USB12

USB Condenser Vocal Microphone

The USB12 is a miniaturized USB condenser microphone used for recording voice and acoustic instruments directly into a computer via the USB port. This mic is designed to naturally capture and reproduce vocals and instruments with stunning detail. The USB12 is clear, flexible, easy to use, and has an excellent sound response.

With a uniformly controlled cardioid polar pattern, the USB12 provides isolation and control at the sound source with a smooth, accurate response over a frequency range of 50 Hz – 16 kHz.

The USB12 cardioid condenser microphone supports both 44.1k and 48k sample rates for playback and recording. This high definition condenser microphone features a push-to-talk button, “steady on” or “momentary on” as well as a headphone jack for real-time monitoring. The USB12 is also equipped with a bass roll-off filter to control unwanted low-frequency signals.

Supplied accessories include a 6′ USB cable and an external foam windscreen.
