Product Information

  • Overview

    Whether you're recording a guitar at your kitchen table or a complete band in the studio, the Blue Mic Snowball microphone can capture it with detail unheard of before in a USB mic. The Snowball is a direct plug and play mic that connects to either a Mac or PC—no additional software is needed. And thanks to its dual capsule design and unique three-pattern switch, the Snowball can handle everything from soft vocals to podcasting to the loudest garage band.

    CD-quality stereo recording

    Snowball records in 16bit/44Khz using Blue's superior quality condenser capsules.

    Capture every sound

    With three pattern adjustments, the Snowball is ideal for variety of settings. Cardoid is great for vocals, voice over, podcasting, and internet communications. Cardioid with -10dB pad is ideal for instruments. And Omni is best for interviews, live recording and jam sessions.

    You don't need any complicated drivers—Snowball works automatically with all Mac models. It can also connect to your iPad using the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit (sold separately).

    Crystal Sound. I record vocals and use this on both Garageband and Logic Pro. It is easy as plug and play and for the money you ca Crystal Sound. I record vocals and use this on both Garageband and Logic Pro. It is easy as plug and play and for the money you can't get any better than this. It really does sound like a professional microphone. I am thoroughly impressed with Blue Microphones and as I advance in music production I am sure to remain with their microphones.

I picked one up expecting to return it, but once I connected to garage bang and ran my first recording, I realized that it far surpassed my expectations. Maybe high-end pros would find something negative, but from my experience, it's a totally great mic at a solid price. I just wished I had of picked a different color!
