Blue Snowball

After reading a LOT of reviews, and receiving a number of recommendations, I ordered the Blue Snowball. It arrived yesterday, and I haven’t had any time to play with it, because we had a friend visiting from out of town. However, a few initial impressions. It’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be, but lighter than I expected.

And the sound is just great. I recorded just a few seconds of audio, and then did a longer reading. The crispness of the plosives and sibilants was very impressive. I’m looking forward to recording something, and getting back into podcasting.

And it’s got a little switch on it that turns it from a one-sided mic to an omnidirectional mic. Still need to figure out which is which. But I think that means that it’ll make a better interview mic than what I had before.

Thanks, everyone, for the great recommendations. I think I picked the right mic. Stay tuned for some more podcasts, finally.
