More details on the Blue Yeti
USB Microphone: The Blue (Logitech) Yeti microphone is a USB connected condenser microphone that plugs directly into your computer. The Yeti mic uses Blue's proprietary tri-capsule technology, incorporating 3 condenser capsules specifically arranged to provide optimal recording in most any situation. The Yeti can produce pristine, studio-quality recordings and streams in 48kHz/16-bit resolution. The Blue microphone simplifies recording by plugging directly into your computer (PC/MAC) for music recording, podcasting, live-streaming, gaming, and more.
Polar Patterns: The microphone features 4 polar patterns, selectable from a built-in dial on the mic body. Patterns include:
- Cardioid: Front-facing pickup for single-person speech and vocals.
- Bidirectional: Front and rear pickup. Ideal for interviews with two people face to face.
- Stereo: Provides stereo pickup from the front. Ideal for instruments or groups.
- Omnidirectional: This provides stereo pickup from all sides and is ideal for field recordings, outdoor events, or conference calls.
Controls & Connections: The Yeti microphone includes 2 rotary controls for mic Gain adjustment and Pattern selection. The front of the mic includes a Mute button and a Headphone Volume control. The underside of the mic features a USB mini-B port, for connecting to your computer, and a 3.5mm stereo headphone socket. The Blue logo is the "front" of the microphone, and should be oriented as such while in use.
