What Is The Rodecaster?
Galleon Studios is proud to add the Rode Rodecaster to hire at their Podcast Studios. If you want to podcast professionally you need the right kit. Yes, you can have great mics but after recording it’s often necessary to go back and add title music, sound fx and even ads. What if you could do all that on the fly as you record? Well now with the Rodecaster from Rode you can.
The Rodecaster is an all-in-one sound desk and is our solution to recording your Podcast hassle-free. It has 4 XLR inputs. This means our condenser mics plug straight in. It also has options for other types of mic likes Dynamic and those built by Rode. The Rode PodMic, The Procaster, The Broadcaster, The NT1, NT1-A. and NT2-A. These pre-sets are custom modes for those types of mic but the Rodecaster will work with any XLR mics.
What’s more, the Rodecaster has USB, 3.5mil jack and Bluetooth inputs. This means if you have a Podcast guest who can’t make it they can dial in. This can work with Skype, Whatsapp or normal voice calls. Hooking your phone up in this way means that you truly have an interactive medium. Now both guests and your subscribers can call in and converse with you.
Those inputs can also be used to play music, video clips or sounds. However, a truly unique option in the feature packed Rodecaster are the 8 assignable buttons that make up the sound pads. Each of these sound pads already has a built-in sound effect; theme music, laughter, cheers, spooky stinger, birds chirping, a harp, a high-hat and a wah-wah-wah. Yet each effect is customizable and unlimited. You can program 8, 16 or more sound effects in.
Use them for:
- Theme music
- Record your stock ending and re-use it with every recording
- Jingles for each section of your Podcast
- And more!
Adjust Your Voice
If you don’t feel you have the right voice for Podcasting think again.
The Rodecaster can adjust the timbre of your voice and that of your guests. Each mic can be adjusted specifically for the person speaking.
