Press Release from Blue
Blue Microphones announces the first USB microphone designed
for professional recording applications. Dubbed the Snowball, the mic is an extension of Blue’s popular line of
spherical mics that includes the original Ball, the world’s first phantom-powered dynamic; the 8-Ball condenser
mic; and the newly shipping Kickball, Blue’s new big bass dynamic.
Designed for desktop recording applications, the Snowball incorporates Blue’s exceptional styling with high quality,
versatility and ease of use. The mic’s universal driver and plug & play USB compatibility make recording into your laptop
or DAW quick and easy, while its dual capsule design and three-position switch dial in the desired sound for many
The Snowball’s versatility is achieved by its unique dual-capsule design, with one capsule tailored for vocals and the
other for instruments. A three position switch on the back of the mic lets you change between the capsules. The first
position offers the end user a robust vocal sound, the second position delivers an open, airy detailed sound and the third
position is a unique combination of both capsules, which allows for the recording of loud sound sources. The result
makes Snowball a multi-talented recording tool — the first USB mic designed and engineered by people who know
Snowball will be available in Q2 of 2005 for $139.00 MSRP.
