The NT-USB Mini serves up the pristine sound quality of RODE's world-renowned studio mics in a compact, easy-to-use USB microphone. Featuring a high-quality condenser capsule with RF shielding and excellent capsule isolation, it delivers professional-sounding audio in any application, from recording vocals and instruments, to podcasting and voiceovers, to gaming and streaming.
An in-built pop filter reduces plosives and its pickup pattern has been optimized to reduce extraneous noise like room reverberation, air conditioning and traffic, and focus on what's in front of it. Studio-quality sound without the need for a studio.
The NT-USB Mini is also a incredibly simple to use. It features a class-compliant USB output to direct recording to a computer or tablet. No drivers or software are needed, and no external power required to operate, just plug in and hit record. It works seamlessly with any recording software or streaming app, and studio-quality 24-bit, 48KHz A/D conversion ensures extremely low distortion and very high dynamic range, delivering incredible audio every time.
The NT-USB Mini features a studio-grade headphone amplifier and a high-quality 3.5mm headphone output, complete with precision volume control, allowing you to easily monitor your audio. There is also a switchable zero-latency monitoring mode for eliminating distancing echo when tracking vocals or recording instruments.
Sleek, Compact, Flexible
The NT-USB Mini has been designed to be as flexible as the modern content creator needs to be. Its unique magnetic desk stand provides a sturdy base for reducing noise from knocks and bumps and is easily removable, allowing the mic to be quickly detached and placed on a studio arm or mic stand. This and the integrated 360-degree swing mount means you can position the mic upright, on an angle, sideways or upside down - wherever it needs to be to get the best recoding possible.
At just 89mm wide and 141mm tall, the NT-USB is very compact, taking up only a fraction of precious desktop real estate. It also looks fantastic. Sleek and stylish, with clean lines and a modern aesthetic, it's the perfect addition to any setup.
Hard-wearing steel and reinforced nylon resin construction ensure the NT-USB Mini is ready to take on the rigors of recording anywhere and everywhere. It is made from the highest quality components in RODE's precision manufacturing facilities.
