Mackie Releases New Element Series USB Microphones

Mackie has expanded its EleMent Series with a variety of new additions. The line of professional-quality mics first launched in January 2020 and continues to grow this fall with five new products: EM-91CU USB Condenser Microphone, Carbon Premium USB Condenser Microphone, Chromium Premium USB Condenser Microphone with Build-in 2-Channel Mixer, DB-100 Desktop Microphone Boom Arm, and PF- 100 Pop Screen.

“The EleMent Series combines the qualities that Mackie is known for: studio-quality sound, affordability, and Built-Like-A-Tank construction,” said Craig Reeves, Product Manager at Mackie. “and now this great microphone series offers even more versatility and choice for musicians, content creators, educators, and beyond.”

In addition to the new USB microphones, Mackie is also now offering their affordable MC-100 Professional Closed-Back Headphones, which were previously only available as part of Mackie gear bundles, as a standalone product that can be purchased separately.

Product Details

The EM-91CU USB Condenser Microphone can be used for content creation, online meetings, voiceover and music. This plug-and-play, rugged and reliable mic is built with a cardioid polar pattern to help reject unwanted sound. It also utilizes a USB connection and includes a cable in the box for studio and home studio recording. The EM-91CU has a sample rate of 16 bit/48kHz and comes with a shock mount.

The Carbon Premium USB Condenser Microphone is designed with legendary Onyx mic preamp circuitry, which provides crystal clear sound and ultra-low noise. The rugged construction offers five selectable polar patterns, including stereo, cardioid, bi-directional, super cardioid, and omni. The onboard USB interface plugs directly into a computer for fast, easy recording. The Carbon has a sample rate of 16 bit/48kHz and comes with a mic stand and USB-C cable.

The Chromium Premium USB Condenser Microphone features a built-in 2-channel mixer with instrument and stereo 1/8” inputs. The reliable, plug-and-play mic offers four polar patterns, including stereo, cardioid, bi-directional, and omni. Equipped with a built-in mixer stand, USB-C cable, and a sample rate of 16 bit/48kHz, the Chromium is engineered for recording music, podcasts, live streams, and online content creation.

The DB-100 Desktop Microphone Boom Arm is designed with sturdy steel construction to ensure easy and reliable attachment to any desk. The hook and loop straps included keep the cable secured and provide users with a cleaner look.

The PF-100 Pop Screen for EleMent Series Microphones eliminates low frequency pops and thumps for the best possible sound. The professional Pop Screen keeps signal levels more consistent for higher quality sound.

The MC-100 Professional Closed-Back Headphones bring the signature Mackie headphone sound and build quality into an even more affordable price point. Lightweight yet sturdy, MC- 100 headphones are the perfect companion for EleMent Series USB Microphones creating an affordable, professional setup.
