Roland has announced the Go:Mixer Pro smartphone audio mixer and Virtual Stage Camera app for content creators who share videos on YouTube and other social media platforms.

Roland Go:Mixer ProGo:Mixer Pro and Virtual Stage Camera are an integrated hardware and app pairing for the creation of high-quality video content using a smartphone. It will connect and mix up to nine audio sources, including powered microphones, guitar/bass and line-level gear. Dedicated controls provide volume adjustment, and the resulting stereo digital audio output is sent to the user’s smartphone for capturing in a video or audio app.

Ready to use out of the box, Go:Mixer Pro can be powered by the smartphone connection or via four AAA-size batteries to conserve the mobile device’s battery.

A headphone output with level control is also provided for monitoring the mix and listening to backing audio from the smartphone while performing. This can be routed to the capture app along with the live audio inputs via a dedicated Loop Back panel switch. A Center Cancel function is available as well, enabling karaoke-style tracks to be created on the fly. When it’s not used to capture content on a mobile device, Go:Mixer Pro doubles as a standalone battery-powered mixer for practice and on-the-go performing.

The new Virtual Stage Camera App removes the background from a performance video in real time, and replaces it with movie footage or stills stored on the smartphone. This enables a creator appear as if they’re performing in any location. Virtual Stage Camera can also instantly produce a blue/green screen background in a video for later manipulation in a video-editing app such as Apple’s iMovie.

Go:Mixer Pro also works with Roland’s 4XCamera, a free video app that makes it easy to create split-screen music performance videos. Projects can be shared online among 4XCamera users, enabling collaborations with other musicians in any location.

Virtual Stage Camera and 4XCamera are compatible with iOS mobile devices from Apple and are available as free downloads from the App Store. Extended functionality is available in each app by plugging in a Go:Mixer Pro or making an in-app purchase.
