Product Details

What is the SM57 + X2u best suited to?

The SM57 is a popular instrument microphone and commonly used for miking guitar and bass amps, drums and saxophones. Combined with the X2u, it can be easily connected directly to a computer without the need for any additional hardware. This would make it ideal for home recording studios.

Will it work with my computer?

The X2u is compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2000, 7, 8, 10 and Mac OS X (10.1 or later). It features a built in headphone jack so that you can monitor the sound without the need for an additional sound card. It also includes an integrated pre-amp with mic gain control which allows you to control the signal strength.

And what about latency?

Latency can be described as the time taken between initiating a request in the computer and receiving the answer. You can expect zero latency monitoring with the X2U. Zero-latency monitoring means real-time playback and multi-tracking without delay and 16-bit/48 kHz sample rate provides better-than-CD-quality audio.

With Monitor Mix Control (which is featured on the X2U) you can blend the mic signal and audio playback as you desire.

What if I need Phantom Power to use the X2U with my other microphones in the future?

The X2U is equipped with Phantom Power so you can also use your favourite condensers together with the X2U. Any XLR mic can be plugged directly into your computer using the X2U.
