This morning Blue Microphones announced their new Yeti model which is apparently the world’s first THX certified microphone. But what’s more useful is the mic’s ‘triple condenser capsule array’ which allows it to be switched between four different pickup patterns including stereo, cardioid, omni-directional and bi-directional. It’s also got a high quality built-in analog-to-digital converter (it does connect to your PC via USB after all) as well as its own headphone jack for zero-latency monitoring of what you’re recording. With an MSRP of $149.99 it might not be the most affordable choice if you’re just going to use it with Skype, but if you’re spitting out podcasts on a weekly basis or doing any kind of prosumer recording with your PC it sounds like it could really up your game.
