Apogee Electronics MiC
Cardioid Condenser Microphone
The MiC is a small-diaphragm studio condenser microphone designed for use with Apple’s portable digital devices, such as the iPhone and iPad.
- Blue = connected to hardware, but not attached to any recording applications on the host device
- Dim green = Ready to record
- Bright green = “Audio level is present”
- Orange = nearly clipping
- Red = Audio overload (clipping)
The MiC’s circuit includes an analog preamp with 40dB of gain, and an analog-digital converter (ADC) that can operate at a maximum resolution of 24 bit, 48 kHz.
The MiC has no headphone jack; to monitor during recording, headphones must be attached to the host device.
- 0.5m 30-pin iOS cable
- 1m USB cable
- Lightning cable (included since Aug 1, 2013)
A small desktop tripod stand is also included in the box.
According to Apogee, the MiC is compatible with all Apple iPads, and with iPhones version 4 and newer.
As a Core Audio compatible device, it can be used with Pro Tools versions 9 and newer, via a USB input.
The MiC was discontinued after the release of the 96k version of the device; see the MiC 96k profile.
