    Anyone try the new UMIK-2 yet ?

    Glad you are enjoying the UMIK2.... I like my PMIK which I think is the same Capsule. I suspect that better quality mics.... phase response etc. will cause Dirac to make better filters. Dirac's Mathias has told me that there are users reporting this.

    Anyone try the new UMIK-2 yet ?

    My UMIK-1 died after years of good service. I would love to try the UMIK2. I do think that MiniDSP could make more use of us Beta Volunteers..... Ahem...... The standard diameter means it would fit my B&K Calibrator. But I have a PMIK-1 which also has the correct diameter. Looking at the Cal...

    UMIK-2 Sens Factor

    Any UMIK-1 s I checked were 1.8dB off also

    Cancellation between main speakers

    A fascinating display of REWs powers in the right hands. But there is an overwhelming presence of room dacay here which makes frequency response, electronic analysis, or electronic mitigations moot. Acoustic treatment can be quite unobtrusive. e.g. the larger Studiotips SuperChunk occupy...

    Cancellation between main speakers

    The dips are caused by acoustic reflections. Acoustic treatment is the only way to address those. Peaks can be softened by Eq to some extent. Studio Control Rooms often sink the speakers into the Front Wall. No reflections. Next best thing may be placing the speakers as close as possible to the...

    Cancellation between main speakers

    You are welcome. It has been a while, a very welcome heatwave here..... So assistance? Do you have a specific question?

    Cancellation between main speakers

    Interesting. Reiterating JStewart's astute comment:- REW measurements taken with timing reference?

    Dayton UMM-6 vs. UMIK-1 comparison

    I have a little PMIK which I like a lot. It has the right diameter for use with Level Calibrators. I can hide it and an iPhone on me in Nightclubs when doing Noise Surveys etc. etc. I recently ran a quick Dirac Live Cal using V3 software and my PMIK on a new PC laptop. Quite happy with the quick...

    Dayton UMM-6 vs. UMIK-1 comparison

    Mathias, Dirac Live guy, tells me that users have claimed better sonic results using better microphones. It seems likely than an M30 or B&K or Gefell or Neumann would have better responses in every aspect, and this is bound to impact the quality of the filters created.

    Dayton UMM-6 vs. UMIK-1 comparison

    If these Mics and their Calibrations were doing their job right, AND if the exact same room sampling locations were used, the results, the 'sound' should be very similar. BUT repeatable room measurement over multiple locations is virtually impossible. So the 'sound' you speak of, if I am...

    Dayton UMM-6 vs. UMIK-1 comparison

    mostly using Dirac live and the same perfectly flat target. Perfectly flat would be like listening on Audiometric Headphones or in an Anechoic room. HF too hot. The B&K or Harman curves should sound a lot nicer to your and everyones' ears.

    Export IR just as EQ curve (no accoustic component)

    IMO REW has an Acoustic Labs worth of facilities already. Such and addition would hardly be used by many. But something to think about...... does Eq have an IR?
