Rode has a lot of products with similar names: the Rode Procaster, Rodecaster Pro, The Broadcaster, and the Podcaster. Most of these products are microphones, but for the sake of clarity, the RODECaster Pro is an all-in-one audio production tool that I’ve totally fallen in love with.

I was toying around with the idea of improving audio quality for live The Rodecaster is a pretty simple plug and play device. I’m using a Mac, but I believe this should work the same way on Windows. As soon as you connect the USB cable from the Rodecaster’s USB C port to your computer and open OBS, you should see the Rodecaster as an available audio source.

This now gives you the option to use 4 XLR inputs for a live stream, along with auxiliary and Bluetooth sources. Since the Rodecaster makes it easy to incorporate phone calls as an audio source, this also means that it opens up the option to bring live calls into your livestreams.

The Rodecaster Pro is seriously awesome. Of course, you don’t need expensive gear to create great stuff, but well thought out tools like this can improve your workflow and make it easier and ore fun to create cool things!

About The Enthusiasm Project!
Make a Video • Make an Impact

My name is Tom Buck. I’m a high school digital media teacher with a lifelong interest in video, photo, and tech. Basically, I’ve always had “too many” hobbies, but finding new ways to connect the dots and learn new things along the way has always been incredibly fun and interesting.

I like to share what I know to help others get excited about making cool stuff. Life is short and time is limited, and I believe that digital media, and especially video, is a powerful tool to express creativity and explore new ideas.

I upload new videos every Thursday morning, and more often when possible!
