So I was watching a video on the Rode site of an interview with Tony Faulkner about a recording he was about to do in Sydney using exclusively Rode mics. These included two experimental valve omnis with variable pickup pattern according to frequency and some prototype revisions to the venerable NT5.
Talking about the revised NT5s, TF also pointed out that these incorporate a new connector being developed by Neutrik.
Still from the video here:
Pop over to the Rode website to see the interview video and other linked stuff...
