"When recording my trumpet with MiC straight into my laptop, the quality was just as good as when using a larger condenser mic with Duet 2. I loved the way MiC captured the high end frequencies of my trumpet as well as the dynamics and musicality of the phrase without sounding boxey, thin or digital. Great mic pre, and converter - I would expect nothing less from Apogee. This is my new mobile recording chain. Thanks!"
"Apogee is a company about the creative process. They get what musicians, song writers and producers need as far as the gear required to further their craft and art. What is that gear? Stream-lined innovative recording tools. The products in Apogee's line are simplistic in user-functionality while being complex in their vast array of utilizations. When it's time for a musician to get into song writing, the last thing one needs is an overly difficult and convoluted peripheral that stifles creativity and clutters progress. Apogee understands this and answers back with their world-class devices that seamlessly integrate ease-of-use, state-of-the-art technology, multi-functionality, and sleek aesthetics. "

"I love the MiC! I'm on-the-go as a singer/songwriter and inspiration can hit me at anytime anywhere. With my MiC, whether I'm in a recording studio or an airport, I can get a professional quality recording instantly. The MiC has become an integral part of my recording set up and I never leave home without it."
The Bachelor, The Bachelorette
"I've used the Apogee MiC several times now for Bachelor related voice overs. The MiC is easy to use, efficient, and studio quality. It's now on the road with me everywhere I go."
Maroon 5, Young Money/Cash Money Recording Artist
"When you're on the road as much as I am, traveling as light as possible is always the goal. Using the ONE as well as the MiC accomplishes that while preserving the quality to continue to create while on the move. I've been using it for so much of my recent work!"
White Lion, Freak of Nature
"I have known Apogee since the 1990s when we spent entirely too much money on making records with White Lion. There was not a top studio anywhere that did not have them as converters. I was now re-introduced to the brand and instantly fell in love with their iOS devices MiC and JAM. I ended up using them all over my new album "My Revolution" and could not believe how good they sound and how easy it is to use them. Many times, my producer and I would look at each other and say: "Let's keep the GarageBand track" and often laugh about how hard it used to be to make records. Apogee: you have done it again. A new generation of musicians will grow up with your gear and even old warhorses like me are learning to re-invent the wheel with the help of your tools. Thanks for helping to keep Rock & Roll alive!"
"This MiC is amazing! The clarity is great, the sound is full...We've worked with a bunch of different studio mics, some $10,000 mics, and the Apogee MiC is just as good as those. The beauty of it is you can take it on the go, so you aren't just confined to a studio. Wherever we are, when we're out on the road, we can always just pull up the MiC and get to work. WE LOVE THIS MIC"

"I was in a hotel room in NYC and needed to do a quick demo on my laptop for a pretty big pop artist that I work with.. Immediately after record enabling the track, I heard it picking up the entire room.. it was so sensitive and had such broad dynamic range... It kind of blew me away. I recorded some acoustic guitars up close with MIC that ended up sounding so good that we decided to keep them..they'll be used on the finished record.
Suddenly I realized - all I need is MiC, a set of headphones and my laptop and I'm good to go. I'm really psyched about this... I would have paid double what I paid, which I thought was already a steal. I guess what I'm saying is thanks Apogee for constantly reinventing the game and making products that are incredible, useful and most importantly, sound amazing."
Tegan and Sara, Kathryn Calder
"I had a song together using MiC and JAM on my iPad in probably about 5 minutes. I had put together a couple tracks. It's remarkably easy to use and the sound quality is stunning considering the size and just the idea of recording onto your iPad."
Internet Radio DJ
"I've used the same setup for years when recording voice breaks for Radio Paradise -- an ElecroVoice RE-20 mic + an Apogee MiniMe ADC. It's a great-sounding setup, but a bit bulky. I was looking for something a bit more portable to pair with my Macbook Pro when I'm working away from home base, so I decided to give the Apogee MiC a try. I was absolutely blown away by the MiC's sound quality. It cost about 1/10 of what my old setup did, and it sounds so much better that I'm now using it full time. A truly amazing product."
