Bring Your Sound into Focus

Raspberry’s new, patent-pending Internal Acoustic Diffuser (IAD) design was inspired by treatments found in studios and concert halls. By diffusing noise and reflections as they enter the microphone, IAD focuses your voice or instrument while minimizing the sound of the room, so you get the results of a professional studio—wherever you are.

Protect Your Recordings

Recording on-the-go means setting up at a host of different locations. In order to minimize handling noise and table rumble, Raspberry’s integrated stand features a connection insulator and rubber shock absorber feet. These components minimize contact with the desktop and isolate the microphone from vibrations and noise that can ruin your recordings.

Many Ways to Play

No matter which side of the tech fence you’re on, Raspberry has you covered. Connect to your favorite device and start creating fast, with plug-and-play operation for PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad and included USB and Lightning cables. And a 1/4” thread mount allows you to connect Raspberry to a variety of camera and video tripods—perfect for recording audio for YouTube.
