Presonus Revelator Professional USB Microphone for Podcasting, Live Streaming & More
A studio in a mic.
Every musician knows the secret to a great sound is a great microphone, and at its core, Revelator™ delivers the professional performance you’d expect from a studio microphone. But we didn’t stop there. Revelator’s mixer features compression and EQ modeled on world-class analog processors. An independent reverb bus lets you add just the right amount of shimmer to your sound. Two stereo loopback channels make it easy to add backing tracks and more. When you’re looking for the ultimate live streaming and home recording set-up for singer-songwriters, look no further than Revelator.
Studio sound made easy.
Revelator is the first USB microphone to provide State Space-modeled analog processing onboard with the same Fat Channel gate, compressor, and EQ our StudioLive Series III mixers offer. You can enjoy extensive, studio-style processing whether recording in the studio or streaming live. And once you’ve dialed in that perfect sound, you can save it as a preset to use over and over again at the press of a button. An independent reverb bus lets you add shimmer to your performance with ease. Like what you hear? All processing can be printed to your recording, or just used for your monitor mix, you decide.
A mic for any occasion.
Professional studios feature a locker full of different microphones so audio engineers have the right tool for the job. Don’t let the single-mic recording set-up fool you, Revelator features three different pick-up patterns for maximum flexibility.
- For performances when you’re recording solo, use Cardioid Mode to pick up the sound you want and remove the sounds you don’t.
- Recording with a friend? Change to Figure 8 Mode to use one side of the mic for you and the other for your partner. This is ideal for duos where one person is singing and the other is playing guitar.
- Recording with a few friends? Switch to Omnidirectional Mode to pick up sound all the way around the microphone, perfect of those campfire-like jam sessions.
Whatever you’re recording, Revelator can adapt to fit your needs.
Add some backing tracks to your live stream.
Gigging musicians know that a powerful way to add backing tracks to a performance is with a digital mixer. That’s why we built one into Revelator! Open up Universal Control and you’ll find an easy-to-use loopback mixer that lets you quickly route backing track audio from your DAW of choice to your live stream. This is also a great rehearsal tool; letting you listen to sketches, new songs, and more all while monitoring at zero latency through studio-quality compression and EQ that will bolster your confidence.
Go live whenever, however.
Revelator’s presets are stored on the mic, so you can take your sound with you and connect directly to your iPad Pro, or grab your Camera Connection Kit and connect your Revelator to your Lightning- or USB-C-equipped iPhone or iPad. Only Revelator lets you bring studio quality sound to Facebook Live, IGTV, or anywhere else you stream to from your mobile device.
