Built-In Controls and Zero-Latency Monitoring

Built into the Spark Digital Lightning is a separate headphone jack, allowing you zero-latency monitoring while recording. There are also controls for volume, gain, and instant mute.

Plug and Play

The Spark Digital Lightning is completely plug-and-play, with no drivers to install. Simply plug it into your iOS device running a recording app and you're ready to go.

Works with Most Popular iOS Recording Apps

Spark Digital Lightning is instantly recognized for use with virtually any audio or video application, including all of the most popular iOS recording apps. To fully benefit from the quality Spark Digital Lightning offers, it's recommended to use a high-quality recording app such as GarageBand, Jammit, FiRe 2.0, Music Studio Lite, or StudioMini Recording Studio, since Apple's built-in Voice Memos app records at a lower bit rate.

Focus Control

The Focus Control provides two different usage modes: the Normal mode (off position) providing increased low frequency sensitivity for recordings with great impact and definition, along with the Focus mode (on position) for even greater clarity and detail. The Focus Control functions differently than a standard high-pass or low-pass filter--it changes the input driver of the capsule rather than the signal output of the microphone circuit. This avoids coloring or degrading the signal quality coming out of the Spark microphone like low or high pass filters can. Specifically, the Focus Control alters the voltage loading of the capsule, which alters the capsule's dynamic frequency response, changing the capsule's behavior in a way that's more nuanced than a standard filter acting on a microphone's output. The result is a change to Spark's frequency response curve as well as the dynamic properties of the capsule (response to transients), providing two different mic characteristics.

Spark Digital answers the call with the Blue Cloud Production Bundle, an exclusive offer included with each microphone that provides free access to production tools for easy organizing, storing and streaming of audio content across the web.

I have owned this mic for about 2 weeks or so, and I've been playing with it to get it tuned to the perfect gain. It works wonderfully! I absolutely love this mic!

I've heard of Blue Microphones in the past couple of years, but I never really needed a mic until now. I saw this one was fairly cheap and it connected to my iPhone-so I thought, "Its the perfect combination of portable and practicality!" I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase.

I would recommend this mic to anyone with an iPhone who needs it for portability, or for a great quality desktop mic!
