Roland has expanded its GO:MIXER range of audio mixers for smartphones and tablets with the addition of the new GO:MIXER PRO-X.
Compared with the previous GO:MIXER PRO model, the GO:MIXER PRO-X offers expanded support for Android and iOS devices. The new models brings 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.
The GO:MIXER PRO-X supports up to seven audio sources including a professional XLR microphone, guitar or bass, a stereo instrument like a keyboard or drum machine, and two stereo line-level devices.
The headphones jack supports an additional mic feed, and the Loop Back function allows music and other audio from a connected mobile device to be mixed in as well.
Equipped with both USB Micro-B and four-pole TRRS analog jacks, the new model will work with most iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. The GO:MIXER PRO-X can be powered with four AAA-size batteries or through the device when the USB Micro-B connector is used.
The GO:MIXER PRO-X can be used as a standalone smartphone mixer or as an audio interface for music apps like GarageBand.
The Roland GO:MIXER PRO-X is due to land in August with a price tag of $150.
Roland recently unveiled three new flagship V-Drums and VAD (Virtual Acoustic Design) kits which all feature its new TD-50X sound module.
The next-gen module is designed to deliver the most acoustic-like experience available in an electronic drum kit. It combines multi-layer samples recorded in world-class studios with sophisticated behaviour modelling techniques. Audio Media International
