Sing Like a Celebrity with Rode “Karaoke Edition” Performer Kit


3 April 2018

Rode Microphones announces its latest release in the RodeLink Family and the saviour to karaoke rookies all over the world: The Performer Kit Karaoke Edition.

Featuring a high-quality handheld condenser microphone (TX-M2) and a karaoke hot-rodded desktop receiver (RX-DESK-K) fitted with the patented Synthpersonator Voice Alteration Performance Algorithm (VAPA-ware), the RodeLink Performer Kit Karaoke Edition is ideal for use in pubs, party venues, and at home.

Building on the performance of the Performer Kit’s out-of-the-box simplicity, the RodeLink Performer Kit Karaoke Edition operates on the universally secure Series II 2.4GHz encrypted digital transmission, which is shared with many other wireless transmission networks such as WiFi. The device was built to automatically select and connect to the strongest signal, ensuring a secure and reliable connection every time.

The revolutionary Synthpersonator VAPA-ware suspended in the unit’s software is unique to Rode. This exclusive cutting-edge technology allows the user to digitally transform his or her voice in real-time, including options to adjust timbre, pitch correction, reverb, language adaptation, blue-note trills and more. There’s even a haptic vibration to tell you when to breathe. It comes pre-programmed with the voice signatures of dozens of iconic singers from the 1960s to the present day.

The RodeLink Performer Kit Karaoke Edition is completely compatible with the rest of the RodeLink Range, providing users with the freedom to mix-and-match Rode’s wireless microphones and gear. This RodeLink system has been tested and approved for use with up to eight kits operating in a common area.

“At Rode, we’ve always focused on products for professional and artistic applications, such as filmmaking, live performance and studio recording,” says Damien Wilson, CEO of Rode and The Freedman Group. “Thanks to the Synthpersonator VAPA-ware, the Performer Kit Karaoke Edition takes us into the world of intuitive voice processing and guidance to create the most authentic celebrity vocal reproduction in history. It even makes me sound like Madonna — which has always been a lifelong dream.”

The Performer Kit Karaoke Edition comes with TX-M2, RX-DESK-K, Synthpersonator VAPA-ware onboard, LB-1 Lithium-Ion Rechargeable Battery, microphone clip, microphone case and Micro USB Cable and includes a two-year extended warranty. It is now available at authorised Rode dealers.

N.B. This is a retrospective April Fool’s post. Rode does not offer the Performer Kit Karaoke Edition with Synthpersonator as a product available to the public.
