Tascam has announced Version 1.20 firmware update for the Mixcast 4 Podcast Station for podcast creation, live streaming, event production and voiceover work.

Tascam Mixcast 4 Podcast StationWith its built-in Recorder/USB Audio Interface, Mixcast 4 offers a wealth of functionality for streamlined content creation, with the firmware update bringing ‘a significant boost’ to its feature set. V1.20 provides global voice effects for multiple mic inputs, enabling users to apply a global voice effect to all four mic inputs. As an example, the Mixcast 4’s pitch shifter can be applied to any or all four mic inputs for special effects. This can be useful for raising or lowering the timbre of one’s voice for a dramatic effect or to create a podcast featuring various character voices.

By popular request, v1.20 provides input gain control for the USB, Bluetooth and 3.5mm auxiliary input commonly used for accommodating outside calls or to serve as an additional input. This allows the USB Skype input audio level to be governed by the host controlling the Mixcast 4. Similarly, the input level of a caller connected via Bluetooth or the 3.5mm input can also be controlled.

As a means of preventing audio feedback, the new update also provides for automatic mute on monitor out when the Mixcast 4’s microphone inputs are active. This new feature will be greatly appreciated by users who use the Mixcast 4 with close-field monitors, as live microphones will now not be routed to the monitor outputs. This is particularly useful when using the Mixcast 4 and video conferencing.

Three additional enhancements complete the update. First, the audio level display is now indicated in dB as opposed to the green/red colour only indicators. By showing the audio level in dB, users now have a more accurate reference for signal strength. Mixcast 4’s audio ducking capability has been expanded, allowing the ducking control to be applied to the sound pads for automatic ducking when speaking over music beds or when effects are being played from the sound pads. Finally, front panel channel buttons are assigned as a Jump function for quick access to individual channel settings.

The Mixcast 4 v1.20 firmware update is planned to be available in February 2022. As part of Tascam’s commitment to Mixcast 4, Tascam is planning further updates after v1.20.
