RØDECaster Pro Adds Multi-Channel Mode



RØDECaster Pro is the world’s first fully integrated podcast production studio. Whether you are just starting out, or are a seasoned broadcast professional, the RØDECaster Pro Podcast Production Studio is all you will ever need.

RØDE Microphones Created PodMic for Podcasting



RØDE Microphones built PodMic for Podcasting. The all-new PodMic is a broadcast-grade dynamic microphone designed for podcast applications.

With a built in pop filter and a rich, even sound it will give your voice a silky, professional quality. The PodMic can be used with any XLR interface, but it is optimized for use with the new RØDECaster Pro.

When we designed the PodMic, we set out to create the ultimate Podcasting microphone. Durable, great-sounding, easy to use and flexible. Whether your podcast features screaming sports commentary or intimate poetry readings, the PodMic will deliver a balanced, easy-to-listen-to vocal tone that your listeners will love.

The end-fire dynamic capsule is protected by a stainless steel mesh grille and an integrated pop shield, allowing you to get up close to the microphone for that intimate “radio” sound.
