Sensational Sound, Diverse Options
Podcasters, streamers, or ASMRtists in need of a multipurpose mic for producing high-quality audio will find their match with the Blue Microphones Snowball USB Mic with Tripod Stand. Boasting a lustrous textured white finish, this uniquely designed 2-capsule mic connects directly to your laptop or computer through USB with no extra software to download — you can use it the moment you plug in! Sweetwater sound engineers love the ability to choose from two polar patterns, cardioid and omnidirectional, to fit any creative vision. But the options don’t stop there: you can also connect to iOS devices, and separately available adapters allow you to cart your Snowball anywhere.
Surprising sonic capabilities
With its dual pickup patterns, the Blue Snowball USB Mic will be a welcome addition to your recording equipment. Use the cardioid function to capture crisp audio directly in front of the mic for fantastically clean ASMR sessions. Conversely, pick the omnidirectional pattern for multiple speakers in a podcast. If you use the cardioid pattern, check out the -10dB pad mode: recording loud audio with this feature changes the game by ensuring your audio stays sharp without distortion. No matter which polar pattern you use, the Yeti records it all at an impressive 16-bit/44kHz audio resolution.
