RØDE is excited to announce its newest microphone, the NT-USB, a studio-grade microphone with the convenience of a digital USB interface. The NT-USB is fully compatible with MacOS, Windows and iPad.
While RØDE’s Podcaster USB microphone was released in 2007, its primary focus is to provide broadcast-quality voice recording, with its end-address configuration. The NT-USB on the other hand is a highly versatile side-address microphone that is ideal for recording musical performances in addition to spoken applications such as podcasting and voice-over.
The microphone is fully compatible with all mainstream recording applications on both Windows and Mac OS based computers, as well as the Apple iPad using RØDE Rec, GarageBand, or any other recording app that accepts an external microphone. Use on the Apple iPad requires a suitable USB connection adaptor, such as the Apple Camera Connection Kit.
The body of the NT-USB features a zero-latency stereo headphone monitoring (3.5mm) jack, which allows users to monitor the microphone input in realtime, along with dials to adjust the monitoring level and mix between the computer/iPad audio and the microphone input.
A premium pop-filter is included, which fits onto the base of the mic, positioning the filter the ideal distance from the capsule to minimise plosives (hard ‘B’, ‘T’ or ‘P’ sounds that produce a harsh sound) during singing or speech. Also provided is a high-quality stand mount with industry standard 3/8” thread, desktop tripod stand that allows the NT-USB to sit at a comfortable height on a tabletop, and a pouch for storage of the microphone when not in use.
The NT-USB is fully compatible with the Apple iPad*, for use with RODE Rec, GarageBand and other audio apps.
*Apple USB Camera Connection kit required.
The NT-USB features a zero-latency stereo headphone monitoring jack, with both level and mix control, providing studio-level control over your performance.
Pop shield and desktop stand included
Everything you need right out of the box, including all- metal pop shield, stand mount, desktop stand, zip case and extra-long 6m (20') USB cable.
Ready for multiple applications
The NT-USB's condenser capsule is of the same quality found in our studio-grade microphones that are in use by hundreds of thousands of artists and engineers daily.
Designed for superlative performance across vocals, musical instruments, voice over and podcasting, the NT-USB is all you need to start creating world-class recordings direct to your Mac or Windows computer, or even your iPad on the go.
