Overview by GAK
The NT-USB Mini has the great sound quality of Rode’s world-class studio mics all contained in a compact USB microphone that’s easy to use. It has been designed to provide clear, professional-quality audio direct to a computer or tablet. The NT-USB Mini is ideal for musicians, streamers, gamers, podcasters, and content creators who want great sound quality in a small easy to use package.
It has a directional cardioid polar pattern and is designed to reduce room sound and focus on the subject whether it’s instruments, vocals, or dialogue, making it super versatile, while the built-in pop filter reduces plosives. It has built-in digital signal processing - noise gate, compressor, APHEX Aural Exciter and Big Bottom (which can be found on Rode Connect).
There’s an integrated 360-degree swing mount letting you easily position the NT-USB on a desktop, mic stand or studio arm, so you can position the mic on an angle, sideways, upright, or whatever you need to get the best sound. The unique detachable magnetic desk stand gives you great isolation from knocks and bumps so you don’t need to pay attention to it while focusing on creating content. The USB output lets you plug into a computer or tablet without the need to download drivers or software - you can just plug in and record straight away. The 3.5mm headphone output provides zero latency to get rid of distracting echo.
The NT-USB has a steel and reinforced nylon resin build making it extremely durable, and has a sleek black matte finish. It’s just 89mm wide and 141mm tall, so it will only take up a small amount of desktop space.
