RØDE Microphones has released its first Audio Interface – the AI-1. Damien Wilson, CEO of RØDE Microphones told us, "The AI-1 offers pro-studio quality at a home studio price point. It's simply the best in its class – and it's also incredibly easy to use, thanks to thoughtful design and Australian Made quality. The perfect companion to any RØDE microphone."
Here's more details in RØDE's own words...
The AI-1 USB Audio Interface adds studio-quality input and output capabilities to your computer, making home recording easier than it has ever been. With its high quality NeutrikTM combo jack input and discrete Class-A preamp, you'll be able to connect either a microphone, guitar or a line level instrument, such as a synthesizer.
Available as part of The Complete Studio Kit, the AI-1 comes with RØDE's peerless NT1 large diaphragm condenser microphone, SMR shock mount with popshield, 20 foot XLR and USB C/A cables – home recording is as easy as opening the box.
The AI-1 allows zero-latency playback by enabling the direct monitoring feature and playback via headphones/speakers with the high quality discrete headphone amplifier. To ensure the AI-1 is truly versatile it features 48V Phantom Power and is class compliant – so there is no need to install any drivers.
For a limited time only, every sale of the AI-1 comes with a free version of Ableton Live Lite.
