A:AnswerHello Richard, the $99 model is the Yeti Nano, while the $129 model is the original Yeti. There are a few differences between the two models. The biggest difference is that the Yeti is a 3 capsule design that can go between 4 different polar patterns: Cardioid (in front of the mic), Bi-Directional (front and back), Omnidirectional (all around), Stereo (Left/Right). The Yeti Nano has 2 capsules and can switch between Cardioid and Omnidirectional polar patterns. For interviews, you would use the Omnidirectional pattern on the Nano and Omnidirectional or Bi-Directional patterns on the Yeti.
A:AnswerThere are two things that could help. First is making sure your microphone is on the cardiod mode. While this mode is enabled, make sure to position your microphone with the volume knob facing your mouth. Your voice will sound the clearest this way BUT also ignoring any sounds directly behind your microphone. So the best position for the microphone will be in-between you and your keyboard. Secondly, buying a microphone arm holder will be great to minimize noise. What this allows you to do is position your microphone very close to your mouth, 1-5 inches away. This will let you turn down your microphone’s sensitivity (otherwise known as gain) which will pickup less noise around the blue yeti nano, such as your keyboard. I hope this helps.
