The cardiod pattern is as the instruction manual dictates and there is no difference between 9v battery or 24/48v phantom power.

SOURCE: 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.

I have an rode nt1-a microphone, roland quad capture interface, but when im gonna record or put the input level i hear wind, i turn down the input volume all the way down, i still see the input signal


The Rode NT1A mic is a condenser mic and therefore it REQUIRES that "phantom" power be supplied by the mixer or amplifier. You will get only electronic "noise" if the mic is not receiving this power. Look up Phantom power to understand it. Essentially DC power is sent up the mic cable between the signal lines and the shield of the cable and is used by the electronics in the mic to amplify the signal from the condenser element.

Can I connect the Rode NT2 to sound mixer


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

I'm buying a Rode NT1A, it comes with a shock mount, pop filter, xlr cable etc. What else besides a USB converter cable to I need to have this mic work it's full potential on a PC?


Hi, what else do you do think you will need? I don't think you will need any other thing except that before you use the mic, the switch for the phantom power on the microphone is to be activated .Without the phantom being activated, the mic will not work.

It can only be activated with a mixer console that has a phantom activation on it. After connecting the mic to the mixer,activate the phantom power on the mixer and switch on the phantom power on the mic,and problem solved.

Note: Mic will not work if no phantom activated on the mixer.

That all you will need .

Thanks for using fixya....

I just brought the nt1-a and plugged it in to my cakewalk UA-25 EX and nothing ...No sound from the mic ...


  • Be sure Phantom power is on.
  • Check that other mics or sources work properly through the interface.
  • Check that the mic functions through another mixer/interface.

I plug my rode ntg-2 into the computer and record using audacity and the recording is extremely low in volume.


This mic needs phantom power to operate. Best bet, go and buy a USB mic pre, such as a M-Audio product.

This mic, I believe also runs on a battery, when phantom power is not available...so check the battery.

Or, simply, your record levels are set too low.

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

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


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.

Rode NT2-A


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).
