Ordered an Apogee MiC this morning. If you've never heard of it before, it's a USB microphone which can plug directly into an iPad, iPhone or Mac. Although I have lots of more substantial recording gear, lowering the barrier of entry to record something quick that sounds decent is something that I've been wanting to do for a long time. I expect it to be good for recording podcasts, live shows and doing quick demos of things at home.
If it sounds decent it could mean I start doing a lot of my recording straight to Garageband on the iPad.
