The best USB microphone?


Hi and welcome to Craig Media Labs one
minute product review. Today we show you the Blue Yeti USB microphone. This is a
very nice tool for creating amazing recordings no matter what source or
environment it can capture anything and we’ll show you why in a second. First the
Blue Yeti costs about 179.- but there are also cheaper offers around. So why is
this mic so nice? Because it has an innovative triple capsule array. That
means it’s like three microphones in one and they can be combined in different
ways so the Blue Yeti offer a total of four different operation modes. Stereo:
this mode is great for capturing a realistic stereo image. This mode here I
call it the “Cardi mode” is the most commonly used mode. The sound directly in
front of the microphone is picked up while the sound and the rear and the
sides of the microphone is not. Omnidirectional: omnidirectional means that
the microphone picks up sound equally from all directions. It captures the
ambience of being there. Bidirectional: bidirectional means that the microphone
picks up sound at the front and rear while the sounds to the sides are not
picked up. The blue Yeti microphone comes in a lot of different color variations.
We have here the platinum model but you can have it also in these colors. On the
frontside the mic has a mute button and the volume control. On the rear there is
a gain control and the knob to choose the pattern or operation mode and on the
underside there is a mini jack headphone output and the USB connector. The mic
comes with a heavy desk stand but you can remove it and put the mic on a
standard microphone studio mount. The mic connects to your computer with one
simple USB cable. There are no drivers to install simply plug the Blue Yeti into
your PC or Mac and record something
