Blue has a new Yeti microphone on the market. The popular brand is one of the leading choices for podcasters, streamers, and YouTube personalities, and the latest Yeti X microphone is designed for all three of those jobs. The Yeti X features new Blue VO!CE technology, which enables content creators to dial up professional vocal effects and custom presets at the push of a button, making it easier than ever to add professional sound design to your content. According to the company, the four capsule condenser microphone array delivers exceptional focus and clarity, and there’s a high-res LED meter on the front of the device that gives users visual, real-time feedback for vocal levels. The popular multi-function smart knob provides instant control over essential mic functions, and it’s ready to ship this fall.

“We’re excited to introduce Yeti X with Blue VO!CE technology and continue the evolution of our renowned lineup of USB mics,” said John Maier, president and CEO, Blue Microphones. “We created Yeti X based on feedback from content creators all over the world, who need fast and easy-to-use tools that help them sound their very best. Yeti X with Blue VO!CE gives creators the ability to quickly and easily customize their sound using high-quality effects and presets. Additionally, new features like high-res LED metering and a multi-function smart knob make it easier than ever to deliver professional results for gaming, streaming, and podcasting.”

One of the best features of the Yeti X is the plug ‘n play setup for both Mac and PC. You’ll also be able to download the advanced Blue VO!CE audio software, which includes a suite of broadcast vocal tools and effects, that makes it easier than ever to achieve professional on-stream sound quality. If you’re a content creator, you can quickly access and select a variety of professionally-tuned presets for broadcast, radio voice, male and female voices, and effects such as crisp and modern, warm and vintage, and more through the settings. In addition, Blue VO!CE gives creators access to professional effects including noise reduction, expander, gate, de-esser, EQ, compression and limiter.

Yeti X was designed for broadcast-quality sound for professional-level gaming as well, for both Twitch and Mixer streaming. The mic is also a top choice for podcasting and YouTube productions.

You can also use the built in functions for different setup choices. Cardioid mode captures sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone, omni mode picks up sound equally from all around the mic, bidirectional mode records from both the front and the rear of the microphone, and stereo mode uses both the left and right channels for capturing immersive audio experiences.

The Yeti X also features an 11-segment LED meter that goes from green to red, so streamers can check and adjust their vocal levels at a glance and easily maintain professional sound quality while live on camera. An illuminated multi-function smart knob provides precise control over mic gain, mute and headphone volume. The smart knob also controls the blend of microphone signal and computer sound, so creators can quickly adjust the amount of computer audio versus microphone audio that is heard in the headphones.

Blue VO!CE is accessible exclusively through Logitech’s free, easy-to-use G HUB platform, enabling content creators to manage mic gain, headphone volume, monitoring preferences, and pickup pattern selections right from their desktop. Streamers can also match the color and design of their desks by personalizing the color of Yeti X’s LED lights. Yeti X is also compatible with the Blue Sherpa companion app, which features quick and direct control options from your desktop to help you get the most from your mic. If you’re a streamer, you can pair Yeti X with Blue’s professional broadcast accessories to transform their desktops into broadcast studios, including Compass premium broadcast boom arm and Radius III shockmount.

The Yeti X is expected to be available at US retailers in October for $169. You can check out the entire Blue lineup of mics and gear on the company’s official product page right here on Amazon.
