Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video The MIC by Apogee (NEW), part of iPad Music Production: Inputs, Mics, and MIDI.
Another excellent professional level studio microphone that…you might want to consider is the Apogee mike.…This mike provides great sound for both music and vocals.…And it also fits nicely into the portability category.…It is a condenser mike.…But it draws all the power it needs from your iPad.…So as with other devices that draw power.…You will want to make sure your iPad is charged…up as much as possible before your recording session.…Out of the box it comes with both a…30 pin dock cable for connecting directly to the iPad.…Which means you'll be getting a pure digital…signal as well as a standard USB cable.…So you can use this microphone with your Mac or PC.…
It also ships with a small tripod that you can sit on a table top.…If you want to attach to a standard mic…stand though, you'll have to purchase Aperture mic clip accessories.…The mic itself requires very little in…terms of plugging in cables or making adjustments.…Unlike some of the other mics we've seen there is no headphone jack…on this mic so you'll do your monitoring through your iPad's headphone jack.…
