Variable Pattern Control Knob
MXL Revelation features a continuously variable pattern selector located on the Revelation power supply. This knob allows you to alter the polar pickup pattern of the mic from omni-directional to figure 8, and everything in-between. This can be done with the mic turned on without causing any damage to the unit. To change the polar pattern, simply rotate the knob to customize the mic's pickup pattern for your specific recording application. After rotating the knob to a new polar pattern, it will take a few seconds for the capsule to charge back up. During these few seconds, we recommend muting your speakers because you will hear static. Remember that there is no single right way to finding the perfect sound.

Ground Lift Switch
A ground loop is unwanted interference that can be created when multiple electronic devices improperly share a common ground. The Revelation includes a Ground Lift switch to help prevent such occurrences. If a ground loop is audible (usually a 50-60Hz humming noise), the ground lift switch on the front of the power supply should be set to the 'lift' position.

Phase Switch
MXL Revelation also contains a phase switch, allowing you to reverse the polarity of the mic signal by 180 degrees. This minimizes phase issues when recording with multiple mics.

Bass Roll-off Switch
The power supply of MXL Revelation features a bass roll-off switch to help reduce proximity effect. Proximity effect is distortion that often occurs when a sound source is too close to the mic. Some mic patterns boost bass as you get closer to the mic. The bass roll-off switch reduces the low frequencies for a more full range sound.

-10dB Pad
MXL Revelation can be used in very loud sonic environments. If you hear distortion from the mic, engage the -10dB pad on the rear of the mic to the -10dB position. You may also move the mic farther away from the sound source.
