Hello guys,

i'm wondering, how well the UMIK-1 performs at 90° measurements, so pointed up to the ceiling. I want to do such a measurement for getting the total room response of direct and indirect sonic at listening spot.
Does the calibration file include a calibration for 90° or is it just for 0°?
Could You show some graphs of variances that UMIKs have in 90°?
Thanks for Your answer.

The calibration is for on-axis measurement only. We don't provide a 90deg measurement I'm afraid.
If you need it, you should seriously consider our US partner CrossSpectrum who is providing multiple calibration files for the UMIK-1.

If you haven't purchased the mic, yet, getting an individual 90 degree calibration from Cross Spectrum Labs is definitely worth the extra $20.

If you already have the mic, though, you can use my utility to translate your individual 0 degree measurement to a 90 degree measurement:
