Blue Microphones, a leading microphone technology vendor, has introduced two new Applets for their Snowball USB Microphone which add further flexibility to its dual-capsule design by giving users more control over the input gain.
The Snowball has been popular with computer musicians because it is a relativley inexpensive USB microphone.
“In addition to its dual capsule design, these new applets add to the Snowball’s ability to record just about any source you put in front of it,” said Skipper Wise, President and Co-Founder of Blue Microphones. “And with ever expanding distribution of the mic, more computer users will have access to this high quality audio tool.”
Two new free firmware applets for the Snowball let you adjust gain levels on a Mac or PC for greater control in recording loud or soft sources. Download the low gain applet for loud sounds (like drums, electric guitars, louder singing). Download the high gain applet for quieter sounds like speech, podcasting, internet telephony, or recording sounds from a distance. You can also switch back and forth as often as you need.
