Nessie takes the fear out of great recording by instantly delivering studio-enhanced sound for desktop recording of vocals, instruments, voiceovers and more.
“You know how you can set a point-and-shoot camera to Auto Mode and it'll do a lot of the tweaking for you to get the best shot possible? Wouldn't it be cool if you could do that for audio? Well, the new Nessie is Blue's first shot at a mic with Auto Mode... It's for people who want their fast recordings to sound better and they want it idiot-proofed. Blue's mics typically sound terrific for the money, so we've got high-hopes for this adorable little guy.”
Designed to combat the most common pitfalls of recording, Nessie automatically adapts to whatever you’re recording, applying professional studio processing combined with a built-in pop filter and internal shockmount, to produce expertly finished sound, without the need for additional mixing or editing. Just as the latest point-and-shoot cameras will reduce redeye and automatically adjust focus and exposure for improved photos, Nessie professionally enhances audio so that you get polished music demos, podcasts, interviews, YouTube broadcasts and more, instantly!
The built-in, studio-grade pop filter and shockmount reduce harsh plosives and disruptive rumbling and vibrations, while the adaptive processing, including EQ, de-esser and level control, automatically smoothes and refines your audio in real time.
No matter what you want to record, Nessie takes the guesswork out of great recording!
Nessie’s three flexible recording modes are optimized for richer vocals, more detailed instruments or an option for raw audio for manual post-production editing. Nessie employs a single custom-tuned condenser capsule with a cardioid pattern.
Nessie also features a zero-latency headphone output for direct monitoring, which is critical for eliminating distracting delay, while headphone volume and instant mute are located directly on the microphone. For optimal positioning, Nessie’s head adjusts with serpentine flexibility. Nessie is plug-and-play compatible via USB with both PC and Mac with driverless installation. For mobile recording, you can connect Nessie to iPad using Apple’s camera adapters (30-pin to USB or Lighting to USB) and a powered USB hub, both sold separately.
