Blue Microphones make some of the best quality studio condenser mics around, whether they’re for professional or home studio use.
Endgadget just posted about the new Blue Microphones Spark Digital, which is compatible with your computer via USB or your iPad, iPad Mini or iPhone (pictured below).
Here’s what Endgadget says: The final member of the Blue Microphones trio that we saw introduced back at CES is finally hitting shelves. Blue’s dual-connecting Spark Digital is now shipping from Apple and Best Buy with other retailers soon to follow. If you’ll recall, the mobile recording peripheral touts the label of “the first true studio condenser microphone made for both iPad and USB.” An adjustable desk stand, all of the requisite cables and six month subscriptions to both Gobbler and SoundCloud Pro are included right out of the box. You can snag one for yourself for $200 just as fast as you can click. However, if you’ve already splurged for a new iPad, iPad mini or the iPhone 5, you’ll need a Lightning adapter before you can get started.
Our Take: This is a top quality microphone, and it’s compatibility with the iPad, iPhone, etc. has now redefined the term “portable studio” – We’ll be snapping one of these up ASAP.
