PreSonus has introduced its new Revelator USB microphone. Intended primarily for home studio use as well as podcasting and voice-overs, the mic includes accessible presets, loopback audio, and selectable polar patterns.
The Revelator offers the same DSP algorithms found in PreSonus’ StudioLive Series III mixers, providing users with eight presets with various combinations of EQ and compression, and offers an additional eight user-defined presets that can be created and saved using the full StudioLive Fat Channel controls available in Universal Control. Also onboard are a selection of voice effects and the ability to store up to four presets to be instantly selectable via the preset button on Revelator.
Revelator also features two stereo streams for loopback audio so users can conference in Zoom calls, record gameplay, or showcase the audio in a YouTube video. The presence of two streams for loopback audio means users can mix and record the audio from two different applications on a computer, along with their voice, at the same time using the intuitive interface in Universal Control. Built-in monitoring and an onboard headphone amplifier let users listen to your performance and your mix in real-time.
Three pickup patterns are provided — cardioid pattern, for one-person use; figure 8 for two users, such as in an interview situation; and omnidirectional to pick up multiple speakers around the microphone.
The bus-powered, USB-C-compatible mic comes with PreSonus’ Studio One Artist recording and production software and Studio Magic Software Suite, as well as an integrated desktop stand with built-in cable management.
Revelator is available now for a U.S. street price of $179.95.
