It can also be completely separated from its base in order to make traveling with it easier and to allow it to be used with a separate microphone stand. As such a lightweight, diminutive device, the Blue Yeti is incredibly easy to transport wherever you need to go.
The microphone is equipped with multiple tech-savvy features that enhance its ease of use and the sound of the finished product.
The Blue Yeti's infinitely positionable nature makes it incredibly easy to optimize sound from any source.
While on its stand, the microphone is able to be adjusted up and down as well as turned in any direction.
This allows the user to position the microphone where it is nearest to the sound that needs to be amplified.
Once you have adjusted the microphone to the position where the sound will be best optimized, you can twist the knobs attached to each side of the microphone to tighten the device into place and ensure that the Blue Yeti does not move during use.
The Blue Yeti microphone also includes an instant mute button, which allows you to pause a recording while in session and begin again when you are ready, and a gain control which changes the microphone's sensitivity depending on the volume and harshness of the sound being amplified or recorded.
Furthermore, the microphone has a standard headphone jack which, after headphones are attached, allows you to listen to the sound you're recording in real time and immediately make any needed adjustments with the microphone's easy controls.
Also, because the Blue Yeti is a USB microphone, it can be easily plugged into a computer and used for recording.
The Blue Yeti is the best USB microphone because it is compatible with both Mac and PC computers, as long as they are equipped with at least sixty-four MB of RAM and a system of Windows XP or Mac OS X 10.4.11 or any later versions.
One of the best aspects of the Blue Yeti microphone is its versatility in application.
It comes equipped with four pattern modes, each of which is specifically designed to optimize a certain type of sound.
