The seminal Rode NT2-A Variable-Pattern Condenser is now shipping bundled with a range of accessories, but at no increase in cost. The NT2A Studio Solution Pack includes the SM6 shockmount with integrated pop shield, a dust pouch, XLR cable and NT2 Recording Techniques DVD with Grammy Nominated producer John Merchant.

the new Rode NT2-A is a professional large capsule (1”) condenser studio microphone with variable pick-up pattern, variable high pass filter and variable pad.

 These features provide greater creative control and versatility. Three 3-position switches located on the mic body provide the freedom to step from Figure 8, Cardioid or Omni polar pick-up patterns; from a flat response to either 80 Hz or 40 Hz high-pass filter and a Pad adjustment of 0 dB, -5 dB or -10 dB attenuation.

The heart of the NT2-A is the Australian designed and manufactured TYPE HF1 dual diaphragm capsule. The frequency and transient response of this new transducer has been voiced to complement today’s modern recording techniques, and yet still evoke the silky smooth character of the legendary microphones of the 50’s and 60’s. The NT2-A includes a soft pouch and clip and Rode's standard 10 year warranty.

Rode NT2-A Studio Solution Pack Reviews

10/10

Rode NT2-A

This is a very good studio mic, and at the price it gives stunning results. I have also used it to mic my classical guitar through an amp to give a general sound boost in a live performance in a moderately large hall. And as I had set up the mic so the front pointed slightly downwards towards the guitar, I was able to provide a missing bit of vocal harmony by switching from cardioid to figure 8 pattern. This allowed me to sing briefly into the other side of the mic by simply leaning over the top of the Rode!

The ability to switch polar patterns between cardioid, figure 8, and omni gives the NT2-A greater recording flexibility than its cheaper cardioid-only sibling, the NT1-A. The high pass filter switch is useful for reducing bass rumble below either 80 Hz or 40 Hz. My only niggle is that the choice of options on the Pad switch is slightly eccentric. Instead of the two options which reduce level by 5 dB and 10 dB respectively - which Rode think is useful when recording loud sound sources such as close mic\'d drums or amplifiers - I would have preferred 10 dB and 20 dB. I\'m not sure -5 dB is an option that would be used much with a loud sound source, but as I said, this is a niggle.

Beautifully made, the NT2-A is a mic that announces you are serious about your recordings! Highly recommended.

P.S. You might just want to note that one of the other reviews of this mic on the Dolphin website actually appears to refer to the more expensive Rode NT2000, which is the one that actually has the infinitely variable Polar pickup patterns. I considered the NT2000 but decided I would probably spend too much time fiddling around with polar patterns!

You want separation??

My first, but hopefully not my last experience of Rode mikes. I was dead impressed by the sound/price ratio. I tried two and immediately got another 4. I found them at least as quiet as the best and most expensive large-capsule mics I've used, and the sound in any directional mode was extremely acceptable, with absolutely stunning separation possible by use of the infinitely-variable pattern control. Imagine the dead spot surrounding a fig-8 mic as a disc-shaped region of total null; then as you turn the control towards hyper-cardiod, this disc collapses gently into a backward-facing cone, which in turn collapses into a point at full cardiod.

So for mind-boggling separation on - say - a violin, I put the mic in what I seems to be that particular fiddle's sweet spot (often for me over the head of the player pointing to the bass-bar side of the table by the tailpiece). Then I stuff the signal down the foldback, put on a pair of cans, and get the tambourine player to gently hit that damnned tambourine, while adjusting the disc-into-cone characteristic of the dual capsule. At one point the tambourine will just disappear into wall-reflection only and you can move the mike even further from the fiddle than you could believe possible. If the mic is horizontal and higher than the tambourine, then just have the knobs facing upwards, and your cone will point downwards. Of course, if you can get the fig-8 disk-shaped null to intersect with the loud stuff, then no need for the cans, just do it by eye...

Of course the sound on omni can't really compare to a single-capsule fixed omni, after all, you're simply combining the output of a couple of inevitably-compromised cardiods, but when you just gotta have the separation, this infinitely variable trick is, for me, sensational, and re-defines separation in all sorts of tricky situations.

Oh, and completely off the point, could Dolphin'e web-master please read Lynn Truss's book 'Eats Shoots and Leaves' Otherwise, why not just go the whole hog and put an apostrophe before every single damned 's'...? Maybe he/she used to run a fruit stall advertising CUCUMBER'S, TOMARTOE'S APPLE'S etc....) Try submitting a review, and you'll see what I mean.

Great Mic

A fantastic classy sounding mic, with a sturdy build. The attention to detail Rode have put into this mic is breath taking considering its price. Only draw back is it doesn't have a hard carry case. Still an overall a great buy.
