The Snowball iCE USB Microphone from Blue Microphones is an affordable and easy-to-use mic. It works just fine at all levels, whether you’re using it in a professional recording studio to score an album, or recording a video or audio track at home in your PJs for uploading on Youtube or SoundCloud. It’s a plug-and-play device for both the PC and Mac, and you won’t need any drivers. It comes with the USB cable and a tripod-like adjustable desktop stand so that you can position it properly. The condenser capsule with cardioid pattern ensures you get crystal clear sound no matter where you’re using the Snowball iCE. You can also hook it with your iPad if you download a recording app and use the Apple camera connection kit.
