A professional USB microphone with next-generation features.

By

16 November 2022

Røde has today announced a new addition to its industry-leading range of USB microphones, the NT-USB+. Based on the legendary NT-USB, the NT-USB+ is a professional-grade USB microphone loaded with next-generation features. It is also compact, portable, and versatile, making it the ideal microphone for musicians, podcasters, streamers and professionals who want to capture studio-quality sound with ease.

A Legend Reborn

The NT-USB+ is based on the original NT-USB, which was released in 2014 and has long been an industry-standard professional USB microphone for musicians, podcasters, streamers and other creators. Featuring the same iconic form factor and studio-quality sound as the original, the NT-USB+ builds on this legacy with a number of next-generation enhancements and is set to become a modern classic.

“The original NT-USB was an instant success when it launched almost a decade ago, setting a lofty standard for studio-quality USB microphones,” said Røde CEO Damien Wilson. “With the NT-USB+, we are setting a new standard. We have kept the form factor and functionality that made the original such a success and introduced several new features, integrating cutting-edge technology for the next wave of creators. Plug-and-play USB audio has never sounded this good.”

Key Features:

  • Studio-grade condenser capsule and tight cardioid polar pattern, delivering pristine audio ideal for recording vocals, speech and instruments
  • Ultra-low-noise, high-gain Revolution Preamp and high-resolution 24-bit/48kHz analog-to-digital conversion for professional sound quality with stunning clarity
  • Internal DSP for advanced audio processing powered by APHEX — including a compressor, noise gate and legendary Aural Exciter and Big Bottom effects
  • High-power headphone output for zero-latency monitoring, complete with level and mix controls
  • USB-C output for plug-and-play connectivity with computers, smartphones and tablets
  • Includes high-quality pop filter and desktop mount — an all-in-one solution for recording professional sound at home or on the go
  • Designed and made in Røde’s state-of-the-art facilities in Sydney, Australia

Studio Sound At Home Or On The Go

The NT-USB+ features a studio-grade condenser capsule that evokes the sound of a classic large-diaphragm condenser microphone. Delivering warmth and clarity, with a full frequency response and tight cardioid polar pattern for clear, focused audio, it excels on everything from vocals and speech to acoustic guitar and other instruments. The NT-USB+ features enhanced circuitry, with Røde’s ultra-low-noise, high-gain Revolution Preamp technology — first introduced with the groundbreaking RødeCaster Pro II ­— as well as upgraded high-resolution 24-bit/48kHz analog-to-digital conversion for pristine audio quality.

It also features powerful internal DSP, which allows users to apply advanced APHEX processing to their audio. This includes a high-pass filter for cutting out low-end rumble, a noise gate for eliminating background noise, a compressor for delivering punchy and balanced sound, and the legendary Aural Exciter and Big Bottom effects for rich, broadcast tone.

This studio-quality processing can be activated via the companion app Røde Central — available for desktop and mobile — for use with any other software or application. It is also available in Røde’s free podcasting and streaming software, Røde Connect.

Simplicity, Portability & Versatility

Not only does the NT-USB+ sound amazing, but it is also incredibly easy to use, portable, and versatile. It features a class-compliant USB-C output that is plug-and-play compatible with Mac and Windows computers; it is also fully compatible with any Android or iOS smartphone or tablet, making it an excellent portable recording solution.

It comes with a professional pop filter for minimising plosives, as well as a tripod mount for perfect positioning on a desktop. It also features a zero-latency headphone output for monitoring audio with no distracting echo or delay, complete with level and monitor mix controls. With its plug-and-play connectivity, included extras and all-in-one design, the NT-USB+ is the ultimate microphone for anyone who wants to record professional sound effortlessly.

The NT-USB+ is shipping worldwide and available now for US$169.
