RODE Podcaster

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 R-DE`s tailored-for-voice frequency response, an 'ON' L.E.D., a direct headphone amp, and of course very low self-noise. The microphone offers a switchable high pass filter and comes complete with a 5M USB cable.


Advanced Internal processing


Including an audiophile-quality 18-bit resolution, 48kHz sampling A/D converter, the Podcaster processes all of the analogue-to-digital conversion internally, bypassing the computer's lower-quality onboard sound controller altogether. A headphone output on the microphone body provides zero-latency monitoring, so the user can hear exactly what is being recorded, free of delay or echo. The Podcaster features an internal pop filter, designed to minimise plosives sounds that can overload the microphone capsule and distort the audio output.

It is fully compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac OS X computers, as well as several Linux distributions. The microphone is bus-powered and features a status LED to indicate operation.


Varied Applications


The Podcaster is ideal for podcasting, vodcasting, YouTube videos, voice recognition software, corporate videos and any production application that requires a simple yet professional voice-over microphone. It is also a convenient demo microphone for musicians and songwriters that prefer the convenience of a USB microphone but don't want to compromise sound quality.


Ipad Compatibility


It can also be used as an iPad microphone for the Apple iPad (in conjunction with the iPad Camera Connection Kit and a powered USB hub) to provide high-quality recordings to various iPad audio applications such as Garageband. The Podcaster includes a sturdy RM2 microphone ring mount. For professional applications, the optional PSM1 shock mount and PSA1 boom arm are highly recommended. The RODE Podcaster USB microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RODE Microphones' industry-leading 10-year warranty.
