OVERVIEW

Adaptive USB microphone for fearless recording.

Nessie is a intelligent desktop USB recording microphone with adaptive technology that instantly delivers studio-enhanced sound for recording vocals, instruments, voiceovers, and more.

Designed to combat the most common pitfalls of recording, Nessie automatically adapts to whatever you're recording, applying professional studio processing combined with a built-in pop filter and internal shockmount, to produce expertly finished sound, without the need for additional mixing or editing. Nessie professionally enhances audio so that you get polished music demos, podcasts, interviews, YouTube broadcasts and more, instantly!

The built-in, studio-grade pop filter and shockmount reduce harsh plosives and disruptive rumbling and vibrations, while the adaptive processing, including EQ, de-esser and level control, automatically smoothes and refines your audio in real time.

Nessie's three flexible recording modes are optimized for richer vocals, more detailed instruments or an option for raw audio for manual post-production editing. Nessie employs a single custom-tuned condenser capsule with a cardioid pattern.

Nessie also features a zero-latency headphone output for direct monitoring, which is critical for eliminating distracting delay, while headphone volume and instant mute are located directly on the microphone. For optimal positioning, Nessie's head adjusts with serpentine flexibility. Nessie is plug-and-play compatible via USB with both PC and Mac with driverless installation. For mobile recording, you can connect Nessie to iPad using Apple's camera adapters (30-pin to USB or Lighting to USB) and a powered USB hub, both sold separately.

  • Custom-tuned cardioid condenser capsule

  • Internal shockmount

Comments about BLUE Nessie Adaptive USB Microphone:

I bought this as an upgrade to my current mic which is a Logitech G230 Headset, don't get me wrong because it was better because the G230 has sooo much static, but this mic has a (built-in shock mount and pop filter) but they are the worst....it picks up even the slightest of vibrations from anything and sounds like a helicopter taking off. I am not even close to satisfied. I am going to be sending it back here within the next 2 days.

Perfect Solution!

Comments about BLUE Nessie Adaptive USB Microphone:

I've been creating commercial style video announcements for years for my church. I used to use a Pro-Tools MBox along with an extra mic stand and pop filter. The setup was quite cumbersome and expensive. Now with this mic I don't need any of that equipment and the USB connection allows me to use free audio editing software. My previous setup was very expensive and required all that equipment to take with me for portable recording uses. Now I can get the same quality with far less hassle for 1/5 of the price! Way to go Blue!
