Hi,
I bought a minidsp 2x4 nearly a year ago and didn't really had time to play with it for multiple reason but I finaly have time to play with it now. I would love to play with a good mic and REW for calibrating but my question is: is the mic good for voice/guitar recording. Is there a noticeable delay because of the usb or??? My wife always wanted a little''studio'' for recording so i'm wondering if i can do a win-win christmas gift with it.
Thanks in advanced
Alex

Alex,

Sure I guess that you could indeed use it for a recording microphone. Note however that voice microphone typically tend to have a "color" to the sound (i.e. equalization) to make your voice sound a certain way. A measurement microphone is the oposite. It's meant to be the flattest possible to insure that your measurement data isn't colored.

However, you could certainly use the Umik as a recording mic. You may have to use some plug-in on your PC( e.g. ProTools) to later on tweak the voice if you want a different coloration of the sound.

Makes sense.
