The Blue Snowball incorporates Blue's revolutionary Ball microphone design with the added convenience of a USB output. The USB output enables audio signal to be fed directly to software based recording applications without unnecessary preamplifier's or hardware. The Snowball incorporates two separate capsules for true cardioid and omni-directional pick up. The cardioid polar pattern has a more focused pick up and generally "hears" what the capsule is pointed at. The omni-directional pattern features a generous pick up area at the front and sides of the microphone capsule. The sensitivity and signal character of the Snowball results in outstanding clarity and detail while capturing vocals, guitar, drums, percussion and more. A -10dB Pad switch provides added headroom and minimizes distortion when capturing audio at excessive levels.
A definite balance between convenience, design and function, the Blue Snowball is ideal for project studio recording, web casting, voice-over recording and more.
