The RØDECaster Pro II offers an unparalleled feature set designed to make any creator sound exceptional every time they hit record. It has four studio-grade Neutrik® combo inputs for connecting microphones as well as instruments, including guitar, bass, keyboards and other devices, unlocking a new world of creative possibility. Each input features RØDE’s ultra-low-noise, high-gain Revolution Preamps™, which deliver pristine audio quality with any microphone or instrument.
Even with these powerful capabilities, the RØDECaster Pro II is incredibly simple to use. Every feature is designed to minimise fuss and maximise creativity. The high-definition, full-colour touchscreen, combined with the tactile rotary encoder, makes navigating and controlling the console super simple. Professionally tailored presets and the highly innovative VoxLab™ processing editor allow anyone to capture incredible sound, even with no prior audio experience.
With an ultra-low noise level of just -131.5dBV and a whopping 76dB of gain on tap, the RØDECaster Pro II's preamps eliminate the need for microphone boosters, lifters or external processing , even with the most demanding dynamic mics. They are highly transparent, allowing every detail of what’s plugged in to shine and providing a clean platform to shape and enhance the signal using the on-board processing and effects. Developed specifically for the RØDECaster Pro II, these world-class preamps rival boutique designs that cost thousands of dollars per channel.
The RØDECaster Pro II also features a full suite of studio-quality APHEX® audio processors. These have been completely overhauled from the original RØDECaster Pro and remodelled using component-level analysis of analog units to deliver stunningly dynamic signal processing that allows anyone to capture the magic of a professional studio. A high-performance quad-core audio engine delivers significantly more processing power than any other content creation console on the market, while powerful on-board effects allow users to craft their own unique sound with unlimited creativity.
The RØDECaster Pro II is fully customisable and can adapt to any creative recording application, from livestreaming and gaming to podcasting to music production. It features nine individually assignable channels, with six broadcast-quality physical faders and three virtual faders. Any of the nine audio sources can be allocated to any fader, allowing users to design their ideal mixer configuration to suit their creative requirements and workflow.
Every setting, from the mixer configuration to SMART pads, as well as entire recordings, can be saved on-board as a ‘Show’, allowing users to get set up and recording in seconds. This also makes the RØDECaster Pro II ideal for creators who make different types of content, multi-functional studios, or production or education facilities that require different setups for different users.
The eight SMART pads are so much more than just sound pads; they can be customised to do everything from triggering on-the-fly voice effects like reverb, echo, robot and pitch FX, send MIDI commands to external software and hardware, activate automated mixer actions like fade-ins and fade-outs, and more. The bank switching buttons provide access to eight banks for a total of 64 unique actions at the touch of a button. The on-board effects and APHEX processors are also fully customisable, with granular on-board editing allowing users to fine-tune every parameter to suit their voice or instrument. All processing and effect parameters can be saved as presets and loaded at any time on any channel.
The RØDECaster Pro II offers unrivalled connectivity with a wide range of devices, unlocking more creative possibilities, more streamlined workflows, and easier integration with other equipment than ever before. It is the perfect audio control centre for any creator.

The RØDECaster Pro II also offers Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections, allowing users to update firmware wirelessly, integrate with hardware and software, and more.
