Microphone stand
« on: August 12, 2017, 15:14 »
I finally got around to doing some room measurements and bought a UMIK-1 microphone and installed REW. Initially I tried using a camera tripod to mount the UMIK-1, but as anyone who has tried this quickly finds out, the screw diameters for cameras and mikes are quite different. I found a mike stand from City Music - just under $20, and it works perfectly for me. You use a coin to remove the screw from the UMIK-1 mike holder and then just screw the mike holder onto the stand. I thought that at the price it would be a little shaky, but it's actually quite sturdy.

I'm using a mic stand as well for both rew and audyssey mic. There is a camera mount adapter for mic stands so you can attach the audyssey mic to it. Much more flexible setup in terms of positioning the mic location.

The mic stand is the best, so easy to measure with umik mic or audyssey mic. Just get the clip, very stable and pin point accuracy in terms of height and mobility. Less obstruction too.

Can tilt90 deg, hold straight, front firing, all sorts of dimension

Quite cheap from tao Bao

Will tripod and the above mic stand reflect the sound wave? thats why I prefer to use long chopstick. Mount my UMIK-1 mic with rubber band
Then since it is quite tiny hence easily for me to insert in between sofa padding.
