The Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Creator US-42B is a computer audio interface that has been developed to enable anyone to broadcast their programs to the world with ease. By using a dedicated device with high-quality audio circuits for mic and instrument input you lay the foundation for impressive sound in high quality. Moreover, the MiNiSTUDIO Creator offers several techniques that can make programs more interesting in order to grow your audience. Professional broadcasters, for example, call pre-recorded clapping, cheering and other sounds with a press of a button. With the Sound Pads on the MiNiSTUDIO Creator you too can trigger such sounds simply by pressing buttons. There is also a ducking function that lowers the volume of background music during announcements. And you can use voice effects and reverb to improve the atmosphere and raise the level of excitement of a program.

Did we say audio quality? Providing your audience with sound that is easy to follow is also a way to make them feel more welcome. The MiNiSTUDIO Creator has excellent audio circuits inherited from music creation devices, so you can capture clear sound just by connecting a mic or other sound source.

Since you will operate this device while broadcasting, ease-of-use is very important. The user interface has as few controls as possible so that it can be used intuitively even by people who are not knowledgeable about audio equipment. In addition, the dedicated software used for selecting sound effects and triggered sounds, has an EASY page that anyone can use and an EXPERT page for advanced users with all the details you can imagine.

Use a Tascam MiNiSTUDIO Creator to make your own unique broadcast programs, or create podcasts that not only convince in terms of content, but also in terms of sound.
