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. But This is my review of the MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit.

MXL V63MBP

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.

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 microphone for home use... get a shockmount

By Phil-42_L3

from California

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

I enjoy this mic. It's great because it doesn't require phantom power like most mics of this caliber. But the stand that it comes with is pretty lame, that's the one "downfall". I'd suggest getting a shockmount.

Adapted to a new purpose...

By Neil Russell

from Statesboro, GA

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

...and it works like a champ. Rather than plug it into my computer, I am running it right into my video camera.I've been searching for a clear sounding microphone to take on the road with my video equipment and when I saw that this one not only didn't require phantom power, but also came with a 1/8" plug I jumped on it.And I haven't been disappointed a bit.I can set it up within 10 feet of my actors and it comes in loud and clear.The only squawk I have is that the connection at the 1/8" plug can be a little noisy, but I'll solder up my own plug soon, and once in a while I detect a little hum if I don't ground the mic. I suspect that has more to do with the small plug, I haven't had a chance to operate it with just the balanced connection. Since I mount the mic on a stand the lack of a shock mount hasn't been an issue but I'll invest in one later on.Excellent sound and quality for the price!

Great Mic For the Price

By mvm0491

from Taylorville, Illinois

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

I bought this mic a few weeks ago on sale, and I have mostly pros and very few cons. Firstly, it is perfect for those with a budget and want to record on freeware at home. That is what I do, and it fits the bill. Portability is also a plus. The case is useful and durable. It seems as though there is a bit of unwanted static for at least the first few seconds and maybe longer, but like i said, for the price, it is expected. Also, I will note that sometimes if its not put together to exact preciseness, record errors can occur, such as only record on one side or likewise, but that is halfway user error. Overall, it is a good deal, but if money is no objective, always shoot for the moon, and this is not the moon for you...

A great Beginners choice

By TellMyTele

from Camp Hill, PA

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

Having no recording experience prior to owning this package, I had no idea what I was going to buy. I knew I would need something that uses a 1/8" (3.35 mm as they classified it as) jack. The technician pointed this out to me stating that if I were to use a normal mic into a an 1/8" adaptor I would lose all "gain structure." I listened to him and bought it on the spot. After tinkering with it for an hour and having no luck with trying to get it to work I ran back to my guitar shop and asked them to test it. They to were perplexed finally a dead battery (the one that came in the package) was stated as the culprit. Also in my package the 1/4" jack had a faulty connection. After all was said and done it turns out to be a good mic for the money, very clear and not totally transparent but in a good way. The only pattern available is cardiod, but the mic is very sensitive in what direction it is turned lending it to many different tones.

Good gear!

By TheArsonist

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

I recently purchased this MXL mic cause I needed something cheap to record with. This is my first mic as well and I wanted something that could plug straight into my soundcard. It picks up sound well but I seem to get some fuzzy playback in the first few seconds of activity. It might be my soundcard or something I don't know. Also it doesn't mic amps as well as I'd like it to. I know this kind of mic is probably better for acoustics anyway which is does decent. But overall it's better than the computer mic I was using to record with. So I can't complain. The stand it comes with is fine and the mic itself seems pretty stable. I would say by this if it's your first mic and you want to start doing some decent sounding stuff.

Great first condenser!

By somethingvague

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

I found this beauty of a microphone while on a strict budget. I did not want to mess around with phantom power and spend a fortune on mixer to power it. This fit the bill perfectly! I do all my recording on my PC, so it was great to get all the adapter cords along with it. It was so simple to set up once I got it. All of this, and it sounds amazing too! I definitely recommend this to anyone who is in the market for a condenser.

Excellent Podcast Microphone

By John Fisher

from Undisclosed

Comments about MXL V63MBP Computer Desktop Recording Kit:

When I decided to give podcasting a whirl, I searched for a microphone and setup that would allow me to go mobile with a minimum amount of equipment. Yes, I need to worry about the battery, but 9V batteries are much easier to carry than a mixer that provides phantom power. The sound quality is great for podcasting - it provides a rich sound. I use Sound Blaster's Audigy 2 NX to isolate the sound system from the computer and allow me to use it with a laptop. I also purchased a used MiniDisc recorder and player. This allows me to record with just the mic and MD unit. For my home workstation I purchased a microphone arm and shockmount. The recording software I use is Audacity. To create and blend the podcast out of various pieces, I use Propoganda. So, with a fairly minimal investment, I can create a good podcast. This is a great tool for a podcaster.
