MXL tell us that their new USB-77 is the
industry's first classic-style USB microphone. Here's what they have to say about it...
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
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.
