Samson Go Mic Connect
Just when I had thought I’d seen it all in compact microphones for use with iPods, iPads and other ‘smart’ devices, Samson sent me the Go Mic Connect, which puts all of that aside and goes back to addressing the computer user once again. Thank you Samson, let’s get back to recording on our laptop with as little trouble as possible, if it is not too much to ask. That is exactly what the Go Mic Connect is all about. For those of you not wanting to use an iOS or Android device to record your song writing and podcast ventures, then here is an add-on microphone specifically designed for you.
Sennheiser MKE2 Clipmic Digital
There are certainly plenty of options on the market these days for recording into your iPhone or iPad. With such a mass of products, it is hard to know where to start and if some of them actually offer a better quality of audio capture to the actual in-built microphones on the device itself. This is where Sennheiser did it right. They took the time and effort to ensure that when they entered to iOS market, they were prepared with a product that was indeed of the quality we all expect from them. So, the Sennheiser ClipMic Digital is now here and ready to be heard.
METEORITE USB CONDENSER MICROPHONE
It has been a number of years since I first road tested the Meteor by Samson, and since then they have developed their products for a range of uses, including expanding their home recording options for all budgets. So, it was with a familiar feeling when I unboxed the new Samson Meteorite USB microphone this month in order to give it a run. Given the similar name, I assumed it would just be a smaller version of the old model, but there were a few more differences than that.
ZOOM H6 PORTABLE RECORDER
Zoom have become renowned for their handy recorder range, probably most due to the H4N, which has been a stalwart of portable recording for many years. Alas, being at the top could never last. Especially when Zoom themselves have brought out a device like the H6. This unit kicks any competition out of the park. If you want a handheld recorder that does it all, you just about have to own the H6.
