Blue Microphones releases Spark Digital condenser microphone
Wednesday, November 7, 2012 @ 9:30pm

Blue Microphones has unveiled the first studio microphone for both Apple's 30-pin iOS dock connector and USB -- the Spark Digital. The new digital version of the microphone features the same studio-grade condenser capsule and hand-selected components as the original, delivering high-fidelity recording and consistent performance.



The microphone also features studio controls directly on the microphone including volume, gain control, and instant mute. In addition, Spark Digital is the only iPad microphone to offer a zero-latency headphone out for direct monitoring, critical for eliminating distracting delay or for creating professional multi-track recordings where new tracks need to be synced with existing tracks. Spark Digital also employs a feature found only on the original Spark: the Focus control, providing two different sonic options in one mic. In the off position, the microphone captures audio with enhanced low frequency sensitivity for recordings with greater impact and definition, and ‘Focus On’ captures greater clarity and detail for a tighter, more focused sound. A custom angle-adjustable desk stand with built-in shock mount protects against disruptive rumblings and vibrations from a desktop surface and allows users to quickly position the microphone.  Spark Digital is directly compatible with the iPad, iPad 2, iPad third generation, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and is instantly recognized for use with any recording app, in addition to driverless connection via USB on both PC and Mac. The Spark Digital microphone is now available in-store and online for $200 at Apple's retail store, Best Buy, and will be arriving soon at Guitar Center, Amazon and additional consumer electronics and pro audio retailers worldwide.
