Portable Recorder for iPod


Blue Microphones has announced the second generation Mikey, portable recorder for iPod and iPod touch. Here's what they have to say about it...
Building upon the award-winning audio technology developed for the original Mikey, the second generation portable mic is designed for iPod and iPod touch, featuring improved circuitry for superior recording and enhanced new features.
"The second generation Mikey is a natural next step for Blue as we continue to expand our consumer audio line to include enhanced portable recording," said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones "Blue is dedicated to providing the highest-quality portable audio on the market and the next generation Mikey is a testament to that standard."
Like the original, Mikey 2G features two custom-tuned Blue capsules for professional-quality stereo recording capabilities. To accompany its sleek new design, Mikey features an improved acoustic circuit that allows for higher quality recordings of high-volume events, like concerts. Mikey also now boasts a 3.5mm line-input for direct recording of other sound sources such as a guitar or mixer along with a USB pass-thru connection.
With an updated case design, the second generation Mikey is compatible with most protective cases and now features a 230-degree range of adjustability with seven detent positions for perfect positioning. Additionally, the new Mikey comes with a soft carrying pouch for convenient protection and portability. This second generation Mikey is compatible with iPod 5G; iPod Classic, iPod Nano 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G and iPod touch 1G, 2G, 3G.
To complete the mobile audio experience, Blue introduces Blue FiRe, a free, high-fidelity field recording app for iPhone and iPod touch that is now available from the App Store. Developed in partnership with Audiofile Engineering, the Blue FiRe App is optimized for the second generation Mikey - enabling users to have a complete, high-quality mobile recording experience.
