Cardioid Condenser Microphone Package
The NT1 is a revolutionary new 1 inch diaphragm condenser microphone from RØDE. Although the body of the new NT1 closely resembles the NT1-A, the microphone has been completely redesigned from the ground up, with the only shared component being the mesh grille.
The NT1-KIT is supplied with the revolutionary new RØDE SMR shock mount. Featuring a unique double-Lyre suspension system, the SMR enhances the existing superior vibration cancellation of Rycote’s Lyre system by using a smaller inner Lyre to act as a tensioning element. This maintains each Lyre in the neutral position where it is most efficient at cancelling vibration. The SMR’s removable all-metal pop filter is as effective as it is visually striking, providing an integrated solution for plosive protection that is easily washable and designed to last as long as the shock mount and microphone.
RØDE’s design engineers approached the NT1 as a marriage of innovation and tradition, starting with the capsule which is a completely new design. Codenamed the HF6, it is the perfect example of RØDE’s fusion of artistic design approaches and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, and features a sound signature reminiscent of the famous microphones of old while at the same time exhibiting extremely low noise.
It has been developed with a focus on detailed midrange response, coupled with silky smooth high frequencies, and warm, round, bass reproduction to make the NT1 an absolute standout in its class.
In another world-first for RØDE, the transducer itself is suspended inside the microphone using Rycote’s industry-leading Lyre system, minimizing external vibrations at the capsule level. The capsule is then married to high-grade electronics that have been designed to provide the lowest noise level of any studio microphone available. The NT1 is an incredibly quiet microphone, measuring only 4.5dBA of self-noise.
Its body is machined from 6061 aluminium and then nickel plated for resistance against corrosion. Finally it is coated in a durable, military-grade ceramic layer, using advanced electrostatic application techniques developed by RØDE to ensure an extremely hard wearing finish that is resistant to scratches or marks. The NT1 is designed and made in Australia, and is covered by RØDE's industry-leading 10 year warranty.

This morning I sat in my car after recording the major track groups, with my laptop plugged into the aux input, so i can listen to real life audio system (what music get heard on most often) and also quickly compare to radio music. In 1/4 the time it usually takes to get satisfactory results i got the best mix i've ever done! Very straight forward. I'm shocked, thrilled, and rambling. When my wife listened to the mix she immediately said there's much more clarity and balance. This mic is GREAT. I'm gonna buy another when i save up the money so i can record in stereo..
PS. I recorded myself and my wife in one take with the NT1. We sing harmony, i play acoustic guitar, and she plays the cajon. It's a fun and surprisingly flexible and full sounding setup. We sounded better than i've ever heard recorded though the NT1.... smooth and transparent, yet the transients still had some punch. I've also got to say i'm super impressed with the iRig Pro. VERY satisfactory results.
The pop filter and mount look great, and feel sturdy. I recorded vocals with this mic through my Apogee Duet pre-amplifiers, and was very pleased with the results. The vocals are very present and full sounding, and comes out nice and clear in the mix on a Blues Rock track I recorded. Five stars because I think these mics are an exceptional value at their price point.
