Blue Microphones have released the Mikey 2G iPod mic - an updated version of their popular pocket-sized iPod and iPhone mic attachment.

The Blue Mikey 2G now features a 3.5mm line-in socket for direct recording of instruments and other sound sources.

In addition, the second generation Mikey features a 230° range of adjustability, seven different detent positions and a soft carry pouch for protection.

Equipped with a pair of custom-tuned Blue mic capsules, the Mikey 2G offers even better professional-quality stereo recording than the original.

The Mikey 2G also sports an improved acoustic circuit, which aims to provide higher-resolution audio capture when recording high-volume sources.

Blue are renowned for their innovation within the recording world, the second generation Mikey is no exception, as John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones explains:

"The second generation Mikey is a natural next step for Blue as we continue to expand our consumer audio line to include enhanced portable recording."

Blue have also introduced Blue Fire, a new recording app for the iPhone and iPod Touch which is available from the iTunes app store.

Developed with Audiofile Engineering, the app is fully optimised for use alongside the Blue Mikey 2G.
