There’s an old saying in the voiceover business: “If you want to book a gig, go on vacation.” Inevitably, anytime you leave town you’re bound to get a job. So, alas, this holiday season, I’m on vacation with no gear at all with me and yes, I get the call. Fortunately, I had my laptop…and a Best Buy in the area. I jumped on in and found this gem: the Yeti USB Microphone by Blue Microphones. Easy plug and play capabilities produced a perfect recording. The Yeti saved the day! Thank you, Blue Microphones!
A little more about Yeti from their website: “Create unparalleled recordings with your computer using Blue’s best-selling Yeti family of USB microphones. Thanks to our proprietary tri-capsule technology, Yeti microphones produce pristine, studio-quality recordings with legendary ease. And four different pattern settings offer incredible flexibility so you can record vocals, instrumental music, podcasts, audio for video, interviews, or even cryptozoology lectures in ways that would normally require multiple microphones. Whether you’re recording at home, on the road, or in the Himalayas, Yeti helps you produce studio-quality recordings every time.”
