The UC4-B USB Professional Multi-Pattern Microphone from Senal is a high-resolution USB microphone with three selectable polar patterns and stereo, that is easy to set up and captures audio with great accuracy and clarity. It can be used when connected directly to a Mac or Windows USB port (sold separately) to capture vocals and instruments for podcasts, voiceovers, and professional broadcast productions.

The UC4-B features an internal A/D converter that offers 16/24-bit rate and up to 192 kHz resolution for a natural sound. An innovative triple-capsule array allows you to record in stereo to capture ambient sound, or select between cardioid, bidirectional, or omnidirectional polar patterns. And the headphone output lets you monitor your session with zero latency. Whatever the event, the UC4-B has a solution to perfectly capture the sound. Plug-and-play connectivity and simple, intuitive controls will have you recording broadcast-quality sound in seconds.

Pro-Quality Audio
Add polish to your podcasts, vocals, or voiceovers with professional-quality audio. The UC4-B offers up to 192 kHz resolution in either 16-or 24-bit rate for natural sound right from your desktop. The mic can capture the nuances of a vocal or an instrument and the wide frequency response and high sensitivity ensure that the recording will be clear and accurate.
USB
An analog-to-digital converter and phantom power aren't necessary to use the UC4-B microphone because it's all built in. It plugs directly to your computer via a powered USB port and does the A/D conversion internally.
Stereo and Multiple Polar Patterns
The UC4-B's innovative triple-capsule array allows you to select between cardioid, bidirectional, or omnidirectional polar patterns, which makes this microphone a great choice for almost any application. The stereo option lets you record ambient sound or realistic-sounding dialog to a wide stereo field.
Latency-Free Monitoring
Nothing can gum up a session faster than latency problems from monitoring from your computer's headphone jack. The UC4-B's lets you monitor your session with zero latency from the built-in headphone jack.
Low Noise
The microphone amplifier's circuit is designed to ensure a low-noise and low power-consumption output. A quiet and accurate recording is always the goal, and the UC4-B delivers.
Onboard Control
The gain control, mute switch, headphone volume, and polar pattern selector are all conveniently located right on the microphone. There's no need to stop what you're doing to adjust your settings.
Plug and Play Operation
When you first connect the UC4-B to your computer, the initial setup is effortless. After that, when you're ready to go to work, just plug your UC4-B into an available USB port, and begin your session.
Desktop Stand
The desktop stand is both sturdy and stylish and will be an eye-catching addition to any studio. Locking knobs control the swivel, so your mic will be aimed exactly where you need it.
Mic Stand Mountable
The UC4-B isn't just a desktop mic. If you prefer to stand up when you record, a 5/8 threaded socket on the bottom of the mic lets you mount the UC4-B to a standard microphone stand.

I purchased this to upgrade my online covid experience. It’s very easy to use and has been great in zoom/ online meetings. I also use this to record classical/operatic singing and there hasn’t been any issues.

Great microphone for non-pros

For Zoom meetings etc, this microphone meets the needs. I had to set the gain to max so that I could speak without being close to the microphone. Users tell me they hear me fine.

Given that the price of this mic is around $130, I expected a bit better quality. If you are looking for a Blue Yeti-like quality, you may want to look for something better.

Crisp, clear and awesome!

I purchased this wonderful microphone to add voiceovers to a few video projects I’ve been working on.and to use as a microphone for video meetings with my colleagues during mandatory telework. The microphone was very easy to install- essentially ‘plug and play’ on my iMac and MacBook Pro. It was also easy to set up for google meetings. Using it with final cut is simple and the sound is clear and crisp. Being able to set the gain on the mic is a nice feature as is the ability to switch between modes. For meetings, the mute button is handy- saves a bit of time. My colleagues have told me that my audio sounds great and the echo that is common from built-in mics used during google meetings is conspicuously absent. I definitely recommend the Senai UCB-4 for someone making short and fun videos using prosumer or pro gear and for for superior audio during video meetings. It’s always good to sound good! -The price point was perfect for me as well!

Perfect for video meetings and sharing music

Arrived promptly and worked perfectly out of the box. Plug and play no need for any additional software. Both social media and recording software recognize it immediately.

Love my Mic!

For starters I am not an audiophile, but, like everyone else I am doing so many things from the home office, teaching classes, running dnd games, and the endless cycle of meetings. I wanted a simple, yet GOOD microphone to up the quality of audio and the Senal UC4-B delivered. My students and players have all been impressed with the upgrade. Firstly, it comes packaged beautifully, like any true premium item should. you will notice the weight immediately as you remove it from its foam bed. Next, it has real knobs! with clickable resistance (aside for the headphone audio in front). Simple to install, just connect USB and select the mic in your sound settings. nice bright green/red (on/mute) light. headphone jack makes it so simple to monitor how you sound on live, which is pretty cool! The stand it comes with is removable, and is not a cheapy piece either. PROS: easy to use USB, great knobs, headphone jack, sounds great! excellent construction. CONS: its heavy - but this is really due to its amazing construction. whenever computer restarts or wakes up from sleep the mic defaults to green on, instead of staying on mute. [I received this product in exchange for my honest review.]

No complaints - I use this for Zoom conferences and most folks on the other end think the quality is fine.

It will work through a Thunderbolt 3/ USB-C connection on a Macbook Pro. But you will need this Apple USB-C to A adapter to connect it. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1128928-REG/apple_mj1m2am_a_usb_c_to_usb_adapter.html.

Can I use this microphone with my Iphone 10 with the lightining to usb converter for zoom calls ?
Asked by: Pradeep
No. According to Apple, external microphones will not work with iPhones for video calls or conferencing apps like Zoom or FaceTime and only the built-in mic will work for those types of apps. External mics can be used with the iPhone for recording audio with video and for regular audio calls. Additionally, the UC4-B was designed for use with a computer and it will work for Zoom video calls with a computer. The mic would probably work for recording audio on the iPhone with the Lightning to USB adapter, though it would drain the phone's battery very quickly because it draws power via USB and more power than the iPhone can supply. iPhones were not designed for use with this type of mic.
