Roland announces GO:MIXER and Rubix Audio Interfaces for Mac, PC, iOS and Android

Roland

At CES in Las Vegas, Roland has introduced GO:MIXER, a compact audio mixer for smartphone video production, and announced Rubix, a new line of audio interfaces for Mac, PC, and iPad.

Compatible with iOS and Android smartphones, GO:MIXER connects digitally via an included cable, providing clear stereo sound that's a marked upgrade over using the phone's built-in mono mic or analog line input. With multiple inputs available, users can connect a mic, musical instruments, and media players, and mix them all together live while they shoot.

With the great video quality of today's smartphones, capturing music performances and other types of content has never been easier. However, recording a high-quality audio soundtrack along with a video has typically required complicated external gear and time-consuming editing in post-production. GO:MIXER greatly simplifies the production process, enabling users to capture audio directly to a smartphone video in real time.

Offering plug-and-play convenience, GO:MIXER is ready to use out of the box. It's powered by the smartphone connection, so no batteries are required. And with a compact size that measures just 3.75 inches (95 mm) square and 1.1 inches (28 mm) tall, GO:MIXER is perfect 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.

One of GO:MIXER's line-level inputs offers a selectable Center Cancel function, which reduces the volume of the main vocal in a music track that's playing through the input. This is a great feature for singers, allowing them to create karaoke-style tracks on the fly.

The GO:MIXER compact audio mixer for smartphones has a US Street price of $99.

Roland has also announced Rubix, a new line of audio interfaces for Mac, PC, and iPad. Rubix is designed to offer a perfectly balanced combination of high-fidelity sound, solid build quality, compact size, affordable price, and crucial features for today's musicians and producers.

The new audio interface line consists of the Rubix 22, 24 and 44. Each multi-platform interface is carefully engineered to have extremely low noise from input to output. Clean, detailed sound is the top priority, with transparent, low noise mic preamps and support for audio resolutions up to 24-bit/192kHz. Highly visible indicators clearly show the presence of a good signal or an overloading input, even from a distance. Extensive shielding and ground lifts help ensure clean, quiet operation in a variety of venues, and the compact metal construction means Rubix can provide studio-grade performance just about anywhere.

The range:

  • Rubix 22 is a 2-in/2-out model with dual mic preamps. When coupled with an iPad, it creates a highly portable recording or performance rig.
  • Rubix 24 adds two extra outputs and a hardware compressor/limiter for controlling highly dynamic sources.
  • Rubix 44 adds two additional mic preamps for a total of 4 inputs and 4 outputs.
