What is the difference between MXL AC-404 and the MXL AC-404Z?
Asked by: Wesley
The mics themselves are identical. The Z is meant to be part of a Zoom conferencing system. The Z ships with mounting tape, a right angle USB cable and also sports a blue LED to match the Zoom color. The non Z does not sport an LED light. If you have a Zoom system, consider the Z version, otherwise the non Z is fine.

question

Can I use the headphone output to input to a camera?
Asked by: Thomas A.
You can take audio out from the headphone output, but it is line level. Also, this mic must be connected to a computer for power and to control the volume level to the headphone out.

question

Can I power the mic thru the USB port with a portable battery pack?
Asked by: Thomas A.
This mic is designed to send audio via USB connection, as well as power back to the mic. Theoretically, since it is bus powered, you could use an external battery to power the mic through the USB, but you would not have control over the headphone audio line level output. This is all done on the computer.

I am interested in microphones like this one, but I am interested in chaining up to 4 of them together. Can you recommend an alternative product?
Asked by: J
I suggest looking into software to submix. We use a platform called voicemeeter. The other option would be using a USB audio interface with 4 preamps and connect the MXL FR401M. The 401M is essentially a XLR version of the 404. From there you can connect that interface to whatever platform you are using.
