Product Information

  • Overview

    Studio quality anywhere

    About the size of an iPhone, MiC makes it easy to capture your best take with incredible quality, anywhere your music takes you. Record any sound you can imagine, from vocals to vibraphones, pianos to percussion and everything in between, and build a track right on your iPad with GarageBand.

    Three products in one small package

    MiC integrates a microphone, microphone preamp and an A/D converter into one compact device. Each part of MiC is designed to deliver the lowest noise and highest quality signal possible for a digital microphone. And it all fits in your pocket.

Having a Yamaha USB receiver as my sound output device, I wanted a USB mic of comparable quality for the sound input device. After evaluating a lot of choices, I settled on the Apogee, where their outstanding website and its thorough info and sound samples made it clear that these people are dead serious about high quality sound. It was also the case that I wanted a mic that looked great on my desktop, and not stick out like a bizarre thumb as some competing mics do. This is one of the best things I've ever bought, delivering high quality sound without taking up a lot of space.

Works GREAT for vocals and, with knowledge of mic positioning, sounds as good as any mic I've ever heard for acoustic guitars. Definitely do not regret buying!!!

    Easy set-up - I plugged it in and I was underway! I use GarageBand and the MiC has added an outstanding, accurate dynamic to my recordings. Correct line levels are achieved with the gain adjustment dial on the side of the unit. The manual also provides handy tips for positioning the MiC for best results.

    Well done Apogee!!

    Hi,
    I used the mic mostly with my iPad mini, but i connected it also to mac and Windows machine ( yes it works with windows, but Hi,
    I used the mic mostly with my iPad mini, but i connected it also to mac and Windows machine ( yes it works with windows, but not as usual USB mic but you need to install ASIO4all free asio drivers and off course use recording application which is able to use asio drivers - all DAW windows software and some consumer audio editing soft like Audacity compiled with asio support... it is not perfect but works for me and some other people)
    - Regarding the sound, this is really great.
    - Build quality - all metal housing speaks for itself - actually it is pretty heavy for the size because of it...
    - Regarding the cabling, all cables are short but... if you need longer cable and you are using mac then instead of buying dedicated expensive Apogee 3m cable you can use cheap USB extension cable.
    What's more, if you need a longer connection to your iPad and -! if you already have an apple lightning to USB Camera Adapter !- then u can use a trick and instead of using apogee_to_lightning short cable ( or buying Apogee expensive extension) you can use (Apogee_to_USB)+(USB extension cable)+( Apple lightning to USB Camera Adapter) and it should work as I tried with my iPad mini this connection without the USB extension (Apogee_to_USB)+( Apple lightning to USB Camera Adapter) and it worked fine :) an extension cable of 3 meters should not cause the trouble in my opinion.

    I just got my new Mic 96K today. I hooked it up to my iPad and immediately started recording. The sound quality is great and my pa I just got my new Mic 96K today. I hooked it up to my iPad and immediately started recording. The sound quality is great and my past experience with Apogee has been stellar. Not only are they serious about their mic quality, but they are serious about excellent customer service. That is worth a lot to me.

    I do recommend that you purchase the case for it as it makes everything compact and offers protection and an easy way to take a long the tripod, cords and adapter.
