Q.
Do I need to charge the VideoMic GO II?
A.
The VideoMic GO II runs off plug-in power supplied by the connected device and does not contain an internal battery, so it does not need to be charged.
A.

Most definitely! The VideoMic GO II features a USB-C audio output that allows it to be connected to computers and mobile devices and used as a fully featured USB microphone. When used in USB mode, the 3.5mm TRS output can be used to connect headphones for audio monitoring and playback.

Additional cables are required for connecting the VideoMic GO II to computers and mobile devices via USB, such as the RØDE SC16, SC17 or SC18 for devices with a USB-C input, or RØDE SC15, SC19 for iOS devices with a Lightning port (note: to use the VideoMic GO II with an iOS device, you must use an Apple-certified 'Lightning Accessory Cable' like the SC15 or SC19).

A.
It is important to understand there are two different types of USB to Lightning cables specified by Apple. One is a charging / sync cable. This is the one that is supplied with your phone. The other is a ‘Lightning Accessory Cable’. This is a different type of cable that is used to attach accessories (such as microphones) to your device. You can use any Apple-certified Lightning Accessory Cable to connect the VideoMic Go II to your device; it does not have to be from RØDE. Just check carefully to ensure it is a certified ‘Lightning Accessory Cable’. A regular charging / sync cable will not work, as it is a different type of cable.
A.
The pad function only operates when using the VideoMic GO II in USB mode. When using the 3.5mm analog output, you should use the gain control on your camera to ensure the recording level is not too high.
A.

Yes. If you are using the 3.5mm output, you can use any high-quality 3.5mm extension cable (but be aware that the longer the cable, the higher likelihood of interference from other electrical devices). We suggest using the RØDE VC1 or SC8 when mounting the VideoMic GO II on a boompole. You can also use the Wireless GO for a wireless solution.

If you are using the USB output, be aware that very long USB cables or USB cable extenders can be problematic, and their performance may depend on the recording device being used. Use a high-quality USB extender, ideally an ‘active’ one, for best performance. Note: RØDE cannot warrant the performance of the microphone when used with third-party cables.

A.
Yes, the VideoMic GO II is fully compatible with RØDE Connect, allowing you to connect up to four of the microphones to a computer, with complete control over the input level and audio processing.
A.

The foam windshield is designed to mitigate moderate wind noise and plosives. You should also use it if the microphone is being moved (for example, on a handheld camera or boom arm), or if you are speaking directly into it. If it is mounted on a static camera in an indoor environment, you can remove it. The windshield features a high-quality open-cell design that is very acoustically transparent, so will not noticeably affect the performance of the microphone.

If you are using the microphone outdoors in a high-wind environment, we recommend using the WS12 furry windshield.

A.
Yes, you can do this within RØDE Central on PC or Mac computers, or by using RØDE Central Mobile or RØDE Reporter on iOS or Android devices. Please note that when the VideoMic GO II is being used with RØDE Connect, direct monitoring will always be on.
A.

When using the 3.5mm analog output, the peaks will depend on the gain setting in your camera, so you should use the audio meters on your device to monitor for peaks.

In USB mode, the VideoMic Go II utilises an internal preamp and A/D, so the LED will alert you to any loud peaks that may clip the input.

A.
The sliding rail is particularly useful for making sure the VideoMic GO II doesn’t protrude within the frame when using a very wide/ultra-wide lens and also allows it to be pushed forward in case it is blocking the viewfinder of a camera.
A.
Yes, on the bottom of the VideoMic GO II’s cold shoe mount there is a 3/8” screw thread, allowing it to be mounted to boom arms such as the RØDE PSA1 and PSA1+, boompoles, tripods such as the Tripod 2, and microphone stands. You may need a thread adaptor to attach it to these accessories (we recommend the RØDE Thread Adaptor kit).
A.

If you have an iPhone or iPad with a Lightning input, you will need a Lightning Accessory Cable (USB-C to Lightning) like the RØDE SC15 or SC19 (note: standard USB-C to Lightning cables will not work – you must use an Apple-certified ‘Lightning Accessory Cable’).

If you have a device with a USB-C input, such as an Android smartphone or iPad Pro, you will need a USB-C to USB-C cable like the RØDE SC16 or SC17.

You can also plug your VideoMic GO II into your smartphone or tablet using the 3.5mm output with the RØDE SC7 cable (available separately). Using the USB-C output gives you access to a host of features including headphone monitoring and access to advanced features using RØDE Central, so we highly recommend this option if possible

A.

When being used with a camera, the VideoMic GO II is designed to be a simple plug-and-go microphone with no controls or switches ensuring minimal fuss. You can use the manual gain control on your camera to adjust the input level if required.

When being used in USB mode, the input level and headphone volume can be adjusted from the computer or mobile device it’s connected to or with RØDE Central or RØDE Connect (computers), RØDE Central Mobile or RØDE Reporter (mobile devices). These apps can also be used to activate the high-pass filter, high-frequency boost, pad and other audio processing (RØDE Connect only).

A.
Many cameras have Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and other audio processing enabled by default. They can cause jumps in audio levels and other artefacts. These are not needed when using a high-quality microphone such as the VideoMic GO II. Ensure they are turned off, and the audio gain is set to ‘manual’ in your camera settings. Then adjust the gain so the audio meter is about 2/3 of the way across for the sound you are recording. For more details on setting the gain on your camera, check out this blog.
