Blue Microphones Tiki

Blue Microphones Tiki manual

  • What makes Tiki special is its advanced DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology. It’s so advanced we can only refer
    to it as voodoo. Tiki significantly reduces unwanted background noise like keyboard clicking, hard-drive and fan sounds,
    and ambient room noise, allowing the person on the other side of the conversation to hear you with exceptional clarity.
    On a conference call or chat, Tiki even automatically mutes itself whenever a voice isn’t detected, freeing you to do
    other tasks (like type!) without adding background noise to the conversation. Like we said, voodoo.
    But Tiki is more than just a great listener it’s a great recording microphone. With a tap of the mode selector, Tiki
    becomes a high fidelity microphone suitable for recording your vocals, instruments, podcasts, or narration.
    Tiki’s double-sided design allows it to be plugged into a typical laptop’s side-USB port. Make sure that one side or the
    other of Tiki is facing you during recording (see illustration, left). Tiki’s advanced technology will determine whether
    you are using the front or rear or both sides of the microphone. If you are unable to connect directly to a suitable USB
    port, you can use the included docking cable to position Tiki at a convenient location. Like any microphone, the closer
    you are to Tiki, the better your results will be.
    Say hello to Tiki, the first microphone that listens to you with the intelligence of human hearing.
    By focusing on desired sounds and minimizing background noise, Tiki dramatically improves the
    intelligibility and quality of chats, conference calls, and high fidelity recordings.
    Tiki is compact, durable, and can be plugged directly into the USB port on most any
    laptop, or, using its included docking cable, into any larger desktop computer.
    Tiki’s packaging doubles as a folding travel case that holds Tiki and the
    docking cable for easy portability.
    Hey, my Tiki won’t light up and appears not to be working.
    Make sure your computer meets Tiki’s requirements (see right). Also, be sure your computer supports a USB 2.0 powered port.
    Help! My Tiki keeps intermittently glowing orange!
    Don’t panic. In the default Intelligent Speech Mode, Tiki’s color will switch to orange when it’s muting the sound (when you’re
    not speaking).
    won’t notice any difference, but the person you’re talking to will appreciate the reduced background noise.
    I’m working on a music demo and I want to sound like a Guitar God. What mode should I record in?
    Set Tiki in the Natural Recording Mode (purple glow). Music, podcasts, and narration will all have a richer, fuller sound when recorded in this mode.
    My favorite place to use Tiki for Skype
    calls is
    noisy. How can I ensure even better noise-canceling quality?
    If you’re talking in a very loud environment, try using Tiki’s extended docking cable to position Tiki further away from the noise source and closer to your voice. Remember, the
    closer you can get to your Tiki, the better you’ll sound.
    The clear plastic packaging that your Tiki arrived in is 100% recyclable. It also makes a handy container for pens and
    pencils, a flower vase or even a mini desktop terrarium!

    speaking again, Tiki switches back to blue.
    To switch modes, tap the Mode Selector button to switch to Natural Recording Mode (mic glows purple) for
    recording vocals, instruments, podcasts and more.
