Product overview

• Record from a microphone to PC with ease• 16-bit 44kHz mono recording• 5 metre lead - USB on one end, XLR plug on the other• Suitable for other audio devices that accept XLR plug• 'Plug 'n' Play' connection• Powered by USB – no power supply required• Power on LED indicator light• PC and MAC compatible

The Microphone to USB Lead makes it easy to connect most XLR microphones or other XLR audio sources to your PC. The lead records in studio-quality 16-bit at 44.1 kHz using the internal analogue-to-digital conversion process. The Microphone to USB Lead is 'Plug 'n' Play' (no drivers required) and is compatible with PC and MAC. Maplin recommends use with good quality sound recording software, for instance Audacity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty decent quality cable. Works perfectly with windows 8. Also as a bonus works perfectly with the iPad using camera USB adaptor. Overall if you're using at home for demo or podcasting good product and for remote recording lectures or the like with a dynamic mic perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well recording directly into Audacity. Be aware that it is fine for dynamic microphones but does not supply any phantom power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works a treat! You'd better tell people it works straight away with Mac as well! - as there was no mention of this on the packaging - no drivers required - just plug and play: Mac Mini late 2012 running OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 Core i7.

Asked by: amber
