The Audix USB12 gives you studio-quality sound right at your desktop without any software. A stylish low profile desktop gooseneck microphone designed for recording voice and acoustic instruments directly into the computer via the USB port, the USB12 features a 12 mm modular threaded capsule for pinpoint accuracy. The USB12 is a plug and play microphone supporting 44.1k and 48k sample rates for both PC and Mac platforms.

Other features of the USB12 include a membrane switch for “steady on” or “momentary on”, a heavy-duty base for stability, a double gooseneck for precise positioning, a headphone jack for real-time monitoring, and a bass roll-off filter to help reduce unwanted room noise or boominess.

The USB12, which includes a 6′ USB cable, is available from authorized Audix dealers in a matte black finish or a white finish for a suggested retail price of $179.
