From RØDE:
 
RØDE is proud to announce the iXY, a stereo microphone for iPhone and iPad with 30-pin connector that allows high quality recording at sampling rates up to 24-bit/96kHz, the only microphone on the market to do so
 

 
Appearing at the International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas for the first time, the company has unveiled the innovative device to an expected audience of over 150,000 visitors.
 
At the heart of the iXY is a matched pair of ½” cardioid condenser capsules, fixed in a perfect 90 degree ‘near-coincident’ alignment resulting in immersive and true-to-life stereo recordings, captured in incredibly high detail. The iXY uses its own high-fidelity analogue to digital conversion ensuring all recordings are rich, smooth and accurate.
 
The iXY’s small form factor and incredibly detailed performance makes it the perfect microphone for recording live music, meetings, lectures, reporting, dictation and sound design, and also is ideal for use on-camera as a dual-system recorder for DSLR.
 
A foam windshield is provided for outdoor recordings, as well as a rugged zip pocket to ensure the mic is always around when you need it.
 
“I’m more excited about iXY than any other product in RØDE’s twenty year history,” commented Peter Freedman, RØDE’s Founder and President. “The audio quality of the iXY is breathtaking and reallyaffirms RØDE’s commitment to providing the very best audio products available at a price that’s accessible to the general public.”
 
Released in conjunction with the iXY is RØDE Rec, an app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch designed to be the ultimate companion to RØDE’s new microphone. When used together the iXY and RØDE Rec transform an iOS device into a fully featured field recorder.
 
RØDE Rec allows for complete control of the iXY’s continuously adjustable input levels for recording in loud and quiet environments, as well as the high pass filter to cut out low frequency rumbling such as air conditioning or outdoor traffic noises.
 
The RØDE Rec App is available for purchase from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore. The app provides a full suite of features including multiple sampling rates up to 96kHz, equalization effects (compressor/expander, high-pass filter, low pass filter, parametric EQ), non-linear editing, geo and photo tagging, and one-touch publishing to SoundCloud, Dropbox, email, FTP and iTunes.
 
RØDE has also announced a feature-limited free version of the app, simply titled RØDE Rec LE.
 
The RØDE iXY is shipping this month. Visit ixymic.com for more information.

From RØDE:
 
RØDE Microphones is proud to announce a new addition to its line of broadcast and AV products, the Reporter.
 
Designed for handheld interview and presentation applications, the Reporter features an omnidirectional dynamic capsule that is designed to allow the user freedom of use, without the technique related issues typical of directional end-address microphones.
 
Additionally its frequency response has been specially tailored for voice reproduction, to maximise intelligibility and deliver crisp, clear results in almost any condition.
 
The microphone features a durable die-cast aluminium alloy body coated in a discrete matte black anti-glare finish. An innovative multi-layer mesh basket protects the microphone from environmental noise without the need for a bulky and distracting foam wind shield. It is supplied with a removable microphone ‘flag’ that can accommodate high-visibility branding.
 
The Reporter is covered by RØDE’s industry-leading support guarantee, with a twelve month warranty ‘out of the box’ that is easily increased to ten years free of charge, following online registration of the microphone at rodemic.com.
 
For more information on the RØDE Reporter, visit the Reporter product page.

From RØde Microphones:
 
Step Inside the New RØDE Soundbooth for Broadcast Microphones
 
RØDE Microphones has announced the release of a new edition of their ground-breaking Soundbooth online application, extending the functionality so that users can hear and compare the complete range of RØDE broadcast and videomicrophones.
 
Released almost a year ago, the original Soundbooth was the very first online application that allowed users to listen to and compare actual real-world microphones, as they would perform in everyday use.
 
Featuring tracks recorded by renowned producer and engineer John Merchant and focusing on the recording of vocals and musical instruments in a studio environment, the application has been used over one hundred thousand times and has played more than half a million tracks.
 
This new edition of Soundbooth offers twenty three different RØDE microphones, including the NTG8, NTG3, NTG2, NTG1, VideoMic, Stereo VideoMic, VideoMic Pro, Stereo VideoMic Pro, NT4, NT5,Broadcaster, Procaster, Podcaster, Lavalier, PinMic, HS1, K2, NT1-A, M1 and M3.
 
Additionally the application includes three forthcoming microphones for broadcast and field recording that RØDE will announce during the remainder of 2012, and make available for use in the RØDE Soundbooth.
 
The application is split into five different scenarios or applications that broadcast sound engineers would typically encounter, namely indoor and outdoor dialogue, voice over, acoustic music performance and also live reinforced music.
 
Each audio scenario offers a wide range of microphones that users can switch between in real-time, to hear exactly how each one differs acoustically.
 
“We are incredibly proud of the Soundbooth platform and to extend its application to our broadcast and video range is something we are very excited about.” commented Damien Wilson, RØDE’s Global Sales & Marketing Director.
“Here at RØDE we are constantly working on ways to educate our customers on the best mic for their application and with this new broadcast version of Soundbooth that just got a whole lot easier”.
 
A native iPad version of Soundbooth broadcast is currently in development and slated for release in late 2012.
 
Visit rodemic.com/soundbooth now to use RØDE Soundbooth for either broadcast or music.

"Building on the success of the VideoMic Pro, which launched in early 2011 and quickly became the defacto standard for DSLR on-camera audio, and RØDE’s original Stereo VideoMic, the new Stereo VideoMic Pro provides a high quality stereo option for videographers, and is ideal for recording music, and the atmospheric ambience essential in building a realistic audio scene."
 
Also new is the Rode VideoMic HD - a condenser shotgun microphone with an integrated digital recorder (microSDHC). Learn more about the Rode VideoMic HD here.
