USB ribbon microphone

The UR-1 microphone (Patent Pending) takes the classic, mellow sound of a ribbon microphone and integrates it with today's USB technology. This new mic uses modern electrical circuitry to match the input requirements of analog-to-digital converters and USB output with low-noise and high dynamic range. The UR-1 is housed in an all-metal body with a double-shielded grill. A volume control and headphone jack on the unit allow for real-time monitoring without any latency.
