Details

Major Firmware 2.0 Update Highlighted Features

  • Save and load a snapshot of the RØDECaster's settings – called 'Shows'
     
  • Podcast Transfer Mode – allows users to transfer podcasts direct from the microSD to a computer 
     
  • New sound pad functionality
     
  • New broadcast-ready features (pre-fade listen, "off-air" caller communication & more).
     
  • Tweaked audio engine for clearer, sparklier podcasts


Introducing the Rode Rodecaster PRO Podcast Kit

Firmware 2.0 Features:


Podcast Transfer Mode


One of the most common requests we’ve had from users is the ability to access podcasts stored on the microSD card directly from the unit without having to take the card out and putting it into a computer. That’s exactly what ‘Podcast Transfer Mode’ allows you to do – it essentially turns your RØDECaster Pro into a microSD card reader!

To access, choose Settings > Hardware > microSD Card and enable ‘Podcast Transfer Mode’. Once enabled, the microSD card will appear in the Finder on a Mac or File Explorer on Windows. You can also use the companion app to access and manage files as before. Note that when the RØDECaster is in ‘Podcast Transfer Mode’ all other functionality is disabled.



Powerful New Sound Pad Functionality


When you download the firmware, you will notice there is a new sound pad playback indicator button on the home screen of your RØDECaster. This icon indicates (by colour) which sound pad is currently playing, as well as how much time that pad has before the sound ends. If you have multiple pads playing at once, the icon will show the pad that will end soonest.

This icon is also a handy shortcut to the sound pad configuration screen. The new firmware allows you to modify settings that you could previously only accessed in the companion app, such as colour-coding the pads and setting the playback mode.

There is also a new playback mode called “Pause” – this allows you to pause playback by pressing the pad. The pad will blink to indicate its paused. To resume, press the pad again. To stop, press and hold the pad.

Lastly, you can now store up to 8 banks of sounds (64 in total)! Super handy if you produce multiple podcasts or your show is very sound-focused. Keep in mind that these populate dynamically – a new bank is added each time you fill up the preceding bank.



New Broadcast-Ready Features


We’ve also added a number of features for those of you who are using the RØDECaster Pro in a broadcast context – live podcasts, video streaming and so on. These features accessed via the new 'Audio' screen (Settings > Hardware > Advanced > Audio).

First of all, we’ve added a few features when it comes to using the RØDECaster Pro’s monitor outputs. You can now disable the main output level control knob (Monitor Outputs > Disable Level Knob). This will bypass the level control entirely, defaulting to standard line level regardless of the position of the control knob. This is particularly handy if you are using the monitor output to feed into a recorder or live stream and want to make sure you don’t accidentally change the level.

There is also a button to automatically mute the monitor outputs when faders are open to prevent feedback when using monitors (Monitor Outputs > Automatically Mute Outputs).

Another new feature that is commonly found on broadcast consoles is the ability to switch the solo button to enable pre-fade listen mode (Channels > Enable Pre-Fade Listen). When engaged, the ‘host’ (headphone output 1) be able to will hear what is coming out of that channel at unity gain, even if the fader is completely down. This is perfect for previewing the volume or content of a channel before fading it into a recording.

Finally, the ‘host’ (channel 1) can now speak with callers on the USB, Smartphone and Bluetooth channels without the conversation being recorded or going to the monitor outputs. To enable this, press both the Solo and Mute buttons on channel 1, then both the Solo and Mute buttons on any of the channels you want to speak to (can be multiple channels if you have multiple callers). 

Last but not least, the RØDECaster Pro’s audio processing engine has been tweaked to make your podcasts sound even better!

Connect and record

The 4 high-quality microphone channels are able to power studio condenser microphones as well as conventional dynamic microphones. You can quickly connect microphones for you and your guests with automatic level setting and one-touch recording to a microSD card. You can literally be recording your first podcast within minutes of taking the RØDECaster Pro out

Sound Effects and Jingles

The RØDECaster Pro comes with eight programmable sound effects pads, for instant triggering of sound effects, music, jingles, applause and ads – perfect for giving your podcast that professional quality. You can record audio direct to the programmable pads from any input, or simply “drag and drop” files from your computer using the supplied software. You can even select your favourite colours for the pad illumination.

Phone calls 

Have a remote guest you want to interview? Simply connect your phone to the RØDECaster Pro via Bluetooth™ or with a TRRS cable. The RØDECaster Pro automatically provides “mix-minus” audio to prevent echo being heard by the caller, without the need to purchase dedicated and costly hardware. Telephone interviews with remote guest never sounded so good!

Class A Servo-biased Preamps

The RØDECaster Pro’s pristine preamps and outputs feature Class A circuitry, as featured on broadcast consoles that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The Class A preamps provide a much cleaner gain structure with lower levels of distortion, providing an incredibly clean, low-noise signal. The Preamps are also servo-biased, keeping distortion levels low. Your signal is broadcast-pure.

APHEX® On board

Your pristine signal can also be enhanced with the legendary patented audio processors, APHEX Aural Exciter™ and APHEX Big Bottom™. These have been incorporated in the audio processing section of the RØDECaster Pro, and your sound will have that rich, warm tone only found in professional studios. The RØDECaster Pro also features multistage dynamics, such as compression, limiting, de-essing and noise-gating.

Recording options

The RØDECaster Pro operates as a standalone unit straight out of the box, recording direct to a microSD™ card. You can be up and running in minutes. The RØDECaster Pro can also connect to your computer via USB, as it is a USB audio interface. This means you can record your podcast to your favourite recording software. The RØDECaster Pro is also able to seamlessly stream a live show

Going beyond what a traditional mixing console does, this podcasting studio uniquely combines a set of powerful features in a slick and compact all-in-one package. It offers four high-quality XLR mic inputs, four discrete headphone outputs, eight faders to control audio levels, APHEX processing for rich and warm voice tone, eight programmable sound pads for launching jingles and FX, instant mix-minus for echo-free phone or app calls, as well as Bluetooth, USB, and TRRS connectivity. You can also record direct to an onboard microSD card or to your computer via USB.

Easy-to-use with intuitive controls and a large full-color touchscreen, the RodeCaster Pro is ready to use within minutes of opening the box. Just add mics (such as the Rode Procaster), booms and pop filters, headphones, and a microSD card, and you're good to start recording your podcast or begin streaming it live via your smartphone or computer.
