If the UMIK manufacturer has all the calibration data, why not offer us UMIK owners a choice to either use those below 20Hz calibration values or not? Certainly it has to be better than having no values at all in that range. I don't care if its not within the tolerance of the upper freqs (40Hz-2000Hz), as typically these mic responses below 20Hz are going to be far more variable and unpredictable and in that case anything would be better than having nothing for those values. If you make them available online we UMIK owners can then decide for ourselves whether we wish to use them or not... the way it is now, some third party guy from half way around the world is making that decision for us, it this really necessary?

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Agreed- at least if I have the data, I can elect whether to use it or not. Thank you!

I also agree, I was pretty disappointed when there was no data below 20hz. When I originally bought the umik, I was hoping it would mimic the first batch (calibration data down to 5hz). I haven't even used the mic yet, because of all these calibration file issues.

My mic is on the way:) , but it certainly would be a nice option to have it measure below 20Hz, even if it's not as accurate in that range, as long as it still measures properly from 20-20. This isn't a complaint, but merely a suggestion. Looking forward to getting my mic:woohoo:

I would also agree, there is certainly value in having the option for this data.

It is easy enough as a user to remove those entries from the calibration file, but not having a choice may be important enough to some buyers, that they would look elsewhere instead of purchase the UMIK-1.

Let alone the perception the company has created by providing it with early released products, then changing the spec and calibration files for later batches.

Agreed. I don't want a 3rd party making this decision for me. I suggest you release the below 20Hz data.

One more YES vote for the cause. Ordered my UMIK-1 last Saturday 23th.

Hoping when it arrives here(Argentina) I really get what I've paid for, so that INCLUDES a proper calibration file! or at least the option to choose from another one containing my 20hz below data too.
Since it was my main reason to choose UMIK-1 over competition due to my particular needs.

Regards.

Dear All,

Yes we do have some updates. Thanks again for your patience.
We just made an announcement here.
www.minidsp.com/forum/2-announcements/86...readings-in-rew#8607

@Chisas, note that the datasheet of the product was updated a long time ago (2month) to reflect that change on the calibration file.

Hoping this info helps and thanks again for your patience.

Thank-you for the response. I think all your customers will appreciate the behind-the-scenes effort on yours ( and John's ) part. I checked out the announcement and tried to link to the updated file, but all I got was a 'Not Found' message, so the link isn't working, it looks like a server error. Again, thank-you for your efforts, I will check the link later.

hello Nitro
It worked for me. Make sure you replace XXX in the webaddress by the corresponding numbers in the serial number of your UMIK-1.

DevTeam, thank you for your efforts however it appears that the new calibration file (down to 10Hz) is a completely different file than my current old (stops at 20Hz) calibration file. Could you please take a look at the two an explain to me why they are soooo different... #7000275 Thank You...
