Product Description

Audio creation made easy
Mixcast 4 makes professional content creation easy. For podcast creation, live streaming, event production or voice over, Mixcast 4 can mix and record mic input with internal background music, effect sounds and jingles via the trigger pads, and external audio input from your phone, PC or Bluetooth device.

Together with the Tascam Podcast Editor software you get a complete package including waveform editing and multi-track recording for all work steps from pre-production to completion.

Stress-free touch panel control
Equipped with four mic inputs and four individual headphones outputs, the Mixcast 4 is always ready for podcast production without complicated settings. It provides all audio-related operation and workflow needed for live-streaming, events, podcasts, and other applications. The auto-mixing function, for example, can automatically adjust optimal levels and set mic priority for a perfect mix.

And thanks to the 5-inch colour touch screen, you can intuitively access the well-structured menu and make the desired settings with just a few simple steps.

A complete workstation with all the functions you need
From audio recording to the mixing of recorded audio, the Mixcast 4 offers a complete production environment with multiple convenient functions such as 14-track recording direct to the unit’s SD card, Bluetooth audio input, an Aux input connector to easily mix and record phone conversations (with mix-minus) or other sound sources, and USB connectivity that allows the unit to add sounds from a computer.

You can even use Mixcast 4 as a 14-in/2-out USB audio interface with your favourite DAW software.

Enhance content with real-time sound effects
The Mixcast 4 comes with eight banks of fully customisable, illuminated sound pads which can be triggered during a podcast production or live broadcast. In addition to preset sound effects, users can flexibly assign new sounds, music or even mic sounds that have been pre-recorded on the unit.

The Mixcast 4 sound pads also allow for easy and on-time voice effects such as pitch transformation, reverb and more to make live streams and recordings even more interesting and fun.

Tascam Podcast Editor available for post-editing and control
The Tascam Podcast Editor offers simple and practical editing of audio content, track arming, as well as easy configuration and assignment of sound effects and background music to the sound pads.

There’s no need for expert knowledge on DAW software as Podcast Editor also offers intuitive graphics that will help users record audio easily using the Mixcast 4. Tascam Podcast Editor is designed specifically for Mixcast 4 and is available for both computers and mobile devices.
