The latest addition to Roland's GO:MIXER series is here in the GO:MIXER PRO-X — now with even more great features! This compact 9-channel audio line mixer is perfect for the musician or content creator on the go, with enough inputs to please even a small ensemble. The GO:MIXER PRO-X pre-mixes multiple sources of audio (guitar, keyboard, backing tracks, microphone, and more) down to a stereo track that's instantly exportable to your favourite streaming media service. Here's Rodney McG with the full review.
The Roland GO:MIXER Pro-X is a compact one-stop unit for live streaming, mobile recording, practicing, and collaborative video and audio recording. The unit is based on using a smartphone as a single source for all video and audio recording, with the unit being the single interface. The GO:MIXER Pro-X offers multiple ins and outs, including mono and stereo options, as well as a phantom power option for using condenser mics for high-quality recordings on the go.
You can track multiple instruments at once or perform them in layers. Record each one at a time,e and then using Roland's app available on Android and iPhone to compile them into a multi-window simultaneous performance. You can also use this option if you have other artists in your collaboration that can send you their recordings to be compiled with your completed work. This can be accomplished inside the app quickly and is able to be streamed in a matter of minutes. You can combine and a number of different layouts and window options to get the best version of your multi-layered performance.
Simple, compact, and light, it would easily fit in a small personal bag, or the front pocket of a gig bag. For power, the GO:MIXER Pro-X can be powered by a battery loaded in at the top left-hand of the unit, or the entire unit as well as the phantom power can be powered from your smartphone.
The GO:MIXER Pro-X opens up a number of different on-the-go options aside from just streaming. Being able to demo songs with multiple instruments while on the road, keeping all your recordings inside your phone to be later dumped into your home studio for final processing and editing. You can also record and overdub instruments you're performing on while live-streaming simultaneously. Another option is to do small performances by playing into the unit while also having pre-recorded music to accompany yourself coming from an outside source into the inputs, or even played through your phone while simultaneously recording to it.
The GO:MIXER Pro-X has enough inputs to even record even a full ensemble at once with vocal mics, stereo in for other sources or keyboards, multiple guitars or bass, and a number of other possible simultaneous configurations.
Versatile, lightweight, compact, and feature-loaded, the go mixer Pro-X is a hard to beat package, especially at its low price point.
