Introducing Wireless ME and RØDE Capture

Today we’re excited to announce a highly anticipated addition to our industry-leading range of wireless microphones, the Wireless ME. As creators of the first truly wireless wearable microphone system, RØDE has been the premier brand for cutting-edge, high-quality wireless microphones for over a decade.

The iconic RØDELink™ series broke new ground with its incredibly innovative 2.4Ghz digital wireless technology. This was followed by the Wireless GO™, the world’s first ultra-compact wireless microphone system. The Wireless GO revolutionised audio for content creators with its pocket-sized, clip-and-go form factor, professional sound quality and in-built microphones allowing for completely wireless operation – a format now replicated by numerous brands. The Wireless GO II™ revolutionised compact wireless audio once again, introducing next-generation features including dual-channel operation, on-board recording, extended range, and universal compatibility with cameras, smartphones, and computers.

The Wireless ME carries on this legacy. Combining the same unmatched sound quality and innovative features that RØDE wireless microphones are revered for with unprecedented ease of use, it is the ultimate grab-and-go microphone for content creators. To coincide with the release of the Wireless ME, we have also launched a free iOS video app, RØDE Capture. The first video app designed specifically for today’s creators, it is the perfect platform for making content on an iPhone and the perfect companion for the Wireless ME.

Professional Wireless, Easier than Ever

The Wireless ME™ makes capturing professional wireless audio easier than ever. Building on the same iconic form factor as the previous Wireless GO generations with new features that make it even more user-friendly and unlock new creative possibilities, the Wireless ME is the perfect microphone for creators who want to record pristine audio with absolute ease.

The Wireless ME consists of a single transmitter and receiver, which are paired out of the box for getting set up in seconds. It utilises RØDE’s state-of-the-art Series IV 2.4GHz digital transmission and proprietary near-zero latency codec with 128-bit encryption to deliver crystal-clear, incredibly stable audio with best-in-class range. And, like its siblings, it features a broadcast-quality microphone built into the transmitter, so there’s no extra equipment required to start recording.

Unmatched Creative Flexibility

In another world first, the Wireless ME also features a “narrator” microphone built into the receiver unit. Dubbed the ‘ME Mic’, this innovative feature allows creators to record audio from in front of and behind the camera simultaneously, making it ideal for capturing two-way interviews or voice overs for video content. For enhanced creative potential, a second Wireless ME or Wireless GO II transmitter can also be connected to the receiver, allowing for versatile dual-channel recording, or even a unique three-microphone wireless system.

Perfect Audio, Every Time

Designed to be as easy to use as possible, the Wireless ME is optimised to deliver professional sound quality with minimal setup required. It features our groundbreaking GainAssist technology, which utilises intelligent algorithms that automatically control your volume levels on-the-fly to ensure your audio is perfectly balanced and doesn’t clip or distort.

This technology is significantly more advanced than standard automatic gain control features found on cameras and other audio devices, delivering incredibly clean audio with no level pumping or background noise elevation. There are two modes available, ‘Auto’ and ‘Dynamic’, allowing users to choose the perfect setting for their recording scenario. The output gain can also be adjusted to perfectly match the recording device. These features and other configuration options are accessible via the RØDE companion app for desktop and mobile, RØDE Central. The Wireless ME works seamlessly with all cameras, iOS and Android smartphones, and Mac and Windows computers, and comes with all the cables required for recording with compatible devices – the ultimate grab-and-go wireless microphone for content creators.

The Perfect iOS Video App for Today’s Creators

In addition to the release of the Wireless ME, we have also released a free iOS video app, RØDE Capture. The first video app designed with today’s creators at heart, RØDE Capture offers powerful and unique features with an intuitive interface and is the ideal platform for shooting video content for TikTok, Snapchat, YouTube Shorts, and Instagram Reels.

For the first time ever, RØDE Capture allows you to take full control over your video and audio in the same app for creating content that looks and sounds incredible. It offers direct in-app control of compatible RØDE products, including the Wireless ME, Wireless GO II, VideoMic GO II, and more. This includes turning features on and off, activating digital signal processing, adjusting audio levels, and advanced configuration, so you can get the most out of these powerful, next-generation microphones and adapt to different recording scenarios seamlessly. No other video app offers direct control of an external microphone, making RØDE Capture (combined with a RØDE mic) the perfect solution for recording professional audio for your mobile content.

RØDE Capture is a fully featured video app, offering control over aspect ratio, video resolution, frame rate and zoom. For even more creative flexibility, it also features Dual Cam modes for recording with the front and selfie cameras simultaneously, either in split screen or picture-in-picture mode – perfect for interviews where you need to capture the interviewer and interviewee at the same time. This unique feature integrates seamlessly with the Wireless ME’s in-built transmitter and receiver microphones, allowing you to record high-quality both video and audio from both in front of and behind the camera.

The release of the Wireless ME and RØDE Capture mark another milestone in the evolution of creator technology and another step in our mission to provide high-quality, accessible audio solutions for today’s creative generation.
