MXL TEMPO USB MICROPHONE
Gear Review By: ~ Downshifter (Editor of Full Metal Rock)
Wow, Finally a Microphone that meets my every need: as a journalist, music geek, and every other possible way I could ever imagine. It even fits my decor. The most important factor in this Microphone is the quality of the sound I can achieve with it.
The Tempo is also well designed, and built heavy duty tough. I was very impressed with the near military grade construction and heavy duty design.
In the past I have done Phone interviews with Volbeat, Y&T, Kittie, Black Label Society, Etc In those interviews I used my PC internal Mic with a speaker phone and the results were ok at best, although during my trial period of the MXL tempo I did not have any scheduled interviews, I did do a mock interview in the same fashion with a FMR staff member and using the MXL tempo the results were awesome in the sound quality.
I simply plugged it in to my laptop, and it was ready to go via usb, no disks, no software, no BS, and it even has a built in headphone jack.
This Microphone is perfect for Laying down vocals into a PC or Mac, Podcasts, Video Chats, Audio Interviews, Dictation, etc.
MXL Tempo is bad ass and Full Metal Rock Gives this Microphone 2 Thumbs Up!
