Designed for desktop recording applications, the Snowball incorporates Blue’s exceptional styling with high quality, versatility and ease of use. The mic’s universal driver and plug and play USB compatibility make recording into your laptop or DAW quick and easy, while its dual capsule design and three-position switch dial in the desired sound for many applications.
The Snowball’s versatility is achieved by its unique dual-capsule design, with one capsule tailored for vocals and the other for instruments. The three position switch on the back of the mic lets you change between the capsules. The first position activates the cardioid pattern capsule with a neutral sonic signature, the second position activates the cardioid capsule with a 10dB pad, and the third position activates the omni-directional capsule with a brighter overall sound. The result makes Snowball a multi-talented recording tool – the first USB mic designed and engineered by people who know sound. The Snowball is available in musical instrument stores for $155 MSRP and is available in consumer electronics stores with accessory pack (desktop stand and cable) for $159.
