Dirac Live® 3 and the Dirac Live® mobile apps require an omnidirectional calibration microphone with an associated calibration file, connected either directly to the Dirac-enabled device or to the computer via USB.
We suggest the miniDSP UMIK-1 microphone due to its ease of use and universal drivers.
However, there are many other options available, given these follow some general microphone guidelines (below). Please note that the measurement microphone is not included in the Dirac Live® Room Correction software purchase. Here is a short list of validated mics:
- miniDSP UMIK-1 USB Measurement Calibrated Microphone
- Dayton Audio EMM-6 Electret Measurement Microphone,Silver
- Beyerdynamic MM-1 Electret Condenser Omnidirectional Measurement Microphone with Linear Frequency Response
- Earthworks M30 Measurement Microphone
