Product Code: MKE 2 Digital

The MKE 2 Digital is the result of a partnership with Sennheiser and Apogee to offer a personal recording solution that combines superior, clip-on microphone technology with legendary digital audio conversion. Designed to deliver incredible quality in a compact and easy to use system, the MKE 2 Digital sets a new standard in broadcast speech recording, empowering anyone to make professional audio recordings on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

The MKE 2 Digital was designed with the professional in mind who wants to record speech in the field and demands the ultimate in audio performance: a wide, natural frequency response, extended dynamic range and excellent transient response.

The industry-standard MKE 2 is at the heart of this package. Featuring a high maximum sound pressure level and superior signal-to-noise ratio, this clip-on microphone is fitted with Sennheiser’s Umbrella diaphragm. In this proven design, an acoustically inactive membrane stretches across the active acoustical diaphragm, impeding moisture ingress into the high-performing acoustics of the capsule, thus creating a rugged construction for years of reliable service.

The MKE 2 Digital comes with:

Digital Conversion and Mic Preamp by Apogee
Analog clip-on microphones require a mic pre-amp and audio interface to be able to record the signal. While all iOS devices are equipped with a built-in analog input and mic pre-amp, they are optimized for telephone calls and not for professional quality audio recording. Apogee's award-winning mic pre-amp and A/D conversion circuitry are built into the MKE 2 Digital. This special circuitry gives you maximum gain with minimal noise. The A/D converter provides a resolution of up to 24-bit/96kHz.

Easy Monitoring
As the MKE 2 Digital clip-on microphone plugs directly into the Lightning adaptor on the iOS® device, the headset socket can be used to monitor the audio that is being recorded.

Apogee's MetaRecorder app
The perfect companion to the MKE 2 Digital, Apogee's MetaRecorder is the first audio recording app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to offer intuitive multi-take recording, tagging and file organization for any field recording scenario. MetaRecorder features 24-bit/96kHz recording quality plus software control of the mic input level and recording presets.

Transform Your Final Cut Pro X Workflow
Apply metadata tags like Keywords, Favorites, Markers and more to your audio files while recording in the field, then share the recorded audio and Final Cut Pro XML files to Dropbox directly from MetaRecorder. When imported into Final Cut Pro on a Mac, the captured metadata greatly simplifies the process of organizing and parsing your media, substantially accelerating your post-production workflow.

Control with Apple Watch
Essential features of MetaRecorder can be controlled from Apple Watch – start and stop recording, add a take to Favorites, add Markers or set your microphone input level.

The free version of MetaRecorder is available immediately from the Apple App Store. Users are limited to 60 seconds of continuous recording until the full version is unlocked either by connecting a compatible Apogee or Sennheiser audio interface or by purchasing from within the app.

*NOTE: Apogee's MetaRecorder is a two-channel audio recording app made specifically for Sennheiser's clip-on digital microphones. MetaRecorder makes recording, tagging and organizing audio in the field simple and efficient. It is also the first iPhone recording app to export XML files for Final Cut Pro X.

As an alternative to MetaRecorder, Apogee's Maestro App offers full control of MKE 2 digital if you are using a video recording app like FiLMiC Pro or the Camera app that comes on your iOS device.

MetaRecorder and Maestro offer basic presets that let you shape the sound of your MKE 2 Digital microphone with EQ, compression and limiting to achieve the most natural or unique result.
