The first product for the SoundField By RØDE family is a marriage of SoundField’s pristine ambisonic recording technology and RØDE’s commitment to audio excellence accessible by all creators.

Completely designed and made in Australia at RØDE’s Sydney campus, the NT-SF1 is a triumph of innovation and manufacturing quality. Featuring four of RØDE’s all-new, ultra-quiet ½-inch TF45C capsules in tetrahedral array, the NT-SF1 produces natural, transparent four channel A-format recordings which can be transformed and manipulated in B-Format, courtesy of the soon-to-be-released SoundField by RØDE plugin.

And the sound? The NT-SF1 offers startling spatial accuracy, coupled with a natural transparency.

Soundfield By RØDE

SoundField invented the ambisonic microphone, revolutionising 3D audio production. RØDE revolutionised the microphone industry, using advanced manufacturing techniques to deliver broadcast-quality precision microphones at accessible prices. Now, for the first time, the magic of these two iconic brands has come together.

The NT-SF1

Based on a completely new capsule designed by RØDE, the NT-SF1 offers extremely low noise and unprecedented smoothness and extension of frequency response. The ambisonic arrangement and tuning is drawn directly from high-end SoundField technology, ensuring the most accurate spatialisation possible for the ultimate in 3D audio positioning.

Applications

The NT-SF1 is the perfect mic for a range of applications, from music recording through to capturing 3D soundscapes for VR applications. As productions increasingly require the use of surround or multi-channel spatial reproduction, the NT-SF1 should be part of every sound recordist’s arsenal.

Record. Everything.

The NT-SF1 records the entire spherical sound field. Every sound, every direction, perfectly. This means that later, in post-production, you can manipulate the sound. 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.

The TF-45C capsule

At the heart of the NT-SF1 is the brand-new TF-45C true condenser capsule. This completely new design breaks new ground in precision manufacturing. Created in-house at RØDE’s Sydney HQ, it 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.

The SoundField by RØDE Plugin Processor

The new NT-ST1 is perfectly matched to the new SoundField by RØDE plugin ambisonic processor. The new SoundField by RØDE plugin has been designed to offer the most accurate spatialisation and sound reproduction when used with the NT-SF1.
