Applications

Operating System Name File Description Version Release Date Download
OS X EigenStudio®

A standalone application to control the Eigenmike® microphone hardware (PGA gain and calibration) and beamformer processing. Functions such as steering, changing beampatterns, recording and monitoring inputs and output, etc. in a very intuitive manner are provided. Plus up to 4th order HOA encoding and very basic audio file editing. Version 2.9.11 and later support the optional MADI daughter board.

OS X em32setGain

The em32setGain application provides a simple interface to control the Eigenmike® microphone array hardware (PGA gain and calibration). This allows for the recording of calibrated microphone signals at optimum levels with 3rd party DAWs (Don't use em32setGain together with EigenStudio® since the latter one provides its own hardware control). em32setGain is provided for convinience. The preferred way to set the PGA gain and calibration is through EigenStudio® or EigenUnits®

OS X EigenUnits®

A VST plugin suite. The EigenUnits® plugins can be used in conjunction with the em32 Eigenmike® microphone array hardware. Currently available are: A) EigenUnit-em32-Encoder: encodes the sensor signals into 4th order Eigenbeams (HOA signals, spherical harmonics). B) EigenUnit-em32-Beamformer: takes the sensor signals and applies beamforming, with pattern, order, and steering direction control. C) EigenUnit-em32-Control: controls PGA level and sensor calibration via the em32/EMIB hardware though a Firewire or MADI connection. This package also includes some examples. Please consult the manual for more information.
