abunda_amazon_reviews I used to get comments about loud background noise in the room, from my pc case fans and the two air conditioners I have. Now, they hear nothing from the background and I get asked what mic I use because they notice the pro sounding quality. I love this mic.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 15, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Sound like a pro and without background noise.;;Josh;;;Fantastic microphone for voiceover work, podcasting, and any sort of radio/broadcasting application. It's extremely well built with a metal exterior. Have a quality mount/stand ready, because this puppy ain't light. No fancy buttons or alternate functions on the exterior, just a straight forward microphone. It sounds great running through my DBX286s and Behringer UMC404HD. It's got plenty of bass, but it's not muddy. The high end is clear without being shrill. It sounds pretty good straight out of the box, but really comes alive with a little post processing. It needs a healthy amount of clean gain. I'm running mine through the aforementioned DBX286s, and that provides plenty of gain and sounds great. Another option would be something like a Cloudlifter. If you're looking for a great sounding mic for spoken word applications at a great price, the Procaster is worthy of your consideration. It hangs with some of the more expensive big dogs and doesn't miss a beat.;;Reviewed in the United States on June 12, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Fantastic microphone for broadcasting/podcasting at a great price;;Alex;;;Much of the choice of a microphone goes through personal taste so what I can say is that the construction is incredible, made to last, definitely. It seems to me that the sound is quite clear and flat, which makes it very versatile for many types of voice, that is what it is made for. The proximity effect is notorious and although with good vocal technique and the wind / antipop screen you can avoid plosives and other noises, the ideal scenario is to use an antipop filter. The noise level it generates is very controlled as well and with an interface with a good amount of gain it can be used with great sound quality. At the beginning I used it with a focusrite scarlet 2i2 3rd gen, the gain should be close to 95% which introduced extra noise, although very usable and clean. I had to return that interface (faulty unit) and acquired a Motu M2 and the microphone now really has more gain room and the noise is even lower, it is definitely a great combination. I noticed two things in internet: One of the pins of the mic is larger than the others. In the Rode FAQ website you can see that this is normal. Is the ground pin and is made in that way to guarantee that this pin connects first and protect the mic. Some people show the pins being pulled of after removing the XLR connector. To avoid that, before connect the cable, just be sure that the bolt in the little hole near of the connector is tight enough.;;Reviewed in the United States on December 7, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;A great mic, just be sure to combine it with the right interface;;Steven Molina;;;I was using the Audio Technica AT2020 condenser mic for quite some time. While it is a very good microphone, it was very sensitive in picking up my background noise. I needed a dynamic mic that would only capture just my voice with very little to possibly no background noise. I read up on the Procaster and thought, even though it's a microphone that has been available for quite some time, it looks to be the mic that I needed. And that it was! First impressions, the mic is built like a truck. Solid metal casing, nice grilles along the top end, and even though I have no experience with any high end or expensive studio microphones, I just knew the procaster would meet my expectations based on the construction. Not only is it built solidly, but it has some serious weight to it. It's about 1.5 to 1.7 lbs, so my cheap boom arm was not going to handle it. I have read that you need a cloudlifter or some sort of preamp to use with the mic, which is somewhat true. The input or sound is very low. However, I didn't need one as the mixer I have had more than enough preamp ability to provide sufficient gain to the mic. If you have a mixer with a good preamp, then you don't need to spend the extra money for an additional preamp. The procaster is exactly what I needed. It captures my voice (which is deeper) extremely well. Most notably, it does not pick up much of the background noise that my AT2020 would. Perfect! I just had to adjust to keeping my mouth near the mic to maintain sound. It comes with a built in pop filter, which I can confirm works great. I could use the foam pop filter I had lying around, but the mic just looks sexier without it. It does not need any phantom power to work either since it is a dynamic microphone! The mic came in a nice leather pouch, with an adapter and some docs in the box. I was very please to see that I could register and get the 10 year warranty for the mic. 10 years! That tells me RODE is confident in their products. Overall, the quality, the performance, and price, just outstanding across the board! When I need additional equipment, RODE will be the very first in line for my business!;;Reviewed in the United States on March 5, 2020;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;By far, the best microphone I have purchased;;McGoogly;;;This is the perfect mic for long form narration and recording audio books. As a professional voice over talent and narrator, I need a microphone that is a sturdy, high quality mic, with low noise. Narrating for hours requires a microphone that doesn't pick up the air conditioner or the pool pump. Although I am a fan of Neumann and the Blue series, they are extremely sensitive (great for fast jobs like telephony or radio and TV spots), but for the long haul in the recording booth, this Rode Procaster (not to be confused with the Rode Podcaster), is a great little mic for e-Learning, long form narration and especially for audio book narration. I really love it! Highly recommended for professional narrators and voice talents!;;Reviewed in the United States on November 17, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Rode Rules!;;LP;;;First off this mic feels bullet proof. If you need a weapon in the studio grab this thing. RODE knows these are tanks as they ship them without any cushioning at all. As for the sound, holy crap this thing is crisp, with a perfect note of bass. This is the mic you want if you are a podcaster. Forget the USB, and low end crap. This mic will save you the difference in price easily. You will likely need very little sound proofing. It rejects background noise really well. I’ll add to this as I use it more. I wanted a high end mic and this one just might put that goal off the list.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 20, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Solid Performer That is Built Like a Tank!;;Revolution MacInnes
