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 opens up possibilities for anyone who records audio from Podcaster, journalists and students to business people adding audio files to websites and multimedia presentations.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Microphone

Pros: I'm not sure where to start here... On the whole the RØDE Podcaster is so much better than my previous microphone it isn't funny.

It captures great audio without picking up a ton of background noise and is solidly built.

Cons: Strictly speaking, as it is a USB microphone it is not going to be the -best- quality audio. It is however great for what it is.

Other Thoughts: I primarily use my RØDE Podcaster to record voice overs for gameplay videos, so having clean audio that doesn't detract from what's being said and happening on screen is really important to me. I do not regret purchasing this microphone and am greatly satisfied with it's performance.
