New Media Gear 017: Blue Microphones Icicle XLR to USB Mic Converter/Mic Preamp

This is another piece of podcasting and audio recording gear that I have seen mentioned  numerous times. It has been around for a while but could still be an interesting piece of gear for new podcasters.

The Blue Icicle allows you to convert any standard XLR connected microphone into a USB microphone that can be plugged directly into your computer. This a great way of providing some flexibility in where and how you use your microphones. It also allows you to start off with the more standard XLR mics so that you don’t have to upgrade from a USB only mic as your podcasting work grows.
