RODE X Streamer X Audio Interface and Video Streaming Console
The All-in-One Streaming Solution
Combining a professional audio interface and a video capture card in one ultracompact, intuitive package, the Streamer X from RODE X represents a new way to livestream incredible, broadcast-quality audio and video. Sporting a studio-grade audio input for mic- or line-level sources, a low-noise, high-gain Revolution preamp with selectable phantom power, and powerful onboard APHEX audio processing, the Streamer X makes it easy to deliver pristine audio quality to your streams, and the Streamer X even features integrated wireless-receiver technology for compatibility with any RODE Series IV wireless microphones and transmitters.

Of course, modern streamers and content creators need quality video to keep up with the competition as well, and that's why the Streamer X also features HDMI I/O that supports up to 4K 30 fps and 2K 60 fps streaming, and up to 2K 120 fps and 4K 60 fps pass-through for exceptional video quality that will enhance any modern application from gaming, streaming, and podcasting to video content creation and corporate presentations. Two dedicated USB-C connections allow for dual-PC setups, and with the four customizable SMART pads, you can trigger sounds, voice FX, and other types of engaging material on the fly. And if that's not enough, you can expand your console's functionality with full compatibility for all of RODE's software solutions, such as UNIFY, RODE Central, and RODE Connect.

Flexible I/O
Despite its compact size, the Streamer X sports just the right amount of connections to facilitate most livestreaming applications.

  • An XLR-1/4" combo input jack with a Revolution preamp and selectable 48V phantom power
  • A 1/4" headphone output for monitoring your streams
  • A 3.5mm headset output to join in on your streaming and produce more engaging content
  • HDMI input and output/through for streaming and passing through high-quality, 4K video
  • Two USB-C connections for dual-computer setups
  • A third USB-C connection for convenient bus power
  • A Kensington security slot to keep your Streamer X secure during use in public spaces
Intuitive Interface
The interface is designed to be simple yet powerful with easy-to-use colorful buttons and knobs. Two color-coded knobs let you control your audio input and headphone output.

Multicolor customizable SMART pads allow you to trigger sounds and vocal FX in real time, and you can switch through multiple banks of sounds via the arrow buttons. You can activate or deactivate audio or video content directly with the two dedicated front-panel buttons.

Tiny Footprint, Huge Potential
The Streamer X provides incredible streaming potential in a miniscule form factor that is supremely easy to transport and will take up an absolute minimum of your workspace real estate. Whether used in the comfort of your home studio or in a live public setting, the Streamer X is compact, efficient, and attractive.
512 AUDIO Limelight Dynamic Vocal XLR Microphone
Brought about by Warm Audio's team of expert engineers specifically for podcasters, live streamers, and broadcasters, the 512 AUDIO Limelight dynamic vocal XLR microphone offers build quality, tone, and features that extend beyond its price class. Like all of Warm Audio's pro audio gear, the Limelight mic is designed to produce a great sound without gratuitous tweaking after the recording.
It utilizes a large-diaphragm dynamic capsule and special circuity, tuned for optimal clarity and richness of speech. Even more directional than cardioid mics, the Limelight opts for a hypercardioid polar pattern to capture your voice with less background noise. If traffic-induced rumble or excessive bass from proximity effect need to be lessened, simply switch on the internal high-pass filter. As a passive dynamic mic, it needs no phantom power; just connect its XLR 3-pin output to a mic preamp with an XLR mic cable (available separately) and crank up the gain.
This microphone is part of the B&H Virtual Mic Locker, an online tool to help our valued customers determine the sonic differences between popular microphones for podcasting and voice over work. Each microphone was recorded using a Grace Design M103 preamp into a Presonus Quantum 2626 interface.
Clarity of Speech
Limelight is precision-tuned to focus on the frequencies that capture the richness of voice and speech, so your audience can enjoy your talk-focused content with the clarity you'd expect from a world-class broadcast facility.
Built on Legacy
Designed by an expert team of engineers and built on the vintage-inspired legacy of Warm Audio, Limelight combines a large-diaphragm dynamic capsule with special circuitry to produce smooth, clear broadcast audio with a 50 Hz to 15 kHz frequency response that's sculpted for close-range vocal duty.
More Voice and Less Noise
With a hyper-focused pickup pattern that's nearly 20% narrower than a standard cardioid microphone, Limelight captures your voice while rejecting unwanted room noise around you.
No Pops
A built-in pop shield blocks intrusive plosives from consonants like p, b, and f, for an uncompromised sound and less audio cleanup in post.
Goodbye Rumble
The switchable 100 Hz low-frequency filter prevents unwanted noise and low-end rumble, for more control over your sound.
Easy Setup
Included with Limelight is a 360° swivel mount, which helps you achieve perfect placement on a mic stand or boom arm.
512 AUDIO 512-BBA Microphone Boom Arm

Equipped with a silent high-tension spring hidden from view and the ability to rotate 360°, the 512-BBA Microphone Boom Arm from 512 AUDIO offers sleek, quiet, and easy mic positioning for podcasters, content creators, novice broadcasters, and radio show hosts. Its two arms allow up to 31.5" of horizontal reach, plenty to put the mic right where you need it. The 512-BBA's steel construction provides stability while supporting a studio or broadcast mic weighing up to 3 lb (including a clip/mount).

Since the 512-BBA is compatible with 5/8"-27 and 3/8"-16 threads, it works with most mic clips and shockmounts. It attaches to a desk or table via an extrawide C-clamp that utilizes an antiscratch pad to prevent damaging the finish of your worksurface. For nonpermanent setups, the 512-BBA can be fully collapsed to ensure compact storage between sessions.

Bring Your Sound Closer
With professional looks and a reliable high-tension spring hinge, 512-BBA easily stays in place without any additional tightening or adjustments. Bring your mic closer to your voice and away from distracting vibrations caused by typing, desk movement, or noisy fans.
Sturdy Microphone Support
The 512-BBA features a durable yet lightweight steel construction that easily holds most professional recording and broadcast microphones weighing up to 3 lb.
Perfect Mic Placement
Whether your perfect placement is over your monitor or stretched across the table, 512-BBA's 360° of arm rotation and smooth, dual-axis swivel let you enjoy a full range of motion to effortlessly find the optimal mic placement.
Silent Adjustments
512-BBA is outfitted with a silent spring design, so you can make all the adjustments you want without making a sound.
Extrawide Desk Mount
The sturdy metal C-clamp desk mount attaches to any surface up to 2" thick and includes an antiscratch pad to protect your desk.
Simple Cable Management
Keep your setup clean and clutter-free with the included touch fastener wraps for quick and simple cable management.
Universal Compatibility
Compatible with virtually any microphone, 512-BBA accommodates 3/8"-16 and 5/8"-27 threaded shockmounts or mic clips to make mounting a snap.
Fully Collapsible
The boom arm tucks away in an instant for compact and easy storage whenever you're off the air.

No information is provided for color space via HDMI. The only bit depth specification that has been provided is for the audio, which is 24-bit.

Does it incorporate adjustable audio delay in order to lip-sync the video (like in the Black Magic ATEM series)?
Asked by: Terence
Yes, unfortunately a 3rd party software solution such as OBS adds another layer of complexity, and you are now tethered to a computer, which is why I use an ATEM switcher. Once set up it can be computer independent. The main attraction of the Rode switcher is its battery / remote capability in a compact hardware switcher. However, without adjustable audio delay in the firmware it defeats why I would buy this unit. If Rode ever adds this feature it would make an excellent, stand-alone, remote broadcast box I would have a use for.
