The perfect first stepinto home recording
RØDE’s AI-1 Audio Interface is stacked with incredible technology to ensure recording on your computer is easy, versatile and sounds superb. The Complete Studio Kit comes with the AI-1, RØDE’s peerless NT1 large diaphragm condenser microphone, a shock mount and all cables. Let’s get started.
With the RODE NT1 microphone/Ai-1 USB audio interface bundle, you’re equipped to capture pristine, low-noise vocals and instrument audio anywhere you go. The RODE NT1 microphone has a present, full-bodied sound that takes vocals and acoustic instruments to the front of a mix without much sweetening. Sporting a mere 4.5dB of self-noise, the NT1 is far and away one of the quietest mics in its class. Patented Lyre capsule suspension technology from Rycote isolates the NT1 from even the natural harmonic resonance of its aluminum body. This mic is a perfect mate for the included RODE Ai-1 interface, which touts a lightning-fast USB-C connection and USB bus power for pure, portable audio on the go. Rounding out the package are the RODE SRM combination shockmount-pop shield, which reduces handling noise and “p” pops as you record, as well as a rugged mic cable.
Live 9 Lite is a customized version of the music making software Ableton Live.
As for inputs: the AI-1’s got both kinds…
RODE’s first-ever audio interface, the Ai-1, is the perfect mate for the NT1. The compact design and streamlined control set, along with its USB bus powering and +48V phantom power, are all you need to make great recordings in the studio or on the road. Balanced 1/4″ outputs and a high-quality headphone amp provide accurate mixing and monitoring.
The AI-1’s single input is a NeutrikTM Combo Jack, which takes both a 3-pole XLR (common to most microphones) and a quarter-inch jack common to most electric instruments like guitar, bass et al. Layering tracks is as easy as plug in, set level and go.
No cords barred (and other puns)
The Complete Studio Kit comes with the RØDE NT1 studio condenser microphone, a shock mount, pop-shield, RØDE XLR cable and USB-C/A cables to transfer data from your AI-1 to your computer, and power – including 48V phantom power to your AI-1.
Superior Headphone Amplifier onboard
Not only does the AI-1 deliver crystal clear audio to your computer software, but headphones have never sounded sweeter thanks to the discrete studio-quality headphone output and level control.
NT1 microphone is quiet, crisp, and clean
The RODE NT1 cardioid condenser microphone is just as at home in front of a delicate vocalist as it is in front of a raucous guitar cabinet. Its ultra-low self-noise means you can give your music and voice work the dynamics they deserve. The NT1 can handle 137dB SPL, so you can be confident that even in front of a loud amp, this mic won’t overload. By providing ultra-quiet operation and versatility to handle a wide variety of signals, the NT1 is an affordable studio solution!
Includes RODE SRM shockmount and XLR cable
RODE wasn’t content to supply the NT1 with any ordinary shock mount. That’s why it designed the SRM combination shockmount and pop shield. The SRM’s entire frame is made from an engineering-grade low-mass polymer, which provides stability without adding weight. This makes the NT1 incredibly easy to use with any microphone stand in your studio. A dual Lyre suspension system offers superior resistance to vibration, with none of the drawbacks of conventional rubber-band shockmounts. The SRM’s clamp is robust and easy to operate, while he medical-grade stainless steel pop filter offers excellent plosive protection. Together with an included XLR cable, the RODE NT1/Ai-1 bundle from Sweetwater is all you need to start enjoying great recordings at home or on the go.
