Now available for pre-order at a street price of $219.99, the Blue Microphones Raspberry Studio bundles the Raspberry mobile USB mic for Windows, Mac, and iOS devices with Presonus Studio One Artist multitrack DAW and iZotope Ozone Elements mastering software.
Blue promises studio-quality 24-bit audio from the plug-and-play Raspberry USB large-diaphragm mic, suitable for recording both voice and acoustic instruments. To make mobile recording for multiple purposes even more convenient, the package includes custom software templates for recording music, voice-over, podcasts, and YouTube videos. The templates handle automatic track setup and audio track processing to make it as fast and easy as possible to achieve release-ready recordings.
The Raspberry uses a patent-pending Internal Acoustic Diffuser (IAD) design based on the acoustic treatment of professional studios and concert halls. This technology diffuses noise and reflections as they enter the mic to minimize room sound and focus on your voice or instrument.
Besides the Raspberry mic from a highly respected name in microphones and one of the best bundled DAWs around with custom templates, the Raspberry Studio package also includes a table-top stand, microphone stand adapter, USB and Lightning cables, a soft-suede carrying pouch, and iZotope Ozone Elements mastering software. See the product page for audio examples.
