We told you this was in the pipeline in a report from the NAMM show and now RØDE Microphones has officially announced that the world’s first fully integrated podcast production console, the RØDECaster Pro, now features multitrack recording alongside a suite of new features introduced today in the first major firmware update since its release in December 2018. Here's the details in the company's own words...
The RØDECaster Pro’s new functions featured in the 1.1.0 firmware update include:
HOW DOES THE MULTITRACK WORK?
The RØDECaster Pro will now record 14 tracks to your computer’s recording software via the USB output. These tracks are:
• 2 tracks (stereo left and right) ‘live mix’, as featured on the RØDECaster Pro since its release
• A mono track for each of the 4 microphone inputs
• 2 tracks (stereo left and right) each for the USB, 3.5mm TRRS, Bluetooth and sound-effects-pad channels
To activate multitrack output, simply access the ‘Advanced’ settings in the ‘Hardware’ section of the RØDECaster Pro’s touchscreen interface. From there, a single switch engages multitrack. You can record all channels at either pre or post effects. A stereo mix will also record to the microSD card.
