What is it?A dynamic, end-address USB microphone combining broadcast quality with the simplicity of USB connectivity. DetailsCapable of 18-bit, 8kHz - 48kHz operation, the Podcaster performs analogue to digital conversion internally in order to bypass the low-quality processing offered by most computers. A headphone output on the microphone body provides zero latency monitoring, allowing the user to hear exactly what is being recorded, free of delay or echo. The Podcaster fully compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OS X platforms, as well as several Linux distributions. The microphone is bus powered and includes a status LED to indicate operation. The quoted frequency response of the Podcaster is 40Hz – 14kHz at a sensitivity of -51dB @ 1V/Pa (+/- 2dB @ 1kHz). Maximum SPL is 115dB (@1kHz; 1% THD). Said to be ideal for podcasting, vodcasting, YouTube applications and corporate videos, the Podcaster can also be used as an iPad microphone in conjunction with the iPad Camera Connection Kit and a powered USB hub. Measuring 21.5cm (H) x 56cm (W) x 52cm (D), it incorporates an internal pop filter to minimise plosives sounds and includes an RM2 microphone ring mount. It is available with an optional PSM1 shock mount and PSA1 boom arm.
