The NT-USB+ is based on the original NT-USB, which was released in 2014 and has long been an industry-standard professional USB microphone for musicians, podcasters, streamers, and other creators. Featuring the same iconic form factor and studio-quality sound as the original, the NT-USB+ builds on this legacy with a number of next-generation enhancements and is set to become a modern classic.
It features a studio-grade condenser capsule that evokes the sound of a classic large-diaphragm condenser microphone, with a full frequency response and tight cardioid polar pattern for clear, focused audio.
The NT-USB+ features enhanced circuitry, with RØDE’s ultra-low-noise, high-gain Revolution Preamp technology, as well as upgraded high-resolution 24-bit/48kHz analog-to-digital conversion for pristine audio quality.
It also boasts powerful internal DSP, which allows you to apply advanced APHEX audio processing. This includes a high-pass filter for cutting out low-end rumble, a noise gate for eliminating background noise, a compressor for delivering punchy and balanced sound, and the legendary Aural Exciter and Big Bottom effects for rich, broadcast tone.
This studio-quality processing can be activated via the companion app RØDE Central for use with any other software or application. It is also available in RØDE’s free podcasting and streaming software, RØDE Connect.
Connectivity wise, there’s a class-compliant USB-C output that is plug-and-play compatible with Mac and Windows computers; it is also fully compatible with any Android or iOS smartphone or tablet.
It also features a zero-latency headphone output for monitoring audio with no distracting echo or delay, complete with level and monitor mix controls.
“The original NT-USB was an instant success when it launched almost a decade ago, setting a lofty standard for studio-quality USB microphones,” said RØDE CEO Damien Wilson.
“With the NT-USB+, we are setting a new standard. We have kept the form factor and functionality that made the original such a success and introduced several new features, integrating cutting-edge technology for the next wave of creators.
“Plug-and-play USB audio has never sounded this good.”
