Sydney, Australia (July 28, 2014)—Australian audio manufacturer RØDE recently announced its newest microphone, the NT-USB, a studio-grade microphone with a digital USB interface. The NT-USB is fully compatible with MacOS, Windows and iPad.
The NT-USB is a side-address microphone intended for recording musical performances in addition to spoken applications such as podcasting and voice-over. The microphone is compatible with all mainstream recording applications on both Windows and Mac OS based computers, as well as the Apple iPad using RØDE Rec, GarageBand or any other recording app that accepts an external microphone. Use on the Apple iPad requires a suitable USB connection adaptor, such as the Apple Camera Connection Kit.
The body of the NT-USB features a zero-latency stereo headphone monitoring (3.5mm) jack, which allows users to monitor the microphone input in realtime, along with dials to adjust the monitoring level and mix between the computer/iPad audio and the microphone input.
A pop-filter is included, which fits onto the base of the mic. Also provided is a stand mount with industry standard 3/8” thread, desktop tripod stand that allows the NT-USB to sit on a tabletop, and a pouch for storage of the microphone when not in use.
