RODE PODCASTER LARGE-DIAPHRAGM DYNAMIC MIC WITH USB CONNECTIVITY FOR PODCASTING
Seamless integration was the idea, and it was obtained by creating a studio dynamic microphone with unparalleled A/D converters, so that the microphone can be plugged into any computer with no in/out boxes, no expensive computer pre-amps, just a USB cable.
The Podcaster offers an end-address configuration, the clarity of RØDE's tailored-for-voice frequency response, an ‘ON' L.E.D, a direct headphone amp, and of course very low self noise.
The microphone comes complete with a 3M USB cable. Optional extras include a shock mounting system and soon to be released Anglepoise style table mount arm.
It's a must for any musician on the road or in the project studio, but the Podcaster is going to offer solutions to more than just musicians.
The mic opens up possibilities for anyone who records audio-from podcasters, journalists and students to business people adding audio files to websites and multimedia presentations.
Create your own radio show, or let us do it for you, as we have even developed a website to host and broadcast podcasts for RØDE Podcaster customers.
The RODE Podcaster microphone is based on the Rode Broadcaster microphone, winner of the Radio World/US National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) "What's Cool" award. The Rode Broadcaster has become an industry standard when studio sound quality is required for on-air applications. The Podcaster mic was specifically designed for computer recording applications where wide frequency response and low distortion are demanded. The Podcaster makes digital recording "plug and play" easy for both Mac and PC with built-in A/D conversion and USB connection.
The Rode Podcaster offers an end-address configuration, the clarity of Rode's EQed-for-voice frequency response, an "ON" LED, a direct headphone amp 3.5mm jack ouput on the Podcaster body with volume control, and of course very low self noise that we expect from Rode. The microphone offers a switchable high-pass filter and comes complete with a 5M USB cable. Optional extras include a shock mounting system and soon-to-be-released Anglepoise style table mount arm.
Since the Podcaster is USB compliant, by simply connecting your USB cable to the mic and your PC or Mac, you will be able to record using the standard audio interface controls in your operating system. Installing the free Rode software available on the Podcaster website will offer more professional recording control.
