In the age of the vlogger it is important to get the right gear for the job – equipment that offers professional quality without costing the earth (not until you rack up your first million Youtube hits anyway). Apogee’s new Mic+ USB microphone is just such a peripheral that is ideal for music production, voice recording, Youtube or live streaming. An upgrade on Apogee’s original
USB mic, the Mic+ boasts a new design and features improved sound quality, dynamic range and a built-in headphone output for latency-free monitoring while recording on any device.
The pro-quality cardioid capsule coupled with the high sensitivity and ample gain give the Mic+ a sound that is akin to the top studio condenser mics going through high-end preamps – only you will know that this is just a portable USB mic and not something out of Abbey Road! Fully portable, the mic connects easily to your Mac or IOS device (it comes with Lightning, USB-C and USB-A cables) making it perfect for mobile recording.
And the PUREDIGITAL connection allows for pristine sound quality up to 24-bit/96khz.
The controls on the mic consist of a headphone output Blend control button for zero latency recording and a dial to adjust the gain (you can push it in to mute). Three LEDS also allow you to monitor the status, input level and Blend mode. Aside from the cables, the mic also ships with a desktop tripod and stand adaptor. Expensive, but worth every goddamn penny.
As well as blend control, the mic has a dial to adjust the gain (you can push this in to mute it) On the bottom of the mic is a microusb port for charging/connection and a 3.5mm AUX port for headphones The mic comes with a handy tripod and microphone stand adaptor (as well as USB-C, USB-A and Lightning cables)
