Our take on the Shure X2u

by Ralph Graves

Use your favorite microphone to record directly to your computer. The Shure X2u XLR-to-USB adapter makes it easy. The adapter comes with a 9.8-foot USB cable, so you can position your microphone on a stand for recording. The adapter's headphone jack lets you monitor as you record, and a mix control lets you balance the input signal with recorded sound to hear your take with zero latency.
