What is the advantage of having a condenser microphone?
Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones for recording audio. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all of the audio of an instrument or voice. Using phantom power, condenser microphones usually have a louder output but can be more sensitive to loud sounds.

How does the dynamic microphone pick sound up?
This microphone has a cardioid pattern, which means it is sensitive to sounds picked up at the front of the unit and least sensitive to sounds from the back. The pickup is based in one direction, which makes it effective for isolating unwanted sound. It also offers a high resistance to feedback from speakers. This makes it a perfect microphone for using in both a studio environment and podcasts.

What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone has a range of recording options to allow you to record high quality sound for a variety of purposes such as podcasts, 2-way interviews, meetings, performances, voiceovers and more. The microphone connects directly into your mixer and is simple to set up, allowing you to start recording in minutes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Great.... but not for me I purchased this item along with the "ProSound" stand and Alto ZMX 52 mixer. With me being new to the music scene I don't have a clue when it comes to the best audio equipment to buy, but I gave this a try and it works well, but is too sensative with my voice and just doesn't suit my music type. However I'd definitely recommend it for people who sing etc.. As this is a very decent mic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Impressed! Picked this up recently and I am very impressed with this mic for the money. Very solid build quality, comes with a nice cable and shock mount. Excellent sensitivity. My only issue is the shock mount can be a bit noisy if you bump your mic stand! Using with a Scarlett 2i2 interface and I couldn't be happier!

Why does your description of this mic say "The microphone connects directly into your USB and is simple to set up, allowing you to start recording in minutes.", when it clearly is _Not_ a USB mic as it needs 48V phantom power?

Asked by: GordonS
I'm pleased to see that the description is now correct. When I originally commented, your description clearly said that it was a USB microphone and did not mention phantom power. I could see is wasn't a USB microphone and identified that it was phantom-powered condenser microphone before I bought them, but clearly a number of other people believed the description. FWIW, electret condenser microphones use a battery not phantom power.

Asked by: Singing Group
Providing you have the correct P.A and speaker set up then yes this would be possible.

Hi, I've connected the prosound mic to my interface Numark to record then with Ableton live, but it seems to not work. There is any helpful step that i should do?? thank you

Asked by: dom33
Have you tried to apply phantom power to it? It won't work without phantom power and if you don't have a mixer or interface with a 48v phantom power output then your 'condencer' microphone won't work. I suggest you look at the I/O in Ableton Live "x" and make sure you're using your mixer/interface drivers to ensure the Daw/Program is communicating with your interface/mixer. So things to consider: •Gain - input volume •phantom power / 48v •I/O in audio software •install Hardware drivers (differs between operating systems such as Mac or Pc (research) •Read the Manuel of this microphone, interface/mixer, pc or Audio software. Don't worry if you have sorted this problem out already, I only just seen this and thought "just incase" Thanks Recommend online material (YouTube and more...)
