Blue Microphones has been working hard on the first professional grade microphone for the computer. The Snowball is a USB microphone designed for a wide range of studio set, desktop and workspace audio recordings. This plug-n-play mic uses a dual capsule design and three pattern switch (cardioid, cardioid with 10dB pad and omni) to capture everything from soft vocals to the loudest bang.
The front capsule is designed to “hear” what is right in front of at as a fixed pattern and the rear capsule is designed to “hear” all sound around it to generate a brighter sound. Although the Snowball was not engineered specifically for Podcasting, it’s probably the best microphone solution for just that.
