RØDECaster Pro II Firmware 1.1.1 Introduces Advanced Sub-mixing and More
Rode Rodecaster Pro II Audio Production Studio Features
A new major firmware update has landed for the RØDECaster Pro II, making the world’s most powerful all-in-one audio solution for content creators even more powerful.
With firmware version 1.0.7, you could customise each of the USB and Bluetooth outputs by selecting which channels would be heard on these outputs. The new update takes this functionality to the next level, allowing you to independently adjust the level of each channel for all ten audio outputs (both digital and analog), including the headphone and monitor outputs, the Bluetooth channel, on-board recording mix, and the three USB outputs.
From the main mixing screen, simply tap the settings cog in the top-right corner of the screen, navigate to ‘Outputs’ > ‘Routing’, and choose one of the ten outputs to configure. From here, you’ll notice that every output has a ‘Custom’ option at the top of the screen – tapping this will show you the new sub-mix screen for that output.
In addition to the new advanced sub-mixing feature, firmware 1.1.1 introduces a number of system optimisations and workflow improvements, including the routing of voice effects, which are now applied to each individual channel in multitrack mode, allowing users to capture these effects while maintaining the post-production flexibility that multitrack recording offers.
The RØDECaster Pro II’s companion software RØDE Central has also been updated to mirror all of the configuration options now available on the RØDECaster Pro II itself, including setting up the advanced APHEX® audio processing, SMART pads and custom sub-mixes.
Firmware version 1.1.1 for the RØDECaster Pro II is available for direct download now – connect your unit to the internet via Wi-Fi or Ethernet to update, or download and install the latest version of RØDE Central to update it when connected to your computer.

Exceptional Sound for Every Creator:
The RØDECaster Pro II offers an unparalleled feature set designed to make anyone sound exceptional every time they hit record. Four studio-grade Neutrik combo inputs with our ultra-low-noise, high-gain Revolution Preamps deliver astonishing clarity and transparency with any microphone or instrument. Users can craft their own unique sound with a full suite of studio-quality APHEX processors, including the legendary Aural Exciter, Big Bottom and Compellor, and powerful on-board effects, including reverb, delay, pitch shifting, robot effects and more. A high-performance quad-core audio engine delivers significantly more processing power than any other content creation console on the market and unlocks huge potential for future updates.
The RØDECaster Pro II features four high-end studio preamps that have been designed from the ground up to deliver pristine audio quality with any microphone or instrument. With an ultra-low noise level of just -131.5dBV and a whopping 76dB of gain on tap, they eliminate the need for microphone boosters, lifters or external processing, even with the most demanding dynamic mics. They are highly transparent, allowing every detail of what’s plugged in to shine and providing a clean platform to shape and enhance the signal using the on-board processing and effects.
Every great recording starts with a great microphone and a great preamp. The RØDECaster Pro II features four phenomenal preamps that rival boutique designs that cost thousands of dollars per channel, complete with broadcast-quality faders for precise gain adjustment, accurate digital level metering, and high-power headphone and speaker outputs for monitoring in stunning definition.
Just add a RØDE mic and you’re golden.
To compliment these high-end preamps, the RØDECaster Pro II offers studio-quality signal processing powered by one of the most revered names in pro audio: APHEX.
On-board is a suite of legendary APHEX processors each painstakingly remodelled for the RØDECaster Pro II to deliver authentic emulations of classic hardware units. This includes the Aural Exciter for adding sheen and sparkle, Big Bottom for adding richness and depth, and the legendary Compellor master compressor/leveller for adding that all-important final touch. There is also a de-esser, noise gate, high-pass filter and equaliser, also powered by APHEX.
These can be tweaked to taste using the RØDECaster Pro II’s innovative VoxLab processing editor, which utilises three intuitive controls to change multiple parameters on multiple processors for achieving pro results in seconds, or via the advanced editor for granular editing (either on-board or with a computer). All settings can be saved as presets and re-loaded at any time on any channel.
The Perfect Audio Control Centre for Any Creator’s Setup:
The RØDECaster Pro II offers unrivalled connectivity with a wide range of devices, unlocking more creative possibilities, more streamlined workflows, and easier integration with other equipment than ever before. It’s the perfect audio control centre for any creator’s setup.

Advanced Bluetooth connectivity with wide-band speech can be used for ultra-high-quality phone call integration, crystal-clear audio streaming, wireless monitoring and more.
