The Blue Yeti is probably the gold standard of USB mics on the market, and it is the microphone of choice for many streamers, podcasters and content producers.
Blue is now following up this hugely successful microphone with a smaller and cheaper option, the Blue Yeti Nano priced at £89.99.
Key features of the new miniature microphone include:
- Designed for broadcast-quality podcasting, YouTube promotions, game streaming, Skype / VoIP calls, and voiceover work
- Comes with two proprietary condenser mic capsules
- Supports high-quality 24-bit/48kHz recording
- Plug n play performance
- Features two pickup-pattern controls directly on the mic – allowing flexibility to record a single source, or multiple sources at once
- Comes with the all-new Blue Sherpa companion app
The Yeti Nano delivers Blue studio-quality sound, with two proprietary condenser mic capsules that are specifically tuned to give your voice exceptional presence and detail. Yeti Nano supports high-quality 24-bit/48kHz recording, so you can give your podcast or video truly professional production value. Plus, Yeti Nano offers plug n play performance with a wide range of software and operating systems, making it versatile and easy-to-use in any environment.
Featuring two pickup-pattern controls directly on the mic, Yeti Nano gives you the flexibility to record a single source, or multiple sources at once. Cardioid mode records sources that are directly in front of the microphone and is perfect for podcasts with a single host, game streaming, Skype calls, voiceovers, vocal performances, or instruments. Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from every direction and is ideal for conference calls with multiple participants or a multi-person interview on a podcast.
Yeti Nano comes with the all-new Blue Sherpa companion app, which features quick and direct control options from your desktop to help you get the most from your mic. Mute and unmute your mic and headphones, fine-tune gain and levels, switch polar patterns, and change sample rates—all within the software. Sherpa will also download firmware updates directly to your Yeti Nano, seamlessly keeping you up to date. Sherpa support for Blue's full USB mic lineup is coming soon.
Yeti Nano features a built-in metal stand with easy angle adjustment and is compatible with Blues Radius III shock mount and/ Compass boom arm.
Yeti Nano (MSRP £89.99) will be available in four sleek designs including Shadow Grey, Vivid Blue, Red Onyx and Cubano Gold.
