Bundled by B&H for your convenience, this Rode NT-1 Kit gives you almost everything you need to record silky smooth vocals for sung or spoken-word applications. First of all, you get the Rode NT-1, which offers a smooth high-end, a detailed midrange, and a warm bass response. With the NT-1's frequency response, you'll be able to record present, intimate-sounding vocals.

Next, you'll notice the Scarlett Solo 2x2, a no-frills interface with a studio-ready sound. The preamps in particular are noteworthy: they offer an Air circuit which is modeled on Focusrite's legendary ISA preamplifier. Use the Air circuit on your sung vocals to give them an extra sizzle. With the provided XLR cable, you can plug the microphone straight into the interface.

The included tripod mic stand offers a boom arm to position the microphone to your desired height and angle. The kit also gives you a pair of over-ear, closed-back headphones. Use these headphones to monitor your voice while ensuring there's no bleed from your headphones into the mic, thanks to their closed-back construction.

With the microphone, the interface, the mic stand, the cable, and the headphones, you'll have almost everything you need to get started recording vocals. All you need to bring to the table is your own computer—that, and your innate talent.

Rode NT1-KIT Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Condenser Microphone

Combining a redesigned true condenser capsule, ultralow-noise transformerless circuitry, and an extremely durable housing, the Rode NT1-KIT large-diaphragm cardioid microphone is well suited for high-resolution digital recording of vocal and instrument sources at home, in the studio, or even on stage. Plus, its bundle of accessories—shockmount, pop filter, XLR cable, and dust cover—help the NT1-KIT serve singers, rappers, and podcasters especially well.

While the body of the NT1 still resembles the NT1-A, the mic has been completely revamped except for the mesh grille. It features Rode's updated HF6 capsule, which is designed to provide a detailed midrange response with smooth highs and warm bass. The HF6 capsule is suspended inside the microphone using Rycote's industry-leading Lyre system to help reduce vibration and handling noises. Also, with self-noise measured at only 4.5 dBA, the NT1 is an exceedingly quiet microphone. Since it can run on 24 or 48 VDC phantom power, the NT1 can be used with a variety of professional and entry-level XLR mic preamps

NT1 vs NT1-A

Although the body of the NT1 closely resembles the NT1-A, the microphone has been completely redesigned from the ground up, with the only shared component being the mesh grille. Rode's design engineers approached the NT1 as a marriage of innovation and tradition, starting with the capsule, which is a completely new design. Codenamed the HF6, it is the perfect example of Rode's fusion of artistic design approaches and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, and features a sound signature reminiscent of the famous microphones of old while at the same time exhibiting extremely low noise.

Tone Signature

It has been developed with a focus on detailed midrange response, coupled with silky smooth high frequencies, and warm, round bass reproduction to make the NT1 an absolute standout in its class.

Internally Shock-Mounted Capsule

The transducer itself is suspended inside the microphone using Rycote's industry-leading Lyre system, minimizing external vibrations at the capsule level. The capsule is then married to high-grade electronics that have been designed to provide an extremely low noise level. The NT1 is an incredibly quiet microphone, measuring only 4.5 dBA of self-noise.

Durable Housing

The NT1's body is machined from 6061 aluminum and then nickel plated for resistance against corrosion. Finally it is coated in a durable, military-grade ceramic layer, using advanced electrostatic application techniques developed by Rode to ensure an extremely hard wearing finish that is resistant to scratches or marks.

Bundled Accessories

The NT1 is supplied with the SM6, a high-quality suspension shockmount that provides isolation from external physical factors that may cause unwanted rumble and vibrations in the microphone. It includes a removable pop shield with two axes of adjustment and a telescopic arm for ultimate application versatility. The mic also comes with a balanced XLR microphone cable.

Features at a Glance

  • Large 1" capsule with gold-plated membrane
  • Cardioid polar pattern rejects off-axis sound behind the mic

Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2x2 USB Audio Interface (3rd Generation)

Built to deliver top-shelf sound in a compact, bag-friendly, and easy-to-use format for singers, guitarists, and solo podcasters, the third-generation Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2x2 USB audio interface lets artists and content creators score pro-level tone with no learning curve, no matter where they go.

Equally capable for tracking vocals and instruments, the improved Scarlett microphone preamp features switchable phantom power for condenser mics and a selectable Air circuit, which adds clarity-enhancing brightness based on Focusrite's legendary ISA preamplifier. In addition to the single XLR mic input, the Scarlett Solo provides a single 1/4" input with an instrument/line switch that allows it to accept signal directly from a guitar, bass, synthesizer, or drum machine.

Unlocking the ability to record at standard CD quality or high-fidelity resolutions, the 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA converters ensure that signals are captured and reproduced with detail and accuracy. Listen through headphones or connect active speakers to the balanced 1/4" monitor outputs, and use selectable direct monitoring to hear your live input signal with no distracting echo or latency.

With its bus powering for uninhibited portability, space-saving USB Type-C connection, and extensive software bundle including elementary versions of Ableton Live and Avid Pro Tools music production workstations, virtual instruments, plug-in effects, loops, and more, the Scarlett Solo gives you plenty of powerful tools to kick-start your inspiration; just plug the Scarlett Solo into your Mac/Windows computer or iPad Pro, fire up your preferred audio recording software, and let the creativity flow.

Portable and Bus Powered

As the most compact interface in the Scarlett Series, the Scarlett Solo is rugged and ready to travel with you. Being bus powered via USB Type-C connectivity, it can be used in any room or even remote locations, no AC outlet required.

Pristine, High-Resolution Conversion

Thanks to its high-performance 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA converters, the Scarlett Solo is equipped to capture any source from vocals to acoustic and electric instruments clearly and accurately, so you never have to worry about the interface clouding your sound.

Scarlett Mic Preamp with Customizable Tone

The upgraded third-generation Scarlett mic preamp features switchable 48V phantom power to accommodate your favorite condenser mic and a selectable Air setting, which reproduces the Air effect of Focusrite's original ISA mic preamp to impart enhanced brightness and openness on your vocal recordings.

Direct Instrument/Line Input

A dedicated high-impedance, high-headroom 1/4" input on the Scarlett Solo's front panel allows distortion-free recording of an instrument such as an electric guitar or bass, a synthesizer, or a drum machine, and there's no need for a DI box or an amplifier. At the press of a button, the 1/4" input can be used for a line-level source like a mixer's output or the line out from a guitar/bass amp.

Straightforward Controls and Level Indication

With the Scarlett Solo's Easy Start tool and independent gain knobs with multicolor gain halo meters, you'll have no trouble getting set up and dialing in the perfect levels. Plus, there are no menus or complicated controls to slow you down.

Headphone and Monitor Outputs

The balanced 1/4" TRS monitor outputs on the rear panel ensure hum-free connectivity with balanced studio monitors. For critical listening through headphones, just plug your earphones or headphones into the front-panel 1/4" headphone jack. A large knob is positioned next to the headphone jack for quick adjustment of the monitor and headphone volume.

Latency-Free Monitoring

No musician wants to record if they can't hear their performance clearly. Press the Scarlett Solo's direct monitor switch to listen to your input signals exactly as they are supposed to sound, with no latency and no distracting echo.

Polsen HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones

The HPC-A30-MK2 Closed-Back Studio Monitor Headphones from Polsen offer a solution for experiencing rich and natural sound when listening to music through a mobile device or monitoring a podcast on your computer. These headphones can also be used for DJ work, thanks to the swiveling earcups that let you monitor audio while keeping one ear free.

The HPC-A30-MK2's over-ear design isolates the sound and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions in loud environments, such as a club or on the go. The 10' cable also gives you the freedom to move around while working and terminates in a 1/8" TRS stereo plug, which is compatible with most mobile devices and computers. In addition, a stereo 1/4" adapter is included to plug into a stereo or mixing board.

Mobile

The HPC-A30-MK2 headphones deliver a rich sound for listening to audio on a mobile device. Whether you're listening on a smartphone, an iPod, or a tablet, these headphones deliver detailed sound even in noisy environments.

Over-Ear Design

The over-ear design isolates sound in loud environments and prevents leakage for optimum listening conditions. This design is good for listening to music on a busy street, and for DJs who need to monitor their audio in a noisy club.

DJ Applications

The headphones are suitable for DJ applications and include a tuned bass response for low-end clarity. The pivoting earcups are ideal for one-ear or on-the-shoulder monitoring. A padded headband offers to keep you comfortable during a lengthy session.

Broadcast and Podcast

The headphones allow for monitoring audio on a laptop or in a home studio as well as recording a vlog on a smartphone.

Swiveling and Rotating Earcups

If you're a DJ who likes to keep one ear free, you can swivel one of the earcups for on-the-shoulder monitoring. The earcups also rotate 90° so you can turn one of the earcup outward for one-ear handheld monitoring.

10' Cable

A headphone cable that's too short is almost like sitting on the sidelines—you can't be part of the action. If you need to move around while you work, the 10' cable will allow you to move about freely.
