Rode NT USB Condenser Mic
There are very few items in today's machine manufactured world that can claim to be 'Hand Made', and yet this is true of every RODE microphone.
RODE have a state of the art manufacturing plant in Sydney, Australia that is specially built for their needs using incredible cutting edge equipment, but that ultimately allows their engineers to hand-craft each mic.
RODE are the only microphone manufacturer to offer a 5 to 10 year warranty across their entire range of products. They know they can offer a 10 year warranty because they are confident that their microphones will last a lifetime, thanks to the meticulous manufacturing process that only RØDE employs. You won't find any bad solders caused by an overworked, underpaid plant worker on their products!
So when you buy a RØDE microphone you are also buying their product service guarantee - their customer support teams are available around the clock to provide insight on pre-sales questions, technical support on product issues, and even general recording advice.
The NT-USB is a highly versatile side-address microphone that is ideal for recording singing and musical performances in addition to spoken applications such as podcasting and voice-over.
It 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 you 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.
