Blue Microphones is expanding its USB microphone family with the Yeti Nano, designed primarily for podcasting and streaming voiceover, that also makes for a convenient recording mic.
The Yeti Nano is a very affordable plug and play USB microphone, featuring dual condenser mic capsules and a zero-latency headphones output with volume control.
The Nano's two pickup patterns garner an impressive 24-bit/48kHz recording quality, which is certainly nothing to be sneezed at if you need a recording option on the road. Cardioid mode is optimised for recording sources directly in front of the mic, while omnidirectional mode is suited to recording sound surrounding the mic.
Like many pocket devices, the Yeti Nano is paired with Blue's Sherpa app, enabling you to adjust its settings and update it in software.
Blue Microphones is distributed in Australia by Innovative Music.
