The AI1 USB Audio Interface adds studio-quality input and output capabilities to your computer making home recording easier than it’s ever been. With its high quality Neutrik combo jack input and discrete Class-A preamp you’ll be able to connect it to a microphone, guitar or even a line level instrument such as a synthesizer.

Available as part of The Complete Studio Kit, the AI1 comes with RØDE’s peerless NT1 large diaphragm condenser microphone, SMR shock mount with pop-shield, 6M XLR cable and a USB C/A cable – home recording is as easy as opening the box.

Damien Wilson, CEO of RØDE Microphones added: “The AI1 is the best quality-for-price single-channel interface available, bar none. It’s also incredibly easy to use thanks to thoughtful design and Australian Made quality – it is the perfect companion to any of our Microphones.”

The AI1 allows zero-latency playback by enabling the direct monitoring feature as well as playback via headphones/speakers with the high quality discrete headphone amplifier. To ensure the AI-1 is truly versatile it features 48V Phantom Power and is class compliant – so no need to install any drivers. Ableton Live Lite is redeemable at www.rode.com/ableton.

The perfect first step into home recording

RØDE’s AI-1 Audio Interface is stacked with incredible technology to ensure recording on your computer is easy, versatile and sounds superb. The Complete Studio Kit comes with the AI-1, RØDE’s peerless NT1 large diaphragm condenser microphone, a shock mount and all cables.

Ableton Live Light

Live 9 Lite is a customised version of the music making software Ableton Live. With selected instruments and effects plus all the essential workflows of Live, it provides a fresh and easy way to write music, record audio and produce your own songs. FREE with every purchase of the RØDE AI-1 Audio Interface, Ableton Live Lite is the perfect addition to your studio workflow.

As for inputs: the AI-1’s got both kinds…

The AI-1’s single input is a NeutrikTM Combo Jack, which takes both a 3-pole XLR (common to most microphones) and a quarter-inch jack common to most electric instruments like guitar, bass et al. Layering tracks is as easy as plug in, set level and go.

No cords barred (and other puns)

The Complete Studio Kit comes with the RØDE NT1 studio condenser microphone, a shock mount, pop-shield [lose standmount], stand-mount, RØDE XLR cable and USB-C/A cables to transfer data from your AI-1 to your computer, and power – including 48V phantom power to your AI-1.

Superior Headphone Amplifier onboard

Not only does the AI-1 deliver crystal clear audio to your computer software, but headphones have never sounded sweeter thanks to the discrete studio-quality headphone output and level control.

Send And Receive Broadcast Quality Audio
With A Laptop

JetLink is a new software codec solution to send broadcast quality audio from point to point.

Based on the high-quality low-latency Opus codec, JetLink runs on Windows to connect via LAN, WAN or public internet.

Opus Codec

Opus is a high quality audio codec, handling both speech and music equally well. For any given bitrate, Opus is regarded as better quality and lower latency than any other audio codec around. Many broadcast codec manufacturers have already adopted Opus as an algorithm option. However, we believe Opus is the only useful codec for the future.

Try the Beta

For a limited time, you can sign up to the free beta and try it out for yourself.

We are actively looking for real-world tests, feedback and ideas. We already have quite a few people using JetLink live on-air, and are releasing new versions regularly based on user stories.

High Quality PC Audio

One of the challenges with PCs is getting good quality without an expensive array of outboard gear. We’ve had great success with the Komplete Audio 6 interface below. Look for a solution with local analog headphone monitoring, as that solves the problem of latency through a codec and PC. As usual for a remote link, you’ll need a mix-minus from your studio side.

We’ve also got the full range of Aussie-made RØDE mics and accessories on the brand new OnAir Solutions webstore.
