One look at the MXL UR-1 USB ribbon mic and you just know it screams classic. This exclusive microphone is the first-ever USB ribbon microphone on the market.

When most people record audio on their computers, they either use analog microphones that have to be used with an interface or they use USB microphones that can be plugged directly into the computer. The problem with USB microphones is that they don't possess great recording quality. The MXL UR-1 aims to change that for USB microphones.

Ribbon microphones are great for voice capturing and singing vocals at a professional level, so it's great for them to finally have a simple USB plug-in. The MXL UR-1 also exempts great beauty, as its gold exterior makes it something you want to show off.
