The AmbiMIK-1 from MiniDSP is a FOA (First Order Ambisonic) ambisonic microphone with built-in preamplifier, analog-to-digital converter (ADC) and USB processor. This compact, portable solution provides high-resolution sound capture up to 32bit 192kHz. Suitable for Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) or music recording applications, the AmbiMIK-1 does not require the use of an external preamplifier or XLR cables. A simple USB cable connects the microphone to a computer or tablet.
With 4 low noise 14mm low noise capsules, a thin Aluminium body and a Nylon protective cover, the AmbiMIK-1 has been designed and engineered to offer excellent durability and performance at an affordable price. In addition, MiniDSP has worked with Dirac Research to develop a VST plugin calibrated specifically for the AmbiMIK-1 using more than 1200 measurements. The controls allow to act on the Yaw, Pitch and Roll parameters, as well as on the output gain or the output format (B or Binaural format).
