How To Use Multitrack With The RØDECaster Pro: Walkthroughs For Your DAW
Earlier this year, we announced the first major firmware update for the RØDECaster Pro Podcast Production Studio. This introduced a stack of new features, including an updated user interface, mix-minus on the USB output and the much-anticipated multitrack to USB functionality.
How To Set Up Multitrack Recording on The RØDECaster Pro
Multitrack mode (called ‘multi-channel’ mode on the RØDECaster) allows you to record not only the stereo mix of your podcast (as was previously the case with the RØDECaster) but also each individual track, allowing you to mix and edit your podcast in post-production.
This is activated via the RØDECaster Pro’s ‘Advanced’ settings. Once activated, an additional RØDECaster Pro USB output device will appear on your computer, in addition to the regular stereo USB output.
This additional USB device has 14 different sources available. The first two tracks are the stereo mix, exactly as the RØDECaster Pro records to the microSD card. The remaining tracks represent the sources on the RØDECaster Pro, going from left to right across the console – starting with Mic 1 and going across through Mics 2, 3 and 4, the USB input, TRRS phone connector, Bluetooth input, and finally the sound pads. The mic channels are single mono tracks, and all the other tracks are stereo – first left, then right. There is also the option to remove audio processing from the multitrack outputs, while it remains on main stereo mix
The process for accessing and allocating tracks on you computer will vary dependfing on what DAW and operating system you use. We have created a handy suite of walkthroughs to guide you through these processes. The DAWs we have covered are Audition, GarageBand, Logic Pro X, ProTools, and Reaper.
