Talk about a really small mobile package for radio stations, Roland has beefed up its Go:Mixer Pro smartphone outboard audio mixer peripheral with features that a radio crew might find of use.
The battery-operable Go:Mixer Pro-X 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.
Up to seven audio sources can be used: XLR microphone (with 48 V phantom power), electric 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 a loop back function allows music and other audio from a connected mobile device to be mixed in as well.
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 cables ship with the mixer, providing connection to Lightning, USB-C, and four-pole TRRS jacks on mobile devices. Power is via four AAA-size batteries or through the device connection when the USB Micro-B connector is used.
The Go:Mixer Pro-X is expected to ship in August with a price of $149.99.
