Create studio-quality recordings with Blue Microphone鈥檚 Snowball, a USB microphone with exceptional sound-capture capabilities.
The Snowball produces crisp, clean recordings that are free of feedback and distortion.
A unique pattern switch allows you to toggle between three different settings, giving you the flexibility to record vocals, instrumental music, podcasts, interviews, and more.
With a plug-and-play design that is both Mac and PC compatible, the Snowball requires no additional drivers and is ready to record straight out of the box.
Using Blue鈥檚 proprietary dual-capsule technology, the Snowball can record a wide range of situations.
Its multiple pattern capability makes it an ideal choice for recording music, podcasts, Skype conversations, and live chat. Depending on what kind of sound you are recording, you can choose from three distinct pattern modes.
In addition to four different color choices: textured white, gloss white, gloss black or brushed aluminum, you also get a telescoping tripod that connects with a ball joint style angler that lets you position the mic just right.
The mic is USB only-digital only, meaning this plugs into your USB port of your laptop or PC and not into an amp. Direct to digital. Really nice.
It installs automatically when plugged into the PC and a red light goes on at the top, indicating it鈥檚 powered up by the USB port.
There is a switch in the back that provides three built-in modes of recording, two cardioid (weighted to the front) and one polar (surround-sound, recording in 360 degrees.)
One of the cardioid modes has a -10 dB attenutation that lets loud sounds be recorded cleanly and without degradation.
Here are some great features of the Snowball Microphone:
* Uniquely designed plug-and-play USB mic connects to either a Mac or PC
* Dual capsule design and unique three-pattern switch can handle everything from soft vocals to loud garage band
