According to the folks at Blue Microphones, the manufacturer of the Blue Yeti Microphone, “The Yeti is the most advanced and versatile multi-pattern USB microphone available anywhere. Combining three capsules and four different pattern settings, the Yeti is the ultimate tool for creating amazing recordings, directly to your computer.”
That quote sums up the microphone in one. It is an ultimate “pro-sumer” microphone integrating the great features of a professional microphone in a consumer USB interface, requiring none but simply a USB-compatible computer.
This microphone is a great option for those podcasting, and have been used by amateurs and professionals alike on the radio.
