The ASUS 15.6" ZenBook 15 UX534FTC Laptop with Vocal Recording Kit from B&H is designed for users looking to record clean audio for voice overs, soundboards, and more. To help you get started, this bundle includes an ASUS 15.6" ZenBook 15 UX534FTC laptop, a Rode NT-USB USB microphone, Senal SMH-1200 studio monitor headphones, and an Auray RF-C12R professional desktop isolation filter. Accessories aside, the ASUS ZenBook 15 features enough processing power and connectivity options to help you power through typical audio workflows. Users can also take advantage of its ScreenPad to quickly access extra functions and shortcuts for enhanced efficiency.
The ASUS 15.6" ZenBook 15 UX534FTC Laptop features a unique take on the touchpad with its ScreenPad 2.0. Like a smartphone screen, it offers plenty of functionality, but can also revert back to standard touchpad duties when needed. Its main display has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution complete with minimal bezels. Specs-wise, it's built with a 1.8 GHz Intel Core i7-10510U quad-core processor, 16GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce 1650 Max-Q graphics card. For storage, it's equipped with a single 512GB NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD. Other integrated features include an SD card reader, USB Type-A and Type-C ports, an HDMI port, and a combo audio jack. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home.
Record podcasts, voice-overs, and even sung vocals for your productions with the RODE NT-USB, a USB microphone that captures broadcast-quality recordings in your home studio or mobile setup. If all you have is a room and a computer (or iOS device), you can use this microphone to record your voice with resolution and clarity.
Podcasters will appreciate the cardioid polar pattern-which naturally reduces room noise by rejecting any audio to the back and rear of the mic's capsule-as well as the built-in pop filter to minimize p-pops and plosives. Musicians will love the Direct Mix Control, as it will help them balance the level between their own voice and pre-recorded instruments without incurring latency. Both will be thankful the mic comes with all the accessories one needs to set it up right out of the box.
The burgundy version of the SMH-1200 Enhanced Studio Monitor Headphones from Senal is tuned for accurate music reproduction and studio monitoring. With a closed-back, over-the-ear, foldable design and features like interchangeable twist-locking cables, extra-deep ear cushions, and a refined musical frequency response, the SMH-1200s are suitable for both audio professionals and enthusiasts.
Using 40mm Neodymium drivers, the headphones deliver a wide frequency response of 10 to 20,000 Hz with minimal distortion, a slightly boosted low end for well-defined bass and sub-bass, a smooth and pronounced midrange, and a clear intelligible high end. The extra deep ear pads provide comfort while wearing the headphones for extended listening sessions and help passively isolate the sound from external noise.
Physically, the SMH-1200s are designed to be robust and appropriate for use with professional audio equipment such as mixing consoles and headphone amplifiers. Their 58-ohm impedance can also operate with lower-power devices such as smart phones or MP3 players for mobile listening. Color-matched elements combine for an elegant look.
They come with two twist-lock detachable cables that can be easily swapped depending on the application. The coiled cable can extend from 4 to 10 feet and is intended for studio use. The 4-foot, tangle-free, fabric cable includes an inline microphone for phone calls and a control button for operating smart phones and other mobile devices. A wide range of accessories is supported.
To ensure years of reliable operation, the earcups feature wire guides to protect the cabling and maintain the performance of the SMH-1200.
The red RF-C12R Professional Desktop Isolation Filter from Auray is a desktop solution that allows music producers, broadcasters, and podcasters to get better recordings by isolating a microphone from vibrations and sound reflections, especially when its used in a space that is less than ideal for capturing audio. The Auray Desktop Isolation Filter makes capturing clean, dry vocals or instruments more natural sounding with less sonic coloration.
The RF-C12R fits on a desk or tabletop and uses multi-layer acoustic treatment to absorb unwanted ambient noise and control acoustic reflections. So, if you're recording vocals, voiceovers, or podcasts in an untreated room with hard surfaces, the RF-CF20 provides advanced microphone isolation.
