RODE PodMic Reviews
rode has shown high quality for a great price
microphone quality used with a GOXLR has been great quality in my experience.
This is all you need to get started
Want to start your new podcast tomorrow. With this kit and B&H's one day delivery you can. And you just can't beat Rode's excellent pod mic or those great Sony Headphones. Top quality at an affordable price.
Rode for Podcasting
It's a gorgeous mic for newbies. Easy to connect, high quality, reasonable price. Highly recommend getting a table arm as well, as it becomes easier to record this way. Good price/value ratio!
RODEcaster Pro's Robin: 99 bucks Shure SM7B
Just use the RODEcaster Pro preset specially made for this mic, enable the 'APHEX Big Bottom' feature and add a pop filter and you have a 99 bucks Shure SM7B. It is really that simple. Pro Tip: Wanna make it look even cooler? Reporter Store sells colorful pop filters for this mic. I got the red one but the light blue looks rad too!
SM7B for 300 bucks less
Do not be mistaken... this thing is right up there with the industry standard Sure SM7B. Even build quality is comparable. The thing is beefy and glorious in all the right ways. I recorded a podcast episode with the SM7B and with the podmic and had a few people tell me which they thought was better out of the gate... almost all of them chose the podmic. From a technical standpoint they might be wrong. I will say, if you're pairing this with the Rodecaster - you are making the right decision! Dump four of these and a Rodecaster in your cart and checkout immediately!
This is initial impressions, based on a single commercial voiceover session with this mic. This thing rocks. It's about two pounds of solid brass, the overall build is quite impressive. The integral threads make for a fast and easy setup. The sound quality for the intended application is just fabulous, in my opinion. Clean, full, perhaps a little wet. I bought the Auray foam screen and it helps a lot with plosives- probably should be included. I am not a microphone obsessive (or connoisseur, to choose a nicer word) but I am a professional user, so without turning this into something that reads like a wine review, I will just say that I am extremely happy with the performance of this and feel it represents a very good value. And made in Australia- electronics that aren't coming out of sweatshops, how's that for a change of pace?! This is Rode quality all the way, five stars for sure.
Amazing starting mic
Great mic for someone starting to get into audio. Great vocal dynamics and easy to setup with minimal gain needed to sound good. Highly recommend to anyone looking to get a quality mic but not hurt the wallet.
