Mackie Unveils 3 New Microphones | NAMM 2020

New for 2020, Mackie unveiled three microphones at the NAMM show in Anaheim that will be part of a new Element series: the EM-89D Live Vocal Dynamic Mic, the EM-91C large-diaphragm condenser mic, and the USB condenser the EM-USB.

First up, the EM-89 D is a live vocal dynamic microphone featuring a cardioid polar pattern. Though it can certainly do high-quality double-duty as a tool for recording your instruments and amplifiers, it's primarily designed to be a handheld on-stage tool tuned for vocals specifically.


Capitalizing on the growing number of streamers, gamers, and podcasters, the EM-USB is a USB condenser mic that works easily and proficiently without the need for an audio interface. The plug-and-play solution is USB-C capable and it features a headphone output and input level control.

Finally, the new large diaphragm condenser is called the Mackie EM-91C. It promises super warm and rich character for both vocals and instruments, and—similarly to the USB mic—Mackie targets online content producers, recommending this mic for their live streaming and/or voiceover recordings.

Each of these three new Element series mics will be available sometime this spring, so be sure to check back soon for more detailed information. For more news from the NAMM floor, click the orange banner below.
