CES 2011: Blue Microphones Announce Yeti Pro
A week before NAMM 2011, revered microphone manufacturer Blue has announced the Yeti Pro.
Yeti Pro is the first USB microphone that brings 24 bit/192 kHz recording resolution, the highest digital resolution on the market, together with an analog XLR output.
Like the Yeti, Yeti Pro features Blue's condenser capsules set in a proprietary triple capsule array.
This gives the flexibility of four recording patterns ideal for a variety of recording situations from desktop to studio.
"With Yeti Pro's high resolution capabilities, we are taking USB microphones to a truly professional level, while bringing its multi-pattern versatility to a studio setting," said John Maier, CEO of Blue Microphones.
"Yeti Pro not only breaks the quality/price barrier by bringing 192kHz resolution to our popular line of desktop USB products"
"with the addition of stereo analog out, our users can now take the triple capsule array, and the variety of options it brings, into more traditional studio environments, such as professional broadcast, podcasting, home studios and more."
The focus on the Yeti Pro is bringing high end mic quality to USB recording.
With a resolution of 24bit/192kHz, Yeti Pro captures audio with four times greater detail than CD-quality audio.
Unlike most USB microphones, which are limited to fixed recording resolutions, Yeti Pro features a next generation analog-digital converter chip.
This allows a range of recording resolutions, from 22kHz up to 192kHz and common sampling rates in-between.
Designed with the audio principles of Blue's award-winning professional studio microphones, Yeti Pro features separate circuit boards to maintain the integrity of the analog and digital signal paths and discrete electronic components to maintain the highest signal quality.
For analog recording, Yeti Pro also includes an XLR stereo breakout cable for simple attachment to analog equipment.
Building upon the technology in the No. 1-selling Yeti, Yeti Pro offers Blue's custom condenser capsules in a triple array with four distinct recording patterns (cardioid, omni, stereo, bi-directional) for both digital and analog recording.
Like Yeti, Yeti Pro also maintains zero-latency headphone output with volume control for direct monitoring, adjustable gain control and a digital mute button.
The Yeti's angle can be adjusted on its custom-designed desk stand or secured to a stand with its standard mic thread.
Like all of Blue's USB microphones, Yeti Pro is compatible with both Mac and PC.Posted on 5 Jan 2011 08:44 to category : Instruments News
