Snowball – crooner-style USB microphone


More vintage-style technology, this time with the Snowball USB microphone, which offers recording to your PC with a piece of kit that wouldn’t look out of place in front of a 1950s crooner.

It might look like something out of an old recording studio, but it does have a use as a modern piece of kit. Just plug it into your USB port and you can record vocal or instrument tracks through this professional-quality microphone to your PC or Mac. Or even better, set it up with the included stand to use for your voiceovers on your podcast.

The microphone has a number of settings to fine tune your voice and doesn’t require a software instal to work. Complete with stand and the USB cable, it retails online for $99.95 (around £50).
