HOW TO RECORD INSTRUMENTS WITH BLUE YETI MIC
You’re all plugged in and ready to rock. Now it’s just about nailing the recording. Here are some tips and tricks for making your instruments sound great with your Blue Yeti mic.
TIP 1: MAKE SURE YOU’RE ALL TUNED UP
You’ll also want to make sure your recording environment is nice and quiet.
TIP 2: MAKE SURE THE BLUE LOGO FACES YOUR INSTRUMENT
The mic records from the sides, as opposed to the top, so you should never point the microphone directly at the sound source.
TIP 3: TURN THE GAIN DOWN
Even if you like some gain on your guitar, you’ll want to turn the gain down on your Yeti mic. This is so the sound doesn’t peak.
TIP 4: SET PATTERN TO CARDIOID MODE
There are a few different settings on the Yeti, and you’ll want to pick the one that’s right for you. Cardioid mode is the best for recording a musical instrument. You can also try Stereo.
Other settings are useful for other types of recording and content creation. Bidirectional is great for capturing an interview or podcast. Omnidirectional is perfect for capturing a live band practice, performance, or show.
SO… READY TO ROCK?
The Yeti microphone is a versatile piece of equipment that beautifully captures you and your instrument. Once you’re cued in, the only thing left to do is break the internet with your amazing talent.
