Using Blue Microphone's proprietary tri-capsule technology, Blackout Yeti can record sounds that range from the barely audible to the deafeningly loud—all without a loss of fidelity. Depending on what kind of sound you’re recording, you can choose from four distinct pattern modes:
The stereo mode uses both the left and right channels and is ideal for capturing a realistic, general sound image.
Well-suited for podcasts, vocals, or game streaming, cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone. It delivers a rich, full-bodied sound
Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from all directions. It’s best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of "being there"—like a live recording of a band's performance
Bidirectional mode records from both the front and the rear of the microphone. It’s ideal for capturing the nuance of a musical instrument or recording an interview between two people.
With controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute, and microphone gain located directly on the mic, Blackout Yeti puts you in charge of every level of the recording process. If you’re experiencing distortion or feedback while recording an especially loud source, simply adjust the microphone's sensitivity with the gain control. Or, if you want to take a break in the middle of a podcast, use the instant mute button.
