Blue Yeti Pro Professional Multi-Pattern USB/XLR Condenser Microphone
Blue Yeti Pro Professional Multi-Pattern USB/XLR Condenser Microphone Overview
Desktop or Studio, the Possibilities Are Endless
You can quickly select from each of Blue Yeti Pro’s four pattern settings (stereo, cardioid, omnidirectional, bidirectional) by simply rotating the pattern selector knob. The chart below shows each pattern’s symbol, sound source direction, and suggested recording applications.
The stereo mode uses both the left and right channels, and is ideal for capturing a realistic, general sound image.
Well-suited for podcasts, vocals, or game streaming, cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone. It delivers a rich, full-bodied sound.
Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from all directions. It’s best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of ‘being there’—like a live recording of a band’s performance.
Bidirectional mode records from both the front and the rear of the microphone. It’s ideal for capturing the nuance of a musical instrument, or recording an interview between two people.
Stand and Cables Included
The Yeti Pro features a custom base, including a threaded mic stand mount with cable management. A USB cable and a stereo XLR breakout cable are also included in the box.
