RODE Microphones made quite the splash in the podcasting community just a few months ago with the launch of their RODECaster Pro – an all-in-one podcasting production studio, solving many of the communities problems by integrating vital components of the traditional podcasting setup into a neat package.
Today, Australia most famous audio powerhouse announced the next major firmware update to the RODECaster Pro, the world’s first fully integrated podcast production studio.
Following on from the previous firmware update 1.1.0 back in February which introduced the hugely popular and user-requested Multitrack recording via USB, the new firmware update 1.2.0 expands the RODECaster Pro’s multitrack capabilities, enabling multitrack recording direct to microSD, and other useful upgrades.
