    Just curious if anyone here has experience with the Blue Yeti, or the Blue Yeti Pro mic's?

    I've heard YouTube videos with guitars, but no brass instruments. Curious if this would make a good USB type of recording mic for trumpets.

    In general,I stay the heck away from any audio gear with the word "Pro" in the model name.

    The "Pro" model simply has an XLR connection for use with sound boards, in addition to the USB output.

    If you're only going to use it with your computer, the Apogee One interface works great. Once you set your levels, the integrated mic sounds great, and is easy to control.

    I had a Snowball and it didn't work well for trumpet at all. I now have a Tascam iM2 and so far it seems useful.

    The main issue with desktop mics is that they are tuned to voices, which means that they won't react well to high, low or loud noises. They're fine for listening back to see if you're doing well, but in my experience, they're not good enough to post online.
