Rode AI-Micro Ultra Compact Dual Channel Interface

RØDE is proud to release the AI-Micro, a new ultra-compact dual-channel interface for recording high-quality audio to a mobile device or computer with absolute ease. Featuring two auto-sensing inputs for connecting virtually any microphone with a 3.5mm output, a high-power headphone output for crystal-clear, zero-latency audio monitoring and playback, and a universal USB output for use with both iOS and Android devices, it’s the perfect portable recording solution for mobile journalists and content creators. The AI-Micro also offers a seamless solution for connecting a 3.5mm microphone to a computer, making it ideal for streamers, podcasters and professionals, and can be used with the entire suite of RØDE apps for supercharged recording on any device.

 The AI-Micro is compatible with computers as well as mobile devices, making it ideal for video calls and business presentations.

KEY FEATURES OF THE AI-MICRO:

  • Ultra-compact dual-channel interface for recording high-quality audio on computers and mobile devices  
  • Compatible with virtually any microphone with a 3.5mm output, including RØDE VideoMics, lavaliers, wireless systems, and stereo microphones
  • Auto-sensing inputs for connecting TRS or TRRS microphones
  • High-power headphone output for crystal-clear, zero-latency audio monitoring and playback 
  • Connects seamlessly to computers, smartphones and tablets via its universal USB output (USB-A, USB-C and Lightning cables supplied) 
  • Compatible with the entire RØDE app suite for expanded features and functionality, on-the-go configuration, and broadcast-quality recording on any device 
  • Designed and made in RØDE’s state-of-the-art facilities in Sydney, Australia

“With the AI-Micro, we set out to create the perfect solution for recording high-quality audio with a smartphone, tablet or computer using a 3.5mm microphone,” says RØDE CEO Damien Wilson. “The intention was to take the core design of our hugely popular SC6-L interface for iPhone and iPad and make it compatible with more devices and adaptable to a wider range of recording applications. By adding a universal USB output, enhanced microphone inputs, and compatibility with RØDE’s powerful app suite, we have absolutely achieved that. The AI-Micro is a must-have for everyone from content creators in need of an ultra-portable recording solution to professionals looking for an easy way to capture great sound while working from home.”

INCREDIBLE AUDIO, ANYWHERE

The AI-Micro features two microphone inputs with high-quality preamps and can record high-resolution 24-bit/48kHz audio, allowing users to capture stellar sound on any device. These are auto-sensing inputs that detect whether a TRS or TRRS microphone is connected and automatically adapt to accommodate – no adaptors needed. Input 1 can also be configured as a single stereo TRS input.

This means that virtually any microphone with a 3.5mm output can be connected to the AI-Micro, including RØDE VideoMics, lavaliers, wireless systems like the Wireless GO, and stereo microphones like the Stereo VideoMic Pro. It also features a high-power headphone output for crystal-clear, zero-latency audio monitoring and playback. Weighing less than 20 grams, the AI-Micro is extremely compact and lightweight – a pocket-sized solution for recording incredible audio anywhere.

UNIVERSAL COMPATIBILITY

The AI-Micro is designed to connect seamlessly to smartphones, tablets and computers via its universal USB output. It is plug-and-play compatible with Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices, and comes with high-quality USB-A, USB-C and Lightning cables, making it quick and easy to get recording in no time.

The AI-Micro and RØDE Reporter app – perfect for two-person interviews and mobile podcasting.

SUPERCHARGED SOUND WITH THE RØDE APP SUITE

The AI-Micro can be used with the entire RØDE app suite – including RØDE Connect, RØDE Central and RØDE Reporter – for accessing expanded features and functionality, on-the-go configuration, and broadcast-quality recording on any device.

The interface is fully compatible with RØDE Connect, RØDE’s free podcasting and streaming software for Mac and Windows. This enables up to four microphones to be connected to a computer, with level controls, solo and mute buttons, and studio-quality audio processing accessible at the click of a button. This includes a compressor, noise gate, and legendary APHEX Aural Exciter and Big Bottom effects​. Using the AI-Micro with RØDE Connect allows anyone to record professional-quality podcasts or livestreams with a 3.5mm microphone.

RØDE Central allows users to configure their AI-Micro on a computer or mobile device, including adjusting the input gain and headphone output level, switching between ‘Merged’, ‘Split’ and ‘Stereo’ channel mode, and engaging a high-pass filter. The RØDE Reporter mobile app also allows complete device configuration, as well as broadcast-quality recording in the field.

The AI-Micro is the latest innovation from RØDE aimed at helping creators and professionals take their sound to the next level. With powerful features in an ultra-compact and easy-to-use package, it’s the perfect portable recording solution.

Rode at Musos Corner

Musos Corner is proud to be an authorised retailer for Rode microphones.

A true Australian business success story, Rode Microphones grew from humble beginnings to become one of the most popular audio brands on the market.

Rode went from importing twenty microphones from Shanghai and modifying them in Sydney to producing the ever popular Rode NT1, titled after the nicknamed the “Rodent” because customers went after them like a rat up a drainpipe.

Rode Microphones moved more of its operations to Australia to ensure quality control and keep their manufacturing knowledge in-house.

The emergence of DIY filmmaking via the rise of DSLR video created a market for audio systems for which Rode soon became a market leader around the world. 

Today Rode provides a comprehensive range of audio solutions including audio for video, sound, mobile phones, tablets and home recording with a range of accessories to match.

Musos Corner highly recommends Rode products and if we don’t already have your dream Rode product in stock or listed online, contact us at Musos Corner today.

If this is the case we will call or email you and let you know if your order cannot be fulfilled, and what your options are as soon as possible. We have multiple warehouses around the country so the "in stock" and "out of stock" is an indication of if the item is able to be shipped from one of them, our store, or one of our distributors. Most of the time there is no difference in turn around depending where it is shipped from but if there are any delays we will contact you immediately. We do also ask if you plan on picking up an item, please contact us so we make sure it is in our store ready for you.

Many products we stock have free shipping to certain locations.
Please put in your address into the freight calculator and if there is no delivery charge your order may be eligible for free delivery. General exceptions include anything over 20kg or 105cm and areas as deemed remote by our delivery partners, including all of NT & WA.
Some Items on ZipMoney, ZipPay, or Studio19 Finance may not be eligable for free delivery. We will contact you if this is the case.
Some large/heavy items (over 20kg) , or items deemed not able to be delivered by our standard courier, Australia Post, may have an extra shipping charge.

Free Postage Details
Some items such as certain pedals and stomp boxes, accessories and effects may have free postage. This will go via the cheapest method. Courier/Express/Insurance/Registered Post would be extra. Please contact us for more information or check the "Free Freight" tab at the top of our website.

Express Post
Sometimes we can Express Post/Courier your items if necessary but additional charges may apply. Orders generally leave at 2:00pm daily so if you need an item ASAP, make sure it is ordered by 1pm (please call 1300 687 672) to ensure there is stock of the item and to get an estimated time of arrival. Express post is to capital / major cities only (for next day service). This service is for small items under 3KG only!

How can I track my order?
Check your email and you will have been sent a tracking number, input the number into either Fastway CouriersStartrack or Australia Post's Track & Trace engine. If you have any problems, please call us and we will call the couriers on your behalf.

Do you take international orders?
Sorry, we do not take international orders, we only sell and ship around Mainland Australia & Tasmania. For remote & Island locations please contact us.

How much is shipping?
To work out a shipping cost, please go through the cart and our system will work out a freight price to your area.
If you think there may be an error, or want to clarify the price, you are welcome to contact us and we will work out the best shipping price for you.
There may be some exceptions for heavy or large items (over 25kg), remote locations or some regional areas. We will contact you if this problem arises prior to shipping the goods.

Do you offer freight insurance?
We certainly do, and highly recommend it as Australia is a big country. Insurance / Shipping protection is available and is only 1.5% of the value of the goods.

Can I pick my goods up in store?    
Of course! Unlike some stores, we do not charge for you to pick up in store. We are open 7 days for your convenience, but please give us a date and time of pick up so we can make sure your goods are ready. Orders that are left for over 1 week and not picked up will be returned to stock, unless other arrangements have been made. Valid ID will be required for picking up goods that have been paid for online or over the phone.

What if I am not home for the delivery?
IF you are not home, the driver will leave a card in your mail box so you can pick-up from the local depot/post office or arrange a re-delivery. 
We have found it to be much quicker & easier to have all items sent to a business address where someone will be present.

Can I ask for the courier to leave the goods at my door?
Whilst it Is possible, we highly recommend that you do not do it. All freight warranty & insurance will be void. Only do so at your own risk, if someone steals it, Musos Corner & The freight company will not be held accountable.
If you will not be able to take the delivery, it might be worth asking a friend or neighbour to take delivery of it for you.

What if it appears my goods have been freight damaged?
Please check all items before signing for them! This is very important. Do not sign for an item that appears damaged, to sign for them means "Signed for in good working order" and subsequently is out of the couriers hands, and voids insurance. If this was not possible, there can be a 24 Hour window to try and claim insurance, please contact us & the courier immediately. This only applies to orders that have paid for Insurance & are sent via courier. 

Can the courier or delivery person call me prior to delivery?
Unfortunately as often as we request this, we get denied as many times. No courier or Australia post worker will call you prior to delivery despite any bribes we may try and offer.
If you select courier we will send you a tracking number which you can use to find out an estimated time of arrival for your goods, or alternatively have it sent to a business address.

Can I have my goods delivered on the weekend or after hours?
Unfortunately this is not possible at the current point in time, however you are welcome to pickup in store late night Thursday or on weekends from our Newcastle store. Please contact us to set a pickup time.

Send to a PO BOX?
We cannot ship guitars to a PO BOX under any circumstances. Australia Post will not accept deliveries over 105cm LCM, we cannot change their policy.

Products

Do i need to set up my product?
All guitars come fully set up ready to play (after a quick tuning). Banjos will need to be set up after delivery as they cannot be shipped set up unless they are bought with a case. Some products like piano stands require some basic assembly as they are flat packed for shipping. Digitial pianos and clavinovas may require some simple assembly.

Are all products brand new?
Yes! Everything we sell, unless clearly specified, is considered brand new with full warranty. Some items, especially guitars will have been taken out of their boxes for inspection, demonstration or quality assurance. This in no way effects your warranty supplied to you by Musos Corner or Australian consumer law.

Are the items individually photographed?
All images are for illustration purposes unless otherwise specified. While we wish we could take photos of every exact item, this is not always possible and we use the pictures supplied by either the a) Australian Supplier or b) Manufacturer. 
If you require a specialty photo of your instrument prior to purchase, just contact us to see if this is available.

Does my item come with Australian warranty
All items we sell come with Australian Warranty, please read our returns policy fo rmore information. Some manufactuers provide aditional warranty over the 12 months once registering the product with them.
