The highly anticipated RODE-Soundfield collaboration was announced a loooong time ago, and we finally received some stock in October 2018.
Let's have a quick look:
The SoundField by RØDE NT-SF1 is an ambisonic microphone that captures broadcast quality 360° surround sound (with height) in A-Format™ on four separate tracks. It is the first collaboration between the pioneering ambisonic brand SoundField and RØDE Microphones.
Precision manufactured from solid brass, the NT-SF1 uses four RØDE TF-45C ½” true-condenser cardioid microphone capsules arranged in a tetrahedral array to record the entire spherical sound field. Every sound, every direction, perfectly.
Whether creating surround audio for video games, sports broadcasts, feature films or VR content, NT-SF1 is great for all surround sound recording and, because it is recorded in A-Format™ and easily converted to B-Format™, able to be manipulated in any direction in post-production.

Using the free SoundField by RØDE Plugin, you are the architect of the soundscape and can alter the mic directivity, position and rotation. Create a full 7.1.4 surround mix. Create a fully head-tracked 360-degree soundscape for immersive video. Whether recording opera, a swamp or a feature film, the NT-SF1 offers unparalleled quality and flexibility.
The SBR Plugin has all standard surround-sound set-ups including Dolby Atmos up to 7.1.4 and is supported by Protools, Q-base, Nuendo, Reaper and Logic in VST, AU or AAX formats, all with RØDE’s legendary ease-of-use.
