Give your voice a rich, full, radio-ready sound with the Rode Broadcaster, a large-diaphragm condenser microphone designed specifically for broadcast, voice-over, radio, and podcast applications. The 1" gold-plated capsule, low-noise circuitry, and pronounced proximity effect work together to deliver a warm and robust tone worthy of pro-level productions. Plus, the mic's cardioid polar pattern naturally rejects sound behind the mic, picking up less background noise than many other polar responses.

Following broadcast tradition, it is an end-address mic with a clip that works with stands or boom arms (available separately). Unlike most mics, it has a special LED that can be used for "On-Air" indication when properly wired to a compatible console. Whereas many mics require an external screen to inhibit jarring "p" and "b" sounds, the Broadcaster has an internal pop filter designed to control such plosives. Being a true condenser mic, the Broadcaster should be connected via an XLR mic cable (available separately) to a mixer channel, mic preamp, or audio device that can supply phantom power.

For Radio, Broadcasts, and Podcasts

The Broadcaster is a large-diaphragm, end-address condenser microphone designed to provide the ultimate performance for broadcast vocal applications. Its rich, full-quality tailored response has an emphasized proximity effect that has made it a standard in radio stations the world over. It is equally suitable as a podcast mic or a voice-over microphone for film and television.

Internal Pop Filter

The Broadcaster features an internal pop filter, designed to minimize vocal plosive sounds that can overload the microphone capsule and distort the audio output.

High-Pass Filter

In addition to the Broadcaster's native 20 Hz to 20 kHz response, a selectable high-pass (low-cut) filter at 75 Hz is available to prevent low-end noise such as air conditioners and traffic from being recorded.

On-Air Indicator

The Broadcaster features an innovative "On-Air" indicator on the body that can be wired for external activation by the "Channel On/Mute" function on many consoles. If not connected to a console or switch, the indicator will remain lit whenever the microphone has power.
