A great mic,

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I recorded some singing vocals using Audacity software on a PC. Installation wasn't straightforward as my PC didn't recognise the mic when it was first plugged in and it took a bit of fiddling to get it recognised. Once it was accepted it showed up on the list of devices in Audacity (as Microphone (BLUE NESSIE). Then it was a simple case of downloading a music track, adding a new track for the vocals then just click Record and Go. There are 3 possible settings for the mic - Voice, Music and Raw. I tried all three settings, and found the Music setting gave the best result for singing with a bright richer quality. For just speaking I used the opening speech from Romeo & Juliet and found that the Voice and Raw settings worked best, the Music setting added an unnatural quality to speak voice.
Overall a handy device, fairly easy to install (likely most people will find it installs on first plug-in, if not, unplug from the USB, try again with a different cable and it should work fine) and with a multitude of uses. Recommended.
