Jon Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones joins Todd and Don on the live coverage. He showed off three new microphones at Blue.

The Mikey Digital is an improved microphone you can attach to and iPad. Being digital, you can do things inside the mic, like a 3-position switch. You can get a low gain, high gain, or an automatic mode. There is an input to the Mikey, where you can now use it as a lav mic input or a line input.

The Tiki is a USB plug-in device to enhance the microphone. The Tiki contains intelligent signal processing so that strange noises, such as typing on a keyboard, is ignored. Noise cancelling, EQ, and intelligent mute to understand this is not a voice and mutes it. It’s a great device for note-taking USB.
