Sennheiser and Apogee Launch Digital Clip-On Mics at NAB 2015

Sennheiser Apogee clip on micSennheiser and Apogee have teamed up to create new digital clip-on microphones that help you to capture sound professionally. They are great for journalists who need an easy solution for field interviews, lecturers that want to record a talk, or a parent who wants to record their child reading out loud.

ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital combine Apogee’s A/D conversion expertise with Sennheiser’s microphone design knowledge to give users optimum sound quality for their recordings. They are especially designed for iOS devices. Both microphones feature a Lightning connector to directly connect to iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, thus creating high-quality, ultra portable solutions for recording speech.

Analog clip-on microphones require a mic pre-amp and audio interface to be able to record the signal. While all iOS devices are equipped with a built-in analog input and mic pre-amp, they are optimized for telephone calls and not professional quality audio recording. Apogee’s award-winning mic pre-amp and A/D conversion circuitry are built into ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital. This gives users maximum gain with minimal noise. The A/D converter provides a resolution of up to 24bit/96kHz.

The Sennheiser/Apogee digital clip-on microphones plug directly into the Lightning adaptor on the iOS device. The headset socket can be used to monitor the audio that is being recorded.

Apogee’s MetaRecorder app is the perfect companion to ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital. The MetaRecorder is the first audio recording app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to offer intuitive multi-take recording, tagging, and file organization for any field recording scenario. MetaRecorder features 24 bit/96kHZ recording quality plus software control of the mic input level and recording presets.

After you are done recording and adding metadata tags like Keywords, Favorites, and Markers, share the recorded audio and Final Cut Pro XML files to Dropbox directly from MetaRecorder. When imported into Final Cut Pro on a Mac, the captured metadata greatly simplifies the process of organizing and parsing your media. This makes post-production workflow go much faster.

The MKE 2 features a high maximum sound pressure level and superior signal-to-noise ratio. This clip-on microphone is fitted with Sennheiser’s Umbrella diaphragm. An acoustically inactive membrane stretches across the active acoustical diaphragm, impeding moisture ingress into the high-preforming acoustics of the capsule.

Essential features of MetaRecorder can be controlled from Apple Watch – start and stop recording, add a take to Favorites, add Markers or set your microphone input level.
