Very good microphone for voice recording

vis7mac, 07.04.2013
I'm really surprised by the quality of this microphone.

The processing is top, it is completely made of metal and feels very solid.
Unfortunately this is at the same time also a disadvantage: It is really very difficult.
I had the Rode Tripod as a tripod dazubestellt - but as soon as one accidentally hits the microphone, it kicks immediately, as it has a strong overweight.
This was also the (only!) Reason why I have sent back everything. On the desk it bothers and is so big that you can not just clean it up.

I have not tried this myself, but can only recommend the Rode PSA1 or similar studio arms.
Unfortunately, I simply have no room at my desk. So you should look at the purchase.

It is important, however, to ensure proper storage. The Rode PSM1, for example, can be used to secure the Rode Podcaster so that it can not fall out, even if it is aligned almost horizontally.

The sound quality is simply stunning, it simply has no Grundrauschen, only my (sometimes very loud) computer fan sometimes appeared in the recording. This is a question of setup.

The decor is very simple and uncomplicated. Simply connect, it already appears as an audio device and you can record with it.
The monitoring output is very awesome, you can actually hear without any delay and can also send other sounds like the recordings of the other podcast participants over the computer.
Unfortunately it was with me under OS X 10.8 so that the output level was not controllable, the volume control simply does not work. So you have to control the level on the softwareside.

I can recommend the Rode Podcaster to anyone who has enough space on the desk for it or even a studio or a room for recording.

Top for speech recognition!

Peter578, 01.11.2009
I've been using the Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition software for about 3 years because I have a lot to write and the computers have become so powerful that the software really works.

As a disadvantage I have always felt that I had to wear a headset, pushes and one sweats under it and the cable prevents one to change the body position on the office chair. So I made an attempt with the Rode PodCaster and the speech recognition quality has improved by at least 30%. I can finally free up and the computer writes what I dictate in the PodCaster. Purists may be an abusive use of a studiomicrophone, but the computer is dependent on good speech quality, otherwise it writes incorrectly.

In the meantime, I have already 3 PodCaster in 3 workstations in operation and am maximum satisfied with it. I recommend to anyone to buy a PodCaster in combination with the PSA-1 tripod for voice recognition, the convenience of dictation without a headset is simply worth the price, with the 10-year warranty from Rode it should also be long-lived parts. Also this text I dictated with the voice recognition into the computer.
