Blue Microphones has announced the new Yeti X USB microphone for gaming, streaming and podcasting.
Yeti X features Blue VO!CE technology, which enables content creators to dial up professional vocal effects and custom presets at the push of a button. The four capsule condenser microphone array is designed to deliver superior focus and clarity, with high-res LED metering providing visual, real-time feedback for vocal levels, and a multi-function smart knob.
Yeti X is plug ‘n play on Mac and PC and includes advanced Blue VO!CE audio software, a suite of broadcast vocal tools and effects designed to achieve professional on-stream sound quality. Creators can quickly access presets for broadcast, radio voice, male and female voices, and professional effects including noise reduction, expander, gate, de-esser, EQ, compression and limiter.
Yeti X was custom tuned to deliver superior, broadcast-quality sound for professional-level gaming, Twitch and Mixer streaming, podcasting and YouTube productions. A four-capsule condenser array provides clearer, more focused audio for Yeti X’s four pickup patterns. Cardioid mode captures sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone, omni mode picks up sound equally from all around the mic, bidirectional mode records from both the front and the rear of the microphone, and stereo mode uses both the left and right channels for capturing for capturing immersive audio experiences.
Yeti X 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.
“We’re excited to introduce Yeti X with Blue VO!CE technology and continue the evolution of our renowned lineup of USB mics,” said John Maier, president and CEO, Blue Microphones. “We created Yeti X based on feedback from content creators all over the world, who need fast and easy-to-use tools that help them sound their very best. Yeti X with Blue VO!CE gives creators the ability to quickly and easily customise their sound using high quality effects and presets. 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 expected to be available at UK retailers in October 2019 at an SRP of £159.99.
