Blue Microphones Nessie

Curiously shaped USB microphone hits Apple stores from Blue, promising to give songwriters and vocalists enhanced sound in real time

lue Microphones, the company behind the world’s first professional USB mic, have brought out a new model in the shape of Nessie. The sea monster-shaped microphone promises to deliver studio-enhanced sound for desktop recording of vocals, instruments and voiceovers. With a built-in pop filter and internal shockmount, to reduce harsh plosives and disruptive rumbling and vibrations, the mic adapts to the recording subject, applying studio processing, without the need for additional mixing or editing.

This adaptive processing, including EQ, de-esser and level control, automatically refines audio in real time, rather like model point-and-shoot cameras will reduce redeye and automatically adjust focus.

Nessie’s three recording modes are optimised for vocals, more detailed instruments or an option for raw audio, and employs a single custom-tuned condenser capsule with a cardioid pattern. It features a zero-latency headphone output for direct monitoring, while headphone volume and instant mute are located directly on the microphone.

Nessie is plug-and-play compatible via USB with both PC and Mac with driverless installation. For mobile recording, you can connect to iPad using Apple’s camera adapters that can be bought separately.
