Broadcast-pure audio.
Craft Your Sound
The RØDECaster Pro features eight programmable sound effects pads for instantly triggering sound effects, music, intro and outros, or ads rolls. You can record direct to a pad from any of the RØDECaster Pro’s inputs or simply assign audio from your computer. Each pad is highly customisable, with options for playback mode, colour-coding, and more, and you can store up to eight banks of sounds – 64 in total!
Have a remote guest you want to chat to? Recording a podcast with your crew at a distance? Simply connect your phone to the RØDECaster Pro via Bluetooth™ or with a TRRS cable. The RØDECaster Pro even provides “mix-minus” audio to prevent echo being heard by the caller (without the need for complicated external hardware). Remote interviews never sounded so good!
The RØDECaster Pro operates as a standalone unit straight out of the box, recording your podcast directly to a microSD card (you can even podcast on the go with the RØDE DC-USB1). Connect to a computer via USB and use the RØDECaster Pro as a powerful audio interface for recording to your favourite audio software. Versatile multitrack recording capabilities allow you to edit your podcast endlessly in post-production and open up a world of possibility for livestreaming applications.
