USB mic with headphone output and studio quality compression.

Ever wonder how your favorite recordings seem to leap from the speaker, with vocals that magically float above even a dense background track? That’s compression. HypeMiC's patented studio-quality, easy-to-use analog compression brings the magic to your vocals, voice overs, instruments, percussion and podcasts—anything you record. With HypeMiC and your iPhone or computer, you can make amazing recordings on the go.

Raise Your Voice With HypeMiC

HypeMiC’s unique analog compression enhances vocals like no other microphone. The three compression settings available in HypeMiC give you a truly balanced and "mixed" recording, reducing the need for extensive processing and mixing. Capturing your perfect take has never been easier.

HypeMiC brings a new level of smoothness and warmth to acoustic instrument recording. Varying compression levels allow you to capture the fullest tone of your instrument without compromise. Built for high SPL levels, HypeMiC provides greater clarity and detail when recording loud acoustic instruments from drums to horns to choirs.

Voice & Streaming
Ideal for live streaming, podcasts, broadcasts and voice overs, HypeMiC balances audio dynamics for greater clarity resulting in better "broadcast-ready" recordings. HypeMiC is compatible with any Mac/PC and iOS app that allows you to select an audio device, so you're never without a pro studio when you are on the go.

Specialty Recording
HypeMiC is an awesome way to introduce new sounds into your recordings and mixes. You can send audio out of the HypeMiC stereo output into a mixer, audio interface and standalone recorder to capture the unique and bold sound of HypeMiC's compression settings.

Compression Settings

The minimal amount of compression, great for shaping the vocals and instruments in your music recordings.
Great for podcasts, interviews and streaming when you want to squeeze a little more pop out of your voice.
Great for voice recording when you really want to smash it for that big broadcast sound.

Try all settings with any source and adjust to your taste. Set your level before you select your compression setting and remember that compression will accentuate any noise that’s around you while you are recording.
