The Rode NT1-A iOS Studio Package
from B&H requires only your iPad or computer to create a fully-functional recording system. It includes a Rode NT1-A large diaphragm condenser microphone, a Focusrite iTrack Solo audio interface, a pair of headphones, and an Ultimate Support table-top mic stand.
The NT1-A is a large-diaphragm side-address condenser microphone features a 1" diaphragm with a gold-plated membrane, which provides a wide frequency response. The cardioid polar pattern minimizes off-axis noise. The balanced, transformerless output circuitry results in low-noise signal reproduction even at high output levels. The NT1-A requires 48V phantom power. It comes bundled with a studio-grade shock mount with an integrated pop filter, a 20' premium cable, a dust cover and a bonus DVD.
The Focusrite iTrack Solo audio interface is compatible with iPad, PC and Mac. It features a Focusrite microphone preamplifier with an XLR input, and a 1/4" Hi-Z instrument input. It also features dual RCA phono monitor outputs and a Direct Monitor Switch that eliminates any latency during recording. The iTrack Solo can provide 48V Phantom power and supports digital resolution up to 24-bit / 96 kHz. It even comes with a host of free music making software including Ableton Live Lite 8 and the Focusrite Scarlett Plug-In Suite. The included 30-pin to Lightning adapter assures its compatibility with multiple generations of iPads, including the iPad air.
The SMH-1000 headphones are ideal for professional applications, such as studio monitoring or DJ mixing. They feature large drivers that provide clear, detailed audio with a wide frequency response. The closed-back design helps reduce ambient noise while swivel earcups provide easy single-ear monitoring. The headphones can also fold down for easy storage in the included carrying bag. The gold-plated 3.5mm mini plug and included 1/4" adapter provide wide compatibility with professional and consumer audio products.
