"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. ”

Butch Walker - Artist, Songwriter, Producer

Recent Projects: "The Spade", Avril Lavigne, Pink, Train, Gavin DeGraw
“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”

Radioworld - Apogee MiC 96k Review

"Here’s the quick read: If you are in radio and you have a Mac computer, iPad or iPhone, get one of these now."

ProAudio Review - USB Microphones featuring Apogee MiC

“As we set up and tried out different mics, this was the first one that made me smile. The Apogee was clear and bright and not overdriven, thanks to the gain pot. I was impressed at how it handled the high SPLs”

Recording Magazine - Pocket-sized interfaces with Apogee power

"The guitar’s sound was faithfully reproduced. I was especially impressed with the third track; it seems like MiC really liked the sweet sound of a softly fingerpicked figure."

Customer Reviews

Astonishing Simplicity, Phenomenal Quality


“I have a great home recording setup with very nice pres, converters, mics, etc. And the Apogee MiC is never going to match the quality of my full rig. But for years I have been frustrated at not having a simple-to-use, decent-sound-quality setup for creative purposes (laying down scratch tracks, song writing ideas, etc.) Enter the MiC. A good creative tool, at the very least, needs to get out of the way of the process, if not enhance it. It needs to be invisible or elevate without adding complication. It needs to be immediately accessible in any circumstance. The MiC is just this very thing, and I am extraordinarily pleased with the results. This is a beautiful product, and it yields beautiful results with astonishing ease. It simplifies my workflow and enhances the outcome. Everyone who uses their phone as a part of their songwriting kit should own one of these. It’s that good.”

From Sweetwater

So simple


“After years of attaching the mic to the mic power box to the pre amp to the computer, it feels like cheating that this mic setup is so simple. Plug and play! Great sensitivity, great price. I’m really happy with this mic.”

From Sweetwater

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.”
