Binary Acoustic Technology miniMIC

Product Description

The miniMIC was conceived at the April 2013 Western Bat Working Group meeting after realizing the needs bat biologists have for a lower cost, but still high quality microphone we can use for active monitoring. A few weeks later, BCM received the first two miniMIC demo units and proceeded to test them the remainder of that summer.

The miniMIC is the latest addition to Binary Acoustic Technologies professional grade ultrasonic receiver and microphone product line. The miniMIC is small, portable, and easy to carry.  It employs a hemispherical, wide bandwidth ultrasonic element along with ultrasonic to digital conversion technology to produce a high quality, digitally sampled, acoustic stream that is captured directly into a Windows tablet, a laptop or netbook running Windows XP or higher, or a Mac via Parallels for recording and analysis.

The miniMIC is specifically designed for applications such as bat recording and vocalization analysis where wide spatial coverage and a wide ultrasonic frequency range are desired.  It employs low noise circuitry along with 16-bit digital converters to achieve high sensitivity along with a large dynamic range. It is capable of detecting bats at a distance of up to one hundred and forty feet.

Using the included SPECT'R capture software, up to 4 BAT USB microphones can be connected to a laptop and record simultaneously! This microphone is also fully compatible with SonoBatLIVE.

miniMIC is better at:

  • Active recording/viewing live full spectrum activity, and then selectively recording only the bat pass of interest.
  • Mobile transects; the hemispherical coverage of this microphone is ideal for moving transects and captures significantly more pulses in files than directional microphones and lower quality omni-directional mics.
  • Educational demos; people are entranced by the "campfire effect" of watching bat activity go by live.
  • Shorter-term Passive monitoring; we enjoyed using the miniMIC almost nightly to monitor was what really happening during mist net projects. The miniMIC element is weather resistant, but the USB port is not. For long term passive monitoring in this family of detectors, the AR125EXT or AR125FD is a better choice.
  • Because of it's hemispherical field of view, this is a good microphone for mobile transects coupled with SonoBatLIVE or SPECT'R software.
  • Compatible with SonoBatLIVE and Bat Recorder Android app
  • Compatible with Myotisoft Transect
  • Compatible with SonoBat Bat Call Analysis software
