It features selectable Cardioid and Omnidirectional polar patterns, making it ideal for numerous recording applications. Whether you are using it for spoken word like Podcasts, Live Streaming, Voice-Overs, and Virtual Meetings, or Vocal and Musical Instrument performance, it delivers a dynamic, professional sound with the impact you need to stand out. The SmartMic MTV500 also features an adjustable, multi-angle tabletop stand, a 3.5mm headphone output and eye-catching vintage styling.
Multi-Pattern Flexibility for Versatile Recording Options
The SmartMic MTV500 features both Cardioid and Omnidirectional polar patterns. Cardioid focuses on directly in front of the microphone, rejecting off-axis noise and reflections from the sides and rear of the mic. Perfect for great sounding Podcasts, Live Streams, Voice-Overs, Virtual Meetings, Vocal Performances, and Instrument recording with one person, even in rooms with less than perfect acoustics. Omnidirectional picks up sound from all around the microphone and is ideal for recording multiple subjects for Multi-Person Discussions, Podcasts, and Meetings, or Multi-Performer, Multi-Instrument and Room Recording.
Unique Vintage and Professional Look
Designed for those who want to stand out and still look professional, the SmartMic MTV500 features a sleek vintage style that looks great on camera. It features an integrated internal pop filter that protects against pops and plosives, without the need for a bulky external pop filter. It also features an adjustable tabletop stand that is designed to absorb bumps or impacts and allows you to quickly position the microphone’s angle for optimum sound pick-up.
Dial in Perfect Levels, Change Polar Pattern and Monitor with Ease
The SmartMic MTV500 makes dialing in perfect sound and levels simple with its tactile input level control, letting you easily adjust the input level anytime, or mute the mic for privacy. Switching the pick-up pattern to cardioid or omnidirectional is just as simple. It also features a 3.5mm headphone monitor output with volume control allowing you to monitor the application, or with zero-latency direct monitoring to ensure you sound great every time.
