THE ONLY MIC WITH A BUILT-IN
SOUND ENGINEER

Nessie is hands down the smartest USB microphone you’ll ever meet. In fact, it’s the only mic that automatically applies fundamental recording processes—such as EQ, de-essing, compression, and level control—in real time to instantly enhance your audio. Nessie even adapts to whatever you’re recording—applying different levels of processing so that your audio remains in the hi-fi sweet spot. It’s like having an audio engineer built right into your computer microphone.

HOW DOES NESSIE DO IT?

Just as the latest point-and-shoot cameras automatically reduce redeye and adjust focus for improved photos, Nessie instantly adds professional studio processing as you record.

  • Adaptive processing, including EQ, de-esser and level control, automatically smoothes and refines your audio in real time
  • Studio-grade pop filter and shockmount reduces harsh “p” sounds and eliminates disruptive rumbling and vibrations

EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN ONE PACKAGE

No one wants to hear those two dreaded words…“ sold separately.” That’s why for Nessie, we included everything you need to make expert recordings. Nessie comes fully loaded with professional studio processing tools to contour your sound during any recording application. And with its built-in shockmount and pop filter, you can finally say good-bye to the accidental mic rumblings and popping noises that ruin a perfect track. Yes, gone are the days of returning to the store for “one last thing.” Nessie is the one USB microphone that has it all.

FOCUS ON YOUR PERFORMANCE

Bring Nessie into your home studio and take the guesswork out of recording. Zero-latency monitoring eliminates distracting delays, while easy-access headphone volume and instant mute aid in fine-tuning your recording or broadcast workflow. You don’t need to be a studio engineer to get professional results. Just focus on the performance—and leave the rest to Nessie.

TOTAL FLEXIBILITY FOR ALL YOUR RECORDING PROJECTS

Optimize your performances by switching between three USB mic settings—each designed to automatically deliver a unique blend of audio processing for any recording application.

Vocal

Lowers high-frequency sibilance by adding De-Esser, giving you a full, rich “radio” voice for podcasting, voiceovers, and other media projects

Music

Enables all audio processors to make instruments and musical recordings stand out in shimmering detail

Raw

Bypasses audio processing to deliver untouched audiothat can be altered manually in post-production editing

Nessie is more than sonically flexible—it’s literally flexible. With its unique serpentine head design, Nessie can be adjusted for optimal placement in any desktop recording situation. It’s the best USB microphone for computer recording.
