Australian microphone makers Rode have been in the business for literally decades – the company was first founded in 1967. And yet, despite the rise of gaming and streaming in particular, the firm has never really targeted gaming or the legions of content creators interested in entry level or prosumer audio gear.
It’s not like Rode haven’t had plenty of mics. But with the NT-USB Mini, the company has an affordable USB offering targeting gamers. It’s excellent, like most Rode gear, but there’s one significant catch.
