Create great recordings and send them directly to your computer with Blue Microphone’s Yeti USB Microphone. The Yeti uses Blue Microphone’s proprietary tri-capsule technology to produce pristine, studio-quality recordings.

It features four different pattern settings so you can record vocals, instrumental music, podcasts, or interviews in ways that would normally require multiple microphones.

With simple controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, instant mute, and microphone gain, you’ll be creating exceptional recordings right out of the box.

Four Different Pattern Modes for Versatile Recording
  • Stereo mode: The stereo mode uses both the left and right channels, and is ideal for capturing a realistic, general sound image.
  • Cardioid mode: Well-suited to podcasts, sung vocals, and other voice work, cardioid mode records sound sources that are directly in front of the microphone. It delivers a rich, full-bodied sound.
  • Omnidirectional mode: Omnidirectional mode picks up sound equally from all directions. It is best used in situations when you want to capture the ambience of ‘being there’–like a live recording of a band’s performance.
  • Bidirectional mode: Bidirectional mode records from both the front and the rear of the microphone. It is ideal for capturing the nuance of a musical instrument, or recording an interview between two people.
Hassle-Free Setup

The Yeti requires no complicated drivers to operate; simply plug it into your computer’s USB port with the included USB cable, calibrate it with your operating system, and you’re ready to record.

Mark Ponzo – Vintage Cornet Recital – CD release

Vintage Cornet Recital CDVintage Cornet Recital (CD Release)

Mark Ponzo, Cornet
JeongSoo Kim, Piano

“Simply a delightful collection of “back in the day” cornet solo classics, performed beautifully by both players.”

In today’s world our ears are used to hearing the brighter sound of the trumpet, but back when these solos were first performed they were played on the more mellow sounding cornet. And Mark Ponzo’s warm cornet sound gives you an idea what it would have been like to hear the great cornetists of the time play these classics. And to round out the performances is JeongSoo Kim’s wonderfully sensitive and supportive piano accompaniment.

From the most lyric pieces to the most technically brilliant, Mark and JeongSoo play with sheen and sparkle that makes these pieces come alive for our 21st century ears to enjoy.

Highly recommended for all who would like to hear what a “Rock Star” cornet soloist would have played and sounded like “back in the day” – all with the clarity of today’s recording technology.

You can hear samples from all eleven selections and order the CD directly from Mark Ponzo’s website at:
