Following the acquisition of SoundField in late 2016, RØDE are proud to announce a new product in the 'SoundField by RØDE' family, launching later in 2018: The NT-SF1 Ambisonic Microphone.

Just in time for NAB, Australian pro audio powerhouse, RØDE Microphones, is proud to announce its first broadcast-grade, 360-degree surround sound capture microphone and flagship product of a new brand in the RØDE family.

The first product for the SoundField By RØDE family is a marriage of SoundField’s pristine ambisonic recording technology, and RØDE’s commitment to audio excellence accessible by all creators. Completely designed and made in Australia at RØDE’s Sydney campus, the NT-SF1 is a triumph of innovation and manufacturing quality. Featuring four of RØDE’s all-new, ultra-quiet ½-inch TF45C capsules in tetrahedral array, the NT-SF1 produces natural, transparent four channel A-format recordings which can be transformed and manipulated in B-Format, courtesy of the SoundZone 2 plugin.
And the sound? The NT-SF1 offers startling spatial accuracy, coupled with a natural transparency.

“When The Freedman Group acquired SoundField in late-2016, the aim was to continue producing the premier 360-degree audio capture loved by the professionals who bring us cinema sound and 7.1 broadcast,” says Freedman Group CEO Damien Wilson. “And we are. But, as is the RØDE way, we have brought our manufacturing and design expertise to bear on this new family of microphones. The The SoundField By RØDE NT-SF1



 

SoundField By RØDE NT-SF1 is for creators for whom the ultra-high-end SoundField products are out of reach, and delivers results unmatched by all but the most expensive ambisonic microphones.”

Head of RØDE’s New Product Development and former Director of New Product at SoundField for 16 years, Pieter Schillebeeckx, says this is the most exciting development in the technology in decades. “Delivering this kind of professional-use technology at a sub-USD$1000 price point is a world first in the ambisonic world,” he says. “For budding VR creators, immersive filmmakers and videogame world builders, this changes when they make the dive into 360-degree-with-height audio capture. The SoundField By RØDE NT-SF1 will revolutionise the industry.”

Due to release soon in 2018, the SoundField By RØDE NT-SF1 will democratise one of the last bastions of high-end recording the way RØDE has always done: with precision, price and unbeatable after-sales service.
