RØDE enters new territory with the AI-1 audio interface

RØDE Microphones has released the AI-1, marking its first venture into the world of USB audio interfaces.

The interface is available on its own or as part of a new bundle, The Complete Studio Kit.

Aimed at home recording, the AI-1 sports a Neutrik combo jack input and discrete Class-A preamp, allowing users to connect a microphone, guitar or line-level instrument, like a synthesiser.

The AI-1 offers zero-latency playback by enabling a direct monitoring feature and playback via headphones/speakers. It features 48V Phantom Power and is class compliant, eliminating the need to install drivers.

Available as part of The Complete Studio Kit, the AI-1 comes with RØDE’s NT1 large diaphragm condenser microphone, SMR shock mount with popshield, 20 foot XLR and USB C/A cables. Also, for a limited time, every sale of the AI-1 comes with a free version of Ableton Live Lite.
