Blue Microphone Announces Mikey Digital with Lightning Connection

Posted July 18, 2014 by .Omar Correa in News

Blue Microphones announces the availability of Mikey Digital with Lightning connection, a premium stereo microphone for recording on iPhone and iPad. With Mikey Digital it has never been easier to capture pristine audio on your iOS device using any popular audio or video application. Mikey Digital features two, custom-tuned condenser microphones — the same used in the award-winning Yeti and Snowball microphones– along with built-in sensitivity control for capturing CD-quality audio. Mikey Digital, MSRP $99.99, is available now at Amazon.com.

One of the most common challenges when recording on mobile devices is having audio levels too quiet or too loud; either way a recording can be ruined. With Auto Level Sensing technology and multiple gain settings, Mikey Digital protects your recordings from distortion, handling extremely loud audio levels up to 130dB. Users can enable Mikey Digital to intelligently adjust to fluctuating volume levels or manually set low sensitivity for loud sources and high sensitivity for much quieter sources. Mikey Digital is equipped with an LED clipping indicator that flashes whenever volume levels are producing distortion, providing immediate feedback to adjust sensitivity for best recording results. Mikey Digital also rotates 230 degrees for optimal positioning. With the reversible Lightning connection, you can capture sound from any direction and align with the front- or rear- facing camera.

Mikey Digital includes a high-performance 3.5mm stereo input for recording external sources like a lavalier mic, an instrument such as guitar or bass, or line-level signals like a DJ mixer or MP3 player. Whether recording through the premium capsules or multi-source input jack, Mikey Digital records the highest fidelity possible on the iOS platform using Blue’s built-in discrete microphone preamp and a CD-quality A/D converter.

Mikey Digital also features a USB pass-thru connection for charging your device while in-use, for continuous recording without draining battery life.
