When I got my hands on the iPad 2 the first thing I downloaded was Garageband. It’s probably my favorite app currently and am constantly looking for cooler ways of using it. Enter the Meteor Mic ($100). This plug-and-play USB mic works perfectly with the iPad 2 and camera connection kit ($29).
The mic features a large 25mm diaphragm condenser, 16-bitt, 44.1/48kHz resolution and integrated folding legs so you can position it to your liking. I’m a stickler for design when it comes to the technology I purchase. The meteor mic is beautiful touch to your desk with it’s chrome-plated body and integrated headphone jack.
