You can quickly select from each of Yeti Pro'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.
Like Having Four Mics in One
The Yeti Pro is like having four mics in one, thanks to its built-in pattern selector. Choose between four polar pattern settings for any home recording application. Select Stereo for capturing a realistic, two-channel stereo image. Cardiod is the most commonly used mode for basic recording and is useful in almost any situation, such as recording vocals, a podcast, voiceover work, and more. Omnidirectional mode is perfect for recording a group of musicians playing at the same time, or recording a conversation between multiple parties around a room such as a conference call. Choose Bidirectional for individual instruments, or for recording an interview with two or more guests.
Its versatile application along with simple plug-and-play functionality makes the Yeti Pro the only desktop microphone you'll ever need.

What Critics Are Saying About the Yeti Pro
"We loved the original Yeti -- especially as a terrific addition to any podcaster's arsenal. For the sequel, Blue Microphones made a great mic even better."
"... the results are quiet, clear audio recordings without the hiss associated with cheaper mics."
--The New York Times
"... if you seek a professional sound or are recording audio--voice or instrumental--that needs the best possible reproduction, then the Yeti Pro is a splendid choice and its ability to also interface with XLR audio equipment makes it a must-have for any digital roadie too."
--Ask Dave Taylor
