Adaptive USB microphone for fearless recording.
Nessie is a intelligent desktop USB recording microphone with adaptive technology that instantly delivers studio-enhanced sound for recording vocals, instruments, voiceovers, and more.
Designed to combat the most common pitfalls of recording, Nessie 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. Nessie professionally enhances audio so that you get polished music demos, podcasts, interviews, YouTube broadcasts and more, instantly!
The built-in, studio-grade pop filter and shockmount reduce harsh plosives and disruptive rumbling and vibrations, while the adaptive processing, including EQ, de-esser and level control, automatically smoothes and refines your audio in real time.
Nessie’s three flexible recording modes are optimized for richer vocals, more detailed instruments or an option for raw audio for manual post-production editing. Nessie employs a single custom-tuned condenser capsule with a cardioid pattern.
Nessie also features a zero-latency headphone output for direct monitoring, which is critical for eliminating distracting delay, while headphone volume and instant mute are located directly on the microphone. For optimal positioning, Nessie’s head adjusts with serpentine flexibility. Nessie is plug-and-play compatible via USB with both PC and Mac with driverless installation. For mobile recording, you can connect Nessie to iPad using Apple’s camera adapters (30-pin to USB or Lighting to USB) and a powered USB hub, both sold separately.
