The Converter

The art of signal conversion

How good a recording sounds depends not only on the microphone but also on the digitalization of the signal. Apogee has made this an art. The ClipMic digital therefore has its own external converter. The result: high-resolution data for any application.

The Mic

The Sennheiser ME 2 lapel microphone securely shields ambient noise and focuses completely on the next sound source – whether speech or song. Simple to attach, including wind deflector and highly robust construction.

The Apps

Easy-to-use apps

With MetaRecorder, you control your recordings with just a few taps of your fingers. The files are then available via Dropbox, iTunes, or for emailing. With the Maestro app, on the other hand, you can take full control of the ClipMic digital’s finer settings.
