Tascam has introduced the Mixcast 4 Podcast Station for podcast creation, live streaming, event production and voiceovers.

The Mixcast 4 can mix and record mic inputs, internal sounds and music via its trigger pads, as well as accepting external audio input from a smartphone or PC. The unit has an internal 14-track recorder that records directly to an SD card.

Tascam Mixcast 4 Podcast Station Mixcast 4 incorporates four TRS/XLR combo jack mic inputs and four individual headphone outputs to allow as many as four people to interact with each another using the auto-mixing function. Combined with the included 5-inch colour touchscreen that provides quick and intuitive access to desired menu control settings, the system enables podcasters to focus on their content without being distracted by complex operational tasks.

Unique to the Mixcast 4 is the included original Tascam Podcast Editor software, which offers straightforward and practical editing of audio content, track import from Mixcast 4, as well as configuration and assignment of sound effects and background music to the unit’s sound pads. The software fully integrates with Mixcast 4 and offers intuitive graphics and easy operation that help users with production work, eliminating the need for experience with DAW software. No special driver is needed when used directly with Mixcast 4 and the software supports Windows, Mac OS, and iOS. Android OS will be supported in a future update.

The Mixcast 4 has eight customisable sound pads that are eight banks deep. In addition to preset sound effects, users can assign new sounds or even pre-recorded mic sounds that have been recorded on the unit. The Mixcast 4 sound pads also allow for easy and real-time voice effects such as voice transformation, reverb, and more to make live-streams and recordings even more interesting and fun.

Adding flexibility, the Mixcast 4 offers several important functions, including a 14-input/2-output USB audio interface for direct multitrack recording to a computer or other device, and support for a Bluetooth connection that allows recording phone calls or playing background music from paired smartphones or tablets.

In addition, the Tascam Mixcast 4 offers stereo line inputs that are selectable between quarter-inch TRS and 3.5mm TRRS to mix and record phone conversations or input other sound sources like musical instruments. There is also PC connectivity that enables the unit to import sounds from a computer. Other outputs include a top panel 3.5mm TRRS headphone out that can mirror the output of headphone 1, stereo quarter-inch TRS main monitor outputs and a 3.5mm stereo line out.
