Elgato Wave 3 Streaming Microphone Review (Tutorial)

by birtanpublished on August 4, 2020

What's up everyone its mark from silence tech today we're checking out the old got a wave microphone a brilliant device for anyone wanting to up their audio game the included wave link software allows streamers to route audio from various sources to individual channels

Making life so much easier more on this later but first let's take a closer look at the microphone built from the ground up for creators in conjunction with experts sound engineers Lewis the way feels like a solid device while

Remaining light and compact I can tell a gotto of tried to keep the unit as light as possible since it will more than likely get mounted to a boom arm eventually the general construction is made of plastic which might put some

Users off paired with one hundred and fifty 999 US dollar price tag but once you see the software and how it's been flawlessly implemented with the microphone you will get a better idea of how much effort has gone into the final

Product checking out inside the box as well as the microphone you get a very long USB type-c cable a very sturdy metal desktop stands a boom arm adaptor and lastly a Quick Start Guide there's also a shock mount and pop filter that

Can be purchased separately priced at $3999 and $2999 for the latter on the top of the mic you can mute your voice with the lightest of touches and I feel this is the best solution to minimize any nasty loud knocks going out to your

Viewers although most people would probably just use their stream deck still it's great in emergencies and has been well implemented by the Ocasio team further down at the front so there's a very tactile high quality volume dial

Clicking it in cycles between three options the first allows you to adjust your voice level I prefer to have it on just two LEDs or 40% to remove any background noise the second option is for adjusting the headphone output

Delivered by a 35 millimeter headphone jack and lastly the third option adjusts the mix of real-time monitoring and PC audio I must also note that the headphone jack can send audio straight from my computer to my headphones so

It's not just used for monitoring my voice it eliminates the need for a separate DAC overall the audio quality I'm receiving to my headphones is as good as my more expensive duct and I'm not sure what they've done here it's

But it's mod I'm getting such amazing audio quality from a microphone they're sound engineers that LeWitt seem to have tweaked the audio levels are very well and while the sound is ultimately quite flat it still gives a very true-to-life

Audio signature perfect for monitoring now let's jump into the software as personally I feel it nice covering fairly in-depth it may look a little daunting at first but trust me you will learn the basics after 5 minutes first

We need to understand the software is not just for the mic itself it's built as an all-in-one solution for streamers to adjust their audio levels on the fly first of all you will have to install WAV link then you can open up your

Windows sound settings and there will be a huge amount of playback devices such as headphones aux 1 aux 2 browser and so on trust me this is heaven for any streamer next open up device preferences and see what apps are currently playing

Audio right now I have Chrome discord and Rainbow six siege detected and I can very easily assign them to any of the previously mentioned playback devices I chose browser for Google Chrome voice chat for discord and gain for Rainbow

Six siege now I can monitor each application in the wave link app and adjust the volume for either my headphones on the left or my stream on the right this is very impressive overall and it works very well for

Anyone wanting to take their streaming audio game to the next level plus underneath there are two master sliders super convenience the a icon also in the bottom right corner allows you to listen to what is being sent directly to your

Favorite streaming software the wave input is where you can update the microphones firmware it's a strange place for it to be regardless there is some other options as well so she's a low-cut filter and a clip guards toggle

Which works very well at stopping your voice going into the read you can also switch audio inputs and change the input name to whatever you want personally I was expecting some more options to change my voice maybe a bass and treble

Slider at least hopefully they will come in a future update so lastly what is the mic quality like very good especially for a USB microphone you have been listening to the wave this whole time as my voice is currently being recorded

With it I could quite happily use this mic for my youtube videos but in conjunction with audacity to tweak my voice a little since my voice has actually been tweaked with audacity I wanted

Do a live recording with no filters and now I have no filters they're all completely turned off and here is a listen to the background noise again discord and OBS have their own way to remove background noises so for a USB

Microphone I'm going to say that the wave performs very good in this area you are always going to hear some lastly here's a noise isolation test where I type on my keyboard again for a professional use you will want to pick

Up both the shock mount pop filter and a separate boom arm to attach to your desk testing testing one two anyway rounding off the augusto lineup just keeps on growing the company goes from strength to strength

I believe the wave microphone fits perfectly into their product lineup and I bet it will sell out super fast make sure to be quick if you're planning on picking one up well you could use Windows to do some of their audio

Adjustments the integration has been executed flawlessly to such a high degree I have had zero issues so far and I cannot wait to see what new features come with future updates I know a Gus are very good at supporting their

Products the stream deck is a great example of that in fact I've just received the recent updates that allows me to control every part of the wave link app and microphone with the stream deck going forward I would like to see

More options in the software to not only change the bass and treble on the microphone but a separate EQ to adjust the audio coming from my PC as well right now that's all that's stopping it from becoming the ultimate all-in-one

Solution not just for streamers but gamers in general as well anyway I can highly recommend the wave microphone from legato as huge potential going forward I really hope you've enjoyed my review

And quick tutorial of the software my name is Mark from silence tech I shall see you all very soon guys goodbye you you
