What mic stand best for GLM mic ?

Padawan Posts: 61 Join Date: 4/8/09 Recent Posts
I feel the need to buy a mic stand, as my sofa is in the way, and I have not figured out what mic stand is shown in the GLM photo ?



What mic stand is recommended for the GLM mic ? How to attach the GLM mic then with that foam thing, if I cannot use that stand in the picture above ? Right now I use two tiny pillows to hold the mic and to decouple it. As my last two 8240s arrived today to complete the set of 5, I want to do the measurement professionally :ugeek:

Hi Andreas,

The stand would be a Konig & Meyer Mic stand.

For my calibrations i use a standard K&M mic stand, for your own use you may want to consider a boom stand with a fitting that will allow the mic to be placed vertically, i have not been able to locate one yet.

Steve, so that joint fits directly into the foam pad supplied with the GLM mic ?

Usually mics are hold with clamps, right ?But the GLM mic is so tiny, that is why I worry when I just order a mic stand with arm, that I have no clue how the mic is hold in place/mounted ? The picture from Genelec implies a simply straight stand, which I cannot use due to my sofa in the way....

Anybody with a picture how they mounted their GLM mic ?

Hi,

The GLM package comes with a rubber piece that has two holes: the other one holds the mic and the other one fits to a standard mic screw thread. That should hold the mic quite firmly. :)

Thx Illka,

so I will simply get a nice K+M stand with an arm and know now it fits somehow. I may order online and as stupid as it may have sounded, but I never had a mic stand before :oops:

If you want to use a boom, you will need the universal adaptor i linked to get the mic vertical again.

GLM comes with the rubber mic clamp which pushes onto a standard 3/8 mic thread.

In the picture you linked originally, it is simply a standard mic stand showing the rubber GLM mic clamp and mic.

Here is the pic of the adaptor from K&M's web site. In the description it states that the adaptor is supplied with a 1/4" and 3/8" male thread.



Hope this helps. I will go and try and source one of these adaptors for my use. :D

Hi Steve,

the stuff came today. The 210 K+M stand is a bit high. I would recommend from the experience of today a lower one, but will keep it. The joint would be even better, if it could compensate more than 90 degrees upwards. That spare silver thread in the joint fits into the GLM foam hole, otherwise the foam hole would be too big and the foam will not fit the joint's screw.

Hi Andreas,

I suppose i should have said a stand "like" this one, sorry that it was slightly high for your use :oops: Are you measuring at your seated ear height?

In most applications, the boom ends up with a slight rise, so the Universal joint doesn't need to extend past 90 degrees. You may be able to trip some material from the bottom of the stand, where it attaches to the feet?

Jack, that goose neck looks sweet ;)

Steve, I noticed I can simply turn the K+M ball head joint around and compensate for that slight negative angle I have towards my head/sweetspot with the tall stand. Cannot tell yet, if it makes any difference for the measurements and whether the joint/joint screw handle is too close that way to the mic to introduce any reflections of any significance. I do not think so, as with GLM one mostly measures long wavelength and I will give it a try with GLM that way later in the comming days. Here is a picture.

How come Vista says my microphone is unplugged? My desktop microphone is plugged into the mic jack, but when I check in Recording Devices, it says there's no microphone plugged in. Is there anyway I can enable it, am I doing something wrong, or is this just a Vista software problem? Thanks ahead of time.

Hi,

What exactly are you trying to do with the desktop microphone? You can't for example run AutoCal with it, instead you need the GLM interface and microphone.
