4 settings. Endless possibilities
You can quickly select from each of Yeti’s four pattern settings (stereo, cardioid, omnidirectional, bidirectional) by simply rotating the pattern selector knob. The chart below shows each pattern’s symbol, sound source direction, and suggested recording applications.
For a more in-depth look at each pattern, please refer to the detailed descriptions and frequency response charts further down the page.
The Stereo mode is great for capturing a realistic stereo image. To start, point the microphone at the sound source that you wish to have to record (the “”front”” of the microphone is the side of the microphone with the Blue Microphones Logo). Depending on the instrument and/or sound that you wish to have to achieve, place the grill of the microphone anywhere from 2 inches to several feet in front of the sound source. By centering the sound source, you’ll get equal amounts of signal in both the left and right channels. If you wish to have a little more of the signal in the right channel, move the sound source a little to the right side of the mic (as if one is at the back of the microphone), and if you wish to have a little more of the signal in the left channel, move the sound source to the left (as if you are at the back of the microphone). On the other hand, you’ll record everything as centered as conceivable, and easily adjust the position when you’re mixing the recording. If you wish to have the sound in the right or left channel only, you should try using the cardioid, bidirectional or the omnidirectional setting, and use your software to hard-pan the sound to the left or the right.
