Rebirth of the cool

Finally, a USB mic that's not only easy to use, but sounds as good on your desktop as it does in a professional recording studio. Meet the Snowball; the world's first professional USB mic.

Whether you're recording a guitar at your kitchen table or a complete band in the studio, the Snowball can capture it with detail unheard of before in a USB mic.

Features

Works with iPad
Snowball and Snowflake can be used to record on iPad via Apple's camera connection kit (USB-to-30-pin) or the Lightning to USB camera adapter! Using these adapters, you can get Blue’s studio-quality audio on your iPad with any recording app, including GarageBand

Technology
The Snowball is a direct plug n' play mic that connects to either a Mac or PC - no additional software is needed. With its dual capsule design and unique three-pattern switch (cardioid, cardioid with -10dB pad and omni), the Snowball can handle everything from soft vocals to the loudest garage band - and it's ideal for podcasting.
