Just weeks after introducing the RodeCaster Pro podcast production studio, popular pro audio gear maker RØDE Microphones just introduced the much needed companion accessory to the RodeCaster Pro – the all-new PodMic.
The Rode PodMic is an XLR-connected, end-address dynamic microphone specifically designed for speech and broadcast. Created with podcasters in mind, and specifically those intending to use the RØDECaster Pro Podcast Production Studio and PSA1 studio arm.
The PodMic sports a stylish construction and is easy to manoeuvre; making it super suitable for the world of podcasting.
The Rode Microphones PodMic has a built-in pop filter, and features a dynamic capsule design with a cardioid pattern for accurate speech capture. The PodMic can be used with any XLR interface, but is optimised for use with the new RØDECaster Pro.
