RØDE’s AI-1 Audio Interface is packed with incredible technology to ensure recording on your computer is easy, versatile and sounds superb. The AI-1’s single input is a NeutrikTM Combo Jack, which takes both a 3-pole XLR (common to most microphones) and a quarter-inch jack common to most electric instruments like guitar, bass et al.

Layering tracks is as easy as plug in, set level and go. Not only does the AI-1 deliver crystal clear audio to your computer software, but headphones have never sounded sweeter thanks to the discrete studio-quality headphone output and level control.
