Bill Goldsmith – Internet Radio DJ
"Luckily I have MiC with me in the car wherever I go, so if something does come up and I have to pick up a line, all I have to do is pull out MiC from the glovebox, plug it into my iPhone and record it, and then I send it as an email."
“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. ”
“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 like MiC
“I’m not a microphone expert by any means, and as with most things musical it’s largely subjective anyway, but I thought MiC did a fantastic job recording my acoustic guitar.”
What else do you need?
“So far I’ve used this to record my classical guitar while I work on various style of African guitar playing. I use Garageband on my iPhone and MiC works great it. (and every other recording app) I’ve also used it to do some simple field recording of my band playing- also works well!The gain dial is simple to adjust. Just crank it up and then slowly dial it back until you stop seeing red.It’s compact but well built and sturdy.”
