Blue Introduces the Ember XLR Microphone
The new mic is ideal for multitrack recording and capturing professional sound for YouTube video production and live-streaming.
Westlake Village, CA (January 7, 2019) -- Blue, a 20-year leading innovator in audio technology and design, announced Ember, a premium, cardioid XLR condenser microphone designed for pristine capture of vocals and instruments. Ember is ideal for multitrack recording, and capturing professional sound for YouTube video production and live-streaming. Featuring premium components and precision design, Ember is perfect for on-camera applications.
Ember is designed to help musicians, vocalists, and video creators deliver professional productions from their home studios with superb detail and depth,” said Tommy Edwards, director of product management at Blue Microphones. “Its precise cardioid pattern and ample, clean headroom deliver clear and focused sound, while the sleek design ensures optimal placement or low profile for on-camera productions. Ember is perfect for home studio creators who want their productions to stand out with rich, professional-quality audio.”
Featuring a proprietary, hand-tuned custom condenser capsule, Ember delivers superbly clear, open, and detailed performance for recording or streaming a wide variety of voices and instruments. A tight cardioid pickup pattern focuses on the sound source and minimizes room noise for a clean, up-front sound with excellent isolation. Ember’s streamlined form factor and compact side-address design is ideal for placement in tight spaces or limited on-screen real estate.
Custom-designed phantom power circuitry and a precise cardioid polar pattern ensure remarkably consistent frequency response with minimal noise for a rich, smooth vocal sound. Clean, high-output gain ensures impressive headroom for even the most dynamic speech and instruments. Ember comes with a mount for any standard microphone stand and is also compatible with Blue’s S3 Shock suspension mount and Compass boom arm accessories.

Ember will be available in February at Guitar Center, Amazon and other authorized Blue Microphones dealers for the suggested retail price of $99.99. Ember is currently available for pre-order at select retailers.
