Blue Microphones and Logitech, aka makers of one of the best USB mics out there, has announced that its impressive voice modulation software, Blue VO!CE, will be available to all Blue Yeti, Yeti X, and Yeti Nano microphones, and not just its premium sets.
This means you don't have to spend nearly $200 on a higher-end Yeti microphone to mod your voice to sound like a classic radio host, robot, or demon. So, if you're using something like the Yeti Nano, which is Blue's best budget mic, you'll have full access to VO!CE's suite of audio settings. You can add voice effects like reverb or even a background chorus, perfect for content creators who like to sing on camera or adding some spice to your DnD Discord game.
VO!CE is accessible through the Logitech G HUB app; from here, you can adjust gain, pitch, ambiance and get as granular as you'd like with how your voice sounds and save the results.
One of my favorite VO!CE features is not the use of an exclam in the name, but the massive library of user-created voice profiles for pretty much any type of recording scenario. It's an excellent resource for anyone who doesn't feel like creating their own, and would rather have someone else do the hard work and still sound great.
Best microphone for gaming: make sure you're heard
Best webcams: be seen while you get your stream on
Best capture cards: lessen the load with a dedicated card
Sadly the Yeti Snowballs, Blue's tiny round mics, will apparently not be getting the VO!CE treatment, which is a shame since they are pretty nice entry-level podcast mics. Another more notable omission is the World of Warcraft-themed voice modulation filters that are only available on the Blue Yeti X World of Warcraft Edition Yeti X. I mean, I can think of at least one reason why Blue did this, and I don't blame them. You can always make your own orc voice if you're so inclined.
Blue VO!CE is available via the Logitech G HUB app for Mac and Windows. Just plug in one of your Blue Yeti mics and start messing around with some fun filters.
