Westlake, CA (July 18, 2014)—Blue Microphones has announced the availability of the Mikey Digital with Lightning connection, a stereo microphone for recording to an iPhone or iPad.
Mikey Digital features twin, custom-tuned condenser microphones with discrete mic pre-amplification and CD-quality A/D conversion, along with built-in gain control.
With Auto Level Sensing technology and multiple gain settings, Mikey Digital can reportedly handle audio levels up to 130 dB. Users can enable Mikey Digital to adjust to fluctuating volume levels or manually set low sensitivity for loud sources and high sensitivity for much quieter sources. Mikey Digital is equipped with an LED clipping indicator that flashes whenever volume levels are producing distortion, providing immediate feedback to adjust sensitivity for best recording results.
The microphone includes a 3.5mm stereo input for recording external sources like a lavalier mic, an instrument such as guitar or bass, or line-level signals like a DJ mixer or MP3 player. It also features a USB pass-thru connection for charging your device while in-use, for continuous recording without draining battery life.
