Presonus Revelator - Professional USB Microphone

Presonus Revelator - Professional USB Microphone

Stand out from the crowd.

Revelator is the first USB microphone to deliver voice processing to polish your sound and an easy-to-use loopback mixer to bring in multiple sources from other software applications—all built into a studio-grade microphone that connects right to your computer, Chromebook, and iOS/iPadOS devices. 

 

Studio sound made easy.

More than a USB microphone: Revelator features compressors and EQs modeled on world-class analog processors; an independent reverb bus lets you add just the right amount of shimmer to your sound; plus two stereo loopback channels make it easy to add backing tracks and more. Revelator is the ultimate microphone for streaming and recording solo musicians.

Elevate your podcast.

Revelator packs everything you need for your podcasting studio into an elegant USB microphone: classic broadcast vocal sound and presets created with the same StudioLive digital processing used professional broadcasters all over the world; plus selectable pick-up patterns and an onboard loopback mixer that make recording in-person and online interviews a breeze. It’s everything you need at a price that won’t break the budget.

Level up your game stream.

No other USB microphone provides as much flexibility when you’re streaming gameplay. Easy-to-use presets help remove keyboard clicks and polish your voice...or completely transform it. An onboard loopback mixer lets you combine gameplay audio, Discord chats, and more. All in an elegant design that looks great on camera.
