Connects to Computers

Get started right away, as this mic works directly with your computer. No separate interface or preamp is required.

Cardioid Polar Pattern for the Untreated Room

The microphone makes use of a directional cardioid polar pattern to minimize off-axis sound. This polar pattern naturally, yet effectively tamps down room tone and focuses the audio capture on what's directly in front of the mic, so everyone can clearly hear your voice. A cardioid polar pattern is one of the best natural defenses against unwanted room noise.

Broadcast-Quality Audio Capture

The mic records audio at sample rates and resolutions up to 16-bit / 48 kHz, giving you the broadcast standard for media playback. This mic will capture audio at the same sample rate and resolution that all your viewers or listeners would likely hear it.

Handy Hardware Included

With a tabletop mic stand, a mic mount, and a USB cable, you can get up and running right away.

Is this compatible with a MacBook ?

Yes it is. As a side note also the shock mount that is included doesn't fit the mic that you order. It's weird I know.
