A simple, yet powerfully effective tool for podcasting and content creation, the Blue Microphones Yeticaster is a USB microphone bundle offering a broadcast-quality sound, a rugged design, and multiple recording modes to suit your needs. The mic included in this package, offered here in a blackout finish, has become a go-to for people who record podcasts or who stream on YouTube, Twitch, Facebook Live, and other similar platforms.
The Yeticaster includes the Yeti, but foregoes the desktop stand, instead providing a rugged COMPASS boom arm that clamps to your desk as well as a Radial III shockmount. These hardware accessories eliminate handling noise, facilitate smooth and silent adjustments of mic positioning during recording, and improve the look of your environment; if your content has any visual component, viewers will instantly recognize the professional look that a desk-affixing boom arm and a vintage-style shockmount provide.
Fits Your Needs
This mic is perfect for recording directly to computers, be they mac or windows systems. With the right, separately available adapters, you can also record with Android and iOS devices.
All the Control You Need, Built Right In
The Yeticaster comes with the Yeti mic, which features controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute, and microphone gain. This puts you in charge of every level of the recording process. If you're experiencing distortion or feedback while recording an especially loud source, simply adjust the microphone's sensitivity with the gain control. Or, if you want to take a break in the middle of a podcast, use the instant mute button.
Essential Accessories for the Podcasting Studio
The Yeticaster substitutes the usual desktop stand with essential hardware accessories for professional podcasting. A Blue Radius III Shockmount is included, giving you a vintage-style suspension design to isolate the Yeti from noise, shock, and vibrations. The Blue COMPASS is also supplied to give your podcasting studio a rugged mic-mounting solution and a professional appearance. This premium tube-style desktop boom arm attaches to your desk and offers both internal springs and built-in cable management. It provides a smooth and quiet operation.
Multiple Mic Modes for Any Kind of Content
The multiple mic modes allow virtually any kind of content creator to do their thing with precision and ease. Use cardioid to reject off axis noise, minimizing room tone while you speak directly into the mic. If you're recording with one other guest, select the Figure-8 polar pattern; now you can speak into the front, while the guest speaks into the back, and the sides of the mic will reject unwanted room noise. Choose omnidirectional to pickup audio all around the capsule, which is great for work that features multiple voices. Finally, a stereo mode is wonderful for ASMR content, or for recording music. A desktop stand and a USB cable are included.
3.5mm Headphone Jack with Latency-Free Monitoring
The mic has an integrated headphone amp with an independent gain control for latency-free monitoring. Simply plug your headphones into the mic's 3.5mm input, and you'll hear your broadcast-quality audio in all its glory.
Broadcast-Quality Digital Capture
The mic records audio at 16-bit / 48 kHz, giving you the broadcast standard for media playback. On the audio side, the tri-capsule design ensures that whatever mode you choose, the mic will pick up a clear and present sound.
Simple to Set Up
Just plug the Yeti into your computer's USB port with the included USB cable, select it as a device in your recording software, and you're ready to get to work. The Yeti runs off your device's power, so no need to plug it into a wall. With driver-free operation, you won't have to download pesky software to get it up and running.
