OVERVIEW

Spark USB microphone now with Lightning cable.

Spark Digital is one of the world's first studio condensers to offer both USB and iPad connectivity. Expanding on the professional sound of Blue's Spark XLR studio microphone, Spark Digital features the same studio-grade condenser capsule and hand-tuned components for high-fidelity recording and consistence performance in any situation- vocals, drums, piano, speech, location recording and more.

Spark Digital also includes the Focus Control, providing two different sonic options in one mic at the push of a button. Complete with an adjustable desk stand and built-in shockmount, Spark Digital also includes Y-cables for each platform with a headphone jack for zero-latency realtime monitoring. With a full range of recording capabilities, Spark Digital turns your iPad into a true mobile studio.

Focus Control Expanded
The Focus Control provides two different usage modes: the Normal mode (off position) providing increased low frequency sensitivity for recordings with great impact and definition, along with the Focus mode (on position) for even greater clarity and detail.

The Focus Control functions differently than a standard high-pass or low-pass filter- it changes the input driver of the capsule rather than the signal output of the microphone circuit. This avoids coloring or degrading the signal quality coming out of the Spark microphone like low or high pass filters can. Specifically, the Focus Control alters the voltage loading of the capsule, which alters the capsule's dynamic frequency response, changing the capsule's behavior in a way that's more nuanced than a standard filter acting on a microphone's output. The result is a change to Spark's frequency response curve as well as the dynamic properties of the capsule (response to transients), providing two different mic characteristics.

        got this to use for recording on garage band. took a little experimentation, but makes pretty decent recordings after figuring out levels. got a restock so I think it's a very good mic for the price I paid.

        This mic is very acurate for sound. I love it. I'm new to recording, but I watched many video reviews and saw the value. I bought two from Musicians friend. Love it. Thanks

        Great Product, fragile construction

        Comments about BLUE Spark Digital with Lightning Connector:

        Can't say enough about how easy this mic is to plug into a mac, iphone, or ipad and just go. I love that connectivity. Sounds great too, although it's a condensor mic so it picks up on EVERY little sound around you and even far away from you. In a quiet, controlled setting, this mic is awesome. However, the mic screws into the base extremely delicately, so it's way too easy to strip the male or female connections. So word of caution: take your time screwing the mic into the base, or you will have stripped out threads.

        Comments about BLUE Spark Digital with Lightning Connector:

        I purchased this on a stupid deal of the day. It was a great deal! I would have been a good deal at full price. I normally use very high end mics in my studio and this was just something to use when I travel on my Ipad. It's really too clean and full sounding to be in that class. But I'm not complaining that my Ipad mic sounds this clean. Sounds great on vocals and acoustic guitar. I haven't tried it in front of a bass cabinet yet or on and electric guitar cabinet but I think most people doing ios recording will plug in direct. The spark is really well built so far as I can tell. pretty heavy for it's size. I have nothing negative to say about it. It just sounds great. I use it with my windows laptop too. so far so good.

        Comments about BLUE Spark Digital with Lightning Connector:

        I got this as a "Stupid Deal Of The Day". First, it was described as a restock. I could find nothing than indicated the package had ever been opened before. So, fantastic start! What I was looking for was something plug-n-play for my iPhone or iPad so I could shoot short videos of drum gear to demo them for selling online. This mic does a great job at capturing the basic acoustic sounds of drums and cymbals using just the video record function on my iPhone. The sound is clear, not distorted, and represents the gear very well. Is it a studio caliber mic? No. But to serve my particular need it is perfect!
