Seamless integration was the idea, and it was obtained by creating a 28mm dynamic capsule 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 powered by USB bus. This broadcast sound quality cardioid end-address dynamic microphone features 18-bit resolution and 8-48kHz sampling and is compatible with Windows and Mac. It features internal capsule shock mounting and 3.5mm stereo headphone output with volume control built-in to body that is ideal for voice recognition software.
Product Features in Detail
Dynamic, end-address USB microphone
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.
18-bit resolution, 48kHz sampling A/D converter
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.
Provides zero-latency monitoring
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.
Internal pop filter
The Podcaster features an internal pop filter, designed to minimise plosives sounds that can overload the microphone capsule and distort the audio output.
Compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, Mac OS X, several Linux
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.
Ideal for wide range of applications
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.
Provide high quality recording to various iPad audio applications
