The AI-Micro is a dual-channel interface from Røde for recording high-quality audio to a mobile device or computer.

Røde AI-MicroFeaturing two auto-sensing inputs for connecting virtually any microphone with a 3.5mm output, a high-power headphone output for zero-latency audio monitoring and playback, and a universal USB output for use with both iOS and Android devices, it is aimed at mobile journalists and content creators, as well as providing a 3.5mm microphone interface to a computer for streamers, podcasters and professionals.

The AI-Micro features two microphone inputs with high-quality preamps and can record high-resolution 48kHz, 24-bit audio. These are auto-sensing inputs that detect whether a TRS or TRRS microphone is connected and automatically adapt to accommodate. Input 1 can also be configured as a single stereo TRS input. Any microphone with a 3.5mm output can be connected to the AI-Micro, including Røde VideoMics, lavaliers, wireless systems like the Wireless Go and Stereo VideoMic Pro.

The interface is designed to connect to smartphones, tablets and computers via its universal USB output. It is plug-and-play compatible with Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices, and comes with high-quality USB-A, USB-C and Lightning cables.

The AI-Micro can be used with the entire Røde app suite, including Røde Connect, Røde Central and Røde Reporter – for accessing expanded features and functionality, on-the-go configuration, and broadcast-quality recording on any device.

The interface is fully compatible with Røde Connect, Røde’s free podcasting and streaming software for Mac and Windows. This enables up to four microphones to be connected to a computer, with level controls, solo and mute buttons, and studio-quality audio processing. This includes a compressor, noise gate, Ahex Aural Exciter and Big Bottom effects. Using the AI-Micro with Røde Connect allows anyone to record professional-quality podcasts or livestreams with a 3.5mm microphone.

Røde Central allows users to configure their AI-Micro on a computer or mobile device, including adjusting the input gain and headphone output level, switching between Merged, Split and Stereo channel modes, and engaging a high-pass filter. The Røde Reporter mobile app also allows complete device configuration, as well as broadcast-quality recording in the field.
