Back in 2005 RØDE caught up with legendary engineer Bruce Swedien in his studio in Connecticut. Bruce was kind enough to track a few songs with guitarist Bobby Croft using the RØDE NT4 stereo microphone. Since this recording the NT4 become a staple in Bruce’s mic collection.
The RØDE NT4 stereo microphone offers a perfect X/Y stereo array without the need for matched pair microphones and complex stereo bars and equipment.
Combining a matched pair of 1/2” cardioid condenser capsules fixed in a perfect 90 degree near-coincident alignment, the NT4 instantly creates a faithful stereo array that is ideal for drum overheads, percussion, choir vocals, environmental recording and sound design.
The NT4‘s versatility is further extended by its ability to be powered by a 9V battery, in addition to 48V phantom power. Both stereo XLR and 3.5mm minijack cables are supplied to ensure the NT4 is ready to record to mixing console, portable recorder or camera.
