Product Details

Dayton Audio UMM-6 USB Measurement Microphone 

The Dayton Audio UMM-6 professional-quality USB measurement and recording microphone is designed to work with industry-standard third party recording and measurement software. The rugged construction and compact size make it the perfect companion for audio professionals who must work on-location performing acoustic analysis, monitoring audio levels, or recording. Each UMM-6 is calibrated individually using a laboratory-standard reference microphone, for consistent, repeatable PC measurements that match the level of precision offered previously only by expensive stand-alone microphones and measurement equipment. Works great with the Room EQ Wizard software.

A carrying case with foam insert, 10 ft. USB connection cable, and a mini tripod mic stand are included with the UMM-6. 

Calibration Note: A unique serialized calibration file is available for the UMM-6. This calibration file can be used by most audio-analysis software. To obtain your individual calibration file, visit Dayton Audio's website where you will be prompted to enter the serial number from the body of your UMM-6. After entering the serial number, your download will start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, great service.I bought this recently, I am in Australia. I was suprised when it arrived so quickly, in secure boxing. The mic itself is a good product for anyone looking for one that doesn't require an external USB audio interface, Dayton provide a calibration file unique to every microphone. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UMM-6 Measurement Mic ReviewFirst thing is " lets realize this is a sub $100.00 Mic and you get much more for that in my opinion. Case works fine , Clip is Fine, Calibration file was close for most people it will be more than adequate.If your doing quick work like figuring out RT 60 times with let's say Audacity or some other freeware the mic will pay for itself the very first use.In all good cheap USB mic with better than decent attributes for less than $100.00 why wouldn't you own one?Last note to all " Please don't expect proper measurements with a solid mic stand as your base " You must isolate the unit from a stand " even if you rig up a bungee with rubber bands, NO the carpet is not considered isolation" Rock On!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems to work wellUnfortunately I don't have any other measurement equipment to compare its results, but I used it to calibrate the listening experience of my home stereo system, and the results were great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly works with MathAudio Room EQ for FoobarThe key benefit of this measurement mic is that it does not require a separate adapter or mixing board, it plugs directly into the computer. Its calibration file is compatible with the free MathAudio Room EQ component for Foobar2000. In fact, I have a room correction system at the price of this microphone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good measurement microphoneThis is a nice instrumentation/measurementmicrophone, packaged with all required hardwareand software, at an affordable price. For thebenefit of those considering purchasing it, Ioffer some information not in the productdescription:1. It is intended for sound level measurements,not for recording. It has a wide dynamic range(I think it's 135 dB) and so is not particularlysensitive for voice or acoustic musicalinstruments. Still, given its flat spectralresponse, it could prove useful for recordingloud performances.2. The file format for use on Windows PCs is*.wma.3. I agree with another reviewer that the 5/16"mounting screw on the tripod is non-standard.I would have preferred a conventional 1/4", too.4. The entire user's manual is one pagelong. Given that it is a plug-and-play USBdevice, that is all that is really needed formost applications, but don't expect much interms of technical documentation.
