OVERVIEW

Spark creativity and record it with exceptional clarity.

Spark Digital is the world's first studio condenser microphone to offer both USB and iPad connectivity. Expanding on the professional and 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.

    Comments about Blue Spark Digital Condenser Mic with USB/iPad Connectivity:

    I bought this to be my all around home studio mic for use with garage band. The sound quality is great, especially considering the price. it is NOT a high end, professional quality mic, but it is maybe the best home studio mic I have found. It records close proximity, full room, vocals, acoustic and electric instruments all very well. I am quite happy with the purchase.
    I do have concerns about the USB cable connection. It seems (like most digital products these days), like it could break very easily. I would recommend disconnecting it every time when not in use, to avoid accidents. I also paid the small amount or so to get the Musicians friend warranty and think its worth it, no questions asked.
    If you want one mic to do it all, look no farther than this.
