I recently made a thread Weird High Pitched Noises on Mic? | PC Help Forum
regarding the strange, robotic fast-like recordings that occur every time I plug in the Yeti via a powered USB. I also posted a video in there to demonstrate it so people can listen to it.
No matter what mic I use (I use a Blue Snowball & Logitech) the recordings sound off only when the Yeti gets plugged in. If the Yeti is not connected, the recordings on the Snowball and Logitech sound completely normal, regardless how many times I hit the record button. Once the Yeti gets plugged in, the recordings go way off.
This user named Antman claimed that the sound is something called an overdrive. He believes that the signal is amplified twice which explains the high pitch, robotic noise. His solution was to make sure the sample rate (Hz)/microphone boost or input was in its proper condition. So I did all of that and unfortunately that didn't solve the problem. So he told me that my Realtek High Defintion Audio was outdated. So I updated the sound card driver to the maximum and still couldn't resolve the problem. So he couldn't help me anymore
I just find it weird how my neighbor's laptop (uses Realtek too) is capable of recording the Blue Yeti without even over-driving it. Yet, whenever I plug it in to my desktop, the recordings go nuts regardless what mic I use. I even called a technician for the Blue Yeti and he couldn't figure out what was going on.
Do any of you have an idea on what this issue might be? All I know is that it is correlated to the Blue Yeti USB connection and affects all mics once plugged in. The only way to get rid of this corrupted recording is by either unplugging the Yeti and restarting the computer or sending it back to time when the Yeti was never installed via System Recovery. However, that doesn't resolve the problem because the problem is still there once the Yeti gets plugged in. Making the Blue Yeti and any other mics completely useless.
I'm trying to use the Yeti for my gameplay/music videos but without getting rid of those annoying recordings I can't use it at all. I would have no choice but send it back to Radioshack and get my money back. I don't want to return it but if I can't fix this anytime soon I have no choice.
