Blue Announces Ember XLR Microphone for Professional Recording
Blue, a 20-year leading innovator in audio technology and design, today announced Ember, a premium, cardioid XLR condenser microphone designed for pristine capture of vocals and instruments. Ember is ideal for music applications like SoundCloud , capturing professional sound for YouTube video production, and live-streaming. Ember’s tight pickup pattern helps reduce room and background noise. Featuring premium components and precision design, Ember is perfect for on-camera applications.
Featuring a proprietary, hand-tuned custom condenser capsule, Ember delivers superbly clear, open, and detailed performance for recording or streaming a wide variety of voices and instruments. A tight cardioid pickup pattern focuses on the sound source directionally in front of the mic and minimizes room noise for a clean, up-front sound with excellent isolation. Ember’s streamlined form factor and compact side-address design is ideal for placement in tight spaces or limited on-screen real estate.
Custom-designed phantom power circuitry and a precise cardioid polar pattern ensure remarkably consistent frequency response with minimal noise for a rich, smooth vocal sound. Ember comes with a mount for any standard microphone stand and is also compatible with Blue’s S3 Shock suspension mount and Compass boom arm accessories. Ember will be available in February at authorized Blue Microphones dealers for the suggested retail price of $99.99. Ember is currently available for pre-order at select retailers.
