You can use it on any platform with any major recording software, thanks to the class-compliant USB output. You can use Mac, PC, and iOS to stream with your audience, record your podcast, interview, or original music. It has an onboard D/A conversion rate of 24-bit/48kHz to ensure your audio remains clean and clear at all times. You may think that the NT-USB Mini is too good to be true, but Sweetwater’s audio professionals assure you that this mic is the real deal. If you’re ready to take your vocal recordings to the next level, the Rode NT-USB Mini can help you get there.
Ideal for almost any application
No matter what your skill level is, the NT-USB Mini’s simple operation makes it easy to create impressive recordings in no time. The secret to its sonic success is twofold. First, the capsule has been modified to add a pleasing warmth to vocals. The second key to success lies in the directional cardioid polar pattern that picks up more of your voice and less of your room’s background noise. Throw in the built-in pop filter, and this mic is ready to capture studio-grade recordings. The NT-USB Mini is also resistant to RF interference. This means that it can be placed close to your gaming setup or other external devices while still providing clear audio reproduction. Whether you’re a brand-new podcaster or a seasoned streaming legend, the Rode NT-USB Mini makes capturing high-quality audio easier than ever.
Pro-level headphone amplifier
The NT-USB Mini has a built-in headphone amplifier that makes it easy to monitor your audio. The 3.5mm headphone output offers zero-latency monitoring. Simply press the volume knob, and the audio will be routed directly through your headphones to eliminate annoying echoes. This feature is perfect for narration and spoken word applications, where an echo can throw you off your game. Two helpful LED indicator lights indicate how you’re monitoring the feed.
Mount it your way
Every creator has different needs, so the NT-USB Mini can accommodate many different mounting configurations. It ships with a magnetic desk stand that deadens accidental noise from bumps and brushes. The stand attaches securely to any magnetic surface, allowing you to record anywhere you want. And yes, you can stick it to your fridge to record vocals — if you’re into that sort of thing. Even when you’re not using the magnetic stand, the NT-USB Mini is very versatile. It has a standard mic mount with 360º swivel ability that lets you position it any way you feel like. This is ideal for streaming setups where a discrete mic placement is a must. Wherever and however you’re using it, the NT-USB Mini’s small footprint and versatile mounting ability is sure to fit into your workflow.
Minimized footprint, maximized Sound
Rode knows how valuable your desktop real estate can be. That’s why they designed the NT-USB Mini to be as space-conscious as possible. Coming in at just 3.5″ wide and 5.5″ tall, this mic and stand take up a minuscule 3.5″-diameter circle of desk space. Combine that small footprint with the ultra-clear 24-bit/48kHz audio resolution, and you have one seriously powerful mic. If you’re looking for a powerful mic with a compact footprint, the Rode NT-USB Mini is the one for you.
