Rode Podcaster Broadcast Quality Cardioid End-Address Dynamic USB Microphone

The Rode Podcaster Broadcast Quality Cardioid End-Address Dynamic USB Microphone is a dynamic, end-address USB microphone that combines broadcast-quality audio with the simplicity of USB connectivity, allowing recording direct to a computer without the need for an additional digital interface.

Functionality

Including an audiophile quality 18-bit resolution, 48 kHz sampling A/D converter, the Podcaster processes all of the analog-to-digital conversion internally, bypassing the computer's lower quality on-board sound controller altogether.

Excellent Sound Quality

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 minimize plosives sounds that can overload the microphone capsule and distort the audio output.

Compatibility

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. 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.

Demo 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. 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 a high-quality recording to various iPad audio applications such as Garageband. The Podcaster includes a sturdy RM2 microphone ring mount.
