 MG 5072

Introducing ambiMIK-1, an affordable First Order Ambisonic (FOA) microphone with embedded preamp, Analog to Digital converters (ADC) and USB processor. This compact solution enables high sample rates (up to 32bit/192kHz) in a portable package. With applications ranging from VR/AR & music recording, the ambiMIK-1 doesn’t require any bulky external preamp or XLR cables. A simple USB cable to your tablet/laptop and you’re ready to go!

With its 4 low noise 14mm capsules, its slim aluminum body and nylon protective frame, the ambiMIK-1 package was engineered for durability and optimal performance without breaking the bank.
Last but not least, miniDSP partnered with Dirac Research for the design of a VST plugin specifically calibrated for the ambiMIK-1 with over 1200 measurements. The controls include Yaw/Pitch/Roll/Output gain and Output Format (B format or Binaural).
