If you’re a budding podcaster or content creator looking for a quality sound and a convenient form factor, consider the Marantz Professional Pod Pack 1, which gives you a USB microphone, boom arm, and USB cable at a reasonable price point. Bypassing the need for any audio interface, preamp, or mixer, the mic can record audio straight to computers out of the box.
The included, fully adjustable boom arm provides a secure way of mounting the mic to your desk as well as a consummate, professional appearance to your home podcasting studio. Also supplied are a mic clip and a USB cable.
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.
Essential Hardware for the Podcasting Studio
The Pod Pack 1 foregoes the usual desktop stand with a sturdy, desk-clamped boom arm for professional podcasting. The boom arm attaches to your desk, securely holding your mic, all while looking the part. A mic clip and a USB cable are also included.
