Comments about Apogee MiC 96k Lightning:

I bought this to be able to make basic multitrack recordings at home. The sound quality is pretty darn good. I'm not a sound engineer or anything. As a singer/songwriter, it gets the job done for putting together basic demos of new songs.
The only bummer is that it's only Apple compatible. I can't use it for Google Video Chat on my laptop. So far I've only used it with Garage Band. I'm not sure what other programs it might work with.


Really couldn't be more satisfied
