RODE PodMic USB Overview

Engineered to provide a versatile workhorse for podcasting, streaming, gaming, and content creation, the PodMic USB is one of the most flexible microphones ever made by RODE, delivering all of the robust features of the original dynamic PodMic but now with optional USB-C connectivity, allowing you to use either analog or digital connections. When using the XLR output, the PodMic USB performs exactly like its predecessor, albeit with an improved studio-grade internal pop filter for pesky plosives. When utilizing the USB-C output, you gain access a range of superflexible features including a high-gain low-noise Revolution preamp, pristine-quality A/D conversion, and advanced DSP that adds professional APHEX vocal processing to your recordings.

With the appropriate adapters, the PodMic USB fully supports smartphones and tablets for recording anywhere, anyway you want. You can easily keep a hand on your signals with zero-latency onboard monitoring via the 3.5mm headphone output and a dedicated volume-control wheel. The PodMic USB is also fully compatible with the complete RODE software suite, including RODE Central, RODE Connect, RODE Capture, and UNIFY, making it easy to bring broadcast-quality audio to a wide range of applications.

A Classic, Revisited
The PodMic USB delivers the same great sound quality and compact-yet-rugged form factor as the successful PodMic, but adds a sleek new finish, a studio-grade internal pop filter, and a new USB-C output. Now you can connect to virtually any audio gear, from analog mixers, interfaces, and preamps, to digital recorders, computers, and mobile devices, letting you record from the comfort of your home studio or out and about with ease. With the USB-C connection, you can also unlock a plethora of next-generation RODE features, including powerful DSP processing that will make your vocal recordings and streams shine.
