Blue Microphones Updates Sherpa App to Allow Multiple USB Microphones

Blue has simplified the process for using multiple USB microphones simultaneously on a personal computer.

Blue said Sherpa, a new desktop control app, works with its Yeti, Snowball and Snowball iCE microphones.

Sherpa allows users to control parameters such as microphone gain, mute and headphone volume from the desktop. It also allows updating of the microphone's firmware.

The new Sherpa update allows multiple Blue USB mics to be used at the same time. Users can use separate microphones for podcast hosts and guests, live streaming with multiple mics or do multiple mics with instruments. The new update also offers full desktop control of mic parameters.

The Sherpa installer works with both Mac and Windows operating systems and is free. Once set up, plug in the microphones and Sherpa will automatically recognize them and display each mic’s serial number.
