The RØDECaster Pro is an incredibly flexible audio interface that can be used for livestreaming as well as podcasting. If you’re a Twitch streamer who needs additional sound sources while streaming your gameplay, an IRL streamer who needs to connect multiple sources for a Facebook livestream, or even a podcaster who streams live on YouTube, the RØDECaster Pro is the perfect solution.

The benefit of using the RØDECaster Pro for streaming is that it’s capable of combining a variety of sound sources, whether via the microphone channels, smartphone or USB channels or sound pads. This allows for endless expansion for any content creator who needs more options while streaming.

In order to stream, you’ll likely be using software like XSplit or OBS. For the purposes of this guide, we’ll be using OBS on PC with a focus on the audio side of setting up.


Pro Tip

If your computer has a USB-C input, the SC17 cable can be used to connect the RØDECaster Pro to your computer.


In order to send the audio from your RØDECaster Pro to OBS, open OBS, navigate to ‘Sources’ and press the + button and select ‘Audio Input Capture’.

Once selected, you can rename this newly created source as ‘RØDECaster Pro’. Press ‘OK’ and you will be prompted to select a device for this source.

Once this is setup, all audio from the RØDECaster Pro will be routed to OBS, including the microphones, sound pads, smartphone channel, bluetooth channel and anything playing through the USB channel. The same works vice versa with all audio from the computer, including gameplay, music etc; this audio will be heard via the USB channel on the RØDECaster Pro.

Pro Tip

Once set up correctly, everything from the RØDECaster Pro can be heard within the communication app. This includes your microphones, as well as any sounds from the sound pads, phone calls, smartphone channel etc. This opens up plenty of opportunities to troll your teammates/opponents in-game!
