Capture and mix professional smartphone audio with the Roland Go:Mixer Pro-X

For musicians who enjoy live-streaming to social platforms, roadblocks can often come up along the way. Even in the modern age, professional and portable audio mixing solutions for smartphones tend to run few and far between. One can either spend lots of money on professional rigs that can eat away at valuable time leading up to the stream to setup, or get a cheap stream box that doesn’t deliver the quality needed. Now, Roland is here with yet another solution in its Go:Mixer Pro family. This time it introduced the Go:Mixer Pro-X — which adds even more features for creators to use during stream.

Roland Go:Mixer Pro-X Audio Mixer

Overall, the Pro-X model looks and operates very similarly to the ‘Pro,’ released in 2017. It supports up to seven audio inputs at the same time — including one combo XLR, a standalone 1/4″ jack, a stereo 1/4″ pair, as well as an additional 1/8″ pair. All of these connect seamlessly to the user’s smartphone using a USB-B connector. For additional support, Roland is conveniently including lightning, micro-usb, and usb-c connectors in the Go:Mixer Pro-X box. On the output side, the creator can plug in a 1/8″ headphone jack into the box as well for real-time monitoring, while using the series of five knobs to mix as needed.

While they aren’t many, there are some impressive features that set the Pro-X apart from its 2017 edition. These include a newly added guitar/bass pad for optional attenuation when necessary, as well as the ability for users to include a headset mic as an additional input. Roland’s Go:Mixer Pro-X is powered either directly from the attached smartphone, or off of four AAA batteries. This is an especially nice addition for those who wants to avoid draining their phone battery even more during stream. The Go:Mixer Pro-X will be available to ship this coming August at a super affordable price of $150.
