No. This is an analog microphone that requires no drivers. Check that another microphone works into the same input (and check that the phantom power supplied at the input meets the NT-2A specs).

Can I connect the Rode NT2 to sound mixer


Yes. You'll need to engage phantom power for it to function.

For a few months the recording level on my NT2 would be very quite and then correct its self, but it is now almost none existent. Can you help


This is usually caused by component failure, and it will require service. On the NT2, the capsule can also fail, causing this problem. Condenser Microphone Mod Service

It makes crackly noice like a bad cable connection...but there's no signal coming thru


This is most likely component failure. The capsule can also fail on the NT2. Either way, it will have to be professionally serviced. Condenser Microphone Mod Service

My nt2 started to cut out and fade out so I pluged an nt1 on the same cord and it works fine


Send it back to Rode and if its not caused by Misuse, should be covered under their 10 year warranty.

Hi The pop shield has come off on my nt2.Where


You can have a new one not necessarily Rode. I think its better to replace since you can have it for $15 that can be mounted directly to your mic stand. Hope it helps

When recording the signal starts out great but then gets very quiet, sometimes there's a high pitch frequency too. Any ideas? It's 2nd hand but has been working fine for over 3 years.


Your capsule is gone, sorry. I've owned 2 NT2s that I bought over 5 years ago. Eventually the capsule goes and that was what happened to mine: "started working-got quiet-unwanted noise"
The first time it happened Rode replaced my capsule for a $50 flat rate repair fee (capsules are $300..what a great co.)
However I recently contacted them about the second one and they no longer have replacement parts.
They did offer to give me a discount on a new mic if I sent the broken NT2 to them for parts.
It's too bad...I love those mics.

Hi, my NT2 has started having massive cuts in volume mid take and also it's generating a very high pitch frequency from time to time. Any ideas? Mike

Autimaticaly a clip sound occurs at regular interval


This is typical of component failure, and possibly capsule issues, as well. The mic requires professional service. Condenser Microphone Mod Service

Rode NT2 got Phantom!


Well... Rode NT2's are condenser mic's that require phantom power to work. So the phantom switch should be on. When you turn phantom power on you usually hear a bump sound (through the amplifier). In this case, nothing is broken.
Your picture is of a Rode Videomic (not an NT2) which is a stereo mic for video cameras. If you had some kind of stereo mini to (single) XLR adaptor, and put phantom power through it, the mic would probably be damaged. But maybe not... just try again without phantom power to see. a stereo mic won't work very well with the Mbox Mini because it only has one mic preamp.
