By way of a new firmware update 1.1.0, Rode Microphones has enhanced its RodeCaster Pro podcast production console with the highly requested multitrack recording feature. The update also brings a a more user-friendly interface and channel selection.
All existing customers will be able to update their RodeCaster Pro with multitrack recording, and all new units will feature the update.
The multitrack feature will record 14 tracks:
- A stereo ‘live mix’ track, as featured since its release
- A mono track for each of the four microphone inputs
- A stereo track each for the USB, 3.5mm TRRS, Bluetooth and sound pad channels
Multitrack recording can be activated via the Advanced settings in the Hardware section of the touchscreen interface. From there, a single switch engages ‘Multi-Channel’ mode for multitrack recording.
“The reception of the RodeCaster Pro has been exceptional,” says Freedman Group CEO, Damien Wilson. “But for us, launching the product was never the finish line. We continue to refine and improve the software features of the RodeCaster Pro, with the first significant upgrade being the addition of multitrack recording to the RodeCaster Pro’s capability. Whether you choose to mix live or edit in post, the RodeCaster Pro is the perfect solution for every podcaster.”
The 1.1.0 firmware update will be available to download in February from rode.com/rodecasterapp.
