Blue Bluebird SL overview

  • 1Description

The B&H Bluebird SL Solo Artist Recording Kit is a microphone, interface, and accessories bundle designed to provide high-resolution audio capture and reproduction for vocalists, producers, and musicians in home, project, and mobile studios. It includes a Blue Bluebird SL condenser microphone, a Universal Audio Arrow audio interface, a balanced XLR 3-pin mic cable, one pop filter, a tripod mic stand with fixed boom, and a clamp-on headphone holder. The Bluebird SL features a large-diaphragm, gold-sputtered capsule with a cardioid polar pattern. The Arrow audio interface connects via Thunderbolt 3, offers near-zero latency and resolution up to 24-bit/192 kHz, and includes DSP-powered Analog Classics plug-ins. The clamp-on headphone holder easily attaches to the mic stand and offers a convenient resting place for your headphones.

  • Blue Bluebird SL Large-Diaphragm Condenser Studio Microphone

    Featuring a proprietary, hand-crafted capsule, the Blue Bluebird SL is a studio condenser microphone which builds upon its predecessor to offer a switchable 100 Hz high-pass filter and a -20 dB pad, thus ensuring a precise and nuanced sound. It utilizes a large, gold-sputtered Mylar diaphragm, replete with a sculpted rear backplate to emphasize resonances at higher frequencies; this creates the clarity of treble, smoothness of midrange, and richness of lows characteristic of Bluebird microphones, all while allowing sound sources to cut through a mix.

    The Bluebird SL offers a cardioid polar pattern, giving you a frequency range of 20 Hz to 20 kHz—more than enough to record vocals, pianos, stringed instruments, and more. An SPL of 138 dB allows the microphone to capture a wide swath of dynamic material without damaging elements of the microphone. The microphone requires 48V phantom power to run, provides a dynamic range of 126.3 dB, and includes both a custom shockmount and a wooden storage box.

    Key Features at a Glance
    • Emphasized upper clarity with smooth mid frequencies for voices and instruments
    • Hand-built, large-diaphragm cardioid capsule
    • High-pass filter and -20 dB pad to promote versatility
    • Suitable for use with home-studio interfaces (USB, Thunderbolt, or otherwise)

  • Universal Audio Arrow 2x4 Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interface with Realtime UAD-2 SOLO Core Processing

    The Universal Audio Arrow is an interface designed for project-studio, home studio use, and on-the-road use. Connecting to your computer over Thunderbolt 3, the unit provides two combination XLR-1/4” connections for mic/line sources, as well as a 1/4" input specifically tailored for electric guitars and basses. Two Unison preamps are on hand, each of which lets you color the incoming sound through Universal Audio’s preeminent modeling plug-ins; so, if you want the sound of a Neve or an API on your guitar or vocal, you can purchase one of the company’s appropriate plug-ins and use them as you record, committing their sound to the resulting audio capture.

    The Arrow sports two 1/4" output connections for your monitors, as well as a dedicated headphone output for listening through cans. Whether you monitor through your speakers or through headphones, you’ll experience a near-zero latency performance, meaning you can play through UAD’s emulations without the processing interfering with your performance or timing.

    The interface, which is bus-powered over Thunderbolt, features a UAD-2 SOLO Core processor, giving you some dedicated DSP for operating Universal Audio’s plug-ins. This unit is designed to be portable, with its all-metal construction and aforementioned bus-powering. Included with the Arrow is the Realtime Analog Classics bundle from UAD, whose specific plug-ins can be perused in the features section.

    Key Features at a Glance
    • Desktop 2x4 Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with 24-bit / 192 kHz audio conversion
    • Unison mic preamp and guitar amp emulations from Neve, API, Manley, Marshall, Fender, and more

  • Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 20' (6.1 m), Gray

    The gray Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (20') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and to provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.

    Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
    Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
    24-AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity
