introduces us to the Blue Microphones Mikey Digital:
The Mikey Digital connects to the base of your iOS device, providing go-anywhere recording with “point and shoot” simplicity. Sweetwater musicians dig the multi-angle positioning, which makes it easier to focus on your sound source. Capture song ideas on the go, record interviews at a moment’s notice, or even connect your guitar to the auto-sensing 1/8″ input with an adapter to play with your favorite guitar apps! No matter how you use it, you’ll love the high-quality recordings you can make with the Blue Mikey Digital iOS interface.
Blue Mikey Digital iOS Lightning Interface Features at a Glance:
Stereo condenser microphone and interface for Lightning-equipped iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad
Works with most recording/music apps
Auto-sensing 1/8″ input for guitars, external microphones, or any line-level signal
Three-position mic gain switch helps find the right level for any environment
230-degree rotating design allows you to fine-tune the mic position, and makes it easy to position on a flat surface (angling the Mikey Digital lets it “stand” on a tabletop)
Comes with a soft carrying pouch
What’s cool about this is, it is a microphone, but also accepts a line level signal directly into your iPhone/iPad without using the built-in preamps. It costs $100.
