Overview

With the Blue Snowball, you finally get a USB microphone that's not only easy to use, but also sounds as good on your desktop as it does in a professional recording studio. Whether you're recording a guitar at your kitchen table or a complete band in the studio, the Snowball mic captures them both with the kind of detail unheard of before in a USB microphone.

The Blue Snowball is a direct plug-and-play mic that connects to either a Mac or a PC computer-no additional software is needed. With its dual capsule design and unique 3-pattern switch (cardioid, cardioid with -10dB pad, and omni), the Snowball microphone handles everything from soft vocals to the loudest garage band-and it's an ideal mic for podcasting.

The Snowball microphone has a unique swivel mount located on the bottom center of the mic body. Be sure to position the Snowball over the center leg of the tripod (not included) to further prevent tipping. Once mounted, gently pivot the Blue Snowball microphone back and forth for optimum positioning in front of the sound source.

Once safely mounted, connect the Snowball to the USB port on your Macintosh or Windows computer. Make sure that the active, on-axis side of the diaphragm (the side with the BLUE logo) is facing the desired sound source. When connected, the LED just above the Blue logo will glow red, indicating power has reached the Snowball and the microphone is ready to roll.

Great mic for starters

Comments about Blue Snowball USB Microphone:

I didn't think much of this mic when I first got it and friend of mine had it and used it with another mic for background vocals. But wow when I got it for myself and used it for recording lead vocals I couldn't believe the sound that came from it. I have done hundreds of songs with this mic and I would put its sound up against most USB mics. For as great as this mic works the price is practically a steal. If you know how to work with the program you have I can tell you that adding this guy to your small studio will give you close to professional sound. I might just stick with the Blue company from now on.

Great product for the money.. Period.

Comments about Blue Snowball USB Microphone:

Picked this little puppy up a couple days ago, and I must say.... WOW!! I never expected a USB condenser mic to be this versatile or be this easy to use. I've tried a couple USB interface devices in the past and I've always been disappointed at how hard they are to set up and use, on top of the quality that is produced not being that great. Most of the time I could do better with a tape recorder. But this thing blew me away. I mean, it's no Blue Bottle, but its terrific for using in conjunction with Garage Band for acoustic guitar and vocals. The three modes of the mic give you the freedom to change how your sound is being input into your interface, the swivel lets you direction the mic where it is most effective, and it just looks freakin cool. All around, amazing piece of gear. Definitely recommended for your at home projects or field recording..
