Digital Brain Instruments has introduced BCast Mixer, a dedicated standalone software mixer developed for events broadcasting, including conferences, meetings, speeches, podcasting or radio.
BCast Mixer allows managing any small or medium broadcasting event using only your computer, soundcard, optional MIDI controller and your favourite audio plug-ins, instead of a hardware audio mixer. It includes an auto-mic processing mode to avoid feedback and background noise coming from open microphones which are not in use.
Custom versions are available under request.
