HypeMiC Video

Music – Singing

HypeMiC’s unique analog compression enhances vocals like no other microphone. The three compression settings available in HypeMiC give you a truly balanced and “mixed” recording, reducing the need for extensive processing and mixing. Capturing your perfect take has never been easier.

Acoustic Instruments

HypeMiC brings a new level of smoothness and warmth to acoustic instrument recording. Varying compression levels allow you to capture the fullest tone of your instrument without compromise. Built for high SPL levels, HypeMiC provides greater clarity and detail when recording loud acoustic instruments from drums to horns to choirs.

Voice/Audio for Video

Podcasts, Voiceovers, Interviews, YouTube performances,
Live streaming & Conference calls

Ideal for live streaming, podcasts and broadcasts, HypeMiC balances audio dynamics for greater clarity resulting in better ‘broadcast ready’ recordings. HypeMiC is compatible with any Mac/PC and iOS app that allows you to select an audio device so you’re never without a pro studio when you are on the go.

Speciality Recording

HypeMiC analog output

HypeMiC is an awesome way to introduce new sounds into your recordings and mixes. You can send audio out of the HypeMiC stereo output into a mixer, audio interface and stand-alone recorder to capture the unique and bold sound of HypeMiC’s compression settings.

Compression Settings

HypeMiC offers 3 analog compression settings, all accessible from the front panel control knob:

Shape it (least)

The minimal amount of compression, great for shaping the vocals and instruments in your music recordings

Squeeze it (Medium)

Great for podcasts, interviews and streaming when you want to squeeze a little more pop out of your voice

Smash it (High)

Great for voice recording when you really want to smash it for that big broadcast sound

Try all settings with any source and adjust to your taste. Set your level before you select your compression setting and remember that compression will accentuate any noise that’s around you while you are recording.

Sing Without Delay

The Blend feature lets you listen and record with zero latency

Like its cousins, Jam+ and MiC+, HypeMiC also features an ⅛” stereo headphone output and Blend function for zero latency monitoring. The Blend button allows you to easily adjust how much direct signal input (sound going into the microphone) you hear mixed with software playback (sound coming out of your computer), enabling you to dial in the perfect mix.

Listen with More Level

Whether you’re monitoring as you play and record with your favorite app, or streaming audio, the stereo output on HypeMiC dramatically improves the playback quality of your audio. With high resolution sample rates up to 96k and ample headroom, HypeMiC delivers incredible clarity and plenty of volume to your headphones or powered speakers.

It’s a Microphone, Compressor, Preamp and Converter

Four products in one small package

HypeMiC combines a microphone, analog compressor, microphone preamp and A/D and D/A converters into one  compact device. Apogee has carefully designed each part of HypeMiC to deliver the highest quality signal possible with the lowest noise.
