This review is from: 3M Microphone USB MIC Link Cable USB Male to XLR Female
Pros: Works as described, plug and play!
Other Thoughts: I wrote the previous review when the product first arrived in the mail. I've since ordered several more of the cables with the intention of testing my theory on multiple inputs running through a USB hub for the purpose of recording an acoustic drumset. I am simultaneously recording 4 microphone tracks plugged into the USB hub and it works flawlessly. The sound quality is excellent and like all microphone tracks, is mostly based on mixing and mic placement. But as for what the cables send to the machine, sounds perfect to me. I am going to order several more cables so that I can properly mic my large drumset. I've only tried Shure SM-57s and the Shure 4 piece drum miking system, but they have all worked great. I'm not sure if a condenser mic would work, as they often require specific power, but for my application, these mic cables have been perfect. I can plug in all my mics for less than $100, which is a solid $200-300 less than the required mixing board scenario. I use GarageBand with a 2012 MacMini (Snow Lion), running the mics through a USB 2.0 hub (which is also connected to a printer and external harddrive). I've used this process to lay down drum tracks for recorded music. I don't see why you couldn't record an entire band using these cables, just as long as you've got the USB ports to spare. A word to the wise with recording; I don't know if its a deal with the cables or more likely a the physics of sound waves, but you MUST use software to set all tracks to the same time, known as phase adjustments. An example: set up 3 mic tracks and hit a snare drum. The sound will show up at slightly different times on each track, so you must manually drag the tracks to overlap according to that sound. This process is done graphically and takes about 5 seconds per track in GarageBand and is not a big deal. There is probably some way to adjust the inputs for a delay that would automatically resolve this problem, but I haven't really looked into it. At $16 each they are worth the time and money to try out. Another note, I've used SKYPE video calls with the audio input set to use a single overhead microphone (using these cables) and it works too. If you figured out the mic delay, one could theoretically set up a full mic ensemble and jam online. BUT, we all know that wouldn't be the same due to the inherent nature of online delay (its not real time, like standing next to someone), but it could still have its uses.
