From Drums... When it comes to recording drum kits, even finding a convenient place to put your microphones can be a challenge. The Mouse's capsule swivels and secures 180 degrees, so it can easily sneak in over your snare, or fit inside the kick drum's porthole. If your current go-to snare mic is a dynamic, try the Mouse to add more bright crackle; it can handle sound pressure levels up to 138 dB. The Mouse's reduced proximity effect is also a distinct advantage when positioning mics close to percussive sources. In fact, this mic is so well-suited to recording drums, Blue promotes the Mouse along with a matched pair of Dragonflies as a simple three-mic drum kit package.
...To Vocals The true test of any cardioid large-diaphragm condenser is how it does on vocals. After all, even if you produce beats and play all your instruments "in the box," sooner or later you'll need to lay down a polished vocal. If you're working with a bass or baritone singer with a dark, mellow tone, try the Mouse to bring out intelligibility and punch. The Mouse's minimized proximity effect smooths out vocal tracks, while adding tons of distinct character. Blue's optional pop filter is also available to minimize "P" pops. For a microphone that's been engineered with a specific sonic signature of larger-than-life bottom end, this Mouse certainly is a versatile animal.
Announcing the Mouse Broadcast voiceover announcers often prefer end-address mics that don't block their line of sight to script, screen, or control room. The Mouse's swiveling capsule can be positioned anywhere from side-address to end-address and beyond. Similar to the rotating capsule found on Blue's famous Dragonfly, the on-axis side of the capsule has a shinier grill, so you always know which side you should be speaking into. As an added boon to voice talent, the Mouse has surprisingly low handling noise despite its extended low-end response, thanks to built-in shock-mounting where the head contacts the U-shaped yoke. The Mouse also comes with its own custom-built external shock mount, reducing rumble and handling noise for announcers that grab the boom arm to adjust their own microphone.
