Auto-Sensing Mic Inputs

The interface’s two mic inputs are auto-sensing jacks, allowing them to accept signal from a broad range of TRS/TRRS microphones without requiring additional adapters. Whether you use a third-party mic or rely on RØDE’s popular mics, such as the SmartLav+, Lavalier GO, RØDELink Lav, or any VideoMic with 3.5mm outputs, the AI-Micro lets you simultaneously record two mics to your computer or mobile device at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz digital resolution.

Convenient Headphone Monitoring

There’s no need to guess and hope that your audio quality is clean; just monitor the live signal or playback via the built-in, high-quality, zero-latency headphone port. It utilizes a 3.5mm mini-jack output, allowing it to work with most wired earbuds, as well as on-ear and over-ear headphones.

Broad Device Compatibility

Thanks to the supplied cables, the AI-Micro is compatible with USB Type-A, USB Type-C, and Lightning devices. Use it with your Mac/Windows computer, iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone/tablet, and even bounce between recording devices.

Ready for Anywhere

Since the AI-Micro boasts an exceptionally small footprint, you can hold it in the palm of your hand easily or tuck it away in a pocket. Plus, it is bus powered, so you never have to worry about swapping batteries or recharging it.

App-Based Optimization

On its own, the interface is exceedingly straightforward to use. For those who want to go beyond “face value,” there are extended features, functionality, and configuration available through RØDE’s suite of intuitive apps, including RØDE Central, RØDE Connect, and RØDE Reporter.
