NTG4 & NTG4+SHOTGUN MICROPHONES

Two new version of the very popular NTG shotgun microphones have also been announced, the NTG4 and NTG4+.

The mics feature a newly designed capsule, with lower noise and higher sensitivity, an on-board digital switching controlling a 75Hz high pass filter, 10db PAD and a high frequency boost that compensates for any high frequency attenuation when using a DeadCat windshield.

In a world first, Røde has equipped the mics with an internal rechargeable lithium battery, that will provide up to 150 hours of operating time, and can be charged via any USB using a MicroUSB cable (also supplied).

NTR STUDIO RIBBON MICROPHONE

The NTR is designed so that the ribbon is separate to the mic’s frame and body, thereby minimising resonance and allowing for the best possible acoustic transparency around the element.

Featuring a high output, low noise, low impedance transformer and a ribbon element that has been designed completely from scratch, using laser cut aluminium that is only 1.8 microns thick (one of the thinnest ribbons ever used in a mic). Surrounding the ribbon is the same all-metal mesh that’s used on the SMR pop shield.

“It’s always been a dream of RØDE’s to create the world’s very best ribbon microphone, but the time was never quite right.” Exclaimed Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Global Sales and Marketing Director. “As many of you know, our manufacturing capabilities have expanded dramatically over the past few years, [allowing] us to realize this dream, and bring the NTR to life.”

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY

The NTR will be available globally in February 2015, with, yet again, no word as yet on price. For more info, check: www.rode.com/ntr
