This battery powered condenser mic by MXL is of considerable value to any home recording enthusiasts using a desktop or laptop to record their music. The battery power eliminates the more expensive and complicated phantom power needed for most condenser mic. The only drawback to this is, of course, that the battery does have a limited life and will force you to buy a 9V every 12 or 14 hours the mic is in use. Also, when the battery begins to fade, so does the quality of the microphone; its volume and sensitivity are rolled back. When it comes to recording quality, the MARK is of excellent value for its price; I have used it to produce nearly professional quality recordings. I use the microphone in conjunction with an old Gateway laptop equipped with a Sound Blaster Audigy 2Z sound card and Adobe Audition 1.5, and the setup is not only great, but easy. As I mentioned before, this is a nearly professional quality microphone; there is a low level of hiss, but that is easily taken care of with noise reduction software (such as Adobe Audition). I would recommend that you get a windscreen or a pop filter, as the microphone is rather sensitive when it comes to vocals. It has worked well recording vocals, guitar, bass guitar, drums, brass instruments, and piano-- it seems to have no limits. A great value overall.

I saw other people talking about how good this mic was, so i decide to buy it. I ordered the mic on April 14, and 36 days have past, and i still have not received it. So i don't really know if it's good or not but i just want it to come so i can see how it works. Hope there isn't anyone else who is in the situation that i am in.

MXL V63MBP

By Ryan Malerk

from Missoula, MT

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

This mic is great and it comes with a nice hardcase with all the hook ups, cables and stands you will need to get recording from your desk. You have to put a 9V battery inside the mic, but the battery life is great and I have never had a problem with this feature.

This mic will be good for you if you:
are not 100% sure if the recording scene is for you and just want to test it out and see if you like it.
want to record some light vocals, voice over, or want a nice skype chat mic.
want to record some intruments. I will warn you, this mic does not pick up low frequencies very well. DO NOT plan on recording drums, electric guitar or bass with this mic.
do not have a budget for a better mic set up with a mixer, interface, protools, etc.

I used this mic for acoustic guitar, light vocals and piano on garage band. I recorded in a great sounding room and made a seperate track for each instument. The sound quality was good enough for me to listen to and share with a few of my close friends. But if you plan on doing anything more than that...you need to invest your time and money else where.

Overall, this is a great mic if you want an entry level way of recording some light music or voice over and you are on a serious budget. Just remember, you get what you pay for.

Great Mic for Home PC Recording

By Grandaddy

from Roanoke Rapids NC

Ask me a question

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

I play blugrass Gospel music and sing. this mic records my playing and singing remarkably clear. I do not use the desk top stand that came with this kit I also purchased a shock mount Item# 271293 in champagne color and it matches the color of the mic pretty close. a real inexpensive way to get some great recording

Great Voice-Over Mic

By Blingman

from Florida

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

I've had this for a few years and prefer it over my other, more expensive, mics for voice-over narration. Not as bright as some others, but a warmer low end enhances my "big announcer guy" thing. Battery is okay, but works better (more sensitive) with a real phantom power supply.

Total portability

By id-man

from Cape Cod

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

It's all about placement isn't it. From too far away (like 6 feet +) the signal is too low yeilding anemic tone with low dynamic range. Too close (like under 2 feet) and a marked proximity effect makes it muddy and woofy. But find the sweet spot (right about three feet in my setting) and it's got all the level and dynamic range of far more expensive large diaghpram condensers. Battery power makes it perfect for portable recorders like the Tascam DR-07.

Great mike

By Muirwood

from coastal island SE US

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

I got this mike to make work tapes of new songs. I wanted a hot omni-directional make so I could record acoustic guitar and vocal at the same time without having to mess with more than one track. (If I wanted to take the time I could record each track separately and I'm sure the mike would work well for that application.) It far surpasses my expectations. I'm running it into M-Audio FastTrack then my Mac PowerBook to record on Garage Band. As others have mentioned, the battery eliminates the need for phantom power. I did add a pop filter and I use it on a floor stand rather than the desk stand. It's great.

Very Nice Clear Sound

By mritim

from Kentucky

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording KitI just received this last week to record a voice-over for a marketing video I produced. The clarity of our voices was great. The quality of the microphone really added authority and professionalism to the video.The battery power is a nice feature- it means I didn't have to purchase a unit with phantom power. I plug directly into my PC's mic spot. I will be able to use it in the future to plug directly into the video camera.I'm thinking of buying another one.

Great mic for the price

By Alabama Axeman

from Alabama

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

Well built, solid, very nice sound, and the battery option really comes in handy. I do voice work and record my own music through Mixcraft. I worked at a top radio station as a continuity Director and had access to some of the best equipment...and this mic is fairly comparable to those high end mics, at least for my applications.If you're on a budget, this mic with a little eq will serve your needs.

excellent

By wag

from louisiana

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

This is he perfect solution for desktop freeware recording. I was actually expecting alot less when I ordered it. The 1/8" cable is a little fuzzy and not well put together, but if you don't move it there isn't any noise. Personally I think it's a little silly to make it a 1/8" cable with a 1/4" adapter rather than a 1/4" cable and a 1/8" adapter. Sounds a little more stable. But I guess they did it that way becuase most computers only have 1/8" inputs etc etc. If you need a non-phantom power mic, this is the ticket!
