The RØDE Complete Studio Kit is a package consisting of an AI-1 USB Audio Interface that comes bundled with the peerless NT1 large-diaphragm condenser microphone. This package includes the NT1's matching shock mount, pop-shield [lose standmount], stand-mount, RØDE XLR cable, plus USB-C/A cables, all enabling you to seamlessly transfer data from the NT1 to the AI-1 to your computer, with the AI-1 unit powered from your computer (even including provision for 48V phantom power). You now have a complete, pro-quality computer recording interface solution at an affordable price. All you have to do is provide the computer, as this great bundle also comes with Ableton Live 9 Lite DAW software.

RØDE AI-1 USB Audio Interface
Stacked with incredible technology, RØDE's AI-1 Audio Interface is designed to ensure recording on your computer is easy. It's versatile and sounds superb. It has a single Neutrik™ Combo Jack input which takes either a 3-pole XLR, which is common to most microphones, or a ¼" jack, which is common to most electric instruments, such as guitar, bass, etc. Layering tracks is as easy as plug in, set level, and go.

It not only provides crystal-clear audio to your computer software, but thanks to its discrete studio-quality headphone output and level control your headphones will probably never sound sweeter.

NT1 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
The design engineers at RØDE approached the NT1 as a marriage of tradition with innovation, starting with a completely redesigned capsule. Codenamed the HF6, it is a perfect example the fusion of RØDE's artistic design approaches and cutting-edge fabricating techniques, and features a sound signature reminiscent of the classic and renowned microphones of the past, while simultaneously exhibiting current low noise technology.

The developmental focus on detailed midrange response, merged with silky smooth high frequencies, and warm, round bass reproduction, makes the NT1 a total standout in its class.

Another world-first for RØDE is the transducer itself being suspended inside the mic, implementing Rycote's industry-leading Lyre system which minimizes external vibrations at the capsule level. The capsule is then coupled to high-grade electronics that have been engineered to deliver the lowest noise level of any studio microphone on the market. It's an incredibly quiet microphone, and measures in at only 4.5dBA of self-noise.

Ableton Live 9 Lite
A custom version of Ableton Live music-making DAW software, Live 9 Lite provides all the essential workflows of Live 9, a fresh and easy way to write music, record audio, and produce your own songs recordings. Included with every purchase of the RØDE AI-1 Audio Interface, Ableton Live Lite is the ideal addition to your studio.
