Need help with microphones, connecting to SB Ti HD soundcard.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone. :bigsmile_face:  

 

Please I am in need of help! I'm planning to stream on Twitch sometime this summer. I'm working with a SoundBlaster X-FI Titanium HD sound card and AKG K712 Pro headphones. I'm thinking about purchasing a Blue Yeti Pro microphone. The thing is, I don't think the Blue Yeti Pro will connect to the Ti HD sound card. I believe the Yeti Pro uses USB or XLR outputs. The Ti HD uses analog or optical. 

 

How can I connect the Blue Yeti Pro to the Ti HD sound card?  Do I need to buy a mixer? A converter? If so, which one? or should I consider other microphones?

 

This is for gaming, streaming, occasional singing, and talking smack.  :etysmile:

 

Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

I'm thinking you should get a microphone with a analog output.

You think so? But I really like how the Blue Yeti Pro looks. What mic do you recommend?

Not knowledgeable enough about Mics to know what to recommend.

Samson usually seems to offer decent to good quality, for a low price, with their audio products.
