      I have been recording in Garageband for years using the built in microphone on my Mac. I tried this mic to see if it would make a difference, and it really does I have been recording in Garageband for years using the built in microphone on my Mac. I tried this mic to see if it would make a difference, and it really does. I'm so glad I gave it a chance. I had no idea what a difference a good microphone would make. Totally satisfied.

      Impressive!

      Shure makes the best pro mics in the industry, so I'm not surprised they made the best USB mic that I've ever tried.
