NAMM 2018: Apogee MiC gets updated with new Plus edition

NAMM 2018: Apogee has updated the MiC, which we first saw in 2011 and then updated to a 96k version in 2014, with a complete overhaul called the MiC Plus.

MiC Plus features an entirely new design and promises improved sound quality, dynamic range and adds a built-in headphone output for latency-free monitoring while recording on any device.

The microphone still retains its portable form-factor in combination with the professional quality you'd expect from a studio condenser microphone.

Setup is simple with MiC Plus selected as your audio interface in your favourite app and also includes three cables for connecting directly to Lightning/iOS, USB-C or USB (Type A) devices.

We will see Apogee at this year’s NAMM show, but if you cannot wait that long, the MiC Plus is available now priced at £239 RRP inc VAT. For more information please go to the Apogee website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
