Just about everybody in the photo and video industry knows who Rode is. They make the microphones that many of us use in various circumstances. They’re also quite popular for streamers and podcasters, too. But now, Rode’s separating out the podcasting and live streaming side of things to a whole new brand, Rode X.
They’ve launched the new Rode X brand with three new products. There’s the XDM-100 dynamic USB microphone, the XCM-50 condenser USB microphone and the Unify virtual mixer application. Both microphones are designed specifically for gaming and streaming. As such, they’re all-in-one self-contained systems that connect directly to your computer.
