Before you arrive at the studio, there are a couple of things that will help your recording session go smoother. Our studios connect to the mics using a RØDECaster Pro interface, which you use to record.


You have two recording options, either record onto your laptop, or directly on to a microSD. We've explained more about each option before.


Recording with your laptop


Before you can use the RØDECaster Pro with a laptop, you need to download the RØDECaster Companion app from rode.com/rodecasterapp (available for Windows and Mac).


To record on your laptop, you’ll need a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) installed. We like Quicktime, Audacity, Garageband, and Reaper, but it’s up to your individual preference.


IMPORTANT: PC users will need to download and install the third-party audio driver ASIO4All for it to work correctly with your DAW. Once downloaded: 

  1. Go to the Windows Start Menu and open ASIO4ALL Offline Settings.
  2. Select your interface by clicking the button next to it. It will light up blue when selected.
  3. Open the input/playback settings menu of your DAW and select ASIO4ALL as the input/playback device. See below for your DAW settings menu.


Recording with a microSD card


You can also choose to record directly from the RØDECaster onto a microSD card, and import the audio to a DAW for editing later. Please bring a microSD card to your session as they’re not supplied.


Connecting by phone — accept calls/play music


You’ll either need a Bluetooth enabled phone or use your own AUX cable to connect your phone to the AUX input at the back of the RØDECaster interface.
