I've been really hard on Blue in the past. I can't say I love the Snowball as a recording solution, but the company has made a lot of progress with the Yeti line of mics.
Meeting some of their company reps at their booth in CES, I was happy to find they were game to chat some audio, after they made fun of my "SomeAudioGuy" badge of course.
I was excited to see they had a Spark Digital on display. As we start relying on tablets and smartphones more and more for mobility work (I didn't bring a laptop this year to see if it could be done), hardware solutions are going to be vital.
I'll be following up with Blue to see if i can demo the mic at their studio soon, and I'll make sure to give you guys the 411. More info on the Blue Spark Digital.
