Apogee Electronics is an American manufacturer of audio converters and digital audio interfaces, based in Santa Monica, CA. Today we will talk about a new microphone that the company has released and we’re pretty sure that many users will try it out.
It is good to know that back in 2014, Apogee Electronics has released its MiC 96k, which is an updated version of its compact USB microphone, which is able to handle up to 96kHz 24-bit analog-to-digital recording. The mentioned model has worked on Mac OS and iOS devices, but it seems that Apogee wants to expand its portfolio, as it released a new MiC 96k that functions on Windows devices.
It is good to know that the new device comes with the same designs, features and name as the previous microphone. The only change is that it now works on your Windows PC or Surface device.
In addition, the new version of Apogee’s MiC is also cheaper than its predecessor. The new microphone can be purchased for only $199. The downside is that it doesn’t function anymore with iOS or Mac OS, which means that if you are a fan of devices that run on the two mentioned operating systems, you will most likely not want to purchase it.
HINT: However, you can purchase a Lightning cable for $30 which, will allow you to use the MiC across Windows, iPad, Mac and iPhone.
It is good to know that when it comes to USB microphones, the ones manufactured by Blue are the most popular options. However, Apogee is also a good option, as both companies are releasing a line of audio gear for consumes and professionals. The MiC is also a good choice for a compact recording option that you can store it with ease in your backpack without wasting too much space with it.
This microphone can handle podcasting without any problems along with many other things that you will need it for. The new MiC is the third installment of the device, while the first one was released back in 2011 and the second one in 2014 (as we’ve mentioned above).
