Start your podcast, voice-over work, or live stream with the Mackie Creator Bundle, a simple home recording and monitoring solution including a slew of Mackie gear—the EM-USB cardioid USB condenser microphone, a pair of CR3-X 3" multimedia monitors, the MC-100 headphones, a tripod desk stand, and connection cables.

Getting set up is easy: connect the microphone to your computer via USB Type-C, hook up the headphones to the mic's 3.5mm output, and use the supplied 3.5mm to stereo RCA cable to plug your computer's output into the monitors. With no drivers to install, the Creator Bundle offers user-friendly, plug-and-play functionality for recording speech and vocals in the comfort of your own home.

Mackie CR3-X Creative Reference Series 3" Multimedia Monitors (Pair)

The Mackie CR3-X is a pair of Creative Reference Series 3" Multimedia Monitors offering a compact solution for quality audio playback in home studios and gaming setups.

The pair consists of one passive speaker and one powered speaker that connect with an included speaker cable. Each monitor incorporates a custom-tuned rear port to smoothly extend the low end and a specially designed waveguide for clarity and proper dispersion of high frequencies.

With plenty of I/O provided, the CR3-X can accept a feed from your audio interface, computer soundcard, or mobile device while pumping out your mix to the drivers or your favourite headphones.

The CR3-X features a download for ProTools | First and The Musician's Collection plug-in package including 23 high-quality plug-ins with BBD Delay, Eleven Lite, the 304E EQ, and the 304C Compressor.

Mackie EM-USB EleMent Series USB Condenser Microphone

The Mackie EM-USB is an EleMent Series USB condenser microphone offering a simple solution for podcasting, live streaming, voice-overs, and vocal tracking. Like all EleMent Series mics, the EM-USB presents an attractive combination of ruggedness, quality sound, and affordability.

The EM-USB utilizes a cardioid polar pattern, which rejects sound behind the mic to yield recordings with less of the room ambience typically found in untreated spaces. A single USB Type-C connection to your host computer handles audio I/O and power for easy plug-and-play functionality, and the 3.5mm headphone output allows convenient headphone monitoring directly from the mic.

All controls—mic gain, headphone volume, and mic mute—are clearly accessible from the front of the mic. The EM-USB includes a tripod desk stand, a mic clip, and a USB Type-C so you can get started right away.

The EM-USB features a download for ProTools | First, Waveform software, and The Musician's Collection plug-in package including 23 high-quality plug-ins with BBD Delay, Eleven Lite, 304E EQ, and 304C Compressor. You also get Tracktion's Waveform OEM and the DAW Essentials Collection.
