Good, but problematic getting a high enough record level
on 3 January 2016
Yes, it's pretty good, though my daughter tends to find the volume a little low when doing voice-overs, despite setting the "levels" slider to maximum. There is some fiddling about I've done that improves matters to a usable state, but the whole process was a bit less than ideal.
It's worth noting - as I discovered hunting around on Google for ways to fix the low volume - that the "iCE" version is a slightly cheaper version of the standard Blue Snowball, without the 3-way switch on the back. That said, the "iCE" is supposedly equivalent to the standard microphone on setting 1, which is its most sensitive, so I can't really blame my difficulties on that.
I don't know if there are any other microphones out there that would have been easier to configure satisfactorily, of course.
