Podcaster Microphone: iRig Mic HD 2
As a podcaster, the sound of your voice represents you to the world. Yes, your content matters, but your standards are represented by the quality of your audio. Clear, clean sound invites your listeners to stay and listen to you; tinny, muffled, or distorted sound can annoy your listeners and drive them away. The microphone you select is the first step in presenting your audio persona. Do you want top notch sound for your listeners? Sure, you do! Here is a microphone which will capture your voice in digital HD quality and in the format suitable for modern studio production techniques.
The iRig Mic HD 2, manufactured by IK Multimedia, is known for its clean sound and excellent build quality. As a podcaster or field recording professional, you will like its broad, flat frequency response and ability to record in cardioid, stereo, and omni directional modes. Listening to a recording made on an iRig Mic HD 2 is almost like "being there in person."
An important specification, besides its audio quality is the iRig Mic HD 2 output format: up to 24 bit resolution at 96000 samples per second. That is important, as any modern studio will want audio in at least 24/96k. Such sonic detail is important for keeping processing artifacts to a minimum and having a high quality archive for future use. With 24/96k audio, you can do the noise reduction, EQ, and dynamics processing with confidence that the DSP will not add audible grunge to your voice or music content.
