Mikey Digital is the highest quality and most versatile solution for recording audio on-the-go with your iPhone or iPad. “Mikey Digital features the same capsules used in our award-winning Snowball and Yeti USB microphones, delivering the rich, detailed audio that Blue is known for. With its input jack, Mikey Digital transforms from a mic into a direct interface for recording guitar, connecting a lavaliere mic or capturing line level audio straight to your iOS device. John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones
Now featuring both Automatic and Manual gain settings, users can enable Mikey Digital to intelligently adjust to fluctuating volume levels or manually set low sensitivity for extremely loud sources and high sensitivity for 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. Mikey Digital also rotates 230 degrees for optimal positioning or to align with the front- or rear- facing camera to capture enhanced audio for your iPhone or iPad video.
Mikey Digital includes a guitar adapter for connecting instruments such as guitar and bass to the multi-source 3.5mm input jack, which also accepts stereo line-in and mic-in. Whether recording through the premium capsules or multi-source jack, Mikey Digital records the highest fidelity possible on the iOS platform using Blue’s built-in, high-quality mic preamp and a CD-quality A/D converter.
