Designed for gamers, streamers, podcasters, Twitchers,
YouTubers, and more, the Rode NT-USB Mini is a USB microphone that aims to give
you a professional, broadcast-quality sound in an easy-to-use package. If
you've always wanted a dynamite sound but find the concepts of studio-miking to
be baffling, this is the mic for you.
The microphone makes use of a high-quality condenser capsule
that offers a warm, yet clear sound. Its directional cardioid polar pattern
minimizes off-axis sound, effectively tamping down room tone and focusing the
audio capture on what's directly in front of the mic.
A built-in windscreen helps mitigate vocal pops and plosives
for a cleaner sound. The included stand is more than a stand—it isolates the
NT-USB Mini from structurally borne noises and vibrations. This also ensures a
Thanks to its class-compliant USB output, you can send audio
directly to computers and laptops, no drivers or dedicated audio interfaces
required. Just plug a pair of headphones into the NT-USB Mini's 3.5mm jack, and
you'll be able to monitor your 24-bit, 48 kHz, broadcast-quality audio in all
its glory. A convenient volume dial helps you raise or lower the headphone
level to your miking.
The mic has been crafted out of steel and reinforced nylon
resin, making the whole body as durable as it is pleasurable. With stability in
form, euphonics in sound, and convenience in use, the NT-USB Mini can be the
go-to for digital-broadcast needs, no matter the studio, or even if there is no
studio at all.
