Is phase information necessary for UMIK-1? 6 years 2 months ago #26434

I'm new to sound testing, and have been using the OmniMic system, whos calibratin file includes what appears to be somewhat linear phase information, as found when the information was imported into SoundEasy. (Image 1)

When I imported the UMIK-1 calibration file, I observed what I would consider erratic behaviours in the phase response - which I found most interesting for the lack of a 3rd column within the configuration file! (Image 2) Very confusing. And the information doesn't appear when I uncheck the "include 3rd column" option on the import)

This, of course, made it seemingly pointless to perform SoundEasy's Hilbert-Bodi transform function on the Umik-1.

My perception, as a non-expert, is that phase information would be necessary. Is this the case? And, if required, how would one go about obtaining proper phase information?

Thank you.

Why are you doing a Hilbert-Bode transform on the calibration file?

As a newb, just following along with some instructions found here: chadgray.info/soundeasy/. Not sure if totally necessary - but giving me knowledge for doing the HB when it comes to speakers, none-the-less.

I can see how it wouldn't be necessary - though it is interesting that both microphones peel off at about 19100Hz as far ability to receive signal.

The UMIK-1 file doesn't have a third column, so you would need to uncheck the third column when importing. I guess you could synthesize the phase data, there just isn't a phase "reference" to compare it to.
