RODE has just released the NT1 5th Generation Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser XLR/USB Microphone. It fuses the classic sound signature of the legendary RODE NT1 with cutting-edge, next-generation technology. It features RODE’s groundbreaking Dual Connect output, offering both XLR and USB connectivity for connecting to an audio interface, mixer or console, and other audio equipment, or directly to a computer for plug-and-play recording. It features a professional-grade audio interface built in, with RODE’s ultra-low-noise, high-gain Revolution Preamp, high-resolution (up to 192kHz) A/D conversion, and advanced digital signal processing for recording pristine, studio-quality audio. It also features a 32-bit float digital output for recording everything from a whisper to the loudest drummer with no chance of clipping* and no need to set complex gain controls. These revolutionary features complement the warm silky character, extended frequency response, extremely low self-noise, and high SPL handling that the NT1 is renowned for, making the NT1 5th Generation the ultimate studio microphone for a wide variety of recording applications.
Whilst we wait to get our hands on one to test, we discuss its possible uses, strengths and weaknesses.
We've also created a survey so you can leave your mark on what will be a one-of-a-kind mic interface designed specifically for Voice Artists. We're hoping to release it later this year, and would love your thoughts on what you like and don't like about your current rig, so we can ensure the design has as wide appeal as possible. Follow the link and let us know your thoughts now. Find it on our website...
