The Mackie EM-CHROMIUM is a studio-grade desktop mic plus audio interface with music production in mind. It combines a premium Onyx-equipped large-diaphragm condenser microphone with a 1/4" input and hands-on mixer. This makes the EM-CHROMIUM an all-in one solution for singer-songwriters who want to lay down professional demos at home and online guitar instructors who need their instrument to come across loud and clear over streaming platforms. It's a true single-cable production solution for home recording and streaming. Four switchable polar patterns equip the Mackie EM-CHROMIUM microphone for hyper-realistic ensemble recording and natural-sounding speech and vocal pickup. Plug in an instrument, and you've got a clean front end for interfacing with the latest software amp and stomp emulators. You can also connect a phone or tablet with an 1/8" output for sharing playback material or jamming along to backing tracks. Class Compliant USB-C connectivity makes the EM-CHROMIUM a plug-and-play operation without installing any drivers. Furthermore, you get dedicated mic level and headphone output controls right on the mic. Looking to streamline your home or production studio?
