RODE Microphones Announces The AI-1: Its First Ever Audio Interface Available as a Studio Bundle

The RØDE AI-1 Complete Studio Kit marks the launch of the first ever audio interface by acclaimed manufacturer, RØDE Microphones. RØDE has released the AI-1 in a complete studio bundle with its highly revered NT-1 Microphone. The kit is designed to give you everything you need to get recording at home, and includes a shock mount, pop filter, and cables.

The AI-1 is a simple to use USB audio interface that provides a discrete Class-A preamp for studio-grade audio quality. It allows you to connect a microphone, guitar, or a line level instrument, and is sold with the NT-1 microphone to faithfully record a wide range of instruments and vocal performances.

This is a pro-quality audio setup that has the potential to record at 24-bit/96kHz with its high-grade A/D converter and headphone preamp. The AI-1 bundle also includes a pop shield, shock mount, and cables, giving you everything you need to start recording.

Damien Wilson, CEO of RØDE Microphones says that, “The AI-1 is the best quality-for-price single-channel interface available, bar none. It’s also incredibly easy to use, thanks to thoughtful design, Australian Made quality – it is the perfect companion to any of RØDE's Microphones.”

In a world swamped with USB audio interfaces, there has always been a compromise between price and performance; entry-level prices usually denote entry-level performance. RØDE seems to have cracked the formula though with its AI-1 bundle; it has matched the studio-grade detail of the NT-1 microphone with a new audio interface that is capable of making the most of the microphone's transparency and clear sound.  

The AI-1 is a sleek unit that will look great on your audio production desk, and its compact design should make it the ideal device to keep in your bag for whenever inspiration hits.

As an added bonus, for a limited time only, every sale of the AI-1 comes with a FREE version the recording software Ableton Live Lite, redeemable at the RØDE website.

The RØDE AI-1 Complete Studio Kit is available to order now at Gear4music.
