You can change the settings of the Mikme Microphone without the Mikme App. You need use the Mikme settings file builder.
1 - Open the Mikme settings file builder
Clicking the link above will open the file builder in your web browser. From there, you can change the Mikme settings according your needs.
Click the blue button at the bottom to save the mikme.ini file to the downloads folder of your computer.
2 - Copy the mikme.ini file to your Mikme Microphone
- Go to the downloads folder of your computer and copy the mikme.ini file
- Paste the mikme.ini file into the root directory of your Mikme Microphone.
To complete this step, the Mikme must be connected to your computer via USB cable and mounted as an external storage (see how to connect your Mikme via USB here).
3 - Eject the Mikme
After the file is copied to the Mikme, eject the microphone safely and the microphone will automatically restart.
The settings will now be adjusted to the value you entered in the mikme.ini file. Please note, that after restarting the Mikme the mikme.ini file you created will be removed — this is normal.
The Mikme Microphone gives you three sampling rate options for recording locally if you choose the filetype "wav":
- 44.1 kHz
- 48 kHz and
- 96 kHz.
All three will produce high-frequency, studio-quality sound. And the ideal sampling rate is debatable among engineers. Note that Mikme's default, 44.1 kHz, is already the same sampling rate CDs and high-quality MP3s are produced.
Also, know that using a higher sampling rate will take up more space on your Mikme Microphone's internal hard drive.
The data will be stored as a .wav file on the Mikme, and must be transferred via USB cable to a computer.
The Mikme Microphone gives you only 1 sampling rate option for recording locally if you choose the filetype "m4a":
- 44.1 kHz
Please be aware that when using the microphone in conjunction with the Mikme iOS App, the sample rate is automatically set to 44.1 kHz and the file type is always m4a.
