I’m trying to keep the gift ideas in a decent price range so I’m featuring the Icicle by Blue. At $60, this is the perfect solution for someone who wants to run a microphone directly into your PC via USB. This is ideal for podcasting, voiceover work, or just to mic a single instrument. Setup is extremely simple. No special drivers needed, just plug it into a USB port and start creating. This is probably one of the best USB Preamps on the market and can work with Phantom Power as well. It even looks like it would…. taste…. Bryan, don’t bite it. Remember what happened with Skullcandy headphone. They did not taste like…. CRUUUUNCH… FFFFFFFFFFFFFFAAARM Animals that hurt!! I’ll let Blue Mics finish this post out while I look for a dentist to fix this.
The Icicle is Blue’s new stylish USB converter and mic preamp combo that allows you to connect any XLR microphone directly into your computer via USB! The Icicle features a studio quality microphone preamp, 48V phantom power, fully balanced low noise front end, analog gain control, and driverless operation. Setup is a snap!
The Icicle works with both dynamic and condenser microphones, providing high quality and hassle-free connectivity with Mac or PC. Whether you’re using a microphone for digital recording, podcasting, voice messaging, or voice recognition applications, the Icicle is the quick and easy way to get connected.
