It may seem like a toy at first glance, but the Blue Microphones Snowball is a true condenser microphone designed for desktop recording. It has a frequency response of 40Hz to 18kHz making it viable for podcasting and vocal recording. The -10dB pad allows it to handle louder sources like musical instruments, expanding the use of the mic into music recording territory. The mic also features two pickup patterns for further flexibility. Finally, this mic is bundled with PreSonus Studio One Artist software, which allows for out-of-the-box recording and production.
