It depends on the task you are performing. For room correction duties in stereo systems, miniDSP recommends orientating the microphone horizontally and pointing the microphone between the speakers. For multi-channel systems, miniDSP recommends orientating the microphone vertically instead.

You will get accurate results with either horizontal or vertical orientation, as long as you are using the appropriate calibration file. We actually favour using vertical orientation for room correction of both stereo and multi-channel systems. Just remember to use the 90 degree calibration file to get accurate results.

If you are designing a new speaker or an active crossover for an existing speaker, then you should point your microphone directly at the speaker and use the 0 degree calibration file.
