Pro Tip

Connecting the Wireless GO II to your smartphone or tablet via USB-C rather than using the 3.5mm analog TRS output gives you access to a number of useful features:

High-quality audio output – Using the USB-C output bypasses the recording device's analog input circuitry, giving a direct digital signal transfer for optimum quality.

Headphone monitoring – Using the USB-C output frees up the 3.5mm output so you can plug your headphones in and monitor your audio while recording. You can even use the gain control to adjust the volume of your headphones.

Connecting to the RØDECaster Series

You can pair up to two Wireless GO II transmitters to the RØDECaster Pro II or RØDECaster Duo and they will be treated like any other input channel, meaning that you can record, mix and apply the APHEX ® processing, effects to your wireless audio. To pair a Wireless GO II transmitter to your RØDECaster Pro II or Duo, access the channel set-up screen by pressing the physical button above the fader you wish to assign your wireless device to. On this screen, you will see a list of microphone, instrument and other input options that you can scroll through. Scroll to the left to select the ‘Wireless’ option, tap ‘Pair New Device’ to enter pairing mode, power on your Wireless GO II transmitter and short-press its power button (ensuring that the transmitter isn’t already connected to another receiver). Your device’s connectivity, recording, mute and battery status status will be displayed on this screen.

Note: Assigning any of the four input channels to the ‘Wireless’ option will override the associated physical XLR/TRS input, meaning that you won’t hear any audio coming from microphones or instruments plugged into that channel.

Pro Tip

To get the cleanest signal when you record, it is recommended that you set the gain on your camera as low as possible, then use the gain control on the Wireless GO II to boost your signal if required. Cameras generally have poor-quality, noisy preamps that are quite sensitive, so it’s best to not rely on them to achieve good recording levels.

Nested Recordings

If a recording runs over 30 minutes, or if it includes any manually placed markers (see below), it will have a dropdown arrow beside the filename. Clicking this arrow shows you each 30-minute segment as its own ‘chapter’ and also displays any markers you’ve manually placed in your recording, allowing you to quickly navigate to, and select sections of your larger file.

Marker Drops

The waveform will display any marker drops in the recording. These signify dropouts (red markers), dropout regions (red sections) and user markers that you have manually dropped (green markers). This is useful for pinpointing exactly what section of audio you need to export.

  • Dropouts: If the quality of the wireless signal between a transmitter and the receiver falls below the acceptable range during recording, a marker will be automatically dropped into the internal recording to signify a signal dropout. These are displayed as red flags.
  • Dropout Regions: If several dropouts occur within 10 seconds of each other, this will be displayed as a dropout region rather than multiple marker lines clumped together.
  • User Markers: You can manually drop a marker in your recording at any time via the receiver or transmitters. This feature can be enabled in RØDE Central by toggling the power ('Ø’) button mode to 'Marker' (see below). User markers are displayed as green flags in RØDE Central. In addition to appearing in the waveform, user markers are indexed in a drop-down menu under each recording. Click a marker to jump to that section of the recording.
  • 'Jump-to Marker' Buttons: Navigating to markers in a recording is easy using the ‘Jump-to Marker’ buttons, which are located next to the play button under the waveform. Simply select what type of marker you want to navigate to (dropouts or user markers), then click the buttons to jump to those markers.

Optimising and Exporting Your Recordings

When a recording is selected in RØDE Central, an ‘Export’ button will appear. Clicking the 'Export' button will give you access to a drop-down menu of export options for optimising your audio, including:

  • File name
  • File type (WAV/MP3)
  • Bit rate
  • Sample rate

Find out more about the optimisation and export options that RØDE Central offers.

Batch Export and Export Selection

In addition to being able to export individual recordings, you can export multiple files simultaneously by checking the box next to any recording and clicking ‘Export Selection.’

You can also export a specific section of a recording by right-clicking and dragging the selection tool anywhere on the waveform to highlight the region you need, then clicking ‘Export Selection’. You can also do this in the mini-nav bar.

Deleting Your Recordings

When storage in the transmitter is full, new recordings will begin overwriting the oldest recordings. After a recording session, it’s a good idea to export all of your audio then delete the files from the Wireless GO II to ensure you don’t lose any audio you haven’t saved.

Clicking the transmitter settings cog in RØDE Central will allow you to see how much storage space you have left and mass delete all recordings on the transmitter.

Pro Tip

You can also create your own presets by selecting ‘Custom’ from the list of manufacturers. Here, you’ll be able to give your preset a label (that will show up on your Wireless GO II receiver display), set its gain level, and give it a description for easy selection within RØDE Central.

Pro Tip

To connect your Wireless GO II to your Lightning-equipped iOS device, you must use a Lightning to USB-C cable like the RØDE SC15 or SC19.

To connect your Wireless GO II to your Android device (or iPad Pro), you must use a USB-C to USB-C cable like the RØDE SC16 or SC17.
