Here's a microphone you can pretty much plug into anything and start recording right away, the IK Multimedia iRig Mic HD. This handheld USB mic is universally compatible with Mac and Windows PCs; iOS devices including iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models; and even Android devices - no fancy software needed! One of the design features on the iRig Mic HD that really stuck out to us here at Sweetwater is the way it secures the USB cable with a special shield. Also, it's really cool that you can stick this microphone on a mic stand. And with up to 24-bit/96kHz, high-quality digital output, you'll get truly useable results with your IK Multimedia iRig Mic HD.
