Blue Introduces Yeti Nano USB Mic for Recording and Streaming

September 3 2018, 00:20
Fresh from the Logitech acquisition announcement, Blue announced a new model to its popular USB Microphone family, now expanded with a compact desktop version that helps today's broadcasters, podcasters and bloggers to easily record and stream with high-quality audio. The new Blue Yeti Nano features two condenser microphone capsules and a 24-bit/48kHz audio interface buil-in with direct output for monitoring without latency. The microphone features selectable cardioid and omnidirectional pickup patterns and is optimized for voice.

The new Yeti Nano is a premium USB microphone designed for broadcast-quality podcasting, YouTube productions, game streaming, Skype/VoIP calls and voiceover work. Inspired by the Blue Yeti microphone, the Yeti Nano features the same standard of sound quality that Blue is known for, a compact design, and plug 'n play operation for instant streaming with a PC or Mac. The premium finish looks great on camera and on any desktop. With a no-latency headphone output and controls for pickup pattern selection, headphone volume, and mic mute, the Yeti Nano is an essential mic for anyone working with a computer.

"With Yeti Nano, content producers can easily record and stream with the signature studio-quality sound of Yeti, in a new compact and streamlined design that fits in perfectly on any desktop,” says Tommy Edwards, director of product management at Blue Microphones. “Whether you’re gaming, making a business call, or recording something new, you’ll be heard loud and clear with incredible sound quality, every time.”

The Yeti Nano offers studio-quality sound, with two proprietary condenser mic capsules that are specifically tuned to give exceptional presence and detail to a voice signal. It supports high-quality 24-bit/48kHz recording and offers plug ‘n play performance with a wide range of software and operating systems, making it versatile and easy-to-use in any environment.

Featuring two pickup-pattern controls directly on the mic, Yeti Nano gives you the flexibility to record a single source, or multiple sources at once. Cardioid mode records sources that are directly in front of the microphone, and is perfect for podcasts with a single host, game streaming, Skype calls, voiceovers, vocal performances, or instruments. Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from every direction, and is ideal for conference calls with multiple participants or a multi-person interview on a podcast.

The new Yeti Nano comes with the all-new Blue Sherpa companion app, which features quick and direct control options from the computer's desktop, allowing users to mute and unmute the mic and headphones, fine-tune gain and levels, switch polar patterns, and change sample rates — all within the software and without touching the microphone, avoiding unnecessary handling noises. Sherpa will also download firmware updates directly to the Yeti Nano, seamlessly keeping the unit up to date. This app will soon also support all Blue’s full USB mic lineup.

Finally, the new Yeti Nano features a built-in metal stand with easy angle adjustment, and is compatible with the company's existing Radius III shockmount and Compass boom arm - both ideal accessories for quality productions. It ships in four colors including Shadow Grey, Vivid Blue, Red Onyx and Cubano Gold for a suggested retail price of $99.99, and is available now.
