Asked by: Frank
This condenser goose neck mic can be used with a computer with the addition of an audio interface, such as the Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2x2 USB Audio Interface (3rd Generation), BH #FOSCARSOLO3G. The audio interface can provide the necessary 48 volt phantom power that the mic requires, as well as convert the analog signal into a digital signal, which then conects via the included USB cable to your computer.

question

we are using shure MX418 microphones {4 mics} and when they work they start to do noise instead of amplify the voice. Is there some Batreys in them that need to be changed?
Asked by: seb c.
They have no batteries, my guess is that the connector is loose or the problem is elsewhere. This mic should give you at least 10 years of service. Usually this frequency response changes for the worse over time.

question

This has the push-to-talk function. Does it have a button to leave the mic on continuously without having to use the push feature?
