Mikme can be also used as an external USB Microphone with your computer (Mac and PC). So you can connect the Mikme Microphone via an USB cable to the computer and record with any computer software such as DAWs, audio and video software, Skype with the Mikme Microphone.
4 - Wireless audio recording with the Mikme App
With Mikme's patented protocol "Lost & Found" you can securely sync high-quality audio data from the Mikme Microphone wirelessly with the Mikme Recording App.
As every audio recording is always saved locally within the Mikme Microphone internal 16 GB memory the protocol makes sure that every audio data packets is transmitted to the Mikme App in the right order. If packets are lost while the wireless transmission over the air (via Bluetooth) all your audio recording is still safe as the entire recording is always saved locally at the Mikme Microphone. The protocol will retransmit the lost packets at the end of the recording and will eliminate and compensate the delay of the wireless transmission.
Conventional Bluetooth Microphones have not local storage and transmit only 8kHz of Audio bandwidth which results in bad audio quality and you will get a lot of dropouts.
Mikme will record in the full 44.1 kHz audio bandwidth with 24 Bits in wireless mode and safes the audio file locally in Mikme's built-in 16 GB memory.
