Powered by USB-bus, the Podcaster is ideal for podcasting and vodcasting, as well as YouTube videos and voice recognition software. You might be recording a demo and looking for a simple USB mic but without having to compromise on sound quality.
The Podcaster processes all of the analogue to digital conversion internally using its 18-bit resolution and 48kHz sampling A/D converter, which bypasses your computer's lower quality on-board sound controller, providing you with great output.
Including an audiophile-quality 18-bit resolution, 48kHz sampling A/D converter, the Podcaster processes all of the analogue to digital conversion internally, bypassing the computer's lower quality on-board sound controller altogether. The internal pop filter minimises plosive sounds what can distort the audio output. The Rode Podcaster dynamic USB microphone is covered by Rode Microphones' industry leading 10 year warranty, so you can be confident you're using a reliable and trusted piece of kit, whatever you're using it for.
The headphone output on the microphone body gives you zero latency monitoring, so you're able to hear exactly what is being recorded, free of delay or echo. The Podcaster body also features a status LED to indicate when it's in recording mode and a sturdy RM2 microphone ring mount.
The dynamic, end address Rode Podcaster Mic is fully Mac, Windows 7 and Windows Vista compatible, and can also be used in conjunction with several Linux distributions. It can also be used as an iPad microphone for the Apple iPad (in conjunction with the iPad Camera Connection Kit and a powered USB hub) to provide high quality recording to various iPad audio applications such as Garageband.
The Podcaster opens up possibilities for anyone who records audio - from podcasters, journalists and students to business people adding audio files to websites and multimedia presentations.
