Firmware update for RODEcaster Pro
Version 1.2.0 expands the RØDECaster Pro’s multitrack capabilities, enabling multitrack recording direct to microSD™, as well as some other handy features.
Multitrack (called ‘multichannel’ on the RØDECaster) to microSD mode allows you to record not only a stereo mix of your podcast to the on-board microSD card, as was previously the case with the RØDECaster, but also each individual track. This means each track of your podcast can be edited in post-production without the need to be connected to a computer during recording.
A Note on SD Cards - Rode recommend using high-speed cards from major vendors to ensure trouble-free recording with your RØDEcaster Pro, especially when using the multitrack recording feature. Rode has a list of recommended microSD cards here.
Updated Companion App - There has also been an update to the RØDECaster Pro's companion app which offers more user-friendly handling of the multitrack files.
Pause Mode and Updated Colour-Coding on the Record Button - the RØDECaster Pro now offers the option to pause a recording at any time by pressing and holding the record button for two seconds – note that the unit starts pausing the moment you press the button, but you need to hold it down for two seconds to activate the pause. Tapping the button will resume the recording, whereas pressing and holding again will end the recording.
