4 Discrete Headphone Outputs

A switchable headphone limiter ensures no deafening spikes. Left and right TRS speaker outputs provide quality playback listening, or can feed a PA for an audience if podcasting live.
Ready to Record
The Rodecaster Pro allows you to instantly record your master mix output to DAW Software via USB. Alternatively, utilise the on-board MicroSD card slot and take your final project anywhere to polish your final mix.
Sound Effects and Jingles
The RodeCaster Pro comes with 8 programmable sound effects pads, for instant triggering of sound effects, music, jingles, applause and ads. They're perfect for turning a boring podcast into a dynamic, entertaining show without spending hours on advanced editing techniques or post-processing.
You can record audio direct to the programmable pads from any input, or simply “drag and drop” files from your computer using the supplied software. Simple, easy to use, and easily fine-tuned if you have more than one show to host.
Phone Call Friendly
Have a remote guest you want to interview? Simply connect your phone to the RODECaster Pro via Bluetooth or with a TRRS cable. The RODECaster Pro automatically provides “mix-minus” audio to prevent echo being heard by the caller, without the need to purchase dedicated and costly hardware. Telephone interviews via Mobile or Skype with a remote guest never sounded so good!
Class A Servo-biased Preamps
The RØDECaster Pro’s pristine preamps and outputs feature Class A circuitry, as featured on broadcast consoles that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The Class A preamps provide a much cleaner gain structure with lower levels of distortion, providing an incredibly clean, low-noise signal. The Preamps are also servo-biased, keeping distortion levels low. Your signal is broadcast-pure.
On-board APHEX Processing
Rodecaster Pro features APHEX Aural Exciter and APHEX Big Bottom signal processing under the hood. Combine these integrated processing tools with a quality condenser mic and you'll have the recipe for pro-grade sound for your Podcast.
The Rode RODECaster Pro also features a multistage dynamics section that offers pristene sound quality, without spending hours on mixing, post-recording:
- Compression and noise-gate - Adds depth, tone and consistency.
- High-pass filter - Eliminates low-end rumble.
- De-esser - Lessen sibilance on “s” words.
- Ducking - a feature used in professional broadcast stations where the volume of the host-channel (channel one) will automatically override the volume of the other channels
- Auto setup - Quickly sets the level of you and your guests.
