Our friends at RØDE are out on the bleeding edge with this new microphone announced April 1st – the new FoodMic Pro – granted it is a bit of a niche product, but I know plenty of our readers who are foodie filmmakers and this will fit right in with their passions.
I'm not sure why they didn't announce this along with all of the other amazing mics at the recent RØDE Show 2017 – but maybe they thought this would be such a great surprise for the market – and coming just before NAB this could be the best announcement we see just before the big NAB show.
RØDE Revolutionises Food Appreciation With the All New FoodMic Pro Cuisine Condenser Microphone
“Food finally sounds as good as it tastes.”
April 01, 2017: Sydney Australia Pro-audio brand RØDE Microphones is announcing a brand new microphone category – the Cuisine Condenser Microphone – and the world’s-first ever such microphone: the FoodMic Pro.
So, what is a Cuisine Condenser Microphone?
A Cuisine Condenser Microphone is a bespoke-frequency ceramic element condenser microphone in a unique plate form-factor. Why? To capture the sound of food. With the explosion of food-blogging, food vlogging and food appreciation, RØDE’s Head of R&D Nigel Wilburtsonsson realised a huge market segment was waiting to be filled.
“It was in part inspired by my good mate and food vlogging sensation Johnny Choo (The Camera Eats First),” says Nigel. “His incredible film vlogs of food lacked the kind of high fidelity only RØDE mics can provide: sound. Or, as we call it, ‘The Sound Of Deliciousnessness.’”
Packed with incredible Features:
* Ceramic Element
* Internal Plate-Valve® Technology
* Infinitely Variable Gastronomic Pick-up patterns
* High-Fibre-Pass Filter
* Comes with RØDELink TX-XLR (for remote plating)
* Non-stick Jus-Resistant coating
RØDE CEO Damien Wilson is ecstatic with the release of another gamechanging product from RØDE, complementing another outlier moment in history. “When the ADAT was released in the early 1990s, RØDE was there with the NT1. When DSLR filmmaking became a reality in 2008, we were there with the VideoMic. And now, as food appreciation and the internet combine to make us all tastemasters, RØDE is there with the FoodMic Pro. As Johnny and Nigel say, welcome to the sound of deliciousnessness.”
