Umpire is a USB condenser mic, designed for podcasters, musicians, Skype, Hangouts, live streaming, Twitch and anyone using a USB mic in conjunction with a computer. Umpire features the same USB mic used on the popular Turret all-in-1 freestanding broadcasting system. It simply connects to a USB port on the computer. The user then loads their digital audio workstation (DAW) of choice or sets their mic preferences in their broadcasting/streaming application. At the heart of Umpire is a 14mm electric condenser mic chosen by studio professionals for its high sensitivity and crystal-clear sound. With on-board A/D conversion at 48kHz and 16-bit resolution, a wide-ranging frequency response and a focused cardioid polar pattern, Umpire captures every subtle nuance of the performance.
