MiC is a premium digital converter featuring PureDIGITAL technology which delivers your voice or acoustic instruments true tone to your iPad, iPhone or Mac without compromise. You will notice the sonic difference between MiC and other similar products immediately. It’s easy to tell if MiC is connected properly by the status LED on the front of MiC. If it’s green, you are ready to record and the light becomes your input level indicator. If it turns red, you are rockin' the MiC too hard and need to turn your level down with the input gain control knob. MiC features an input gain control knob. This rotary style wheel is conveniently located on the side of MiC for easy thumb access. With the level indication LED as your guide, the gain control knob allows you to fine tune for the perfect level without having to look at software.

I'm not a microphone expert by any means, and as with most things musical it's largely subjective anyway, but I thought MiC did a fantastic job recording my acoustic guitar. There is one peculiar issue though. When I plug the MiC into my iPhone 4S the Wi-Fi and cellular network connections no longer work. Everything goes back to normal when you unplug the MiC, but this means MiC is unusable with Skype or any other app that requires an internet connection. It's not a big deal for me, but it is something to be aware of. I believe a Line 6 product I had did the same thing, so I'm not sure it's anything Apogee can fix themselves. The iPad 2 is not affected. MiC comes with a tiny stand that looks like one of those pocket-sized camera tripods. It worked great on my coffee table for recording acoustic guitar. MiC comes with two cables, one for iOS devices and another for connecting to a Mac. The cable plugs very securely into the iPad and iPhone, something I'm very particular about. There's nothing worse than a cable that unplugs with the slightest nudge or tug. I'm very happy with MiC and all of my other Apogee products. They're made in the USA too!

Wonderful! I've owned 3 SSL rooms in N Hollywood so I know a little about recording and this product is just great! East to work and sounds amazing with no noticeable latency! All my small firewire and usb boxes I never use because of the delay issues! The Jam works great also. If you travel and want something portable this is really your way to go! I use this with my macbook pro for pro tools, logic, and garage band. It sounds better than other stuff too!

I thought I would save money by buying the apogee MiC on amazon thinking all the cables and mic holster adapter would be included. Instead I had to make another order for the 8 pin lightning cable and a mic adapter for my mic stand. In total I spent $199.99 for the base product (Apogee Mic) and then additional order of 29.99 and 19.99 for the items that already come as a package at the apple store which retails for $229.99. I wish the apogee mic description was more clear Or at least let the customer know that iPhone 5 or iPad mini 4 Gen and newer need the extra 8pin cable and for those who opt to use on a stand need to purchase the adapter. It's only a marginal difference but it's disappointing when opening a package and the accessories needed aren't included. I guess I will have to read description three times over when it comes to purchasing these type of items. Apogee Mic and accessories work great though.

Working in the Recording Business for years, I was really impressed with this microphone. It gives you outstanding quality for mobile recording. It' works great with Garage Band (Both ipod and ipad), and Runs smoothly with Ableton Live with a Macbook Pro. It saves the trouble of having a phantom powered mic (and traveling with pre-amps or audio interfaces). ¡Great Product!

First let me say I am a musician not a sound engineer. I had originally planned on investing a much larger sum of cash into a home recording rig, that would have included mics, preamps ,interfaces the whole works, but i ultimately decided to go with the apogee mic and jam. Why? Because These tools are so user friendly that they put far less barriers between you and creating quality sounding recordings. Had i went the alternative route I would have likely invested much more time in learning new software and settings for the equipment before I got anything of value out. With these tools I plugged and played and had a decent sounding recording the first day. Will you get professional studio quality recording? Maybe not,but it will be damn close for a fraction of the price and will allow you to focus more on what is really important......the music.

This microphone has great quality (to my non-professional ears) and amazing ease of use. It works with no installation on my MacBook and iPhone. I'm very satisfied. The only shortcoming is, as in any other microphone, the air noise it gets. For a better quality you can adjust the 'Gain' scroller a little down. Plus, I used a mic cover and it turned out just great. It's perfect for broadcasting, and I guess it's even good for singing and music recording.

Delivers all the features as promised. I'm not a sound geek but I easily set the MiC up on my iPhone 4S and got the results I expected.

The Apogee MiC is awesome. It is extremely small and portable and the build quality is great. It is so simple to use as it does not require external power. You can even mount it on a mic stand to manuever it into the position that you want it. The sound quality is superb; I've used it to record acoustic guitar and vocals. I would highly recommend this product... it is very reasonably priced and great for travel and recording on the go with your iPad/Macbook.
