Designed for people who require one audio input and little fuss, the Saramonic SmartRig UC is an interface that connects a microphone or instrument to a digital device with a USB Type-C connector. It accepts XLR or 1/4" connections by means of its single combination input. Thanks to the unit's 3.5mm output, you can monitor audio over most models of wired headphones.
A 48V phantom-power selector is on hand to drive condenser mics. This selector also functions as the overall on/off switch for the unit. A gain knob controls the input level. The SmartRig UC draws power from a single 9V battery. It operates at 44.1 or 48 kHz.
