Tips and notes:

  • Connect the Yeti directly to your computer with the supplied USB cable (avoid USB hubs or multipliers)
  • The Yeti is a side-address microphone. A side-address microphone accepts sound from an angle perpendicular to the mic—as opposed to a front-address mic
  • To connect the blue yeti to your iPad you will need the lightning (or 30 pin, depending on which iPad) to digital camera adapter and a powered USB hub. (Adaptor not included)
  • As there are so many different software packages that are compatible with the Yeti, consult your software’s manual, user forums and technical help lines.
