NTG -1
I want to thank you for your purchase of a
NTG-1.
Please take the time to read this manual as it
contains information that will help you achieve the
best results from your microphone, as well as help
you get many years of reliable service from your
investment.
The design brief for this microphone was to build
a shotgun that could be used in professional video,
film and live stage applications where low noise,
a wide frequency response and tightly controlled
polar patterns are vital. I am sure that once you
have used your new microphone, you will agree we
achieved our aim!
Like all
microphones the NTG-1 is
manufactured using the finest surface mount
electronic components available, and has a body
machined of high grade aluminium which is finished
in hard wearing epoxy paint. The heart of any
microphone is the capsule, and with the NTG-1, we
have designed and incorporated what we believe to
be one of the best transducers in its class.
The NTG-1 has many uses. It can be mounted on
video cameras using either the on-board camera
mic mounts or the optional
shock mount.
The NTG-1 is also suitable as a boom mounted mic
for film and video use where it is desirable to get
closer to the sound source yet still be out of the
shot. Another area where the NTG-1 excels is in a
live sound situation, and the NTG-1 is perfect for
plays, as well as a cymbal overhead mic or can be
used to great effect as a ‘crowd mic’ when doing a
live band recording.
The NTG-1 comes complete with a heavy duty
microphone holder and a wind cover for ‘moderate’
outdoor applications.
has also designed
a series of products which include ‘furry’ wind
socks (for high wind applications), pistol grips
and boom poles as well as cables and adaptors.

Power Your NTG-1
NTG-1 Controls
1) The NTG-1 requires power to operate.
This is supplied via 48V phantom supply
which is available from most professional
video cameras or mixing consoles.
Mounting your NTG-1
2) The NTG-1 comes complete with a heavy
duty stand mic holder as shown in figures
1 - 3.
4) Now that you have the NTG-1 securely
fastened to your camera or mic stand,
and the audio output lead connected, you
are ready to use the mic.
The NTG-1 also incorporates a switchable
high pass filter set at 80 Hz. This is
activated by the recessed switch shown in
fig.(6 & 7).
High Pass Filter
- (HPF)
Flat Response
fig. 6 - NTG-1 Controls
fig. 1
fig. 2
Install as shown by pushing the mic in on
an angle coming from the back. You will
notice the holder is quite firm, and this
is intentional so that the the NTG-1 will
not come out easily, which could damage
the mic.
Make sure you do not
block the slots on the
side of the mic (Fig 3)
as blocking these will
affect the sound quality
and the polar pattern
(directional qualities).
fig. 7 - HPF Control
A small screwdriver or even a pen will
work for this application. Use the high
pass filter when you wish to remove
low frequency noise that is not part of
your intended sound source. Remember
however the tonal characteristics will be
affected by this, so it is important that
you listen to the sound with and without
the HPF in circuit before deciding if it is
appropiate for the source.
NTG-1 Windshield
fig. 3
Connecting your XLR cable
3) The NTG-1 offers a balanced microphone
level output and is wired Pin 1 earth,
Pin2 + and Pin3 -. Make sure you use a
high quality low loss cable that is as short
as practical to avoid losses and distortion
(see Fig 4 and Fig 5).
fig. 4
fig. 5
5) The NTG-1 comes with a foam windshield.
The windshield should be used even in
the slightest breeze as this can cause
sound interference. When using the mic
outside in heavy winds you may need to
purchase a more specialised wind shield.
RODE has a full line of accessories such as
windshields, boom poles, cable extenders
and pistol grips which will be available in
early 2005.

6) While it may sound like a contradiction,
shotgun mics are not designed for long
distance pick up. I have heard people
ask, “How far away can this mic pickup
sound?”. Of course you can boost
the gain level on your camera and
you will hear more defined sounds
over a longer distance than with
conventional microphones.
Long distance pick up microphones
include parabolic reflector systems and
more recently adaptive arrays using
multiple capsules and Digital Signal
Processing (DSP) technologies.
Shotgun microphones have a narrow
pick-up angle or polar response, and
so can be used to great effect with
cameras for news gathering, weddings
or sporting events.
