Rode’s new RodeCaster Pro is an all-in-one solution for podcasters. It’s a mixer, recorder and sample playback unit rolled into one with separate inputs for 3.5mm TRRS, Bluetooth, and USB sources. Four onboard Class A preamps can supply phantom power to condenser microphones for podcast presenters who can each monitor via four headphone outputs. Eight colour coded pads can be pre-loaded with sound effects or jingles to be triggered mid-recording. A colour touchscreen gives you quick and easy control over settings such as EQ and processing presets which include the Aphex Aural Exciter and Big Bottom.
RodeCaster Pro records directly to microSD card for a completely self-contained podcasting setup that relieves you from carrying a separate audio interface and laptop. Alternatively you can use it as an interface and record to your DAW of choice.
