I've been getting interested in these lately. Anybody have experience with them ? ( Read what they have to say first, on the site links provided, before you summarily dismiss them, as there have been some changes recently in this technology from what was being offered when they first came out. )
I'm wondering how close one has to be to the MXL mike for it to work, for one thing. ( I need more info about this latency/device driver question also. ) The same company offers a new "shotgun mike" product, too; however I don't know if it is a USB/digital model or not.
Some different types of microphones that I discovered in my explorations lately.
( 1. ) MXL 009 - The only one of these in my OP that I can actually hope to afford any time soon.MXL USB Mics
With the above product they are supplying everything that you need for a certain level of sophistication. ( See the Neumanns for more sophisticated options. ) This same MXL company also makes a little rod that can convert the input of a regular microphone into something suitable for a USB connection.
