Marantz MPM-1000U - USB Condenser Microphone

Record audio for your podcast straight to your computer with the Marantz Professional MPM-1000U, a USB microphone geared toward content creators. Bypassing the need for any audio interface, preamp, or mixer, the MPM-1000U lets you record yourself right out of the box, capturing broadcast-quality audio in the process. The mic ships with a mic clip and a USB cable to get you up and running right away.

Get started right away, as this mic works directly with your computer. No separate interface or preamp is required. The microphone makes use of a directional cardioid polar pattern to minimize off-axis sound. This polar pattern naturally, yet effectively tamps down room tone and focuses the audio capture on what's directly in front of the mic, so everyone can clearly hear your voice. A cardioid polar pattern is one of the best natural defenses against unwanted room noise. The mic records audio at sample rates and resolutions up to 16-bit / 48 kHz, giving you the broadcast standard for media playback. This mic will capture audio at the same sample rate and resolution that all your viewers or listeners would likely hear it.

With an mic clip and USB cable, you can get up and running right away.
