A professional quality digital recording or podcasting condenser microphone. It's identical to the acclaimed BEHRINGER C-1 mic with one awesome difference: it has a built-in USB interface so you can be ready to record faster than ever, and with minimal preparation and equipment. Just plug it into your computer and start recording!
The ideal choice for capturing vocals and acoustic instruments. Unlike a dynamic microphone, a condenser microphone collects sound from throughout an environment such as a room, rather than only picking up what's happening directly in front of it - so you can capture much more detail with wider, flatter frequency response.
But the C-1U has a built-in USB interface that derives the needed power directly from you computer's USB input and requires no special drivers. Just plug in and start recording your masterpiece!You don't need to download any additional drivers to begin using the C-1U right out of the box. It even works with Vista!
You also get an extensive software package with Audacity for recording, Kristal Audio Engine for editing and multitracking, Podifier uploading software and PodNova downloading software. It works like this: Connect the mic to your PC or Mac. Load Audacity and save your recording onto your hard drive. Now load the included Kristal software and you can edit your recording or add tracks. Now you're ready to upload your work onto the Web via Podifier.
The cardioid pickup pattern provides unparalleled sound source separation and feedback rejection. The C-1U's ultra low-noise transformerless FET input circuitry can handle extreme dynamics, from 40 Hz to 20 kHz, and has a maximum sound pressure level of 136 dB. That means that even if the special guest on your next podcast happens to be a revved-up jet engine, this workhorse mic will not distort!
