Each 10' XLR cable is a quiet and durable studio-quality mic cable well suited for critical recording and broadcast situations.
Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 Audio Interface for Online Broadcasting
Designed for gamecasters—i.e. those who broadcast their gaming prowess over the web—as well as podcasters wishing to expand their horizons, the Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42 is a high-speed USB 2.0 interface. It's capable of capturing 24-bit/96 kHz audio, compatible with Mac and Windows computers, works with most DAW software, and can even interface with iOS devices using an adapter (available separately). With its intuitive layout and various inputs for recording the human voice, it can give you the tools to introduce many elements into the milieu of your podcast, such as the ability to record guitar directly, as well as the support for two microphones at once—should you have guests coming over to chat.
For inputs, the US-42 sports two High-Definition Discrete-Architecture preamps, two combination XLR/TRS connections, a 3.5mm jack suitable for headset mics, and an auxiliary 3.5mm stereo input most agreeable for introducing the signal of consumer-grade audio equipment. In addition to the stereo RCA outputs for connecting to monitors, the unit offers two headphone outputs-one 1/4", one 3.5mm-as well as 48V phantom power for condenser microphones and support for 4-pole headphone/mic configurations.
The US-42 features an efficient hardware layout that clearly displays its various features. Glancing at the tabletop interface, you'll see the sizable level meter in the middle for monitoring incoming signal. It sits between two combination XLR / 1/4" TRS jacks for accepting your microphone signals. Below this row of features, a reverb-blend knob sits prominently between two input-selector switches.
The lower portion of the interface clearly shows two output knobs—one for monitors, one for your various headphones—three pads for triggering on-board sound effects, and an effect on/off pad. Thus, while creating your broadcast, you'll have the tools you need to keep the show running at your fingertips.
This device comes with software for better utilizing the hardware component of the US-42. The software features two panels, giving you an Easy view into the system and an Expert peak behind the curtain, so to speak.
The Easy panel breaks down your options for manipulating signal into three overarching categories: Sound (presets for your particular sonic setup), Effect (presets for manipulating your vocals upon pressing the effect on/off pad), and Reverb (types of ambiance with which you can effect your vocal). Beneath these knobs, you can assign the sounds of the trigger pads, and set their volume as well.
The Expert panel, on the other hand, gives you comprehensive controls of the US-42's compressor, equalizer, and reverb. In this panel, you also have control over buffer size, as well as the ability to manipulate the trigger pad's settings further; for example, you can set the rate of fade-in and fade-out for the sample being triggered.

2 x Senal SC-550X Professional Cardioid Condenser Microphone
Designed to provide both professional and project studios a workhorse microphone that can be used in a wide variety of applications, the SC-550X Professional Cardioid Condenser Microphone from Senal boasts a wide, linear frequency response coupled with a precise transient response and high signal-to-noise ratio for accurate sound capture. It has a high SPL handling of 140 dB, and is at home not only in front of vocalists, but for tracking acoustic and electric guitars, brass, strings, pianos, and overhead drums.
Thanks to its cardioid polar pattern, the SC-550X has a generous pickup range while minimizing off-axis noise. A selectable -10 dB pad allows you to use it in front of particularly loud sources without distorting, while the selectable high-pass filter provides an on-board low-frequency roll off. A shockmount, pop filter, and case are all included.
The Senal SC-550X is a studio condenser microphone with a warm, full-bodied sound, accurate transient response, and high signal-to-noise ratio
Cardioid Polar Pattern
The SC-550X's cardioid polar pattern provides excellent off-axis rejection and enables the microphone to capture detailed sound from directly in front of the capsule
The high-pass filter helps prevent the SC-550X from picking up low-frequency noises like the rumble from an air conditioner, which can interfere with your recording
The attenuation pad adds further adaptability to the SC-550X, lowering the output by 10 dB to prevent distortion when recording loud sounds like cymbals and electric guitar cabinets
The microphone's rugged all-metal construction maintains an overall high standard of durability. With the included hard-shell case to store the microphone and all the included accessories, it's easy to take the SC-550X with you on the road
Flat Frequency Response
With its flat frequency response, the SC-550X delivers accurate, detailed sound reproduction designed for use in all recording environments. Capable of capturing vocals in the studio, the SC-550X also offers versatility for recording guitars, brass, strings, and piano, as well as overhead drum miking. It can also be used for nonmusical applications like podcasting, voiceovers, and broadcast use
140 dB Maximum SPL
The SC-550X's 140 dB maximum SPL optimizes the microphone to accurately capture loud signals without distorting
The included shock mount isolates the SC-550X to prevent it from picking up unwanted noise caused by vibrations. The universal 5/8" threaded socket is compatible with most microphone stands, and the locking knob enables vertical adjustment for customized placement
The included pop filter is indispensable for recording vocals. The metal mesh screen reduces noise from aspirated plosives like p and b sounds and keeps corrosive moisture away from the capsule. Just mount the pop filter onto the rim of the shock mount and adjust it to suit your vocalist
2 x Senal SMH-1000 Professional Field and Studio Monitor Headphones
The SMH-1000 Professional Field and Studio Monitor Headphones from Senal feature a classic closed-back, over-the-ear, collapsible design. With features like interchangeable cables, a refined frequency response, wire guides, superior comfort, and durable materials, the SMH-1000 is ideal for studio and field applications.
Equipped with 40mm neodymium drivers at 58 ohm impedance, the SMH-1000 headphones are designed to be loud enough when attached to low powered devices such as mobile phones and mp3 players, yet robust enough to handle studio headphone amps without distortion.
