Following the success of the NT-USB, Rode has turned their focus to the portability of the USB microphone. The result is the NT-USB Mini, inspired by the original and sized-down into an even more portable micing solution. The microphone delivers crystal-clear sound thanks to the premium-grade condenser capsule. The capsule provides a directional cardioid pickup pattern, which is conventionally used for vocal recording and podcasting. This is because the cardioid pattern provides a focused sound, picking up everything in front of the capsule whilst minimising background noise.
The wide and smooth frequency response is designed to capture every subtle detail from your voice or instrument. It even features a built-in pop filter for reducing plosive and sibilance sounds. The result is a warm yet defined sound, that is perfect for a range of applications.
Magnetic, adjustable desktop stand - find the perfect position
One of the features that sets the NT-USB Mini apart from conventional USB mics is the integrated, magnetic, adjustable swing mount. The unique desktop stand features a 360-degree orientation, allowing you to quickly position your microphone with ease.
The detachable magnetic desk stand helps to combat knocks and bumps, providing an ultra-sturdy base for your microphone. Not only that, but it means you can easily attach it to a mic stand or studio arm.
Integrated studio-grade headphone amplifier
The onboard, zero-latency headphone output makes monitoring your levels easier than ever. You can also switch between monitoring modes, from the standard setting to zero-latency for added flexibility. The zero-latency mode is perfect for troubleshooting problematic echoes you can incur whilst recording instruments and vocals.
It also features a front-panel level control, allowing you to set your volume levels with maximum precision. The microphone boasts a class-compliant USB output, providing plug-and-play functionality to get you ready to record within minutes. The sleek and stylish design is constructed from hard-wearing steel and reinforced nylon resin construction for optimal durability.
