Microphone manufacturer Blue has this week unveiled a new addition to their range of portable condenser microphones with the launch of the Blue Raspberry, which is compatible with PC, Mac and iOS devices and will be launching in the UK priced at £169.99.
Whether you are recording voice or instruments on your mobile or desktop computer the Blue Raspberry condenser microphone has been created to provide 24-bit studio quality sound using the companies patent-pending Internal Acoustic Diffuser (IAD) design. That “resembles treatments found in studios and concert halls”, says Blue.
