Your chance to win a superb podcasting bundle by RØDE, worth £1511$1507.
It’s no exaggeration to say that the RØDECaster Pro revolutionised podcasting. Nothing released before or since has combined so many powerful podcasting features, while its touchscreen and ‘one button per function’ interface makes it a cinch to achieve professional-sounding results, whether you’re a novice or a podcasting pro.
On the input side of things, its four Class-A microphone preamps feed into the RØDECaster Pro’s powerful built-in processors: an Aphex Aural Exciter and Big Bottom bass enhancer make your voice sound full and crisp, while digital compression, limiting, de-essing and gating refine things further.
A further input is designed to handle telephone contributors, via either a mini-jack or Bluetooth connection, and the RØDECaster Pro can even output a ‘mix-minus’ signal, to avoid echoes distracting the caller.
Other features include a set of eight programmable sound-triggering pads, onto which you can load or record your own effects, music, jingles and adverts. Each pad can be colour-coded, playback mode can be set on a per-pad basis, and because the pads can be sorted into up to eight banks, a total of 64 different sounds can be triggered at the push of a button.
As for recording, you have two choices: you can use the RØDECaster Pro as a USB audio interface, capturing audio to your DAW of choice, or you can record straight to a microSD card, for truly mobile, laptop-free operation.
And that’s merely scratching the surface. Even better, RØDE keep adding powerful new features too, as we discovered when we looked at the latest v2.1 firmware in our June 2020 edition. SOS Reviews Editor Matt Houghton was particularly pleased with the deeper control over DSP, the addition of a master compressor, and the improved metering — to read the full article, visit www.soundonsound.com/reviews/rode-rodecaster-pro-v2

The Prize Bundle
For this month’s competition, RØDE are giving you the chance to win not only a RØDECaster Pro, but four(!) of their PodMic podcasting microphones (pictured above). The PodMic is a compact and durable dynamic broadcast microphone designed specifically for speech, and the RØDECaster Pro has been specifically designed to work with it — so much so that there’s a dedicated PodMic option available on the RØDECaster’s channel setup page.
To help you get podcasting straight away, RØDE are even including four of their high-quality PSA-1 studio arms, plus four Mogami XLR cables.
