Rode launches RodeCaster Pro II — all-in-one audio for content creators

Rode has just unveiled its latest innovation, the RodeCaster Pro II, giving content creators a powerful production studio tool that brings a host of groundbreaking features. Rode combines its audio expertise to create superior sound quality and all-in-one studio solutions for forward-looking streamers, podcasters, musicians and content creators.

Rode has released next-generation audio gear across all genres of content creation over the past few months and, in most cases, has maintained a level of affordability that puts content creation in the hands of the masses. Rode released high-quality content and creator-friendly gear at breakneck speeds from its NTH 100 headphones, Podcaster microphone, and even the tiny Rode Wireless Go II.

Anyone familiar with the RodeCaster Pro will immediately recognize the similarities between the first iteration and the more compact second-generation audio solution. There are large, brightly colored knobs and control sliders to make running your podcast, stream or studio session easier, but aside from the obvious aesthetic similarities, there are plenty of new features in the RØDECaster Pro II. .

Users will be able to take advantage of the built-in audio editing features to speed things up in post. The RodeCaster Pro II offers two USB-C connection options, Ethernet and WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. You will also find a microSD port on the device, which gives users the option of recording to a microSD card and saving their computer’s hard drive. Via the USB-C port you can connect an external SSD if you want to record on it. Below is a list of the main features of the RodeCaster Pro II.
