If you’ve often wondered just how to get a vocal recording to sit perfectly in the mix, the answer is likely to be compression. The Apogee HypeMiC USB microphone is an all-in-one vocal solution that already comes with integrated analogue compression, alongside impeccable Apogee quality. Three compression modes are controlled by a fitted three-way switch and although it sounds simple, this switch offers a setting that’s guaranteed to fatten up the sound of every thinkable instrument or vocal performance. It’s this and the maximum resolution of 24bit/96 KHz that makes the HypeMiC so capable of producing studio-quality recordings. The included tabletop-stand, pop-shield and case also help.
