Thanks to its USB connection, the beyerdynamic Fox is compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems and can be used in the studio, at home, or as part of a mobile rig with a laptop or MacBook. It can also be connected to iOS and Android devices using the included USB adapter cable (OTG adapter for Android and Lightning-to-USB for iOS). A notable feature of the Fox is the Mix control knob on the front of the microphone. This is used to adjust the balance between the playback sound from the connected device and the microphone’s monitoring sound. Besides enabling musicians to create the perfect mix when recording, this also has its benefits for online gamers and live streamers: By turning up the monitoring level of your own voice via the Mix control, you will be less likely to shout too loudly into the microphone in heated gaming situations and startle the entire neighbourhood.
Smart and Versatile
The term “all-rounder” has long been overused when it comes to product descriptions, but it perfectly describes the beyerdynamic Fox. This microphone is ideal for home studios and for mobile recording, and it goes without saying that it is compatible with well-known DAW software programs such as Cubase LE. The Fox gives singer-songwriters, musicians, podcasters, gamers, and YouTubers an affordable and easy-to-use companion for high-quality recording and is also an excellent upgrade for those who work from home and have to constantly make video calls one after the other. As well as providing much greater clarity for the listener, it can keep at bay unwanted noise thanks to its clever mute button – which could really save the day if the kids unexpectedly barge into the room.
Perfect for Home Recording
With the beyerdynamic Fox, taking your first steps in music production is as easy as picking up your acoustic guitar, warming up your voice, and starting up your laptop. Thanks to its plug-and-play functionality, no driver installation is required when using the Fox with a Windows or macOS system. Simply launch your preferred recording software, and you are ready to capture a musical performance. A useful complement to the Fox is a good pair of headphones for monitoring purposes. beyerdynamic offers an extensive range of high-quality models such as the legendary DT 770 PRO, but of course any model equipped with a 3.5 mm jack can be used.
