Perfect for Podcasts, YouTube and More

The RODE Podcaster is perfect, as the name suggests for podcasting, YouTube videos, voice recognition software, corporate videos, live streaming and any production application that requires a simple yet professional plug-and-play voice-over microphone.

Broadcast Quality Sound

Also known as the RODE Podcaster Mk II (USB Firmware update) its broadcast quality sound also suits musicians and songwriters that prefer the convenience of a USB microphone without compromising sound quality.

Convenient Mobile Recording Studio

Allowing recording direct to a compatible Windows or Mac OS computer, the Podcaster works without the need for an additional digital interface, simplifying the recording process and essentially equipping you with a mobile studio.

Internal Analogue to Digital Conversion

With an audiophile quality 18-bit resolution and a 48kHz sampling A/D converter, the Podcaster processes all of the analogue-to-digital conversion internally. Its design bypasses the computer's lower quality on-board sound controller entirely to offer an uncompromised output.

Convenient Built-in Headphone 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, making monitoring a breeze.

Internal Pop-Filter

The Podcaster also features an internal pop filter, designed to minimise plosives sounds that can overload the microphone capsule and distort the audio output. A simple volume control dial on the rear allows you to quickly and easily adjust levels without fuss.

LED Power Indicator

A LED light indicates the microphone is powered and ready to go, ensuring no mishaps due to unplugged cables.

iPad Compatible

Combine it with an iPad Camera Connection Kit and a powered USB hub (both sold separately) to make it compatible with an Apple iPad. This opens up a world of possibility to record high quality audio to various iPad audio applications such as Garageband.

Includes Ring Mount

The RODE Podcaster Broadcast USB Microphone includes a generous 3 metre USB cable and sturdy RM2 microphone ring mount. We recommend a PSM1 shock mount and PSA1 boom arm for convenient, more permanent recording set ups.
