This might make everyone’s life a bit better – Blue Microphones (they’ve lately been branching out into more consumer stuff, buy they started out making great studio mics, so they definitely know how to do that. I’ve used some of their capsules in the studio for years now and I love them.) is coming out with a microphone that attaches directly to the newer generation Flip cameras (it won’t work on my older one – wah). Hopefully this will make YouTube sound a whole lot better, not to mention everyone’s home recordings of their new guitars. I think it’s going to street at somewhere between $60 and $80, and it should be coming out very soon.
It probably won’t replace the Sony PCM D50 that we use to demo guitars here at the showroom, but it’ll be a great step up from the lousy audio quality of the Flip cameras, and you won’t have to manually sync audio in a DAW to get decent sound on your videos. I’ve tried Blue’s Mikey for recording with the iPod and the sound is downright acceptable.
