Blue Yeti multi-pattern USB condenser microphone
The Blue Yeti is the most advanced, versatile USB microphone with multiple pickup patterns. A combination of three mic pickups and four different pickup patterns make the Yeti a powerful piece of kit for all manner of recordings - from meetings to vocals or podcasting applications. As the Yeti features a THX certificate, you can count on excellent sound quality and great performance - you'll be able to easily record bright-sounding audio!
The innovative 3-capsule design lets you record in stereo, and you can select three other pickup patterns too - cardioid, omnidirectional and bidirectional. Truly, the versatility of the Yeti is many times greater than that of other USB microphones.
It features a quality analogue-to-digital converter of 48 kHz / 16 bits, so that the registered signal can be transferred to your computer accurately. Furthermore, the Yeti has a built-in headphone amp, so that you can monitor the audio without any delay, and the volume can be adjusted with the rotary knob on the Yeti. The housing features a mute button and the recording level can be adjusted on the microphone housing itself too.
Low distortion, a balanced frequency response and accurate reproduction of registered audio characterise the Yeti. You can also easily connect the Yeti to your computer - no drivers are needed, just plug it in to the USB connector.
