With its adjustable polar patterns, this microphone is incredibly versatile, allowing you to record a variety of recording types in a variety of settings. Plug it directly into your computer, place it on your desk, and you're ready to go.
Use the stereo setting to record some music; then switch it to the bidirectional to record a two-person podcast; then switch it to the more directional cardioid setting to record a voiceover. The possibilities are endless.
This mic doesn't just give you versatility - it gives you high quality audio, too, capturing 48kHz/16 bit broadcast quality sound. The UM700 will give you all the flexibility and quality you need, whatever you end up creating with it.
