High Quality XLR to USB Interface for HIgh Quality Recordings
22 July 2011
Summary: The Recording I got using this with my Microphone was crisp, clear, Noise-Free, & High Fidelity. I had do a recording in my studio for my news program director, and this sure did the trick. It's just a XLR-USB Adapter Interface.
Summary: I'm using this with my MXL V57M and cannot get a usable signal to record with. I'm using garageband on my macbook pro and have all levels turned all the way up (both in the software and on the MicMate itself - gain selector switch set to "HI") and the mic is barely giving a signal.
Summary: This little device was just what I was looking for. Wanting to upgrade my sound quality, I started looking and looking for mics and whatever it took to get some decent sound. Tried a popular USB mic from Best Buy and was a little disappointed. It sounded a little heavy and muffled.
Summary: The MXL xlr to USB preamp mic interface is great. First don't worry about using a dynamic mic (no line voltage) they work the same and it won't hurt it. If you want to make a simple home recording just take a good mic with a xlr plug, connect a cable to it and connect the other end to the MXL...
Summary: I tried the Mic Mate with an Audio-Technica PRO-35 Pro Series Microphone Pro 35 along with the Audio-Technica AT8538 Power Module . The gain was too low and the pre-amp was noisy. The Mic Mate was useless. I think it is only suitable for use with a more sensitive mic.
Summary: This thing works as advertised. Windows XP SP3 loaded the drivers no problem. I have used this with a MXL V67B condenser mic, Sure SM57 and Sure Beta 57A dynamics. Works great. If you already have some mics that you like, and some cables, this is an easy solution.
Summary: This product is very bad. In my case it have low gain with condenser mics, and it is imposible to reduce the latency while recording even using asio drivers, asio4all, audacity or whatever. I dont recommend it. Maybe it is usefull but for other purpose different than music recording.
Summary: I bought this for use with my laptop, TrueRTA software and a Behringer EMC 8000 microphone, for frequency response measurement. It works well for that purpose. It's not provided with a USB cable however - you will need to purchase that separately.
Summary: I bought one of these the problem is the thing is 2 sided one side i plugged my mic into and the otherside plugs into the computer.. and requires a cord to go from it to the competer it didnt come with this chord so now im just sitting here confused and dont know what to do
