Product Description

You've got a nice XLR microphone, and you've got a computer running your favorite audio software. Now you need one crystal-clear channel to get your mic into your computer. Skip the bulky multichannel preamp/interfaces and go with the simple, stylish Icicle from Blue Microphones. This compact XLR to USB preamp can accept nearly any pro microphone, with +48V phantom power for condenser mics and plenty of clean gain for dynamic mics.

Small Size, Snappy Setup

The first thing you'll notice about the Blue Icicle is its small size, light weight, and streamlined design. Although the Icicle is compact enough to fit in your hand, it contains a professional, low-noise microphone preamp and A/D converter. Setup is a snap: plug your mic's XLR cable into one end of the Icicle, and connect the included 6-foot USB cable to your computer. When the USB cable is plugged in, the Icicle's logo glows a cool blue, and most computers recognize the Icicle immediately as a USB audio input.

Make Any XLR Mic a USB Mic

As you set levels and record, simply adjust the Icicle's built-in analog gain control knob to a healthy level for your sound source. The Icicle's on-board A/D converter outputs CD-quality 44.1 kHz / 16-bit digital audio via its USB output. And since it works with any XLR mic, it grows along with your mic collection. If you need only one channel of recording, and you have your own XLR mic, the Blue Icicle is a breeze to set up and use. Setup is so foolproof that the user manual for the ingenious Icicle is only one page long.

Features:

- Lightweight, compact design
- Standard XLR input and USB output
- Built-in low-noise mic preamp and A/D converter
- Analog gain knob
- 48V phantom power for condenser microphones
- 44.1 kHz / 16-bit digital audio output
- Truly plug-and-play -- no drivers necessary
- Included 6-foot USB cable

Need to lay down some quick voiceover, vocals, or solo instrument overdubs? Don't limit yourself to consumer-grade USB microphones. Plug in the Icicle to add a USB output to your favorite XLR mic.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
