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.

Podcasts, Voiceovers, Interviews, YouTube Performances, Live Streaming, and 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.

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.
