BidirectionalMXL UR-1

Bidirectional Ribbon Microphone

The UR-1 is the world’s first USB ribbon microphone.

The mic combines the ribbon motor from MXL’s other ribbon mics with a 16-bit ADC, onboard amplifier circuit, and digital output. We believe the ribbon material is 1.8 micron aluminum.

Zero-latency monitoring is provided via an onboard headphone jack.

The mic ships with a padded aluminum flight case, a USB cable, and a desktop stand.

It will ship in June, 2011.

This profile will be updated as additional specifications are provided by the manufacturer.
