Blue Introduces Yeti Nano USB Mic for Recording and Streaming | Business Wire

WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. & LAUSANNE, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Blue, a 20-year leading innovator in audio technology and design, today

announced the Yeti Nano, a premium USB microphone designed for

broadcast-quality podcasting, YouTube productions, game streaming,

Skype/VoIP calls and voiceover work. Inspired by the #1-selling Blue

Yeti microphone, Yeti Nano features legendary Blue sound quality, a

compact design, and plug ‘n play operation for instant streaming with

your 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, Yeti Nano is the

essential mic for today’s broadcaster.

“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,” said 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.”

Yeti Nano delivers Blue studio-quality sound, with two proprietary

condenser mic capsules that are specifically tuned to give your voice

exceptional presence and detail. Yeti Nano supports high-quality

24-bit/48kHz recording, so you can give your podcast or video truly

professional production value. Plus, Yeti Nano 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.

Yeti Nano comes with the all-new Blue Sherpa companion app, which

features quick and direct control options from your desktop to help you

get the most from your mic. Mute and unmute your mic and headphones,

fine-tune gain and levels, switch polar patterns, and change sample

rates—all within the software. Sherpa will also download firmware

updates directly to your Yeti Nano, seamlessly keeping you up to date.

Sherpa support for Blue’s full USB mic lineup is coming soon.

Yeti Nano features a built-in metal stand with easy angle adjustment,

and is compatible with Blue’s Radius III shockmount and Compass boom arm.
