Apogee, one of the leading audio interface companies in the business, has just released its most affordable option for Mac yet. The new ONE for Mac is very much based on the company’s small-footprint ONE interfaces, but this time with a more focused approach just for Mac users. While you wont get the dual functionality of the previous generation iOS/Mac options, the new interface also won’t reach into your pocket quite as deep.

Since the mid-80s, Apogee has been creating award-winning audio-to-digital converters and interfaces for some of the best recording studios on the planet. So when it decided to bring its expertise to the portable production world some years ago, it was an exciting proposition for producers everywhere. Back in 2011 it introduced us to the first of its all-in-one USB microphone/interface hybrids and has steadily made top ten lists ever since. The once current generation Apogee MiC 96k for iOS, Mac, and Windows devices has made our top picks lists for a while now, but it’s time for a new player to enter the fray.
Today, Apogee is announcing the brand new MiC+ for iPad, iPhone, Mac, and PC, along with the official price and release date… expand full story

Apogee has been one of the top names in digital audio in the music production world for years. It successfully jumped into the mobile game with its iOS friendly interfaces among other things a few years back, and recently launched the second generation MiC+ USB/Lightning Microphone. Apogee rarely opts for affordability over quality, but we had to give it a run for its money anyway.
We have now had a chance to go hands-on with the company’s latest portable mic over the last little while. Apogee has certainly stepped its game up here, but is it still worth the world-class price tag? Head below for our full review… expand full story

Recording on iPhone and iPad has never been so exciting. With the plethora of software in combination with the near endless list of hardware options out there, it is easier than ever to record full songs, podcasts and even soundtracks directly to a mobile Apple device. We have always been big fans of what IK Multimedia has done in the space and companies like Apogee and Focusrite continue to turn out high-quality recording solutions for mobile producers.
We thought it would be a great time, ahead of the busy holiday season, to break down some of the best options out there for 2017. Down below you’ll find our top picks for the best Lightning iOS Interfaces in various price ranges to keep the tape rolling on all your mobile masterpieces… expand full story
My desk setup is pretty simple and not the exactly the neatest, most cable-free one you’ll find (I won’t try to compete with the YouTubers on cable management), but what I lack there I tried to make up for with an insane and borderline ridiculous amount of screen real estate. Allow me to introduce my dual 38-inch widescreen monitor setup…

Having a nice mic for your Mac/computer isn’t a necessity for everyone, but it can come in handy for anyone recording voice-overs, song demos or even those that find themselves knee deep in video conference calls. There’s nothing worse than horrible audio during a FaceTime call with a client/colleague.
Personally, I need a mic for all of these reasons (and more), so I thought it was time to take a look at some of the best options and how to most intelligently spend my money. Some mics are insanely expensive and are certainly going to be overkill for your weekly podcasts and staff meetings. Others will suffice for live streaming and things of that nature, but just aren’t going to cut it when it comes to voice-overs and song recording. As a general rule of thumb, voice work and songs are going to require a more expensive, higher quality mic, than those of us just using them for other more casual reasons.
Needless to say, we will be focusing on the much more affordable USB mics, as opposed to your typical, pro analog options. Although we are going to go over some options for those looking to step it up a notch as well:
Founded in the mid 1920’s, Beyerdynamic has been producing high-quality audio gear out of Germany for many years. As of late, it is best known for its over-ear studio headphones that easily rank among our favorites in the price range. But today the company is introducing a new product in an audio category the it is not normally associated with. expand full story
