“With the AI-Micro, we set out to create the perfect solution for recording high-quality audio with a smartphone, tablet or computer using a 3.5mm microphone,” says RØDE CEO Damien Wilson.

“The intention was to take the core design of our hugely popular SC6-L interface for iPhone and iPad and make it compatible with more devices and adaptable to a wider range of recording applications. By adding a universal USB output, enhanced microphone inputs, and compatibility with RØDE’s powerful app suite, we have absolutely achieved that. The AI-Micro is a must-have for everyone from content creators in need of an ultra-portable recording solution to professionals looking for an easy way to capture great sound while working from home.”

Incredible Audio, Anywhere

The AI-Micro features two microphone inputs with high-quality preamps and can record high-resolution 24-bit/48kHz audio, allowing you to capture stellar sound on any device. These are auto-sensing inputs that detect whether a TRS or TRRS microphone is connected and automatically adapt to accommodate – no adaptors needed. Input 1 can also be configured as a single stereo TRS input.

This means that virtually any microphone with a 3.5mm output can be connected to the AI-Micro, including RØDE VideoMics, lavaliers, wireless systems like the Wireless GO, and stereo microphones like the Stereo VideoMic Pro. It also features a high-power headphone output for crystal-clear, zero-latency audio monitoring and playback.

Weighing less than 20 grams, the AI-Micro is extremely compact and lightweight – a pocket-sized solution for recording incredible audio anywhere.

The AI-Micro is designed to connect seamlessly to smartphones, tablets and computers via its universal USB output. It is plug-and-play compatible with Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices, and comes with high-quality USB-A, USB-C and Lightning cables, making it quick and easy to get recording in no time.
