OVERVIEW

Versatile, studio-quality USB microphone.

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 R˜DE 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.

    Rode makes their microphones to professional standards inside and out. If you are using a computer program to record go for this RODE NT USB.

      Comments about Rode Microphones NT-USB USB Condenser Microphone:

      I bought this one to record voice-overs on training videos at work. We were have trouble with noise issues using old analog preamps and plugging into the computer sound card. The Rode by-passed all the issues plugging in directly via USB. The headphone jack is a stroke of genius and allows monitoring with headphones with zero latency. The mic is plug & play. No other drivers were needed. We record video using Pinnacle Ultimate 9 and then record the voice-overs using the Rode and Pinnacle. The Rode NT-USB is performing flawlessly. It is surprisingly adept at avoiding background noise which is a big plus as we are in a manufacturing environment. I couldn't be more pleased with the Rode and I think I'll buy another for home use. What an easy way to record direct to your DAW!

        Comments about Rode Microphones NT-USB USB Condenser Microphone:

        Ordered the NT-USB as an open box. The shield was positioned over the back of the microphone. Perhaps that is why the microphone was returned. Saved some and got an excellent mic.
