Capture a Variety of Sources
Snowball is the perfect microphone for computer recording and streaming. It gives you the flexibility and versatility to capture all sorts of projects in stunning sound quality. You get three pickup settings—cardioid, omni, and cardioid with -10 dB pad—to accommodate any recording situation.
- CARDIOID MODE: Perfect for vocal performances, voice-overs, podcasts and instruments. Cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone, delivering rich, full-bodied sound.
- OMNIDIRECTIONAL MODE: Picks up sound equally from all around the mic. It’s best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of "being there"—like recording a band's live performance, a multi-person podcast or a conference call.
- CARDIOID WITH -10DB PAD: Dealing with an especially loud sound source? This setting reduces mic sensitivity so even the loudest instruments or vocalists come in crystal clear and distortion free.
