SoundField by RØDE NT-SF1 360°

Posted on: Wednesday 19th of September 2018

RØDE Microphones’s new SoundField by RØDE NT-SF1 360° Surround Ambisonic Microphone is now shipping internationally.

The first result of a joint development with SoundField (acquired by RØDE parent The Freedman Group in 2016). “When The Freedman Group acquired SoundField, the aim was to continue producing the premier 360-degree audio capture loved by the professionals who bring us cinema sound and 7.1 broadcast,” says Freedman Group CEO Damien Wilson. “And we are. But, as is the RØDE way, we have brought our manufacturing and design expertise to bear on this new family of microphones. The SoundField By RØDE NT-SF1 is for creators for whom the ultra-high-end SoundField products are out of reach, and delivers results unmatched by all but the most expensive ambisonic microphones.”

The NT-SF1 is supplied with a compact blimp windshield and fur cover for wind protection, and a shock mount. The mic is based around four new TF45C half-inch cardioid capsules set in a tetrahedral array. The microphone records in A-Format, and when converted to B-Format, says RØDE, the microphone can provide four tracks that can be manipulated in any direction in post, assuming any polarity and enabling free placement within the 360° soundfield.

The mic comes with the SoundField by RØDE companion plug-in for Windows and Mac. Matched to the NT-SF1 Microphone, the plug-in uses frequency-domain processing to deliver spatial accuracy. Using beamforming technology, B-Format is claimed to be able to create shotgun-type patterns. The plug-in supports Dolby Atmos up to 7.1.4, in Pro Tools, Cubase, Nuendo, Reaper and Logic in VST, AU or AAX formats. The NT-SF1 has an MSRP of $999.
