Looks like Blue Mics decided to one up the Studio Projects LSM mic. The LSM featured a USB port and an XLR jack and although the Yeti Pro doesn’t come in Pretty Pretty Princess Pink like the LSM, it makes up for it in 25bit/196.khz res. Since I pretty much own every mic Blue makes, I would strongly suggest this one for the musician who just wants to lay down ideas.
The Yeti Pro is the world’s first USB microphone combining 24 bit/192 kHz digital recording resolution with analog XLR output. Featuring three custom condenser capsules and four different pattern settings, the Yeti Pro can capture digital audio with up to four times the clarity found on CDs. Plus, the Yeti Pro features a cutting-edge A-D converter chip and separate analog circuit path for usewith professional studio mixers and preamps. You also get a built-in headphone amplifier for zero-latency monitoring, and direct controls for headphone volume, pattern selection, mute, and microphone gain. So whether you record at home, in a studio (or in the Himalayas!), the Yeti Pro is your ultimate sound solution.
You can get this bad boy in late January for around $249
