I am a Class 'A' Radio Amateur with a particular interest in broadcasting quality audio. Over the 35 years I have been 'on the air' I have owned & used many different studio mics. A short while ago I decided to buy the Rode Procaster dynamic mic & have not been disappointed. The mic is beautifully built, excellent quality construction, the equal of any mic I have previously owned. I would compare this to a much more expensive mic the Electrovoice RE20 which I have owned & in all honesty I prefer the Procaster. This mic has a warmth & clarity which has to be heard to realise how good it is. I can highly recommend this superb mic to anyone considering the purchase.

So this is a great microphone from the guys at rode, as usual. So I actually used this microphone with my PreSonus audiobox 22VSL which is a great usb interface, If you don't own a pre amp you will have to get one for this microphone as its a dynamic and quite allot of gain will need to be added in order for this microphone to shine!

Sound Quality:
WOW, it Sounds great, not as good as the electro voice RE27 but still sounds amazing, In all honesty I prefer the ProCaster to the RE20 and the SM7B which are both meant to be studio level microphones I'm not saying that the re20 or sm7b are bad mics but the procaster sounds better with my voice personally. The procaster sounds warm and tight not as full and mellow as the re20 but theres something about the procaster's sound which I absolutely love, overall it sounds great and for the price you cant go wrong.

Build Quality:
This thing is built like a freaking tank! its all metal and it weights a ton (not really, around 700G) there isn't a single bit of plastic on this microphone and I love that, This microphone will last for years & years to come.

Looks:
Its Beautiful.

Conclusion:
If you want to build a studio or run a podcast and you want to do it all on a tight budget then I'd definitely suggest to get this microphone and the PreSonus 22VSL and a nice PreAmp like the PreSonus TubePre V2, this combo of products will produce a beautiful sound which everyone will love, on the other hand if you're budget is a little bit larger then I'd suggest the ElectroVoice RE27 it sounds "larger" and "meatier" whilst still maintaining that rich sparkly high end.

The procaster is great and is definitely worth the £125.

As expected it's a pretty fantastic microphone, not much new to be said here.
I do have some warnings though, this thing needs gain, so be sure you have a good preamp to combo with it. Had to turn the gain up to 8/10 on a D-PRE preamp and it sounds goood.
Also I'm not sure if I'm an isolated case, but mine had some jerkyness in the XLR connector and later found out the little XLR socket at the bottom of it wasn't tightly screwed and could be pulled out of the microphone casing if not careful. It was easily fixed by screwing it in with a small flathead screwdriver.

WOW!! What an improvement over my previous Sennheiser Mic which I had to turn up full on the mixer and the sound quality was never that good. This mic is just what I needed for my studio, works perfectly, looks the business, good build quality and sounds terrific and I don't need to buy a preamp with it as the gain on my Pioneer mixer is more than enough. You cannot go wrong with this make of mic - if you are thinking about buying one....go for it

This mic delivers spoken voice sound on a par with mics costing at least twice as much.
You will need lots of gain to get a solid level from the mic. I have to turn the input on my Konnekt 24D all the way up and then boost the level in OBS which I use to stream. However, even with all that gain I hear no hiss. I also need to have mic very close to my mouth (which I do via a clip onto desk boom arm), but it can be placed far enough away such that pop and plosives are not audible without the need for an additional pop shield. That being said I don't shout down the mic.
The necessary positioning of the mic and its design is very good at rejecting any external noise. I live by a very busy road and no traffic noise is picked up, except the sirens of the occasional emergency vehicle a bit.

Compares really well to much more expensive equipment, lovely and heavy with great build quality. Brilliant sound, has that really nice radio broadcast sound to it, brilliant for podcasting or anything along those lines.

Has worked perfectly for months.

This microphone is the first XLR powered device I've owned and the sound difference from USB is astounding, when used in conjunction with my Scarlett 2i2 the voice clarity is impressive.
