The RØDE's NT-USB is a multi-purpose side-address USB microphone that may be used to capture singing and musical performances as well as spoken applications like podcasting and voice-over. It is fully compatible with all mainstream recording applications on both Windows and Mac OS based computers, as well as the Apple iPad using RØDE Rec, GarageBand, or any other recording app that accepts an external microphone. Use on the Apple iPad requires a suitable USB connection adaptor, such as the Apple Camera Connection Kit.
NT-USB has a zero-latency stereo headphone monitoring (3.5mm) connector for monitoring the microphone input in real time, as well as controls for adjusting the monitoring level and mix between the computer/iPad audio and the microphone input. A premium pop-filter is included, which attaches to the mic's base and places the filter at the perfect distance from the capsule to reduce plosives during singing or conversation. A high-quality stand mount with 3/8" thread, a desktop tripod stand that allows the NT-USB to sit at a comfortable height on a tabletop, and a pouch for storing the microphone when not in use are also included.
