Why buy the Rode Procaster?

The perfect broadcaster’s mic, built specifically to get the best sound out of voice, the Procaster is every podcast host’s dream. With a level of performance that exceeds its mid-range price, you’ll be well-equipped to take your show to the next level with the Procaster. Here are our three reasons to buy:
  • Simplicity — For hosts who don’t have a degree in sound engineering, the Procaster is wonderfully simple. With no whizz-bang buttons or alternative functions on its casing, the mic will keep you focussed only on what you do best: podcasting.
  • Built for broadcasting — While some mics attempt to be as versatile as possible, the beauty of the Procaster is that it was built specifically for broadcasting, with a frequency response tailored for voice, which makes it the ideal podcaster’s mic.
  • The Rode guarantee — Rode is one of the companies we bang on about most at WhatPods, for its reputation as a world-leading manufacturer of recording equipment. So long as you register your purchase, all Rode mics come with a very generous 10-year warranty, which just proves how durable they know their mics to be.

The other day I picked up my first Rode Procaster microphone and was literally blown away. I’d highly encourage you, especially if you have a fuller and deeper voice, to take a look at the Rode Procaster microphone. I am totally sold on it, and paired with their board, you have a plug-and-play high-end sound that will rival any radio production studio anywhere. And that’s saying a lot!
