RØDE’s AI-1 Audio Interface is stacked with incredible technology to ensure recording on your computer is easy, versatile and sounds superb.

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. Rode have also included phantom power on the input channel, for recording with microphones containing active electronics. Uniquely, the AI-1 features discreet circuitry for both the preamp and the headphone amp, giving you a fantastically clear signal path for both channels. Along with this it allows zero latency monitoring, a great feature for when you're recording vocals. Zero latency monitoring and phantom power are engaged by pushing in the output volume and preamp volume knob, respectively.

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. A great choice for beginners or anyone needing a simple, yet high quality audio interface for home recording.
