RØDE has announced two world-first updates for the Wireless GO II, making it even more powerful and easy to use. The Wireless GO II can now be set up on the go with iOS and Android devices via the new RØDE Central Mobile app – the first time ever that a compact wireless microphone has been made fully configurable with a mobile app, giving users complete control of their device anywhere.
The Wireless GO II can also be used with RØDE Connect, making it the only microphone of its kind to be fully integrated with podcasting or streaming software, allowing users to unlock their creativity in new and exciting ways. Both RØDE Central Mobile and RØDE Connect are available to download for free.
RØDE Central is the Wireless GO II’s handy companion app, which allows users to configure the microphone, unlock advanced features, and access the latest firmware updates.
Initially released as a desktop app, RØDE Central is now available on iOS and Android devices for adjusting settings on the fly, giving users more flexibility when recording in the field. This includes switching between ‘Merged’ and ‘Split’ recording mode, adjusting the gain settings, unlocking the fine gain control, activating the safety channel, and more.
RØDE Central Mobile is available to download for free via the RØDE Central page or from the App Store and Google Play.
Launched in early 2021, RØDE Connect is RØDE’s simple and powerful podcasting and streaming software. Previously only compatible with the NT-USB Mini, the Wireless GO II can now be used with RØDE Connect, allowing users to podcast or stream on a computer with professional quality wireless audio.
This is the first time ever that a compact wireless microphone system has been fully integrated with podcasting or streaming software, allowing users to capture broadcast-grade sound for their content with more freedom than ever before – perfect for IRL streaming, recording presentations or classes, and more. Using the Wireless GO II with RØDE Connect is also ideal for podcasting applications where creators require the freedom of wireless audio, from recording interviews to casual podcasting setups.
RØDE Connect allows two Wireless GO IIs to be connected to a single computer. Each transmitter can be allocated to its own channel in the software for a total of four separate wireless audio streams, each with an individual level meter, as well as solo and mute buttons. The Wireless GO II can also be used in conjunction with the NT-USB Mini within RØDE Connect.
