RODE Microphones has just released the much-awaited firmware update v2.1 for their RODECaster Pro. Firmware 2.1 is a public beta release, meaning depending on user feedback RODE may still make some tweaks. 

The latest firmware comes packed with new features including more granular control over audio processing and effects. This gives users the ability to adjust noise-gate, de-esser, high-pass filter and other parameters.

The RODECaster Pro companion app has also been updated. Other new features include improved home screen audio metering, sound pad overdubbing, and a new reverb algorithm. 

Check out the full details of firmware v2.1 below.
