Roland Announces New Addition to Compact Audio Mixer Family; lots of I/O in pocket-sized package for mobile productions
Roland announces the GO:MIXER PRO-X, the latest member of the popular GO:MIXER family of audio mixers for smartphones and tablets. Ultra-compact with plenty of I/O, GO:MIXER products allow mobile content creators to capture multiple sound sources in high quality for music videos, livestreams, podcasts and more. Compared with the previous GO:MIXER PRO model, GO:MIXER PRO-X offers expanded support for Android and iOS mobile devices, a guitar/bass input pad switch, and the ability to use a headset mic or the inline mic on smartphone earbuds as a sound source.
Today’s smartphones and tablets record great video, but their built-in microphones simply can’t deliver the sound quality needed to create polished productions that grab viewers and keep them engaged. GO:MIXER PRO-X is hence the ideal companion for mobile content creation, combining multichannel mixing, sound monitoring and more in an affordable, palm-sized hardware device that goes everywhere.
Roland stipulates the GO:MIXER PRO-X supports the audio needs of all types of creators, whether working alone or with a group. Users can connect and mix up to seven audio sources, including a professional XLR microphone, guitar or bass, a stereo instrument like a keyboard or drum machine and two stereo line-level devices. The headphone jack supports an additional mic feed, and the Loop Back function allows music and other audio from a connected mobile device to be mixed in as well. A newly added pad switch for the dedicated guitar/bass input lets users attenuate the signal, if needed, for instruments with active pickups.
GO:MIXER PRO-X is equipped with both USB Micro-B and four-pole TRRS analog jacks, providing plug-and-play operation with most iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Three different cable types are included for connecting to Lightning, USB-C, and four-pole TRRS jacks on mobile devices. GO:MIXER PRO-X can be powered with four AAA-size batteries or through the device connection when the USB Micro-B connector is used.
In addition to providing exceptional sound quality for videos and livestreams, GO:MIXER PRO-X excels as an audio interface for music apps like Roland’s own Zenbeats or GarageBand, and it also works great as a portable stand-alone mixer for practicing and performing.
