Less than a week ago, RODE Microphones announced their latest Rode Wireless Go II microphone system. It turns out, though, that some users who already managed to get their hands on the setup have experienced certain issues referring to exporting larger uncompressed files via the RØDE Central app.
The proprietary software allows you to set up device preferences, access, optimize and export recordings, activate and deactivate functions, and update your firmware. It’s free to download for Mac and Windows.
RODE are currently working on this bug, so Wireless GO II users should expect a firmware update that will fix this drawback soon. Meanwhile, the RØDE Central app was updated to version 1.1.9 recently. There’s a small change regarding the Mono and Stereo recording modes.
Now, the Wireless GO II gives you the option to either record in Merged or Split mode which are toggled by pressing and holding the pair and gain buttons on the receiver for three seconds or via RØDE Central.
This allows you to record each transmitter onto separate channels on the output (‘Split’ mode) or combine the two into a single output (‘Merged’ mode). When it’s in Split mode, there will be two output level meters, when it’s in Merged mode, there will be just one.
On top, RØDE Central gives you access to basic information about your Wireless GO II, including unique ID, battery level, current firmware version (with option to update), storage space (transmitters only), and clock (with option to sync to connected device).
It also allows you to activate and control a range of functions and features for the Wireless GO II receiver and transmitter such as power saver mode, fine gain control, enabling safety channel, onboard recording, recording playback, optimization and export, just to name a few.
You can find more about this and how to set up the system by heading over to the Wireless GO II Learning Hub.
