Blue Mic : Straight from Showroom Floor


At CES we see many products that , sadly, never make it to the market place.So we're happy to report that the new Blue Mic line is out now and we had a chance to play with them.

Blue Mic established themselves with the Mikey mic, which was a boon for home recording, and the new Yeti Pro takes it one step further for musicians.The versatile multi-pattern USB mic, is the world’s first ever THX-certified microphone, and features Blue’s premium condenser capsules in a proprietary triple capsule array, hosting four recording patterns (stereo, omni, cardioid, and bi-directional) that give the user incredible versatility to produce studio-quality recordings in a wide range of situations, i.e. vocals, live or event recording, interviews, broadcasts, instruments, bands, etc. ( Yeti Pro can capture digital audio with up to four times the clarity found on CDs. )

Not only is it a high quality mic, but at $250 its affordable to most aspiring artists. The installation couldn't be easier. (If you're a Mac user, GarageBand recognizes it.)


At CES, we saw the next gerneration Blue Microphones, which were impressive. If you're recording music or videos on your iPhone or iPad -and who isn't these days- there's the brand-new Mikey Digital, a plug-and-play external mic for capturing professional-quality audio on iPod touch, iPhone 4/S and iPad with any iOS audio app. Mikey Digital captures stereo recordings with the highest resolution possible on the iOS platform. A multi-input jack for easy plug-in of other sources such as guitars, instruments, handheld mics, and other sources and a USB pass-thru connection for charging in-use, makes Mikey Digital a perfect multifaceted recording interface for a wide range of sources. ($99) It took the 2012 CEA Innovations award winner in portable multimedia accessories.


Blue also showed off Spark Digital, the first studio-grade mic to offer both iPad and USB connectivity. The combination of Spark Digital’s direct connection to iPad, along with numerous available recording apps such as GarageBand, provides the first mobile studio setup for the iPad platform. In addition, Spark Digital offers USB connectivity, delivering studio-quality audio to any computer, laptop or tablet with USB. ($199)

Musicians rejoice.
