Australia (March 31, 2020)—Røde has released a public RødeCaster Pro beta update for the firmware of its podcast production studio.
The update includes a variety of features, including the ability to control all the individual processing parameters, enhanced metering, a new reverb effect, sound pad overdubbing and MP3 export. It also features an enhanced companion app.
Rode’s new Companion App has a built-in firmware updater, so users who connect the RødeCaster Pro to a computer and run the Companion App will get a software prompt, offering to update to beta version 2.1.
As the update is currently unsupported, Rode warns against using it for critical projects and does not guarantee that it is stable or free of software bugs, nor does it have tutorials or online help for it yet. Users who install the version 2.1 beta and want to go back to version 2.0.4 can do so using the 2.0.4 firmware updater by holding down ‘alt’ (Windows) or ‘Option’ (Mac) while clicking through the updater.
