The new microphone comes with a large number of improvements, andIt aims to provide an easy way for content makers to record audio from two people simultaneously.
Like its predecessor, the Wireless Go II is a wireless microphone designed for content makers who want equipment on a budget.
The kit now comes with two transmitters and one receiver, enabling the microphone Portable two-channel recording from two sources, extended wireless range for more stable transmission, and internal recording capabilities as a secure alternative.
The transmitters have built-in omnidirectional microphones or a 3.5mm TRS input for connecting a separate microphone.
And you can connect the Wireless GO II receiver via USB or Lightning, so you are no longer limited to recording using the 3.5mm port.
The receiver can record in stereo mode and output audio via the USB-C port to a phone or computer, or via the 3.5mm analog TRS to a separate recorder or camera input.
The new transmitters contain internal storage so you can either record directly to them or use them to back up via the device.
Rode claims there’s enough room for a full 24 hours of audio without an SD card, even though the batteries only last up to seven hours.
You can keep the multi-track recording separately for post production somewhere linked to a battery pack.
Improvements on the software side include the option to record in stereo or mono, 3-stage control and a security channel that records a backup copy internally.
The new model provides an extended wireless range of up to 200 meters, and with these added features, Rode’s Wireless Go II should help alleviate the stress caused by audio issues that plague the regular audio player.
The microphone also helps ensure that multiple sources are captured, avoid any interference from uncontrolled environments, and have a backup of any lost audio data.
Most of these features are accessed via a new app called Rode Central, and the Rode Wireless Go II microphone is now available for $ 299.
