A Quality Mic with USB Convenience!

As its name suggests, the RODE Podcaster microphone was specifically designed for computer recording applications where wide frequency response and low distortion are demanded. The Podcaster makes digital recording "plug and play" easy with its built-in A/D conversion and USB connection.

RODE Podcaster USB Microphone at a Glance:
  • Quality USB mic based on Broadcaster design
  • Tailored-for-voice frequency response with highpass filter
Quality USB mic based on Broadcaster design

The RODE Podcaster is based on their popular Broadcaster microphone - winner of the Radio World/US National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) "What's Cool" award. The Broadcaster has become an industry standard when studio sound quality is required for on-air applications. Now the Podcaster makes this quality available in a super-convenient USB version for the current generation of computer recording applications.

Tailored-for-voice frequency response plus highpass filter

The Podcaster offers an end-address configuration, the clarity of RODE's tailored-for-voice frequency response, an "ON" LED, a direct headphone amp, and of course very low self noise. The microphone offers a switchable highpass filter and comes complete with a 5M USB cable. Optional extras include a shock mounting system and soon-to-be-released Anglepoise style table mount arm.

RODE Podcaster USB Microphone Features:
  • Dynamic mic with USB connection
  • On-Air indicator LED
  • Ultra-low noise
  • Cardioid polar pattern with high 180-degree rejection
  • Voice tailored low-cut filter
  • Internal pop filter
  • Rugged stainless steel body
The RODE Podcaster makes high-quality computer recording easy!

Absolutely great mic!

There is absolutely nothing bad about this mic, it records very clear with no background noise. Very nice quality with a little weight on it. I love the headphone jack. Thank you Brandon Eden for helping me :)

Sweetwater Advice

Mike Conyers

This a great USB microphone, especially for podcasters and hobbyist voiceover work. With the included M2 stand mount, just add a desk mic stand and you are ready to go!
