Sydney, Australia (December 5, 2017)—RØDE Microphones has released the AI-1, marking its first foray into the realm of USB audio interfaces, available on its own or as part of a new bundle, The Complete Studio Kit.
Aimed at home recording, the AI-1 sports a Neutrik combo jack input and discrete Class-A preamp, allowing users to connect a microphone, guitar or line-level instrument, like a synthesizer.
The AI-1 offers zero-latency playback by enabling a direct monitoring feature and playback via headphones/speakers. It features 48 V Phantom Power and is class compliant, eliminating the need to install drivers.
Available as part of The Complete Studio Kit, the AI-1 comes with RØDE’s NT1 large diaphragm condenser microphone, SMR shock mount with popshield, 20 foot XLR and USB C/A cables. Also, for a limited time, every sale of the AI-1 comes with a free version of Ableton Live Lite.
