First look at the Rode Soundfield NT-SF1

Rode has announced the Soundfield NT-SF1 Ambisonic mic. The Soundfield NT-SF1 will allow users to capture multitrack A-format recordings. We got our first look at it today at NAB 2018.


As the name would suggest, Ambisonic means that the microphone captures the sound from all directions and allows you to then manipulate it in post. These mics could be very useful for those doing VR work.



Featuring four of RØDE’s all-new, ultra-quiet ½-inch TF45C capsules in tetrahedral array, the NT-SF1 produces “natural, transparent four channel A-format recordings” which can be transformed and manipulated in B-Format, courtesy of the soon-to-be-released SoundField by RØDE plugin.

Pricing and availability

Rode has said the NT-SF1 will be released in the next three months for $999 USD.
