DM-1001 is a digital microphone system, with AES/EBU and S/PDIF outputs.
The microphone uses Milab's rectangular large dual membrane capsule.
The two capsule membranes have their own AD-converters.
After that the signals go to a DSP.
This makes it possible for Milab's unique solution:
In the DSP, the polar pattern is calculated from a mix of the front and back signals in free settings.
There are also programmes for digital filtering in the DSP.
The microphone is controlled and supplied from a separate control unit.
The control unit has a switch for standard polar patterns.
A computer interface makes it possible to connect the
With this software the free choice of polar pattern can be set,
and then saved in the control unit.
[Ö] the sound of this microphone is very
satisfying. Nowhere near as clinical as other
microphones that put the A-DC straight after the
capsule, the DM-1001 manages to sound characterful
without being coloured. One if its most impressive
traits is the distinct lack of tonal colouration as sound
sources move off-axis to the directional patterns [Ö]
Transient response is also very good, and the
microphone manages to resolve low level high
frequency detail extremely well, even with sources a
substantial distance away. These characteristics
make the DM-1001 one of the most useable and
nicest sounding room microphones Iíve used for
quite some time.
