  • I can record anywhere with my best microphones

    As reviewed by Phil Seymour on 6/2/2009

    I like using my Macbook to record in natural settings, but to use my good microphones, I had to have power for my mixer. Not anymore. The "Icicle", lets me use a quality condenser mic to add a vocal track in an canyon or cave with the natural echo I like for a particular song. I tried the USB microphones that are designed to plug into a computer, but the sound quality is very poor. They also have a pesky headphone feature that affects monitoring in a bad way. With the Icicle, I can plug in the appropriate mic for the recording circumstance, with phantom power if needed, anywhere I go. Perfect!

  • Windows 7 Users Beware

    As reviewed by WILLAIM MANN on 1/2/2013

    I received the Blue Icicle as a gift and found myself frustrated as I attempted to use it. After a little research online I found that, despite the website claiming that the icicle works with Windows 7, there are countless reviews and forums where people cannot get the icicle to work on it. The device claims to require a driver that does not exist and thus, it will not work. I've had no personal use of the device except through a Mac user I know and can only say that he seems to be satisfied with it. I'm posting this because I see 5 stars for a product review and no one has said anything about the fact that the device does not work on Windows 7.
