From the website: "NOTE(30/11/2020): Calibration file download is currently disabled as our team realized of a formatting bug and need to update to the correct formating. Stay tuned for release this week. Thanks for your patience!"

So, not available yet, although "this week" has probably ended in HongKong.

No firmware update yet. I wanted to play with it over the weekend.

@Devteam, it seems like the updated calibration files are taking longer than your original estimate. Is there an unexpected difficulty? Is there a revised estimate as to when the calibration files will be available for downloading?

Dear All

Thanks for all your patience! As a lot of places in the world right now, working under Covid19 is a bit more complex than usual and leads to some delays... We also wanted to take great care to review each of the cal files we re-issued. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Both the firmware and new cal files are now available under the user downloads section and under the UMIK-2 product page.
a) Make sure to follow the steps of the manual to upgrade the firmware of your UMIK-2 to remove the default HPF. Please take extra care to make sure you do NOT have any other miniDSP devices connected to your PC/MAC during the upgrade. Thanks.

b) Download your new CAL from the UMIK-2 product page.

c) User manual was updated in few places with regards to sample rate. Please remember that if you use higher sample rate on REW and select WDM driver, you need to make sure to update under your OS the sample rate due to the Java Virtual Machine. That requirement doesn't apply to ASIO.

If you have some issues, please contact us via our support portal (support.minidsp.com).

"Unfortunately Dirac Live doesn't translate this dBFS to dBSPL at this stage hence the warning that UMIK-2 is "less sensitive". Indeed the exact same SPL is played and if correctly calibrated, there is enough signal. For the time being, while Dirac is implementing the SPL calibration (similar to REW), we've been advised by Dirac Team to not worry about the lower level reading. Future release of Dirac Live will hopefully solve this warning knowing there is plenty enough signal."

Any word from Dirac on supporting UMIK-2?

Is this a quote from Dirac? If yes, could you please provide a link to where the quote came from. I am unaware of any issues with using the UMIK-2 when running a Dirac Live calibration. I am able to set the levels properly, and the speaker output levels following the calibration are exactly as expected.

BTW, I just sent my UMIK-2 to Cross Spectrum Labs for a custom calibration. I will post a comparison of the custom cal files with the files from MiniDSP when I get it back.

Thanks. I thought I was subscribed to that thread, but it seems like this forum doesn't send out email notices for new posts.

It's this same thread where we are now, page 1.

Yes, I see that now, thanks. I guess when I read that post originally, the takeaway was that we could ignore the issue for the time being when using Dirac, which is probably why I didn't recognize the issue. Not sure why the OP is concerned. As I mentioned, I was able to run a successful calibration using the UMIK-2.

Hallo, ich habe mir für das UMIK-2 eine 90-Grad- Datei von einem Fachhändler erstellen lassen. Es gibt nur minimale Abweichungen von der Minidsp.com 90grad Datei :)

Google Translate:


Hello, I got a 90 degree file for the UMIK-2 from a specialist dealer. There are only minor deviations from the Minidsp.com 90 degree file :)

Thanks for all the bug fix!
So can I safely assume that if I buy the UMIK-2 today, all the above mentioned bugs have been fixed and I will get UMIK-2 with the latest firmware?

Thanks!

I'm hoping for an answer on this, as well. I don't know if I should get the UMIK-1 or 2.

As I believe that I have mentioned before, I have both the UMIK-1 and the UMIK-2, both with custom calibration files from Cross Spectrum Labs. After some detailed comparisons, I see very little difference in REW measurements between the two. I do not think that any of the differences would result in audible differences in the results, so I believe either mic would be a good choice.

The initial issues with the UMIK-2 have indeed been resolved.
