Skipper Wise, President and Co-Founder of Blue Microphones told Sonicstate, â€œIn addition to its dual capsule design, these new applets add to the Snowballâ€™s ability to record just about any source you put in front of it. And with ever expanding distribution of the mic, more computer users will have access to this high quality audio tool.â€�
Two new free firmware applets for the Snowball are available for download. They let you adjust gain levels on a Mac or PC for greater control in recording loud or soft sources. The low gain applet is for loud sounds (like drums, electric guitars, louder singing) while the high gain applet is for quieter sounds like speech, podcasting, internet telephony, or recording sounds from a distance. You can switch back and forth between them as often as you need.
