Blue Yeti "DX" profile ?

I realize that getting a good mic profile requires testing with one's own voice. However, I wonder if people using a Blue Yeti USB mic can share their custom settings on SmartSDR's TX EQ ? I have good rag chew audio reports but would like to now create a better "DX" mic profile for this microphone. Your settings could be a useful starting point.

    I use the Blue Yeti X (the new model). I do not use the internal EQ in radio but rather the software that gets install from Blue Yeti. Works fine, including the EQ and compressor. I just narrow down the bandwidth if trying to **** a pileup.

    I primarily use the mic for remote operation, including one station we have up in Hawaii.

    For any mic, cut before boost. Generally for DX work, set bandwidth to less than 3k. Cut below 300 or so, and cut above 3k or so to concentrate power in the frequency range that maximizes intelligibility.

    Thanks Dave and John, good info. I have both the old Blue Yeti and the new one.

    I really like the Blue Yeti X for remote operating from either my PC, laptop, or iPad Pro.

    It also works great on Zoom.
