While at CES, Blue Microphones announced the Nessie adaptive USB Mic. The Nessie “takes the fear out of great recording by instantly delivering studio-enhanced sound for desktop recording of vocals, instruments, voiceovers and more”.
The Nessie is designed to “combat the most common pitfalls of recording”. To achieve that end the Nessie automatically adapts to each recording and applies professional studio processing. It also includes a built-in pop filter and an internal shock mount. The combination is designed to produce “expertly finished sound, without the need for additional mixing or editing”. Ultimately the Nessie is designed to professionally enhance audio and create polished music demos, podcasts, interviews and YouTube videos.
The Nessie offers three recording modes and has a single custom-tuned condenser capsule with a cardioid pattern.
A zero-latency headphone output allows for direct monitoring and the microphone also features a headphone volume and instant mute button. For optimal positioning, the Nessie’s head is adjustable thanks to serpentine flexibility. The Nessie is plug-and-play compatible via USB with both PC and Mac and requires no additional drivers. You can also use the Nessie with an iPad via Apple’s 30-pin to USB or Lighting to USB camera adapters.
