Rode NT-SF1

The Rode NT-SF1 is a 4 capsule ambisonic microphone that captures broadcast quality 360° surround sound that captures not only what direction the sound is located but the height of it too. Manufactured from solid brass, the NT-SF1 uses four Rode TF-45C ½” true-condenser cardioid microphone capsules arranged in a tetrahedral array to record the entire spherical sound field. Every sound, every direction, perfectly. Created in-house at Rode’s Sydney HQ, the TF-45C is machined to tolerances of less than 1 micron in our state-of-the-art fabrication facilities. The result is a capsule with breathtaking clarity, sonic purity and exceptionally low noise.

Whether creating surround audio for video games, sports broadcasts, feature films or Virtual Reality (VR) content, the NT-SF1 is perfect for all surround sound recording and, because it is recorded in A-Format and easily converted to B-Format, able to be manipulated in any direction in post-production. Using the free SoundField by Rode Plugin, you are the architect of the soundscape and can alter the mic directivity, position and rotation. Create a full 7.1.4 surround mix. Create a fully head-tracked 360-degree soundscape for immersive video. Whether recording opera, a swamp or a feature film, the NT-SF1 offers unparalleled quality and flexibility.
