USB Microphone Kit

This guide walks through how to connect and configure the USB microphones.



The USB Microphone kit is equipped with two Rode NT-USB mini microphones that have a cardioid polar pattern helping to focus audio that is spoken directly into the mic.  A built in windscreen helps to filter out plosives while recording.
