        Comments about ART XConnect USB Microphone Cable:

        Quick and easy way to get pro audio into your PC (I'm using a Mac). It's plug & play, so no software to load, upgrade, etc. The only think I'd like to see is a Mic/Line switch somewhere, but for the price, does what I need.

        Best Uses

          Comments about ART XConnect USB Microphone Cable:

          GarageBand via the iPad Camera Connection Kit recognized this without a problem (I didn't need a powered USB hub). The light on the USB jack is handy but the steady blinking can get annoying quickly. A little bit of black tape will solve this.

          Comments about ART XConnect USB Microphone Cable:

          The absence of an attenuator on the USB plug is the only issue. You have to adjust your record volume through the soft-ware side. Under Adobe Audition, that's done with the Windows Recording Mixer -- but it may be different with other programs.

          Anyway -- this allows me to record nicely from my SM58 directly to my laptop without carrying around a mixer. Nice work.

            I use this for hooking up my mic straight to my computer and it works great. Im getting great quality sounds through it and the usb end has a light on it that flashes when its working, so you know tat if somethings wrong its not the cable.
