The RØDE Difference
Connect and be recording in minutes
The RODECaster’s four high-quality Class A mic preamps handle studio condenser microphones as well as dynamic mics. Quickly connect microphones for you and your guests with automatic level setting and one-touch recording to a microSD card. Operation is so simple, you can be recording your first podcast within minutes of taking the RODECaster Pro out of the box.
Pads for sound effects, music, and more
The RODECaster Pro features eight programmable pads for instantly triggering sound effects, jingles, applause, and commercials — perfect for giving your podcast professional sheen. Record audio directly to the programmable pads from any input, or simply drag and drop files from your computer via the included software. You can even select your favorite colors for pad illumination.
Class A servo-biased preamps
The RODECaster Pro’s pristine preamps and outputs feature Class A circuitry, as found in expensive broadcast consoles. The Class A, servo-biased preamps provide a clean gain structure with very low distortion for a broadcast-grade signal. For the rich, warm sound found in professional studios, your signal can also be enhanced with the legendary Aphex Aural Exciter and Big Bottom audio processors, both incorporated in the audio processing section of the RODECaster Pro. The RODECaster Pro also features multi-stage compression, limiting, de-essing, and gating.
Want to phone interview a remote guest? Easy — just connect your phone to the RODECaster Pro via Bluetooth or with a TRRS cable. The RODECaster Pro automatically supplies mix-minus audio to prevent echo being heard by the caller, without the need for dedicated hardware. Telephone interviews never sounded so great!
Standalone or tethered
Right out of the box, the RODECaster Pro functions as a standalone unit that records directly to microSD cards, so you can be up and running in mere minutes. The RODECaster Pro is also a USB audio interface, so it can connect to your computer via USB. This means you can record your podcast to the recording software of your choice and seamlessly stream live shows.
Updated firmware delivers major upgrades
As if the RODECaster Pro wasn’t impressive enough already, Rode released a major firmware upgrade that lets you unlock even more of its full potential. For starters, the upgrade allows full multitrack recording (stereo live mix plus individual sources) directly to microSD media. You’re going to want a high-quality card for that, which you can find here at Sweetwater. To let you make the most of this new onboard recording capability, Rode also made the RODECaster Pro’s file handling more user friendly. Revamped recording functions include the ability to pause during recording and color-coded record button that can reflect channel recording states.
