I tested a Thronmax MDrill Zero Plus microphone. The Rosa is a gorgeous pale pink variation of their leading mic, the MDrill Zero Plus that comes in black.
The microphone features 10 per cent more clarity and accuracy than other USB microphones thanks to the Vertigain Technology. There are no latency delays. This provides excellent broadcast quality sound for video conferencing, meetings and vocal recording.
The microphone allows to make 96kHz recordings with two dedicated recording modes:
- Cardioid – streaming, podcasts, voice-overs, instruments
- Omnidirectional – conference calls, events
The box contains a microphone, USB cord, windshield sponge, warning card and full-colour instruction guide.
The warning card says: “Important. All condenser microphones are very sensitive to moisture. For close vocal use, Thronmax strongly recommends the use of a pop filter or foam wind screen to prevent permanent damage to the transducer.”
You’ll need a PC or Mac with a USB port connected to the motherboard running Microsoft Windows 7 or higher, or Apple Mac OS 10.7 or higher.
When I attempted to use the microphone, the large LED light glowed and the microphone was automatically recognized. If it isn’t, you may need to select it from the sound settings. Please note you need to use the USB ports near your motherboard, and they use a reversible Type C connection.
You can monitor the audio recording by connecting a pair of headphones to the AUX port. The bottom knob controls the headphone volume.
The left bean setting is for cardioid use – usually one person. The top setting turns the microphone off. The right circle setting is suitable for 365 audio omni-directional recording, or more than one person.
Thronmax has a range of condenser microphones ideal for use in a studio, podcast, video conferencing and field recordings.
