The Broadcaster Condenser Microphone from RODE is a large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone that features a true full-range response especially suited for voice-over use.
It has an emphasized proximity effect and features an internal pop filter, designed to minimize plosive sounds that can overload the microphone capsule and distort the audio output. In addition to the native 20 Hz-20 kHz response, a selectable high-pass filter at 75 Hz is available to prevent low-end noise, such as air conditioners and traffic, from being recorded.
The Broadcaster features an '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.
