Yeti Nano, Blue's new USB microphone

Blue launches cheaper version of the Yeti USB microphone for Macs and PCs

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?
