I am glad when my truths and understandings are challenged. When my assumptions, based on my limited experience, are reworked. Like many podcasters, when I started podcasting, I began with using the onboard microphone to my computer. Then I graduated to the Blue Snowball Microphone. Because of my less than favorable experience with the Blue Snowball Microphone, I swore off all condenser microphones and all products from the Blue company. I'm so glad that I was proven wrong. My enlightenment started when one of my co-host for the Sci-fi Diner Podcast showed up at a convention with a Blue Yeti. When she plugged it into the mixing board, I was amazed at how crystal clear and beautiful it sounded. Then Bob DeGrande from the Dexter Cast came on the Podcasting Gear Show and talked about the Blue NESSIE Microphone. In a lot of ways, he and my co-host for the Sci-fi Diner helped redeem my perception of the microphones that Blue puts out. "Designed to combat the most common pitfalls of recording, Blue NESSIE Microphone automatically adapts to whatever you’re recording, applying professional studio processing combined with a built-in pop filter and internal shockmount, to produce expertly finished sound, without the need for additional mixing or editing. Just as the latest point-and-shoot cameras will reduce redeye and automatically adjust focus and exposure for improved photos, Blue NESSIE Microphone professionally enhances audio so that you get polished music demos, podcasts, interviews, YouTube broadcasts and more, instantly!"
