New Media Gear 22: Blue Microphones Spark Digital Studio-Grade Condenser Microphone for Apple iPad and USB 2.0
I don’t often currently have the need to record high-quality audio to my iPad or iPhone, but I know a lot of podcasters who record to their mobile devices as a matter of course. The Spark would certainly add a level of quality to mobile recording while removing the need for mixing boards, phantom power and other encumbrances that make location recording difficult. The Spark plugs directly into the data connection of both older iPads using the 30-pin connector and also newer units with Apple’s Lightning Connector.
I have always liked Blue’s products, including a Blue Snowball that I currently own, and the Spark looks like it could be another great product.

Another great USB microphone from Blue. Like the Blue Snowball microphone mentioned earlier in the Gift Guide, this mic connects directly to the USB port on your computer — either Windows or Mac. The Yeti gives a full, rich sound and is compatible with all the typical New Media uses such as video conferencing, podcasting and recording voice or music. The Yeti is very popular with podcasters and live streamers and can often be seen in these productions. I think its classic styling, unlike the futuristic look of the Snowball make it more popular for video production. Its design harkens back to an earlier day of broadcasting.

[Tip] Beginning Voiceover artists should/must create their own shows and opportunities to showcase their talents.
For example, take my yearly reading of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol which I do with various friends. (Listen to past shows here)
Beginning voiceover artists could easily do this alone or in combination with their peers and create a showpiece and “reel” material for everyone involved.
