Blue Mic – Yeti Professional USB Microphone

Exciting day today! I went and picked up a new Microphone for video voiceovers, music production and general recording needs. I got the Blue Mic Yeti USB microphone. This Microphone is a beast. It weighs quite a bit which is what you want in a desktop mic, feels nice and sturdy. It looks great and sounds amazing.

With 4 separate polar patterns this is one very functional USB microphone with a lot of different uses. As I mentioned I’ll mainly be using it for voiceover work on screencasts, how-to video’s, etc and music production but if I catch the podcasting bug (it might happen) I’ll be well equipped to tackle the challenge.
