GO:MIXER Audio Mixer for Smartphones: Introduced to powerful buzz and receiving three “Best of CES” awards at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Roland’s GO:MIXER is a compact audio mixer for smartphone video production. Compatible with iOS and Androids, GO:MIXER connects digitally via an included cable, providing clear stereo sound that is a marked upgrade over using the phone’s built-in mono mic or analog line input. Its multiple inputs allow the user to connect a mic, instruments, media players and gaming consoles and mix them all together live during a shoot. Ultra-portable and easy to use, GO:MIXER is the ideal solution for adding a pro sound touch to social media videos. GO:MIXER enables users to capture audio directly to a smartphone video in real time.

GO:MIXER Specs: Ready to use out of the box, GO:MIXER is powered by the smartphone connection and measures 3.75 inches square and 1.1 inches tall—an ideal size for desktop and mobile use. GO:MIXER supports connecting up to five sources at once via inputs for a vocal mic, guitar/bass, stereo keyboard and two stereo line-level devices (such as music players, drum machines, etc.). Front-panel knobs provide hands-on mixing for the mic and instruments. There’s also a stereo output jack for monitoring the sound via headphones or an external amplification system, plus a dedicated panel knob for adjusting the monitor level.
