These cardioid microphones output to USB and process all of the analogue to digital conversion internally, bypassing the computer's on-board sound controller altogether. Designed for podcasting and voice recording.


The Podcaster is a dynamic, cardioid microphone that combines 'broadcast-quality audio with the simplicity of USB connectivity', providing direct connection to a computer without the need for an additional digital interface. Has an 18-bit resolution, 48kHz sampling A/D converter, whilst 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'.

Rode suggest that the Podcaster is suitable for 'podcasting, vodcasting, YouTube videos, voice recognition software, corporate videos and any production application that requires a simple yet professional voice over microphone' and that 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'. The microphone is powered from the USB bus and has a LED to indicate operation.

The 28mm dynamic capsule is aimed on-axis, mounted in an internal shock-mount. A 3.5mm stereo jack socket provides the headphone output, and is adjacent to a rotary headphone level control. An internal pop filter is designed to minimise plosive sounds that can overload the microphone capsule.

It is 'fully compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS X computers, as well as several Linux distributions' and may also be used as an iPad microphone for the Apple iPad (in conjunction with the iPad Camera Connection Kit and a powered USB hub) for to various iPad audio applications such as Garageband.
