THE Blue is known for its professional audio equipment and also for its line of USB home microphones, some of which are preferred by YouTubers and podcasters around the world – preference, by the way, which was one of the main reasons for the acquisition of the manufacturer by Logitech a few weeks ago.
Blue is now presenting a smaller and cheaper version of its flagship, the Yeti microphone. This is the Yeti Nano:
With a similar design, but about 6 centimeters lower and almost half a kilo lighter than the traditional Yeti, Blue’s new creation nevertheless brings a good part of the technologies and resources that made the company’s main product so popular. The metal body has adjustable angles and, internally, we have two condenser capsules and 24-bit / 48kHz recording support, for captures with a professional appearance (or … sound) at any time.
We have two recording modes, the cardioid (which captures a single source, coming from one direction) or omnidirectional (which captures all sounds in 360º and serves for group recordings, for example); as with the larger Yeti, there is also a “mute” button and headphone output with volume control, for you to get immediate feedback on sound capture.
The USB connection is plug & play and brings zero latency, working with Macs or PCs without distinction; Blue also offers accompanying software, Sherpa, which brings additional settings and features a click away, as well as software updates for your microphone.
The Yeti Nano is available in four colors (Shadow Gray, Vivid Blue, Red Onyx and Cuban Gold) and goes for $ 100, already on sale at Amazon’s American store. Nice, isn’t it?
