OUR PART # SM57X2U
The Shure SM57-X2u includes the SM57LC* instrument microphone with the X2u XLR-USB signal adapter for digital recording applications - including bass amps, guitar amps, acoustic string instruments, brass/woodwinds and drums/percussion.
The Shure SM57 unidirectional dynamic microphone is exceptional for musical instrument pickup or for vocals. With its bright, clean sound and carefully contoured presence rise, the SM57 is ideal for live sound reinforcement and recording. It has an extremely effective cardioid pickup pattern which isolates the main sound source while minimizing background noise. It is also the standard microphone used on the podium of the U.S. President for over 30 years. Its outstanding performance, legendary reliability, and diversity of application make this "workhorse" the choice of performers, producers, and sound engineers the world over.
The X2u has an ultra-slim body and is designed for on-the-go recording needs. Perfect for multi-track recording, it features built-in headphone monitoring with zero latency, 20Hz - 20kHz frequency response, peak signal LED indicator, and monitor mix control for blending microphone and playback audio - just plug and play for 16-bit (up to 48kHz sample rate) high quality sound. Integrated pre-amp with mic gain control allows control of input signal strength. Compatible with Windows Vista Business, XP Pro/Home SP1 or later, 2000 Pro, and Mac OSX 10.1 or later, requires 64MB RAM or better. It provides +48V phantom power and includes 3m (9.8') USB cable and padded zipper carrying pouch.
