Designed specifically for recording directly to a desktop or laptop with popular programs like Cubase, digital performer, Logic, GarageBand, Skype, and Reaper, the MXL USB- 77 is a professional, CD-level quality, cardioid condenser studio microphone with the look and feel of a 1940's era ribbon. "The USB-77 serves up all the conveniences of USB technology but adds style that has been missing from USB mics," explains Jim Mona, MXL's National Sales Manager. "It's not just for looks, either--this mic outperforms typical USB mics on all types of recordings."
Features of the MXL USB-77 that go above and beyond ordinary USB mics include a gold-sputtered diaphragm and large 32 mm capsule for studio-level quality sound. An analog gain control dial can be used to manipulate the sound level of your recording to maximize the quality of your performance, and the USB-77 includes a 1/8-inch stereo headphone with high quality amplifier so users can monitor their recordings without latency issues.
The MXL USB-77 interfaces with Windows and Macintosh computers without the need for any special drivers. As a USB device, it carries the added benefit of not requiring an external microphone preamp, as is the case with most cardioid condenser microphones. The MXL USB-77 includes a carrying case, desktop microphone stand and mounting ring, USB cable, and cleaning cloth.
