The MXL USB Mic Mate is a compact low-noise analog preamp that converts 48V 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 Mic Mate has robust metal construction and is pocket sized, making it a perfect travel companion for a portable computer allowing broadcasters, audio engineers and recording enthusiasts to capture great sounds wherever they go with their own mics. 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. Just plug in your favorite microphone to the converter and the other end to the USB port on your portable or desktop computer to set your preferences, and enjoy studio-quality recordings.
