RODE Procaster Reviews
Great for the K-12 education space
We are using these microphones in our audio engineering learning spaces and it has been the perfect fit for our needs.
It stop working
I was very happy with my purchase until the mic stopped working after a year. It was used occasionally in a computer setup in a home office space for Zoom and Teams meetings. All my equipment is in good shape and everything is working properly except for this mic. I would not recommend it.
One of the best mics I've used
For the money and quality it's hard to beat this mic. I use it with a Procaster board, so even better.
Awesome kit! Get a different pop filter though.
It is a great kit, the boom arm and shock mount alone make it worth the price. The XLR cable is good, I did end up replacing it for a better cable with Neutrik connectors, though. The only weak point in the entire kit is the pop filter. After a couple uses the connection point on the ring clam became loose. There is unfortunately no way to repair it, it looks as if it is pressed in there. I was planning on replacing it anyways, so it is not a big deal.
Bought this mic to use for webcasting, teaching in Zoom meetings as well as online calls. I hook it up to my Tascam mixer and then into an ATEM mini pro. It provides excellent audio, better than using the computer's mic for webcasting.
The sound quality blew my mind. I've been using various microphones over the years but these took the cake. Clear, Crisp, professional. Considering what you're paying it's worth it. (plus they just look beautiful...)
Great mic for voice work/podcasts
I have had a Procaster for over a year and love the sound. It is a quality dynamic mic that works well in the online world of podcasts, online presentations, and voice work. I gave mine to someone who needed it and am happy to get another due to it's quality and sound. If I can give one piece of advice to everyone who is working from home, stop using your computer or headset's microphone and buy one that tells everyone you are a professional.
Great. Just a step down from the SM7B
I have a podcast where I mostly interview a solo guest. For that we use two Shure SM7Bs. Whenever we'd have a pair of guests, we'd put them on the 7Bs and I'd just use a Rode Podmic. I wasn't happy with how thin the Podmic sounded compared to the other mics (not a fair comparison due to the price, I know) so I got this as an upgrade. I couldn't be happier. The sound is almost as smooth as the SM7B, but it doesn't have that dark feel to it. It also has bit more clarity on the high end. It's almost like using the 7B with both the low-cut filter and the presence boost enabled. If I were to compare it to Shure mics, it's somewhere between the sound of the Beta 58a and the SM7B, in terms of sound (and price). A couple of things I really about this mic... 1) Background noise rejection is great, comparable to some handhelds. 2) It's gain hungry, but not as much as the Rode Podmic or Shure SM7B. A couple of things I wasn't too crazy about... 1) The included mount isn't that great. It does nothing to stop bumps from the table. (I used a cheap shock mount for large mics and found that it did the trick.) 2) The mic isn't good with handling noise. I know it's not meant for holding, but since a shock mount isn't included, you really have to be careful of noisy bumps.
