Blue Studio Legacy Goes Mobile
Raspberry features an incredibly dynamic condenser capsule developed
from our legacy of high-end studio microphones. What does this mean for you?
You get optimal sound wherever you choose to place the mic-- up close or at
Our patented premium capsule technology prevents distortion and delivers the
clarity of a large-diaphragm studio microphone in a small, portable format.
Raspberry’s new, patent-pending Internal Acoustic Diffuser (IAD)
design was inspired by treatments found in studios and concert halls. By diffusing noise and
reflections as they enter the microphone, IAD focuses your voice or instrument while minimizing
the sound of the room, so you get the results of a professional studio—wherever you are.
Protect Your Recordings
Recording on-the-go means setting up at a host of different locations.
In order to minimize handling noise and table rumble, Raspberry’s integrated stand features a
connection insulator and rubber shock absorber feet. These components minimize contact with the
desktop and isolate the microphone from vibrations and noise that can ruin your recordings.

No matter which side of the tech fence you’re on, Raspberry has you
covered. Connect to your favorite device and start creating fast, with plug-and-play operation
for PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad and included USB and Lightning cables. And a 1/4” thread mount
allows you to connect Raspberry to a variety of camera and video tripods—perfect for recording
