Blue launches Raspberry Studio mobile recording package

Blue Microphones has announced Raspberry Studio, an all-in-one mobile recording system that combines Blue’s mobile USB microphone, Raspberry, with custom recording software from PreSonus and mastering software from iZotope.

Raspberry Studio includes professional production tools such as custom templates for music, voice-overs and podcasts, which feature automatic track setup and dialed-in sound processing for professionally produced vocals and instruments.

Raspberry Studio features PreSonus Studio One Artist Blue Microphones Edition recording software, which lets users stack multiple instrument and vocal tracks to create fully produced songs. With a 32-bit audio engine, tracks can be edited on screen with ease, while multiple takes can even be pieced together to craft a complete vocal performance.

iZotope Ozone Elements is also included, featuring professionally designed presets and simple macro controls that allow users to quickly get their mixes ready for radio and streaming.

Raspberry – Blue’s premium mobile USB microphone for PC, Mac and iOS – uses an Internal Acoustic Diffuser (IAD) that focuses on the voice or instrument and minimises environmental sounds by diffusing noise and reflections. It also features an integrated stand that minimises contact with surfaces and isolates the microphone from vibrations, while onboard controls make it easy to adjust gain and monitor audio during recording.

Raspberry comes with a USB cable compatible with PC and Mac, along with a Lightning cable for iPad and iPhone connectivity. It is compatible with most Android devices via the OTG accessory cable, which is not included.

“Raspberry Studio offers modern creators everything they need to produce studio-quality projects on the go,” said Tommy Edwards, director of product management at Blue Microphones. “By combining Raspberry’s acclaimed design with custom Presonus recording software and iZotope mastering software, Raspberry Studio allows creators to move beyond the desktop studio, follow their inspiration and get professional results anywhere.”

Raspberry Studio is now available from retailers at an MSRP of $219.99.
