The new GO:Mixer Pro is a new audio interface with 9 in/2 out channels that has been specially designed for smartphones that allows you to deliver pro-quality audio to your videos!
The biggest problem with Synthesizer videos taken with the smartphone (iOS/Android) is the sound quality. You can record the greatest jam, only it does not sound good if you use the internal microphones. With the Go:Mixer, Roland introduced an interesting interface last year to improve this. Now, Roland goes a step further and introduces a professional version that has more inputs (9 in total).
New in the Pro version compared to the standard version is an improved Mic jack input with phantom power and a new plug in mic jack (miniature phone type (supports plug-in power)). Further, the GO:Mixer Pro is now powered by USB and batteries. This gives you the option to use it even more in a portable setup. Since the interface has been enlarged, it now also has a compartment where the smartphone/tablet can be set up.
The GO:Mixer Pro is a clever audio interface in my opinion that fit perfectly in our social media world of 2018. In short: make music everywhere, benefit from the new mobile technologies (smartphone, cameras…) without to renounce on good audio quality.
Use Pro-Quality Sound to Get More Followers, More Views, and Higher Engagement
Whether you’re a musician, podcaster or live streamer, high-quality audio can make or break your productions. And although your smartphone’s built-in microphones are fine for everyday use, to impress your listeners you’ll need superior quality and more control over your audio. Roland’s GO:MIXER PRO is the easiest way for content creators to connect and mix up to nine audio inputs, including pro-quality powered microphones, guitar/bass and line-level gear.
Just plug in, set the volume levels and go; the resulting stereo audio output is sent straight to your smartphone, ready for uploading and sharing. And if you’d like to make your videos stand out, GO:MIXER PRO works with Roland’s unique smartphone apps including 4XCAMERA or Virtual Stage Camera. GO:MIXER PRO is the ideal solution for adding professional sound to your social media videos or live streaming, helping you get more followers, more views, and higher engagement.
Great Music Is Built On Great Sound
If you’ve ever been disappointed with the audio when recording your own music, GO:MIXER PRO delivers an ultra-clean stereo signal without the background noise that can ruin a performance. If you play music with others, you can simultaneously capture three different instruments through dedicated inputs, for example keyboards, guitar/bass and vocals, and adjust their volume levels—perfect for recording demos or rehearsals.
Superior Vocals Give Your Videos a Professional Edge
If you’re a vocalist, GO:MIXER PRO makes it easy to create performance videos while singing along with your favorite songs on the smartphone. The Center Cancel function reduces the volume of the main vocal in any song you play back*—making room for your own vocal to take center stage. You can even connect a pro-grade electret condenser microphone** for studio-quality vocal recordings.
Livestream Your Performance to the World
Thanks to smartphones and social media, livestreaming has become incredibly popular—and easy to get into. But if your broadcast involves musical instruments, or you simply need high-quality sound, then you quickly run into the limitations of your smartphone’s built-in microphone. GO:MIXER PRO has multiple inputs for a well-balanced, great sounding mix, and its battery operation takes the strain from your smartphone, so you can livestream for longer. Depending on conditions, GO:MIXER PRO can run for over four hours on just four AAA batteries.
The Perfect Partner for Producing 4-Split Screen Music Video with 4XCAMERA App
Roland’s 4XCAMERA app combines up to four separate performances into a single split-screen video—perfect for showcasing your multi-instrumental jamming skills. Available for iOS and Android, the free version of 4XCAMERA can capture and combine two performances, for a two-screen video. GO:MIXER PRO owners can use the upgraded version of 4XCAMERA, letting you shoot performance videos made up of four screens (2×2), with each screen containing a separate vocal or instrument take.
Shoot Your Video and Tour the World with Virtual Stage Camera App
Roland’s Virtual Stage Camera is a free iOS app that lets you replace the background of your video—with any movie footage or stills from your smartphone in real-time while shooting—maybe you’ll jam with your favorite band or be the first person to play a gig in space. The Virtual Stage Camera app enables you to produce a blue or green background video easily in real-time, which lets you replace the original background with a new, more exciting one. Once the blue/green screen video is produced, transfer the file to any editing software with superimposing capability, such as Apple iMovie, and take your production to the next level.
Live Performance Made Simple Whether At Home, In a Small Venue, Or Outdoors
GO:MIXER PRO works as a mobile audio mixer for small gigs or parties, thanks to its multiple inputs, battery operation, and compact size. The only other things needed for a go-anywhere party rig are a portable amp and some instruments. Then add some people and start jamming with keyboards, bass/guitar, and vocals…or just sing along with your favorite songs from your smartphone.
Produce Original Music on Your Smartphone or Tablet
If you compose or produce original songs using a smartphone or tablet, GO:MIXER PRO is an ideal partner. When used with music production apps like Apple Garage Band, you can record your vocal parts while listening to the backing track on your device. If you switch the Loopback function off, only your vocal part will be recorded, with the backing audio on your device acting as your guide track.
