Spark Digital features handy onboard headphone output and volume control—making it a complete rig for on-the-go recording. And with Focus Control, Spark Digital gives you the sound of two different mics at the push of a button.
Get your hands on the only studio microphone that lets you record truly amazing tracks anywhere your music leads you. With USB and iOS connectivity, Spark Digital effortlessly integrates with Mac, PC, iPhone and iPad so you can record wherever you are. It's one small step for Blue, and one giant leap for mic-kind.
Spark Digital's analog electronics are Class A and fully discrete with a transformerless output. Simply put, this means that the sound which arrives at the diaphragm (mic capsule) is converted to electrical energy (transduced) is then amplified as accurately as possible, with minimal coloration and absolutely no integrated circuits (also known as "IC's") in the signal path. Integrated circuits, by the way, are smaller and inexpensive versions of large 'discrete' components that talk a big game but really don't perform quite as well.
The engineers at Blue take your sound seriously, so we designed Spark Digital's signal path exclusively with those high quality discrete analog components. This analog signal is then passed off to the microphone's digital conversion circuitry, which converts the analog signal to digital data that can be understood by computers or iPads/iPhones. This allows complete control of the sound quality and conversion process before entering your computer. The individual differences may be subtle, but when added up it's a difference you can appreciate. As a result, we think you'll find Spark Digital's overall sonic character is superbly detailed and pleasing to the ear, a microphone with truly professional sound.
