Rode Podcaster Broadcast Quality USB Microphone
Podcaster

The RØDE Podcaster 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.

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 on-board 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 minimize explosive 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.

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.

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 recording to various iPad audio applications such as Garage Band.

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 RØDE Podcaster USB microphone is designed and made in Australia, and covered by RØDE Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty.

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.
