To better serve you and to show I’m not worried about post count, I’m going to combine not one (how could you combine one) SHUT UP! Not one but TWO press releases in one. Plus I don’t sell ad space too, making this site even more of a reason to read daily because I’m not tied to the man and can say anything I want and openly throw my opinion around like it means something.
My very first studio mic was a CAD and I used the crap out of that thing until I had a very unfortunate “field recording” accident involving a duck who apparently didn’t want to be recorded and a pond. WHY Mr Quackers?!!! This mic actually has me interested because of its size. It looks like a USB stick.
The U9 plugs directly into computers with a headphone out for playback monitoring and Skype. Its omnidirectional condenser capsule swivels 180 degrees for convenient positioning while delivering crisp, articulate audio. The LED indicates when the mic is active.
The only drawback is when I’m recording one of those passionate vocal tracks on my power ballad album, I’m either having to lean over the USB port on my computer during the “intimate parts” or get an extender cable and hold it in my hand like a 70’s game show host. Wait, HOW is that a drawback. I used to always build little lego Bob Barker mics and make my brother do the showcase showdown. He always won dog poop.
So not only do we have a very portable mic, we also have two very affordable sets of headphones from CAD as well.
