2 heads are better than one!

The RØDE NT4 Dual-Element Stereo Microphone is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone specifically designed for stereo recording.

Its compact size and design allows for effective and subtle positioning which is crucial when close miking. The NT4 is supplied with a custom case, stereo breakout cable, stand mount, and windscreen.

Requires phantom power.

I have been a pro sound engineer in a large sound studio for approx 25 years. I had this mic dropped off by accident during a project one day. It looked interesting enough so I decided to experiment. I found that finding the right placement and sweet spot for this mic to be a bit tedious but if you really know what you are doing you will be able to get a great sound for the money. I can totally understand how some amateur engineers may spin their wheels with this, but if you know how to work your gear and have a solid understanding of sound, you will hear what you're looking for. It?s a complex mic, not for the timid.

I read the reviews and chose this mic for my overheads in my recording studio. My current setup is 2xAKG 414's in XY placement. With big hopes I tried this unit, and.... oh my god. Either who has left positive comments has got no ears or they all work for the RODE. I tested the unit with o2r96 in 24bit96 kHz recording in a drum room. The cheapest quality I ever heard on a mic. Its like if I buy 10 dollars worth of computer mic?s and put them in XY, possible would be better. I tried 10 different placements and spend 3 hours to understand why. And it?s just poor. That?s it. They're deaf, no stereo separation. I just could not believe my ears. I checked every setting again and again. Finally returned it and charged me a restocking fee, not to mention return shipping. Trust me I am in this business long enough to hear, and if you can hear, this mic is not for you.

good mic so far

By cstevenson

from appleton, wi

Comments about Rode Microphones NT4 Dual-Element Stereo Microphone:

I am currently using this mic with the edirol r09 to make rehearsal recordings of my a cappella quartet. After making recordings with the edirol onboard mics and the nt4, it is clear the quality of the recordings with the nt4 is better. This is great for practice purposes and critiquing ourselves.The ability to use a 9v battery to power it is a major plus in my book. I would have to agree there is a "sweet spot" with this mic, even with the quartet. When you find it, you'll know what it is, and you'll always want to find that again. I cant wait to try it on some higher quality recording equipment and see what I get.

NT-4 great mic

By John-EWS5-

from New York, NY

Comments about Rode Microphones NT4 Dual-Element Stereo Microphone:

I use this mic directly into my Marantz CD300 recorder. I get wonderful results recording our synagogue choir-better than live sound because of poor acoustics in sanctuary. Placement is crucial. My son's rock band (very loud)is harder to get good results with, but when we are in an acoustically good area it is pretty good. Also great for vocal work.

Excellent Mic

By movado242

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Rode Microphones NT4 Dual-Element Stereo Microphone:

I've been using his mic for about two years, mostly in live recording situations where I do a direct from the the board to an Alesis HD24 and run the NT4 from a Canon GL-2 centered on the stage. A couple of times problems with the sound guy/board gave me a bad recording from the board, but the NT4 has never failed me. If I need another mic for live performances this will be the one i get.

By JTolley214

Comments about Rode Microphones NT4 Dual-Element Stereo Microphone:

I work in a high school music department and record the choral and band concerts in a hall that is acoustically speaking... well we'll just go with pathetic. This mic, if strategically placed, will capture sound better than anyone hears in the audience. Great Value.
