We loved the original Yeti -- especially as a terrific addition to any podcaster’s arsenal. For the sequel, Blue Microphones made a great mic even better. The Yeti Pro targets singers, musicians, and anyone who needs a studio-quality microphone that hooks to their computer. This second-gen model keeps the easy USB connection of its predecessor and adds an analog stereo XLR out so it now works with all sorts of pro gear, too.
Editor-in-Chief Paul Curthoys took some time out with Blue Microphones at CES 2011 to chat about the new Yeti Pro. It's got all of the same features as its predecessor, plus an added Analog XLR port so that professionals can plug it into an actual mixing board. And for singers looking for the highest quality sound for their next single, the Yeti does 24-bit/192kHz recording. Check out the video for a quick look at the mic.
Bigfoot may get the majority of the media’s attention, especially after his stint on The Six Million Dollar Man. But the real star in the half-man/half-bear/monkey/gorilla arena is the Yeti. While Bigfoot is out stomping his footprint into mud, the Blue Microphone Yeti (shown left at very close to its actual size) is doing a bang-up job recording your podcasts, band practices, and events. Pretty good for a mythical creature--er, an affordably priced USB mic.
