Apogee HypeMiC USB Condenser Microphone

USB microphone with headphone output and studio quality compression - bring magic to your vocals, voice-overs, instruments, percussion, and podcasts
MFR# Hype Mic

Product Description

Ever wonder how your favorite recordings seem to leap from the speaker, with vocals that magically float above even a dense background track? That’s compression. Apogee HypeMiC features studio-quality analog compression that’s easy to use and brings the magic to your vocals, voice-overs, instruments, percussion, and podcasts - anything you record! With HypeMiC and your iPhone or computer, you can make amazing recordings on the go.

Vocals


HypeMiC’s unique analog compression enhances vocals like no other microphone. The three compression settings available in HypeMiC give you a truly balanced and “mixed” recording, reducing the need for extensive processing and mixing. Capturing your perfect take has never been easier. 


Acoustic Instruments

HypeMiC brings a new level of smoothness and warmth to acoustic instrument recording. Varying compression levels allow you to capture the fullest tone of your instrument without compromise. Built for high SPL levels, HypeMiC provides greater clarity and detail when recording loud acoustic instruments from drums to horns to choirs.

Voice/Audio for Video

Ideal for livestreaming, podcasts and broadcasts, HypeMiC balances audio dynamics for greater clarity resulting in better ‘broadcast ready’ recordings. HypeMiC is compatible with any Mac/PC and iOS app that allows you to select an audio device so you’re never without a pro studio when you are on the go.

Analog output

HypeMiC is an awesome way to introduce new sounds into your recordings and mixes. You can send audio out of the HypeMiC stereo output into a mixer, audio interface and stand-alone recorder to capture the unique and bold sound of HypeMiC’s compression settings.

Compression Settings

HypeMiC offers 3 analog compression settings, all accessible from the front panel control knob:

  • Shape it (Least): The minimal amount of compression, great for shaping the vocals and instruments in your music recordings
  • Squeeze it (Medium): Great for podcasts, interviews and streaming when you want to squeeze a little more pop out of your voice
  • Smash it (High): Great for voice recording when you really want to smash it for that big broadcast sound.

Sing Without Delay

The Blend feature lets you listen and record with zero latency. Like its cousins, Jam+ and MiC+, HypeMiC also features an ⅛” stereo headphone output and Blend function for zero latency monitoring. The Blend button allows you to easily adjust how much direct signal input (sound going into the microphone) you hear mixed with software playback (sound coming out of your computer), enabling you to dial in the perfect mix.

Listen with More Level

Whether you’re monitoring as you play and record with your favorite app, or streaming audio, the stereo output on HypeMiC dramatically improves the playback quality of your audio. With high resolution sample rates up to 96k and ample headroom, HypeMiC delivers incredible clarity and plenty of volume to your headphones or 
powered speakers.

Four products in one small package

HypeMiC combines a microphone, analog compressor, microphone preamp and A/D and D/A converters into one compact device. Apogee has carefully designed each part of HypeMiC to deliver the highest quality signal possible with the lowest noise.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
Martin C.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
