When you are gaming, streaming, or even podcasting one of the most important things is your audio quality. Many people starting out will opt for a USB microphone, but as you go a long you really might want to upgrade to an XLR microphone. In order for your XLR microphone to work with your PC you are going to need some type of audio interface. Today we are taking a look at the Creative Sound Blaster K3+ which is not only an audio interface, but also a mixer with a built-in soundboard. It offers two XLR inputs with phantom power, a guitar input, 4-pole mobile input and traditional line in as well. The best part about it, is that it is plug and play, there is no software you just plug it in and it works. Let’s take a look and see what it is all about!
The Sound Blaster K3+ comes in a nice retail package. On the front it has a picture of the unit and many of the features are listed.
Flipping over to the back some more features are detailed including how you can link 2 or more K3+’s together.
Getting everything out of the box we have the Sound Blaster K3+ unit, USB cable, normal audio cable, and a user’s guide.
