RODE AI-MICRO Ultracompact 2x2 USB Type-C Audio Interface Up to 24-Bit / 48 kHz Resolution, Bus Powered / Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, Zero-Latency Monitoring, 1 Headphone Output

Swiftly record two-person interviews, podcasts, and vlogs straight to your smartphone, tablet, or computer with the RODE AI-Micro ultracompact audio interface and your trusty 3.5mm equipped microphones. Pocket friendly and bus powered, the AI-Micro is perfect for keeping your setup small and simple while maintaining quality, and enjoying convenient optimization and expanded functionality through Rode's suite of popular apps.
The interface's two mic inputs are auto-sensing jacks, allowing them to accept signal from a broad range of TRS/TRRS microphones without needing additional adapters. Monitor the live signal or playback via the built-in, zero-latency headphone port, and connect to virtually any mobile device or computer with the supplied USB Type-C, USB Type-A, and Lightning cables.
Record Two Mics at Once
With two mini-jack mic inputs and a USB Type-C output, the AI-Micro lets you simultaneously record two mics to your computer or mobile device at up to 24-bit / 48 kHz digital resolution. It's ideal for interviews, podcasts, live streaming, and more. Alternatively, input 1 can be configured as a single stereo TRS input for use with stereo microphones.
Auto-Sensing Inputs
The two 3.5mm inputs are auto sensing and detect whether a TRS or TRRS microphone is connected, automatically switching to accommodate a wide variety of separately available mics such as the SmartLav+, Lavalier GO, RODELink Lav, any VideoMic with 3.5mm outputs, and more.
Built-In Headphone Output
The AI-Micro also features a high-quality 3.5mm headphone output for zero-latency audio monitoring and playback.
Universal Connectivity
Thanks to the supplied cables, the AI-Micro can connect seamlessly to USB Type-A, USB Type-C, and Lightning devices. Use it with your Mac/Windows computer, iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone/tablet.
App Support
It is compatible with the Rode app suite including Rode Central, Rode Connect, and Rode Reporter, for accessing expanded features and functionality, on-the-go configuration, and broadcast-quality recording on any device.

Easily held in the palm of your hand or tucked away in your pocket, the AI-Micro boasts an exceptionally small footprint. Plus, it is bus powered, so you never have to worry about swapping batteries or recharging it.

As an international traveller you are entitled to bring a certain amount/value of goods that are free of Customs duty and exempt Goods and Services tax (GST) into New Zealand. This is called your duty free allowance and personal goods concession. It is important to review these for any purchases you make on The Mall.

Your duty free allowance entitles you to bring into New Zealand the following quantities of alcohol products free of customs duty and GST provided you are over 17 years of age. You do need to be 18 years or over to purchase. 

  • Up to six bottles (4.5 litres) of wine, champagne, port or sherry or
  • Up to twelve cans (4.5 litres) of beer
  • And three bottles (or other containers) each containing not more than 1125ml of spirits, liqueur, or other spirituous beverages

Goods other than alcohol and tobacco, whether purchased overseas or purchased duty free in New Zealand, that have a combined total value not exceeding NZ$700 may also be brought as part of your personal goods concession. 

When travelling overseas there are legal limits on the amount of duty free alcohol and other goods you can take with you. These amounts will vary depending on the country you are flying into. We always recommend you check the latest limits and exemptions.

Your order can be picked up at an Auckland Airport Collection Point. There is one in departures and one at arrivals in the international terminal. Alternatively, if you are arriving between 11pm and 6am you will be able to collect your order from our lockers. See map
