Blue Microphones is part of the Logitech International portfolio of brands. Regular listeners will be familiar with the range of microphones such as the Snowball and Yeti microphones. But today we will be talking about the release of the Yeti X.
We are living in a digital world where all generations are creating content and streaming online. Gamers are streaming on Twitch. Vloggers have made a name for themselves on YouTube, entrepreneurs stream Facebook and LinkedIn Live is bringing waking up the boardroom to the possibilities around streaming online too.
As a result of this explosion in content creation, Blue has announced the Yeti X. A Professional USB Microphone with Blue VO!CE Software for Creators and Streamers which enables content creators to dial-up professional vocal effects and custom presets at the push of a button.
A four capsule condenser microphone array delivers exceptional focus and clarity, high-res LED metering provides visual, real-time feedback for vocal levels, and a multi-function smart knob provides instant control over essential mic functions.
Combining traditional Blue audio quality with innovative new features, Yeti X is the ultimate tool for creators who want to deliver professional content and build their audience. Additionally, new features like high-res LED metering and a multi-function smart knob make it easier than ever to deliver professional results for gaming, streaming, and podcasting.”
Yeti X is plug and play on Mac and PC and includes advanced Blue VO!CE audio software, a suite of broadcast vocal tools and effects that makes it easier than ever to achieve professional on-stream sound quality. Creators can quickly access and select a variety of professionally-tuned presets for broadcast, radio voice, male and female voices, and effects such as crisp and modern, warm and vintage and more.
In addition, Blue VO!CE gives creators access to professional effects including noise reduction, expander, gate, de-esser, EQ, compression and limiter. The Yeti X also features an 11-segment LED meter that goes from green to red, so streamers can check and adjust their vocal levels at a glance and easily maintain professional sound quality while live on camera.
An illuminated multi-function smart knob provides precise control over mic gain, mute, and headphone volume. The smart knob also controls the blend of microphone signal and computer sound, so creators can quickly adjust the amount of computer audio versus microphone audio that is heard in the headphones.
Blue VO!CE is accessible exclusively through Logitech’s free, easy-to-use G HUB platform, enabling content creators to manage mic gain, headphone volume, monitoring preferences, and pickup pattern selections right from their desktop.
Streamers can also match the color and design of their desks by personalizing the color of Yeti X’s LED lights. Yeti X is also compatible with the Blue Sherpa companion app, which features quick and direct control options from your desktop to help you get the most from your mic.
