Augmenting its NT-USB Mini USB microphones, released last year for content creators, podcasters and the like, Røde Microphones has introduced a free recording software package that works solely with the mic — Røde Connect.
Intended for podcasting and streaming use with the NT-USB Mini microphone, which was first introduced at NAMM 2020, the software allows users to connect up to four NT-USB Minis to a single computer, offering additional integration with video call and streaming applications, and more.
Available in versions for Mac and PC, Røde Connect provides a virtual recording interface offering faders, level metering, mute buttons and more. The software includes DSP tools such as a noise gate, compressor and Aphex Aural Exciter and Big Bottom effects.
Users can incorporate audio from remote guests, integrate streaming applications, add music beds and other external audio via virtual channels, and the software additionally provides automatic mix-minus on every channel. There are also dedicated output controls for streaming apps like OBS or Xsplit.
Røde Connect can be downloaded for free at the company’s website.
