Audio-Technica has launched a USB audio mixer for streaming and similar applications. It is the AT-UMX3, retailing for $149 and highlighted for its simplicity of operation.

“This all-in-one interface is equipped with one XLR / 1/4-inch microphone input, two line inputs for guitar and keyboard, and a headphone jack for monitoring,” the company said in its announcement.

“The AT-UMX3’s loopback function allows users to mix mic and instrument audio with sound from their computer into a single stream and be confident their audience will hear the same mix. When loopback is turned on, it is possible to play background music while streaming or to stream game sounds and voices at the same time.”

Features include a microphone mute function and another function to mute mic audio only in the mix sent to connected headphones.

The A/D converter provides resolution up to 24-bit/192 kHz. A-T says the mixer has a noise-resistant design to prevent pickup of unwanted electronic noise from smartphones, Wi-Fi routers and other sources.

Additional features include Neutrik XLR/6.3 mm (1/4-inch) combo microphone jack, 48 V phantom power supply, a Hi-Z input jack for an electric guitar and a stereo input for a keyboard. The system is compatible with Windows, macOS, iOS, iPadOS and Android OS as well as livestreaming apps and online chat apps.

The mixer comes with a USB cable (USB Type-C/USB Type-A) and a USB conversion adapter (USB Type-A/USB Type-C). It connects to a computer or mobile device with no special driver installation.
