RØDE has announced the NT-USB+, a new addition to its range of USB microphones. They say that, based on the NT-USB, the NT-USB+ is a professional-grade USB microphone loaded with next-generation features. It is also compact, portable and versatile, making it the ideal microphone for musicians, podcasters, streamers and professionals who want to capture studio-quality sound with ease.

RØDE CEO Damien Wilson, told us, "The original NT-USB was an instant success when it launched almost a decade ago, setting a lofty standard for studio-quality USB microphones. With the NT-USB+, we are setting a new standard. We have kept the form factor and functionality that made the original such a success and introduced several new features, integrating cutting-edge technology for the next wave of creators. Plug-and-play USB audio has never sounded this good."

Here's the full details direct from RØDE...

The NT-USB+ is based on the original NT-USB, which was released in 2014 and has long been an industry-standard professional USB microphone for musicians, podcasters, streamers and other creators. Featuring the same iconic form factor and studio-quality sound as the original, the NT-USB+ builds on this legacy with a number of next-generation enhancements and is set to become a modern classic.

STUDIO SOUND AT HOME OR ON THE GO
The NT-USB+ features a studio-grade condenser capsule that evokes the sound of a classic large-diaphragm condenser microphone. Delivering warmth and clarity, with a full frequency response and tight cardioid polar pattern for clear, focused audio, it excels on everything from vocals and speech to acoustic guitar and other instruments. The NT-USB+ features enhanced circuitry, with RØDE's ultra-low-noise, high-gain Revolution Preamp™ technology – first introduced with the groundbreaking RØDECaster Pro II ­– as well as upgraded high-resolution 24-bit/48kHz analog-to-digital conversion for pristine audio quality.

It also features powerful internal DSP, which allows users to apply advanced APHEX® processing to their audio. This includes a high-pass filter for cutting out low-end rumble, a noise gate for eliminating background noise, a compressor for delivering punchy and balanced sound, and the legendary Aural Exciter™ and Big Bottom™ effects for rich, broadcast tone.

This studio-quality processing can be activated via the companion app RØDE Central – available for desktop and mobile – for use with any other software or application. It is also available in RØDE's free podcasting and streaming software, RØDE Connect.

SIMPLICITY, PORTABILITY AND VERSATILITY
Not only does the NT-USB+ sound amazing, but it is also incredibly easy to use, portable and versatile. It features a class-compliant USB-C output that is plug-and-play compatible with Mac and Windows computers; it is also fully compatible with any Android or iOS smartphone or tablet, making it an excellent portable recording solution.

It comes with a professional pop filter for minimising plosives, as well as a tripod mount for perfect positioning on a desktop. It also features a zero-latency headphone output for monitoring audio with no distracting echo or delay, complete with level and monitor mix controls. With its plug-and-play connectivity, included extras and all-in-one design, the NT-USB+ is the ultimate microphone for anyone who wants to record professional sound effortlessly.
