I do a LOT of voice work, because I run my own video production business. I edit on Final Cut Pro, but I don't have a sound studio. I have a studio quality on-camera mic that I bought for about $500. I used to record my voice-overs straight into my Sony PD-150 with this $500 mic, and then I'd have to capture them into the computer. I just found this thing online last week and ordered it. The sound quality comes through excellent - as good as recording onto my PD-150, if not better. The unit is compact and extremely easy to set up and use. Just plug the mic into one end, a USB cable into the other. I was able to record into both FCP and Soundtrack. The one drawback is there's no volume knob on the unit - just a "high, medium, low" volume switch, and FCP and Soundtrack don't give you the option to adjust the level until after you're finished recording. So, you're stuck with limited record settings. Having said that, the signal from my voice came through loud and clear - and if I need to, I can just adjust the sound level after it's recorded. I will probably use this thing exclusively to do voice overs from now on. No more capturing after I do voice work. Much more convenient.

A few months later - the thing seems to have some kind of conflict with Final Cut Pro, where it records static some of the time. When this happens, I have to reboot FCP. It's kind of annoying.

Okay, I fixed that problem. In FCP, every time you press option-zero to bring up the voiceover record feature, it changes something. So the first time you do it, everything's fine. But then if the window gets hidden and you hit option-zero again to bring that window to the front - WITHOUT closing the window first - it causes this garbled static problem.

I bought this for use with my laptop, TrueRTA software and a Behringer EMC 8000 microphone, for frequency response measurement. It works well for that purpose. It's not provided with a USB cable however - you will need to purchase that separately.

The MXL Mic Mate does one thing and one thing only -- converts your XLR mic to a USB. For some people that may be all you're looking for and that's fine because that's what it's supposed used for. However if you want the BEST possible quality out of your mic then I'll have to advise you NOT to get this product. It does what it's supposed to do but not perfectly. The sound quality is that of a standard USB mic with a rather loud hum in the background, and yes the hum is very noticeable. I have very basic knowledge of audio editing and I could not find a way to remove the hum in post production, I've tried DeNoisers, Gate, Hard Limiters, Compression, EQ the whole 9 yards and still could not get rid of that hum. If it weren't there then this product would be great however it is there so unfortunately I would recommend getting an audio mixer or audio interface.

I got this mic mate and mxl 770 microphone, at first use I thought there is something wrong with the mic mate, but i realized that this is its quality. With the same 60 dollars, it is better to get a mixer like behringer 802 and connect its output to your normal pc sound card and you will get better results. It is good for its size, but sure it is not compared with complete mixers even at the same price.

The Recording I got using this with my Microphone was crisp, clear, Noise-Free, & High Fidelity. I had do a recording in my studio for my news program director, and this sure did the trick. It's just a XLR-USB Adapter Interface. You can use this from any Condenser Microphone and plug in the MXL Mic Mate to your Computer or Laptop. This is also relatively affordable.
This device is great in on the field also, if you dont want to carry heavy mixing equipment, with you, it does the job. My friend got one also for Calibrating his Car Stereo System with a calibration microphone. The USB cable you can get at any store.
MXL makes the best Professional Audio. I've always used the MXL Microphone line in my Recording studio, the Mogami Cable line, and their interfaces, adapters.

This little device was just what I was looking for. Wanting to upgrade my sound quality, I started looking and looking for mics and whatever it took to get some decent sound. Tried a popular USB mic from Best Buy and was a little disappointed. It sounded a little heavy and muffled. Took it back and continued my search, trying to balance cost and quality. I have hit the jackpot with this little USB mic mate. It provides phantom power for my Behringer C-1 Studio condenser microphone and uses USB to connect to my iMac computer. I was a little bit concerned with the 16 bit sample rate, but this combination sounds awesome. It is a simple device with hi- med-low output levels which works fine for me. Cost was definitely a concern for me and I was able to save enough with this combination to snag a RODE PSA 1 swivel mount boom arm. Now I look and sound like a pro if I do say so myself. The boom arm is the way to go if you are going to use another mic with your computer. Anyway, don't be fooled by the low price of this preamp. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.
