Roland GO:MIXER Pro Smartphone Audio Mixer overview from GAK
The GO:MIXER from Roland is a compact and portable audio mixer designed specifically for smartphones. The GO:MIXER gives you the ability to easily capture, record and mix audio and video simultaneously whilst performing. The GO:MIXER produces crystal clear stereo recordings and allows the connection of mics, instruments and media players, adjusting the mix and blending inputs seamlessly whilst you shoot video. The Roland GO:MIXER is a recording solution for anyone looking to capture high-quality audio for online video content and promotional purposes, as well as small live performances and practise within a group.
With the GO:MIXER gives you the ability to connect and mix up to nine separate audio sources at any given time, including guitar/bass, a vast range of line-level gear and now thanks to the addition of XLR with 48V+ phantom power, a wide range of powerful studio-grade microphones. Each main input has independent volume control and combined with a headphone output with level control, you can shape the perfect mix right there. You can also listen to backing audio from your smartphone via the headphone connection of the mixer, with a separate loopback panel switch that gives you backing track recording control. Furthermore, the GO:MIXER also has a 'Centre Cancel' function that allows you to reduce the volume of your main vocal track.
The GO:MIXER is ready to use right out the box, drawing power either via smartphone or by four AAA-Size batteries (Needed in order to utilise phantom power). The unit itself is very lightweight and will easily fit inside a small bag or rucksack for portability. The mixer can be used with a range of DAW's as an audio interface, allowing you to connect a range of instruments and mics and construct your music with ease. Additionally, the GO:MIXER Pro can also be used as a portable mixer for small events and performances, simply add a portable speaker and the GO:MIXER Pro acts as the hub for you and others to perform together.
