SHURE - X2U - AUDIO INTERFACE MICRO XLR-USB

Connect any XLR microphone to a computer for digital recording with headphone monitoring

WHAT IS THE X2U BEST SUITED TO?

The X2u, combined with any wired microphone can be easily connected directly to a computer without the need for any additional hardware. This would make it ideal for home recording studios.

WILL IT WORK WITH MY COMPUTER?

The X2u is compatible with Windows 7, 8 & 10 (32 & 64 bit), Vista (32 & 64 bit), XP, 2000 and Max OS X (10.1 or later). It features a built in headphone jack so that you can monitor the sound without the need for an additional sound card. It also includes an integrated pre-amp with mic gain control which allows you to control the signal strength.

CAN I USE A CONDENSER MICROPHONE WITH THE X2U?

The X2U does have phantom power so yes you can connect your condenser microphone straight into the computer

DO I NEED SOFTWARE TO MAKE THE X2U WORK?

No - it is a plug and play solution

AND WHAT ABOUT LATENCY?

Latency can be described as the time taken between initiating a request in the computer and receiving the answer. You can expect zero latency monitoring with the X2U. Zero-latency monitoring means real-time playback and multi-tracking without delay and 16-bit/48 kHz sample rate provides better-than-CD-quality audio.

WHAT IS MONITOR MIX CONTROL?

With Monitor Mix Control (which is featured on the X2U) you can blend the mic signal and audio playback as you desire.
