Combining three capsules and four different pattern settings, the Yeti is the ultimate tool for creating amazing recordings, directly to your computer. It can capture anything with a clarity and ease unheard of in a USB microphone.

Can the Blue Yeti be used with the iPad Air (latest gen iPad)?

The Blue Yeti works with the iPad Air straight through the "Lightning to USB Camera Adapter" for me. The Blue Yeti works with the iPad Air straight through the "Lightning to USB Camera Adapter" for me. Just make sure you plug the USB cable from the Yeti into the "Lightning to USB Camera Adapter" plug BEFORE plugging it into the iPad Air to avoid the "too much power is required" error. Also, if you plan on monitoring the audio input with headphones through the zero latency headphone jack ON THE MIC, plug in your headphones BEFORE plugging everything into the iPad, otherwise the "too much power" error will appear. I have not had to use an external USB hub following the method I just described, and hopefully it wasn't just blind luck. Good luck!

I haven't received my Blue Yeti yet, but I would think it would work fine with Photo Booth. Once th I haven't received my Blue Yeti yet, but I would think it would work fine with Photo Booth. Once the Yeti is plugged into the USB port on your Mac, simply go to System Preferences>Sound>Input. You should be able to see the Yeti listed there. Just highlight it, exit, and you're done. The Yeti is now your default microphone for all Mac-based programs.

They usually do not have a USB port and if they did, could not supply the power. If you need this microphone for videos, you could record the audio separately with a computer, and sync them up in post production.
