Los Angeles, CA (July 18, 2018)—Focusing on social media content creators, Roland has introduced the Go:Mixer Pro audio mixer and Virtual Stage Camera app, an integrated hardware and app solution for creating content with a smartphone.
The Go:Mixer Pro offers multi-channel mixing, sound monitoring, and more, allowing creators to connect and mix up to nine audio sources at once, including powered microphones, guitar/bass, and line-level gear like keyboards and drum machines.
The unit sports dedicated controls for volume adjustment, and the resulting stereo digital audio output is sent to the user’s smartphone for capturing in a video or audio app. Go:Mixer Pro can be powered by the smartphone connection or via four AAA-size batteries to conserve the mobile device’s battery.
A headphones output with level control is also provided for monitoring the mix and listening to backing audio from the smartphone while performing. If desired, the user can route this backing audio to the capture app along with the live audio inputs via a dedicated Loop Back panel switch. A Center Cancel function is available as well, enabling users to create karaoke-style tracks on the fly. And when it’s not being used to capture content on a mobile device, Go:Mixer Pro doubles as a standalone battery-powered mixer for practice and on-the-go performing.
The free Virtual Stage Camera App is teamed with Go:Mixer Pro, and can remove the background from a performance video in real time and replaces it with visual material stored on the smartphone. Virtual Stage Camera can also produce a blue/green screen background in a video for later manipulation in a video-editing app like Apple’s iMovie.
Go:Mixer Pro also works with Roland’s 4XCamera, a free video app that creates split-screen videos. Virtual Stage Camera and 4XCamera are compatible with iOS mobile devices from Apple and are available as free downloads from the App Store.
