Roland's GO:MIXER is one of those purpose-built tools that does one thing incredibly well: it lets you create better-quality recordings with your smartphone. It's small, portable and easier-to-use than a more comprehensive audio interface. Plus you can buy one for less than $100.
Performance VideosAnyone who's making YouTube music performance videos will immediately understand the benefits here. The GO:MIXER can handle five audio sources (including microphones, guitar, keyboard or even an MP3 player) and allow the user to get the perfect audio mix to go with their video.
The inputs and outputs are well-labeled. If you've got some experience with more complex recording gear, getting started will take no time at all. If you're a beginner, you'll figure it out quickly.
Karaoke VideosMost hit records have their lead vocals in the center of the mix for maximum impact. The GO:MIXER has a Center Cancel function that will eliminate or substantially reduce the lead vocal volume on most songs, allowing you to make a video where you're the lead singer on your favorite tunes. Check out the video below to see how that works.
The GO:MIXER offers a massive upgrade over the built-in recording capabilities of your smartphone and eliminates the need to sync a separately-recorded quality audio track with a video in post-production. If you're looking to make quick, real-time videos with great sound, this device solves the problem for you.
Other UsesThe box can also connect your desktop computer so it's useful for gamers who stream their games. If you're planning to make your fortune with How-To videos, you can get the soundtrack right.
The GO:MIXER comes with connection cables for both iOS and Android devices, so you can use it out of the box. It's powered by your smartphone, so there are no external power cables required.
There's room for the GO:MIXER in a guitar or keyboard case and it's plenty small enough to fit in your bag if you're planning to acquire an instrument once you've arrived at any overseas destination in the world. Since it's powered by your phone or computer, you never have to worry about power issues. It's the perfect device for anyone who's trying to use their music to stay in touch with loved ones back home.
