Dayton Audio's UMM-6 USB measurement microphone matches the level of precision previously offered only by expensive measurement equipment.
- Precision condenser microphone for critical measurement and recording applications
- Connects to your PC or Mac via USB port
- True omnidirectional pattern and calibrated flat frequency response
- Rugged construction with high-quality components
- Compact design; includes sturdy carrying case with foam insert
- Compatible with most industry-standard measurement software
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.
Combining the UMM-6 and Room EQ Wizard provides you with an array of tools that are great for all audio engineers.

- Room resonance analysis to determine the frequencies and decay times of modal resonances with pole-zero plots of the response and any filters applied
Frequency Response is a curve that shows how strongly an audio system reproduces different parts of the frequency range. A frequency response is related to its "impulse response" (the pressure signal that a speaker or sound system would make if it were fed by an extremely short pulse).
The purpose of a Impulse Response is to reveal how the frequency response of a loudspeaker is affected by the room at the location of the microphone.
Harmonic distortion is the unwanted addition of new tones to the original audio signal. These distortion products occur at multiples of the original frequency and are centered on the harmonics of the original. For example, a 1kHz fundamental that has been subjected to harmonic distortion will produce energy at 2kHz (2nd harmonic), 3kHz (3rd harmonic), 4kHz (4th harmonic), and so on.
Cumulative Spectral Decay
A waterfall (or CSD) illustrates, on a 3-D graph, how a speakers' energy decays or is radiated over a range of frequencies. Waterfall plots are used by driver and loudspeaker designers for driver selection, to identify resonances or reflections, and to view driver and waveguide behavior.
The EQ window allows you to customize and visualize the effects of filters based on the measurements taken with the UMM-6
SPL Meter / Spectrum Analyzer
The SPL (sound pressure level) meter allows you to measure how loud your source is while the spectrum analyzer shows you the relative SPL of frequency bands.
Use the Oscilloscope to view any sound waveforms. These might include music, your voice, or waveforms played by loudspeakers.
Use the Bass Decay analyzer to measure how bass notes decay in a room. This is a great measurement to understand how the room affects the low end.
Calibrate Your UMM-6
A unique serialized calibration .txt file will be available for your UMM-6. Once you receive your microphone, Visit the Dayton Audio calibration download tool where you will be prompted to enter the serial number found on the base of your calibrated UMM-6. After entering the serial number, your unique calibration .txt file will be available for you to download.
