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.
