Description and specs

RODE's Iconic Original Studio Microphone is Reborn

The NT1 5th Generation is the latest evolution of the renowned NT1. First introduced in 1991, the NT1 is the world's most popular studio microphone, revered for its warm, classic sound and incredible versatility. The NT1 5th Generation takes the much-loved core of the NT1 and introduces state-of-the-art features while preserving the legendary qualities that made the original the go-to microphone for countless creators. A perfect harmony of tradition and innovation.

Game-changing Connectivity

Featuring RODE's groundbreaking, patent-pending Dual Connect output, the NT1 5th Generation can either be connected to an audio interface/mixer via XLR or directly to a computer via USB for studio-grade, plug-and-play recording. Unprecedented flexibility for any studio setup.

Classic Sound on the Cutting-edge

The NT1 5th Generation delivers the same warm, silky character, extremely low noise, and high SPL handling capability that stood out in the original, now with improved circuitry for even lower self-noise - an astonishingly low 4dBA, making it the world's quietest studio condenser microphone. When using the XLR output, it delivers the rich, classic studio condenser sound you know and love from the NT1. When using the digital output, you get this same sound plus a range of cutting-edge features to further enhance your audio for recording pro studio sound directly into your computer.

The Digital Studio of the Future

The NT1 5th Generation features a pro-grade audio interface built straight into the microphone, which is perfectly optimised to preserve its pristine audio fidelity and also offers a range of highly innovative features for improved sound, including the ultra-low-noise, high-gain Revolution Preamp(TM), high-resolution (192kHz) A/D conversion and advanced digital signal processing. This is so much more than just a studio condenser microphone, it's an all-in-one digital recording solution.

The "Unclippable" Microphone

The NT1 5th Generation features a world-first 32-bit float digital output - a revolutionary recording format that allows you to record everything from a whisper to a scream, the softest guitar to the loudest drummer without having to worry about setting your gain - simply adjust your audio after recording and all the dynamics of your performance will be maintained, with zero risk of clipping or distortion. Gamechanging.

Versatility Like No Other

With its smooth frequency response, extremely low noise, high SPL handling, flexible connectivity options and powerful digital capabilities, the NT1 5th Generation offers versatility like no other studio mic. It excels in any recording application, from vocals and speech to guitars, drums to piano, and can fit into any workflow, from a solo bedroom recording setup to professional studio.

Craft Your Sound

Craft your sound with advanced APHEX(R) audio processing, driven by the NT1 5th Generation's powerful on-board DSP. Add compression, a high-pass filter, noise gate, and the legendary APHEX(R) Aural Exciter(TM) and Big Bottom(TM) to your audio with ease using the free RODE Connect and RODE Central companion apps. Dial in the perfect sound with the touch of a button using the intuitive VoxLab(TM) editor or fine-tune each processor using the advanced editor.

Premium Components, Built to Last

Made from premium components, the NT1 5th Generation is built to the highest standard in RODE's state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Sydney, Australia. The HF6 capsule is precision manufactured to sub-micron tolerances to ensure the utmost consistency in tonality and frequency response and is internally shock-mounted for minimising external vibrations. The body is machined from rugged aluminium and is available in black or silver, with high-grade finishes that are extremely resistant to scuffs and scratches, ensuring the NT1 5th Generation is ready to take on the rigours of recording day in, day out.

Everything You Need to Start Recording

The NT1 5th Generation comes with everything you need to start recording in the box, including XLR and USB cables, and a studio-grade shock mount and pop filter for minimising unwanted artifacts in your recording caused by plosives, knocks and bumps.
