The MXL USB Mic Mate is a compact low-noise analog preamp that converts 48-volt phantom powered studio mics and analog line level signals to USB for quality recording on any PC or Mac. The Mic Mate uses the best of both analog and digital technology and features a fully balanced low noise, low distortion preamp, gain plus a 3-position analog gain control; a special circuit that converts the 5 volts from the USB port to a regulated 48 volts required by professional condenser microphones. The digital section features a 16 bit Delta Sigma A/D converter with a sampling of 44.1 and 48.1. The input side has a 3-pin XLR female and on the output a USB connector.

The MXL USB Mic Mate is easy to use and eliminates the need for any mixers, preamps, expensive studio gear or special software or drivers.

  • Cool little device

    As reviewed by Cale Miller on 7/8/2009

    I can only say good things about this thing. I am a student in the sound/audio field and needed a way to hookup a mic to my laptop. That being said, i don't exactly have $300 laying around to pick up an M-Box. So I heard about this little guy and decided to visit my local Guitar Center, and was a bit discouraged, they said (basically) that this was garbage and sounded terrible. But once again, I wasn't in the market for a expensive preamp and seeing as this was cheap I said oh well let's try it. The thing is AWESOME, I don't know what the Guitar Center people were talking about, I love this thing and works great with my SM57 mic. If you're a beginner, want something simple and is cheap this is a no brainer, buy this thing!

  • LOVED IT!!!!!

    As reviewed by Ruddy on 7/1/2009

    I had to decide to buy Pro tools or this. And Im a straight Beat Maker diving into the recording side. I've tested this with my AT4050/CM5 Condenser Mic against recordings from pro tool at my friends house and its astonishing just how there wasn't much of a difference. I'm glad I made this purchase as I didn't want to invest into a sound recording system that didn't require extensive knowledge. I just plug and played this sucker and worked like a charm. An incredible buy for those who just need to lay out voices or instruments without the complexity behind big names. LOVED IT!
