TheRode NT1 5th Gen is a revolutionary studio condenser microphone that combines the classic sound of the iconic RØDE NT1 with new, innovative technology. With over six million units sold, the NT1 is the world's most popular studio microphone and boasts a heritage that few other microphones can match. It has undergone many transformations since its launch over 30 years ago, including as the legendary NT1-A and the innovative fourth-generation NT1, both of which are used by countless creatives today.

TheRode NT1 5th Gen is the most significant evolution to date, building on the iconic sound quality and world-class performance that made the previous generations so successful, while introducing cutting-edge technology, including RØDE's groundbreaking patent-pending Dual Connect output, offering both XLR and USB connectors, the world's first 'non-overdrive' 32-bit floating point digital output, advanced digital signal processing and much more. Here is the ultimate studio microphone, a perfect blend of tradition and innovation.

  • Large-diaphragm HF6 (1″) gold-sputtered cartridge, precisely designed to sub-micron tolerances
  • Flat frequency response, high efficiency and high SPL handling for incredible performance in a wide range of studio applications
  • Extremely low noise (4 dBA) - the world's quietest studio condenser microphone
  • Patented Dual Connect output with XLR and USB-C connection for use with audio interfaces, mixers and consoles or direct plug-and-play recording on a computer
  • World's first digital output with 32-bit, floating-point resolution
  • Ultra-high-resolution analogue-to-digital processing (up to 192 kHz)
  • Built-in APHEX® DSP for advanced audio processing, including compressor, noise gate, two-stage high-pass filter and legendary Aural Exciter™ and Big Bottom™ effects

  • Available in black or silver with a durable aluminium body and high quality finish - extremely resistant to scuffs and scratches
  • Designed and manufactured in RØDE's precision manufacturing facilities in Sydney, Australia
Legacy of the world's most popular studio microphone

Introduced in 1991, the NT1 was RØDE's debut microphone - the first in a long line of products that have changed the way creatives in every field record sound. Released at a time when new advances in audio technology were democratising studio work and making recording more accessible than ever before, it was an instant success and quickly became a proven microphone for a new generation of self-recording musicians and studio professionals alike. For the past three decades it has remained the world's best-selling studio condenser microphone, loved for its warm, classic sound signature and incredible versatility.

"The NT1 is not only our flagship microphone, it's an icon for today's creative generation," says RØDE CEO Damien Wilson. "Countless musicians, podcasters, streamers, broadcasters and content creators consider it their favourite microphone and for good reason - it sounds amazing, is incredibly versatile and is built like a tank - a true studio workhorse. For the new generation, we wanted to retain all of these features, while introducing innovations never before seen in a microphone of this type. The NT1 5th Gen bears little resemblance to any studio microphone on the market today, but it has not lost its charm and will certainly continue to inspire creatives for decades to come."

TheRode NT1 5th Gen is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone that delivers exceptional performance across a wide range of studio applications. It features RØDE's incredible HF6 cartridge - first introduced in the fourth generation NT1 - which delivers sparkling treble, detailed midrange and deep bass and makes any sound source shine. It has a compact cardioid directional response, flat frequency response and high efficiency for incredible versatility - ideal for recording everything from vocals and speech to acoustic and electric guitar, drums and percussion, piano and more.

The improved circuitry delivers an astonishingly low inherent noise of 4 dBA, making it the world's quietest studio condenser microphone, and it supports high SPL levels for maximum versatility in the studio. These features alone make the NT1 5th Gen a world-class microphone, but that's only half the story.

Revolutionary connectivity

For more than 50 years, the XLR connector has remained virtually unchanged - until now. The NT1 5th Gen features RØDE's groundbreaking, patent-pending Dual Connect output, which offers both XLR and USB connectivity in a single housing. This allows users to connect the microphone to an audio interface, mixer, console or other audio equipment via XLR for traditional analogue operation, or directly to a computer via USB for plug-and-play recording.

When using the analogue output, the NT1 5th Gen delivers exactly the same rich, warm sound and best-in-class performance for which the NT1 is so acclaimed. When using the digital output, these sonic qualities are retained - with the added convenience, power and versatility of a direct USB connection. The NT1 5th Gen has a professional-grade audio interface built into the microphone. It is superbly optimised to maintain pristine audio fidelity, and offers a number of highly innovative features to further enhance its sound, making capturing studio-quality audio easier than ever before.

A microphone that can't be overdriven

TheRODE NT1 5th Gen is the world's first microphone to feature 32-bit floating point digital output. This revolutionary audio format captures the full dynamic range of the microphone, while allowing users recording in a DAW to adjust the sound to the optimum level after recording. This means that users can record anything from a whisper to a scream without worrying about adjusting the gain in advance and with no chance of overdriving the signal.

"The NT1 5th Gen redefines the meaning of plug-and-play," says Damien Wilson. "Since the dawn of audio recording, producers have focused on setting the gain knob to capture a clean sound - this has always been the most important process when working on a recording. The NT1 5th Gen completely changes this. When recording in 32-bit floating point, users can literally plug their microphone into their computer and start recording immediately without the risk of their sound being ruined by overdrive or distortion."

Classic sound at its finest

The NT1 5th Gen digital output also features an ultra-low noise, high gain RØDE Revolution Preamp™ and ultra-high resolution (up to 192 kHz) analogue-to-digital conversion for the ultimate in audio clarity. The powerful built-in APHEX® DSP allows users to apply advanced audio processing to their recordings, including a compressor, noise gate, two-stage high-pass filter and the legendary Aural Exciter™ and Big Bottom™ effects.

Through RØDE's free-added apps, RØDE Central and RØDE Connect, two different processing modes are available: an intuitive VoxLab™ editor with simple Depth, Sparkle and Punch adjustments, making it extremely easy to set up the perfect sound, or an advanced editor that offers detailed settings of every parameter for precise processing. Users can connect up to eight NT1 5th Gen microphones to a single computer for multi-track recording, and even on Windows operating systems, using RØDE's special ASIO driver. Much more than just a studio condenser microphone, this is a versatile solution for digital recording.
